LISTING AGENTS Jeff, Mark, Norah and Paul Oulahen, Re/Max Realtron Realty Inc.

The Action: This detached, 11/2 storey residence is one of the more affordable properties in the community just south of the Newmarket Cemetery. It drew more than a dozen buyers to its door and a viable offer in a few days rather than a few weeks or months, which is typically needed for the sale of properties nearby.

What They Got: Practical updates extended the livability of this roughly 50-year-old house with a private driveway, garage and west-facing garden with a water fountain, jungle gym and gazebo-covered hot tub on a 66-by 174-foot lot.

The back deck offers entry into a rear sunroom on the main floor, where there are traditional living and dining rooms with hardwood floors, an eat-in kitchen, master suite and one of two full bathrooms.

The upper and lower levels feature two bedrooms and a partially finished space respectively.

The Agent's Take: "It's a very small house and it's unique. It kind of feels like a cottage with a big backyard with a big pond and deck," agent Mark Oulahen said. "This lot is 66 by 174 feet, but most would be 40 or 50 [foot frontages] and not that deep."

Buyers also appreciated the home's condition. "It's one of the more original homes on Main Street," Mr. Oulahen added. "The current owners did a lot of work on waterproofing, some work on the bathrooms and landscaping."
