LISTING AND CO-OP AGENTS Jill Stewart and Robert LePage, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: There were about a dozen showings for this Cape Cod classic in Humber Valley Village.
What They Got: This 50-year-old house was renovated and expanded on its 55-by-142-foot lot, but it retains its brick façade, dormers and centre hall plan with the entry foyer situated between a fireside living room and a dining room.
Across the rear, there is a fireside family room with a walkout to a tiered deck, and a separate kitchen with a gas fireplace in the rounded breakfast area.
There is a lower level office, game room and fireside recreation area.
Upstairs, there are laundry facilities, two of three bathrooms and four bedrooms, including three with walk-in or his and her closets.
Amenities include hardwood floors in most areas, a high-efficiency furnace and security and central vacuum systems.
Outdoors, there is a private driveway to the attached garage and a south-facing backyard.
The Agent's Take: "It was a very charming Cape Code [residence]that was very deceiving from the street in that it had a three-storey addition added to it about 10 years ago … that doubled it in size," agent Jill Stewart says. "All the rooms were really spacious with great light."
