TAXES $4,656 (2012)


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

The Action: On a family-friendly street around the corner from Glendora Park in North York, this 11/2-storey residence hosted more than two dozen private showings and about three dozen attendees to an open house. With other very similar homes for sale nearby, it took a few weeks to negotiate a sale in the high $800,000s with the right buyer.

What They Got: Less than a decade after this detached brick residence was built in the 1950s, it was expanded with more living space to accommodate a lower-level guest suite off the recreation room and a main-floor family room with a gas fireplace and walkout to a deckwith a gas hookup.

The living room and open dining area have hardwood floors and an eat-in kitchen features ceramic floors and stainless steel appliances, including Fisher and Paykel brands.

Private quarters include two full bathrooms and four bedrooms spread out between the main and upper floors.

A private driveway provides three-car parking on the 50-by-110-foot lot.

The Agent's Take: "It's close to a wonderful park where they set up a hockey rink for the winter, there's a nice hill for tobogganing and two tennis courts in the summer, so for a family, it's awesome," agent Mark Oulahen said.

"It had a kitchen and family addition on the main, which also extended the basement with a nanny suite, so it was bigger and more functional than your storey-and-a half home in the area."
