The action: Just north of Bloor West Village, this semi-detached house hosted public and agents-only open houses, as well as a few showings over the span of a week. Multiple offers quickly followed.
What they got: This two-storey, brick house benefits from many new components, such as an updated roof, wiring, plumbing and kitchen with ceramic floors, a peninsula and back door to a covered deck, south-facing yard and garage exiting to a lane behind the private 15-by-120-foot lot.
Hardwood floors grace the living room, which features a wood-burning fireplace, an open dining area and lower-level recreation space, plus three bedrooms upstairs amidst the largest of two bathrooms.
The agent's take: "703 Annette was a fantastic updated three-bedroom house," Adrienne Farquhar said.
"Its main selling points were the location [with] great schools associated with the home, a detached garage, finished basement and updated open-concept main floor with a renovated kitchen."
