LISTING AGENT Lucais Shepherd, Re/Max West Realty Inc.

The Action: There were multiple offers on this detached house after nearly 30 buyers had private tours.

What They Got: This 2½-storey brick residence offers a great deal of space and privacy with five bedrooms, four bathrooms – one per floor – and several entertaining areas, plus a double garage off the mutual driveway.

On the main floor, there is a large foyer and a fireside living room, as well as a rear dining room with coffered ceilings and recently remodelled kitchen with stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, a granite-topped island, pot lights and patio doors.

For a more casual setting, there is an open recreation area in the basement and a sitting area off the master suite on the third floor.

Updates to this century-old Edwardian include new windows, wiring, oak floors and front-loading washer and dryer.

The Agent's Take: "[Properties]don't typically sell that much over asking price, so there was a very high demand for this home and location," says agent Lucais Shepherd. "It's in Regal Heights, close to Regal Road [Junior]Public School."

This house also had big advantages over others. "It's a little bit larger than what's typical on this street … and it was detached, making it more desirable," Mr. Shepherd said. "On that street, there are more semis than detached [homes]"
