The action

Located in an affluent suburb of Montreal, this roomy 3,000-square-foot detached home took only five days to sell. Hampstead, a planned municipality with meandering streets laid out according to “garden city” principles, is a hot real estate market these days.

“There’s huge demand but not many houses that come on the market,” said real estate agent Béatrice Baudinet. The house on Ferncroft got a lot of visits and several offers, she said.

What they got

This four-bedroom, two-storey home, with built-in two-car garage is tucked away in a quiet corner of Hampstead. A central focal point inside is the circular staircase.

The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. Although close to 60 years old, the house has had extensive upgrades in recent years.

“The selling price is considered a very good price for this neighbourhood,” Ms. Baudinet said. “There are many young couples with children or a child on the way who are drawn by the good schools and Hampstead’s excellent reputation.”
