The Action: In May, Beaches home buyers with a budget of $2-million could peruse a small selection of homes, including this custom residence. Nearly 100 private and public tours were conducted and a deal was negotiated during the long weekend.
What They Got: In 2007, a bungalow on a 50-by-110-foot lot provided the foundations for this two-storey house with 2,688-square-feet of living space, an in-ground heated pool, private driveway and detached garage.
The front lawn is visible from separate living and family rooms with hardwood floors, while the backyard and deck is accessible from a dining area and eat-in kitchen appointed granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a pantry.
For casual entertaining, there is a den amid three upper bedrooms, including a master with a walk-in closet and five-piece bathroom with heated floors like the three other bathrooms, as well as a carpeted recreation room and soundproof theatre in the 1,179-square-foot basement.
The Agent's Take: "Most of the recently built homes have been built on 25-foot wide lots whereas this one was 50-feet," agent and stager, Anna Kemp said.
"The open houses were held on some of the first warm days we had after a long cold winter, so the idea of lounging by the pool was pretty appealing."
The interior renovations were even more stunning. "It was beautifully designed: [the sellers] completely opened it up, which was its best feature," Ms. Kemp said.
"It had great flow on the main floor with two sets of French doors that opened up to the backyard. When they are open it's really quite spectacular. It's a great home for entertaining."
