Earlier this spring, buyers were known to submit bully offers to scare away other shoppers whenever a desirable property popped up in Little Italy, including this renovated semi-detached residence listed by agent Lucais Shepherd.

"It's in a great neighbourhood, on a great street and the place was really well looked after," he says.

Since the ivy-clad structure was built in the early 20th century, the wiring, plumbing and HVAC systems were updated, the windows and roof were replaced and ceramic tile mosaics were laid in the foyer within the past few years.

The most dramatic makeover within the 1,958-square-foot house took place in the kitchen, which features new stainless steel appliances, pot lights and a large island with a breakfast bar. "It was a modern kitchen with western exposures and double glass doors that went out to the backyard, which had a sitting area," adds Mr. Shepherd.

A few original details were preserved, such as oak hardwood floors in most areas, such as the dining room, and an oak mantle on the wood burning fireplace in the living room.

The second floor houses two bedrooms, a small office and main four-piece bathroom, while the third floor is filled out with two just bedrooms.

The 758-square-foot basement contains a recreation room with a separate rear entrance, a new bathroom and laundry room.

Two cars can be parked off the rear lane. Alternatively, the property is a short walk to schools, a recreation centre and parks, as well as public transit, banks and restaurants.
