There is so much demand for Sunnylea properties that buyers will often enter into bidding wars to acquire one, says agent Terri Perras. So she was well prepared to handle multiple offers for this three-bedroom house near Sunnylea Junior School.
"It's very much a neighbourhood where young families are anxious to get into because the schools are really good," she says. "And you could also walk to Bloor from there."
The property value also lies in its 46 by 116-foot lot, which has ample room for a classic centre-hall plan with an attached garage and private backyard and deck.
"The size of the house was fine, but it certainly had the potential to add on a main floor family room out the back," says Ms. Perras.
Furthermore, the roughly 50-year-old house was improved with new roofing, windows and a boiler within the last few years, as well as a fully renovated kitchen.
A wood burning fireplace remains in the living room, which is separated from the dining room by a front foyer.
Nearly every room features hardwood floors, including the second-floor bedrooms, while carpeting cushions the lower-level recreation room.
A sole four-piece bathroom serves the house.
