LISTING AGENTS Beth Sulman and Gil Goldstein, Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc.
The Action: Mid-February, buyers canvassing the area around Christie Pits had their pick of private residences, yet this two-storey rowhouse moved a buyer – one amid a crowd of 30 at the open house – to present a bully offer $85,000 over the list price.
What They Got: The previous owner of this more than century-old house used their professional design background to modernize the interiors with new mechanics, an open concept living and dining area with wide plank cedar floors. The upgraded kitchen has a back door to the fenced yard on the 19-by-49-foot lot.
The main staircase leads up to an open den and two bedrooms, including one with his-and-her closets, while a secondary stairwell heads down to a workshop space, the smaller of two bathrooms and a rear exit.
The Agent's Take: "It was completely finished; it was gorgeous inside," agent Beth Sulman says. "The kitchen had been renovated, it was a perfect size for the house … and they did everything, so in the end it was a jewel-box of a house."
Though it's common to come across row houses in the community, few have such a sought-after locale. "What's atypical is the street because it's a dead end street. There are only a few of them off Clinton [Street] and Gore Street, which is south of College, but this just south of Bloor," Ms. Sulman says. "Plus, it's steps to the Christie subway."
