DAYS ON THE MARKET Four

LISTING AGENT Nutan Brown, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

The Action: Only 10 shoppers had been through this semi-detached house in Lambton before a bully offer triggered a bidding war between three bidders.

What They Got: This larger-than-average house dating back to the 1960s features a classic brick façade and hardwood floors in all three bedrooms, the living and dining rooms and the lower level recreation area.

The two bathrooms were modernized and the kitchen opened up and refinished with cork floors, quartz counters, stainless steel appliances and a new patio door.

There are two patios hidden among the evergreen and hardwood trees on the sprawling 31-by-153-foot grounds, as well as a new cedar shed with electricity, a private driveway and carport.

The Agent's Take: "In that price range, it's really hard to find a property with that kind of finish and setting . "It had a ravine setting in the back because it had so many trees.," said agent Nutan Brown as an example of its leafy privacy.

The house itself had a fresh and open feel. "It was renovated beautifully," she said.
