The action

Some house hunters were uncertain about buying this semi-detached house as it sits next to a Masonic Temple that might be torn down and rezoned for other uses. However, it still drew strong buyer interest, especially once word got out that the producers of the HGTV show Property Brothers were sniffing around.

“[HGTV’s] buyers were interested in the property and the same day or day after, we got multiple offers, so the Property Brothers decided not to compete on this. But in our social media network, it helped generate even more interest in the property,” agent Bryon Howard said.

“So this one sold faster than others.”

Construction on the home was completed in early 2018.

What they got

Quartz countertops and high-end appliances appear in an open concept kitchen between the living and dining areas.

Re/Max House of Real Estate /Re/Max House of Real Estate

In early 2018, construction was completed on this home – one of a pair of two-storey homes replacing an old bungalow. The house has 1,767 square feet of living space, with 10-foot ceilings and a rear double garage on a lot spanning more than 25 feet wide.

The wood-and-stucco façade has a modern vibe that extends inside, where quartz countertops and high-end appliances appear in an open concept kitchen between the living and dining areas. The living room features a floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace and backyard access.

The second floor is set up with three bedrooms, including one with a walk-in closet and largest of four bathrooms. A guest room and recreation area round out the basement.

The agent’s take

The semi-detached house features 1,767 square feet of living space and 10-foot ceilings.

“This is a new build in the inner city,” Mr. Howard said. “It’s on a pie-shaped lot, so the square footage wasn’t that big, but it had a unique L-shaped main floor, which gave extra privacy in the home, and there was a really nice yard.”
