DAYS ON THE MARKET Eight

LISTING AGENT Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: Aspiring homeowners in Cedarvale are often faced with bidding wars, which is what took place at this two-storey residence that backs onto Cedarvale Ravine. It had upwards of 30 parties through its front door and a proposal of $1.038-million put it in the same price bracket as neighbouring homes.

What They Got: Over time, various renovations have modified and expanded this three-bedroom and three-bathroom house so it has separate living and dining rooms, kitchen and skylit office and family room with a walkout to a fenced patio and a 25-by-146-foot lot with parking off a lane.

In addition, there is a basement suite with separate rear entrance, recreation room, kitchen and bedroom.

The Agent's Take: "The property is excellent and could be a forever house because it's backing onto the ravine and Cedarvale Park, which is an in-demand park for the area" says agent Ira Jelinek, who estimates properties backing onto the park only come up once a year.

"[Plus] it's about 40 years old, but it's been updated throughout."
