DAYS ON THE MARKET Five

LISTING AGENT Andrea Stark, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division

The Action: Late spring, several Summerhill homeowners vied for the attention of buyers, including roughly 120 parties who examined this contemporary, semi-detached residence during either private showings or public open houses. On the offer date, the sellers chose the better of two proposals near the $2.195-million list price.

What They Got: In 2007, the brick shell of a century-old home was left intact while the interiors were gutted and expanded with a three-storey glass addition overlooking a backyard and two-car parking off the 25-by-129-foot lot.

Across the rear, walls of windows illuminate an open office, family room and kitchen with ceramic floors, Douglas fir cabinetry, stone-topped counters and island, as well as a second-floor master suite with a Juliet balcony, the largest of five bathrooms and stairs to a third-floor family room with a Juliet balcony.

The original area of the 3,455-square-foot residence includes a living room with a gas fireplace, adjacent dining area and three more bedrooms upstairs.

The 1,222-square-foot basement has its own kitchen, bedroom and rec room with a walkout to a sunroom open to a deck above.

The Agent's Take: "The location is amazing on a little crescent that is a short walk to Yonge and Summerhill, the subway, the Five Thieves or to Yorkville," says agent Andrea Stark.

"It's not on a through street, and very close to it is Cottingham [Junior Public] School, which is a very small and very good public school with a park beside it."

The house itself is packed with pleasant surprises. "It's quite a big semi: 25-feet wide with the lane in the back," Ms. Stark says. "It's deceiving from the front because it looks like a classic house, yet it was completely modern inside."
