LISTING AGENT Joan Costa, Chestnut Park Real Estate Ltd.

CO-OP AGENT Mark Aliassa, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: Earlier this summer, nearly 100 interested parties signed up for group showings of this classic, stone residence in Lawrence Park. A few buyers dreaded a bidding war, so they presented their offers at different times, but the house still sold for the full asking price.

What They Got: During the nearly 40 years of ownership, the previous owners of this more than 70-year-old house personalized the space, from creating a family room with a gas fireplace and double doors out to a covered stone terrace, to installing heated floors in the expanded eat-in kitchen and two out of three bathrooms.

Emphasizing the classic feel of the interiors are panelled walls in the lower-level hall and fireside recreation room, as well as hardwood floors and crown mouldings in the fireside living room, formal dining area and nearly all four bedrooms upstairs.

For vehicular storage, there is a private drive and rebuilt double garage on the 50-by-150-foot lot.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s an all-round, good family home, well-situated and nicely landscaped with good curb appeal,” agent Joan Costa said. “There are a lot of new builds … but the thing about original homes built there [like this] is that they have their own distinctive look and feel.”
