DAYS ON THE MARKET Six

LISTING AGENTS Adrienne, Tasi and Norm Farquhar, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty

The Action: There were few other properties in Burnhamthorpe Gardens on the market last fall, so this detached house with a double garage had well-attended open houses, which lead to the presentation of several offer to the sellers and a sale price $125,000 above listing.

What They Got: Formal living and dining rooms remain intact in a centre-hall residence modified and expanded in 2006 to create a 2,886-square-foot space with a rear family room with a gas fireplace and more open eat-in kitchen with an island, granite counters and sliding doors to a deck and fenced 53-by-154-foot lot.

The skylit staircase connects to a 1,408-square-foot basement with a fireside recreation room, den and guest bedroom, as well as four second-floor bedrooms, all with access to one of five bathrooms, and one also with a walk-in closet.

The Agent's Take: "It's a great neighbourhood," says agent Tasi Farquhar. "It's close to good schools on a good-sized lot, close to shopping and good proximity to the airport and easy access to the highway system to get to the west and the east."

In the past few years, new homes have been erected alongside renovated ones like this. "There aren't a lot of homes that are so spacious, but this had good flow and good space, so as a family home, it was very welcoming," Ms. Farquhar notes.

"[Plus] there was a nice skylight … that brightened up that whole upper level, as well as cast light to the main floor via the stairwell."
