The Action: This past fall, Clairlea produced a small scattering of properties, including a tiny fraction sold in bidding wars. One from the latter category is this detached, brick residence that was staged with traditional furnishings in preparation for the open house, which was cancelled upon the receipt of three offers.
What They Got: For the past six decades, the same homeowners resided in this house with three bedrooms and one full bathroom upstairs, as well a den, living and dining rooms with hardwood floors hidden beneath the carpets, and a kitchen with a rear sunroom exiting to deck and perennial gardens.
- Storage can be found in the partially finished basement or on the 44-by-125-foot lot, which once had a garage at the end of the private driveway.
The Agent's Take: "It's a really cute, detached, family home in a more affordable area of Scarborough – the Clairlea-Birchmount neighbourhood," agent Miranda McKenna says. "It's an affordable pocket that is safe, has nice streets and nice-sized homes."
Young families in particular appreciated this house's mint condition. "It was a very charming house with a beautiful yard with lots of gardens, and it had three full bedrooms upstairs and one on the main floor, that could be used as another bedroom or another living area," Ms. McKenna states.
