DAYS ON THE MARKET Five

CO-OP AGENTS Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown, Keller Williams Advantage Realty

The Action: Clients of agents Philip Brown and Irene Kaushansky wanted a modern house in a central, yet vibrant family-friendly community filled with shops, bakeries, schools and parks, so this renovated four-bedroom residence midtown was an ideal match.

So they took several private and open house tours – and even arranged for a formal home inspection prior to the date any offers would be reviewed – to determine the premium they would pay in order to beat out rival buyers.

What They Got: This 2.5-storey, brick residence was built on a 20-foot by 122-foot lot sometime in the 1930s, but the past few owners redecorated and reconfigured the interiors with everything from a more open layout to a newly installed furnace and two updated bathrooms.

The kitchen features poured concrete counters and stainless steel beams and appliances, as well as 10-foot ceilings and hardwood floors that extend into the living and dining spaces.

Other entertaining areas include a partially finished basement, decks off the main and third floors and a fenced-in backyard with two parking spots accessible from a rear laneway.

The Agent's Take: "It was like the condo spaces [the buyers]had been living in with exposed steel beams, exposed duct work, and … an industrial design. It was very neat," says Mr. Brown.

"It also had tons of custom windows, which is unusual in older Little Italy and Seaton Village homes, so it wasn't dark like most of them, it was super bright."
