LISTING AGENT Elli Davis, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd
The Action: In a residential pocket between the St. Clair West subway station and the historic Casa Loma landmark, fierce bidding wars have broken out over the last few properties listed for sale, including this detached, brick residence.
Four buyers out of 26 who booked private showings later submitted strong offers.
What They Got: Built circa 1930 on a short treed street, this two-storey house is considered one of the older and smaller homes in the area.
It contains four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a fireside living room and separate dining room, as well as a rear sitting area and adjacent family room off the kitchen with a walkout to a private backyard and patio.
To store large items, there is an unfinished basement, detached garage and private driveway.
The Agent's Take: "It's in the Casa Loma enclave and it's a detached home with a private drive off Nina Street, so it was great for parking or for walking to the St. Clair and Bathurst area, subway, Loblaws and Joe [store]" agent Elli Davis said. "It featured nice, original charm of mouldings, hardwood floors, etcetera, so that was really well received."
