DAYS ON THE MARKET Six

LISTING AGENT Terri Perras, Royal LePage Terrequity Realty

The Action: Last fall was the last time a townhouse was available in this freehold community in Islington Village, so about 50 buyers quickly descended on this end unit when it came on the market. In less than a week, seven visitors made their propositions known, and one who added nearly $50,000 to the list price became the new owner.

What They Got: At the end of a row of roughly decade-old townhouses, this three-storey unit has an over 2,000-square-foot plan with an attached garage, private driveway and 21-by-87-foot lot.

Ceilings are nine feet above a kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, granite counters and hardwood floors, as well as the open dining area and entertaining space with a gas fireplace and a walkout to a private, south-facing backyard and patio.

Laundry facilities and three bedrooms were assigned to the second floor, including a master suite with a walk-in closet and five-piece bathroom, which is the largest of four bathrooms.

Carpeting cushions the lower-level guest room and a third-floor family room.

Monthly fees for snow removal and landscaping are $135.

The Agent's Take: "It's a fairly small townhouse complex and it's well-situated in the Bloor and Islington area," says agent Terri Perras. "And there are not a lot of townhouses around there; it's mostly detached homes."

This model also offered more space than nearby towns on lots averaging 14 to 18 feet wide.

"It has a premium location within the complex because it was an end unit and at the end of a cul-de-sac, so it sat on a larger pie-shaped property, offering a little more privacy and gave it the sense of a semi-detached home with extra light," Ms. Perras explains.

"Not all of them in the development have a third floor, but this one did and it's a great space for a family."
