DAYS ON THE MARKET Four

LISTING AGENTS Elli and Neely Davis and Noam Muscovitch, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: On a 40- by 111-foot corner lot just a few hundred metres east of High Park, this three-storey house was given a public open house and four days of market exposure before any offers were reviewed.

About a dozen visitors took a tour and some later joined a bidding war that ended with a buyer sweetening the deal with $351,000 on top of the list price.

What They Got: As the stately brick façade indicates, this three-storey house retains intricate details and formal entertaining spaces dating back to 1913, however, it also features some modern dressings and high-end appliances inside.

A grand foyer welcomes guest to the main floor, which has a library, a formal dining room with hand painted frescos and a large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, oak panels, beamed ceilings and windows framing views of the backyard.

A solarium and recently renovated kitchen have walkouts to a deck and a perennial garden with a patio and pond.

More private quarters consist of an office on the second floor, along with three bedrooms and two of four bathrooms.

The third-floor master suite is an open loft space with a walk-in closet and four-piece bathroom.

The basement contains a kitchenette and recreation room with a gas fireplace, full bathroom and a walkout through the double garage.

For an additional $150,000, the buyers also acquired an adjacent lot to the south – measuring 27 by 92 feet – that the sellers severed with the intention of constructing a separate house fronting onto Indian Road.

The Agent's Take: "It was very charming and full of antiques they were selling off, so it was fun to look around," says agent Elli Davis. "It's a beautiful area with lovely wide, treed streets and is very close to the activity in Bloor West Village and the Roncesvalles area."
