LISTING AGENTS Niels and Doris Christensen, Re/Max Professionals Inc.

THE ACTION: Listed under $1.4-million, this custom, two-storey residence near the Islington Golf Club presented a more affordable alternative to buyers looking to get into an expensive neighbourhood, agents said.

WHAT THEY GOT: About a decade ago, a bungalow on a 63-by 120-foot lot was expanded into this 3,200-square-foot residence with five bedrooms on the second floor, five bathrooms and several entertaining areas, plus a built-in double garage.

Interior appointments range from tray ceilings, pot lights and hardwood floors in the enclosed dining room to fireplaces and double height ceilings in the front living room and rear family room, which has a walkout to a wide deck and fenced-in yard that is also accessible via an eat-in kitchen with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry.

Broadloom carpeting cushions a lower level bedroom and recreation room.

THE AGENT’S TAKE: “It’s one of the larger homes in the neighbourhood with five bedrooms,” says agent Doris Christensen. “It’s a great opportunity to live in the neighbourhood because this home wasn’t new, it was more affordable than something brand new, but of the same quality.”
