DAYS ON THE MARKET Seven
LISTING AGENTS Jill Stewart and Robert LePage, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: On the day offers could be presented for this four-level side split residence, three buyers made competing offers.
What They Got: On a quiet court in Humber Valley, this detached residence sits on a 45-by-241-foot lot surrounded by a deep front lawn along the driveway to the double garage and a treed backyard with a fenced, in-ground pool, hot tub, cooking station and shed.
Cosmetic and mechanical improvements were done inside this over 50-year-old structure, which features an eat-in kitchen with a side exit, a rear dining area and sunken living room with a fireplace.
Heading down to the lower level, there is a fireside family room and a sky lit solarium with a rear walkout.
Further down in the basement, there is a bedroom, games room and one of four bathrooms.
On the upper floor, there are three bedrooms, including a master suite with a walk-in closet, full bathroom and deck.
The Agent's Take: "It's a big, sprawling side split that has been renovated extensively over the last couple of years," says agent Robert LePage, who finds few adjacent properties have as much land as this.
"Half the lot was landscaped with the swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and gardens, and the other half was like a ravine."
