DAYS ON THE MARKET Seven

LISTING AGENTS Cameron Weir and Scott Hanton, Keller Williams Advantage Realty

The Action: The little street with the famous name is one of the most sought-after addresses in the Riverside-Leslieville area, even if it is a stone's throw from the GO train tracks. "The actual open house was very chaotic," says agent Cameron Weir. "We ended up having more than 300 people here the Saturday and Sunday." Multiple offers ensued, with the winning bid coming in $66,000 over asking.

What They Got: This renovated 19th-century home came with high ceilings, exposed brick and a working fireplace.

Wide plank flooring added to the heritage charm.

The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances.

The third-storey loft has a walk out to a balcony with a view of the CN Tower.

The Agent's Take: "The character is really what drew a lot of people to the home," says Mr. Weir. Lighting was improved to better showcase the home's rich history. "We really worked with the lights. We put, I think, nine new light fixtures in to reflect the great characteristics of the home."
