LISTING AGENTS Sue Mills and Sarah O'Neill, Royal LePage Signature Realty
The Action: At any given time, Leaside has a fair number of vacancies with special attention given to upscale dwellings. So the sellers of this detached custom house quickly accepted a full price offer after 10 showings and an open house.
What They Got: In 2013, Cezanne Homes completed this brick and stone residence with about 3,000 square feet of living space, including four bedrooms with hardwood floors and either private or semi-private access to one of five bathrooms, plus a built-in garage and private driveway.
To cater to different activities, there is an office, a living room with a gas fireplace and 12-foot ceiling and an elevated dining area appointed with wainscotting, as well as a rear kitchen and fireside family room with coffered ceilings, a Caesarstone-topped island and French doors to a deck.
The 1,552-square-foot basement provides a guest bedroom and fireside recreation area with double doors to stairs ascending to the 35-by-137-foot lot.
The Agent's Take: "It was truly a gorgeous house with a combination of luxury finishes that you'd expect in this price point, but it also had a really great use of space so it was cozy and great for family living and a great entertaining home," says agent Sarah O'Neill.
"It had a fabulous family room open to the kitchen, which isn't a usual thing to see in these new homes, but the seller installed custom banquet seating in the kitchen with storage underneath."
The design of utilitarian spaces was also highly desirable. "It also had – which is rarely found in this size home – a main floor office," Ms. O'Neill states.
"[Plus] you could park an SUV in the garage. Many of the homes that have a garage are very small."
