LISTING AND CO-OP AGENT Bill Thom, Re/Max Realtron Realty Inc.

The Action: In early February, this detached residence opened its doors to over two dozen potential buyers, one of whom was a local homeowner looking to purchase a larger house in the well-established North York community.

What They Got: On a 34-by-169-foot pie-shaped lot at the far end of a cul-de-sac, this two-storey, brick house shelters 3,800-square-feet of living space finished with hardwood and ceramic tile floors, halogen pot lights and seven bevelled glass French doors.

Ceilings rise nine-feet above the library, living and dining rooms and fireside family room, plus an eat-in kitchen with a walkout to a relatively new 22-by-13-foot deck and stone patio.

Other highlights include a main-floor laundry room and winding, sky-lit staircase to a lower-level gym and five upper bedrooms. The master suite contains a walk-in closet and the largest of five bathrooms.

Operations run smoothly with a new roof and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems installed after 2009.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s typical for this street, which is a fairly new street created 20 years ago. But the rest of the neighbourhood [homes] are smaller than this in the 2,000 to 2,200 [square foot range],” agent Bill Thom said.

“[The buyers] liked the welcoming, open concept, two-storey foyer; the kitchen is a large size; and it has a big side yard and backyard, which is what is lacking in their current home.”

The half finished basement also had benefits. “They can finish it the way they want,” Mr. Thom said.
