LISTING AGENT JoAnne Gludish, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: Some staging was done to enhance the physical attributes of this detached residence with a double garage, which the sellers hoped to sell in less than a week. Their expectations were met when nearly a third of the two dozen visitors returned to present strong offers.

What They Got: This brick house on a 49-by-140-foot lot is surrounded by private outdoor space, from a partially enclosed front courtyard to a fenced backyard abutting an extensive ravine system.

The interior has a formal air established with a two-storey foyer, living and dining rooms with moulded ceilings and French doors, and an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, ceramic finishes and sliding doors to a deck with stairs to a patio.

For other activities, there is an office and fireside family room with hardwood floors, as well as a lower level recreation room with a fireplace, wet bar, secondary kitchen and patio doors.

At the top of the winding staircase is a landing to four bedrooms, including a master suite with one of four bathrooms.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s a really good house that backs onto a ravine,” says agent JoAnne Gludish. “It was a very large house and it showed extremely well.”
