DAYS ON THE MARKET Four

LISTING AGENTS Dianne Chaput and Colette Chaput-Villamizar, Royal LePage Estate Realty

The Action: On the edge of the Beach community, just up the street from the lake and R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant, this new stone residence was on the market for under $1.8-million last winter and reduced to about $1.63-million without securing an offer.

This year, new agents – Dianne Chaput and Colette Chaput-Villamizar – relisted it for the same price and coincidentally caught the interest of two buyers who made rival bids.

What They Got: To utilize the size of a 50- by 122-foot lot, this two-storey house residence was constructed about five years ago with 3,198-square feet of living space, including five bedrooms, four bathrooms and several entertaining areas, plus a sixth bedroom in the 684-square-foot basement.

On the main floor, there is a fireside living room and a separate dining area, both with hardwood floors and bay windows, as well as a rear kitchen and family room finished with a granite-topped island with storage and seating, high-end stainless steel appliances and two sets of sliding doors to a wide deck and hot tub.

The largest bedroom upstairs features cathedral ceilings, a walk-in closet and a five-piece bathroom.

Other luxury appointments include central vacuum and multi-zone sound systems and an attached garage.

The Agent's Take: "It was a custom-built house with five bedrooms and four bathrooms in the Beach where there aren't many of those … so it checks all the boxes for the modem consumer," says Ms. Chaput-Villamizar, who cites three bedrooms and two bathrooms as more of the norm.

"It has a nice open concept cook's kitchen and family room, plus a double car garage, and you don't get double car garages very often."

Local amenities were also a high priority for some buyers. "The big thing about this location is the school district. It's in the Courcelette school district, which is quite desirable," says Ms. Chaput-Villamizar.
