DAYS ON THE MARKET One
LISTING AGENT Anil Khera, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.
The Action: This three-storey townhouse has less modern decor than adjacent properties, so it was priced accordingly, which immediately caught the attention of first-time buyers and young families.
After eight hours on the market, half a dozen showings and negotiations between three serious buyers, a deal was signed before midnight.
What They Got: Within a community of freehold, brick townhouses built over a decade ago, this one was constructed with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, entertaining areas overlooking the front courtyard and a detached two-car garage off a rear lane.
The eat-in kitchen was updated with ceramic floors, but broadloom carpeting still appears in the combined living and dining area and all the upper-level rooms.
On the second floor, the family room features a gas fireplace and a front balcony.
The sky lit, third floor master suite is the largest sleeping quarters as it has a walk-in closet, five-piece bathroom and balcony.
Other assets include a full, but unfinished basement, security and central vacuum systems.
The property is steps from schools, trails and parks, including one at the end of the block, as well as a short drive from the GO Train station and highways 403 and 407.
The Agent's Take: "It's a very desirable area because it's self-contained and there's lots of green space," says agent Anil Khera.
"At that price point, you really get a lot of house [with]three-storeys and a high basement … and mechanically, the house was sound, so it just needs some cosmetic updates."
