LISTING AGENT Bill Mohan, Sutton Group Realty Systems Inc.
The Action: The proximity of this detached, three-storey house to Queen Street traffic deterred some buyers, so there was a modest turnout at the agents-only open house and fewer requests than usual for private showings. But it didn't take long for a serious buyer to present an acceptable offer.
What They Got: A 25-by-124-foot lot lies beneath this late 19th-century, brick Victorian containing five bedrooms, four bathrooms and spacious public quarters with original hardwood floors and up to 10-foot ceilings with intricate trims and mouldings.
Formal entertaining and casual lounging is easy with a living room, fireside dining area and a family room with a second fireplace and access to the private landscaped garden, as well as a lower-level recreation room.
To retire for the night, there are three second-floor bedrooms, including one with a balcony, and two third-floor suites, one of which has a walk-in closet, skylight and balcony, plus a bedroom in the basement.
Modern improvements range from updated roof and operating systems to a new kitchen and concrete floor in the double garage off a laneway.
The Agent's Take: "It was a very beautiful home – a period piece in many respects – and [the sellers] had upgraded the mechanics," says agent Bill Mohan. "It had great curb appeal, it had a widow's walk up to the roof and it was architecturally intact."
