The Action: One of the back neighbours to St. Helen's Church is this two-storey townhouse which was one of the few properties for sale in Dufferin Grove last fall. The temping price under $500,000 brought in more than 50 visitors, including several willing to engage in a bidding war.
What They Got: Ten years ago, a new roof was installed above this more-than-century-old residence with hardwood floors in three upper bedrooms, traditional living and dining areas and ceramic floors in the cooking quarters.
Additional areas for consuming and cooking meals are in the basement, which also has one of two full bathrooms and a walkout to the 16-by-98-foot grounds with a private west-facing backyard and laneway access.
The Agent's Take: "It's a great neighbourhood between Dundas and College, so you've got great accessibility by transit and otherwise," agent Anthony Coretti says. "And you're [in] walking distance to everything."
The townhouse itself also has great potential for renovators. "It's original, but a solid, well-kept European home," Mr. Coretti says. "If you look at a semi on a 16[-foot lot] versus something like this, the whole lot is being used as opposed to a semi, where you lose space to a walkway."
