LISTING AGENT Andrea Morrison, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: Just a few steps away from Humber Valley school and park, just south St. George’s Golf and Country Club, this custom residence sat on the market for some time before it was relisted with agent Andrea Morrison, who lowered the price to less than $2.6-million and rearranged the furnishings to complement the space. Those efforts helped convince six serious buyers to take a tour, and two returned with offers around the same time.

What They Got: About two years ago, this stately stone house was custom built for a professional landscaper who also designed the 50-by-175-foot, pie-shaped grounds with gardens and a fenced in-ground pool.

Inside, there is nearly 4,200 square feet of living space to accommodate a grand entertaining area with a gas fireplace, a dining room and a fireside family room with a coffered ceiling, in addition to an eat-in kitchen with a granite finishes, crown mouldings and double patio doors.

Hardwood floors appear throughout, including a guest bedroom, media room and recreation area with a fireplace and wet bar in the 1,590-square-foot basement.

For ultimate convenience, there are five bathrooms, including three connected to four out of the five bedrooms upstairs, a main-floor laundry room, central vacuum, sound and irrigation systems, as well as a built-in double garage.

The Agent’s Take: “It was a beautiful house custom built for the owner,” says agent Andrea Morrison. “Because it wasn’t a spec home, it’s much more luxurious in the finishes.”

Even the outdoor living space was extravagant. “It was all beautifully developed in the back with a pool, patio and cabana,” Ms. Morrison adds. “And all the stonework was done beautifully.”
