LISTING AGENT Nigel Denham, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division

The Action: When listed, this three-bedroom-plus-solarium suite was the only available unit in an established mid-rise south of Upper Canada College. About two dozen showings were lined up over the space of a month, yielding two offers. It sold to the better bid of $60,200 over the list price.

What They Got: In recent years, about $200,000 was spent improving the appearance of this third-floor suite, from smooth ceilings and hardwood floors in the living and dining areas to two remodelled bathrooms and a kitchen with ceramic floors and peninsula with built-in appliances and breakfast bar seating.

Enclosed areas of the 1,750-square-foot space include a glass-lined solarium and three bedrooms, including a master with a walk-in closet, as well as laundry facilities.

Other conveniences include two parking spots and monthly fees of $1,750 to pay for water, heating and gym.

The Agent's Take: "It has superior square footage with three full bedrooms, which made it unique, especially for around $1-million," says agent Nigel Denham. "There are a few [three-bedroom plans], but ours was one of few renovated completely from top to bottom."

Buyers were also pleased with this unit's surroundings. "The proximity to Yonge is quite good – it has an 85 walk score to Yonge and St. Clair – so the subway, commercial shops and restaurants are more available than people think," Mr. Denham notes.

"[Plus] it has beautiful treetop views of Forest Hill facing west … so you're kind of in an urban environment, but it doesn't feel like it in the suite, so it was quite special in that sense."
