LISTING AGENTS Adrienne, Tasi and Norm Farquhar, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty

The Action: Multimillion-dollar estates are standard fare in the community around James Gardens, so this detached residence on a 50-by-125-foot lot was posted for roughly $1.3-million for one month this spring. Without a solid offer, it was relisted later in the year closer to $1.2-million and picked up within two days.

What They Got: Hardwood floors and wood-burning fireplaces in areas like the living room are among traditional elements preserved in this roughly 60-year-old brick residence, which was also remodelled to feature a modern dining area, kitchen with granite and stainless-steel appointments and a fireside family room addition with a walkout to the south-facing yard.

For solitude, there is a main-floor office and four upper bedrooms, including a master suite with a third fireplace, a balcony and largest of four bathrooms, as well as an extra bedroom off a fireside recreation room in the basement.

Additional feature conveniences include a sauna, air-controlled wine cellar and attached garage.

The Agent's Take: "It's in a very exclusive neighbourhood of Edgehill Park," says agent Tasi Farquhar. "It's steps to James Garden with miles of bike and walking paths, a place to have a picnic on a Sunday and tennis courts."

Though this property was smaller – many lots are 10 feet wider – it was cozy. "It was a sweet home with a lot of charm and character," Ms. Farquhar states. "They had a 20-foot hedge on two sides of the property, so it was quite lovely. It made it very private and very natural, so it looked like a little English cottage."
