DAYS ON THE MARKET Seven
LISTING AGENT Julie Kinnear, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty
The Action: Buyers hoping to reside close to Roncesvalles shops, schools and parks closely watch for available properties, such as this updated, two-storey row house marketed this spring. It promptly sold on the offer date for $69,100 over the $797,900 list price.
What They Got: The brick façade, leaded glass windows and bevelled glass entry door are original elements of this 1,055-square-foot Edwardian, which also retained classic hardwood floors in the open living and dining areas and three upper bedrooms.
Over the past eight years, the sellers installed updated wiring and heating systems, front porch, detached garage and south-facing, two-tiered deck, as well as remodelled the larger of two bathrooms and kitchen with stainless steel appliances, tile floors, quartz counters and glass backsplashes.
The 520-square foot basement offers storage and an exit to the front of the 14-by-127-foot lot.
The Agent's Take: "It's in prime Roncesvalles, which is one of the hot areas of Toronto, which is always a bonus, and it's on the south side, so it means you get lots of extra sun," agent Julie Kinnear says.
"This particular house was in a really good school district too."
Buyers were also content with this row house's compact, yet stylish space. "They don't come up very often," Ms. Kinnear says.
"It was a cute little package. The kitchen was all done and it had great mechanics, so it was in really good condition."
