LISTING AGENT JoAnne Gludish, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: On a quiet court in Norseman Heights, this detached bungalow sits on a pie-shaped lot. A steady stream of visitors made their way through the house over the course of a week and seven placed bids, only to be topped by the final winning offer of $860,000.
What They Got: Like many neighbouring homes, this raised bungalow was built in the 1960s with a three-bedroom plan and a fireside living room above the double garage. An adjacent dining area and separate kitchen has access to the patio and 42-by-142-foot grounds.
The lower level contains an office, recreation area and one of two full bathrooms.
The Agent's Take: "This was of particular interest because of its location – being on a court – and because it's on a very beautiful lot," says agent JoAnne Gludish.
"It's a nice quiet location and it's close to Bloor Street, so it's close to the subway, shops and excellent school districts."
Buyers could also envision how some remodelling could add value. "It has good-sized rooms and it's a good solid house," Ms. Gludish adds.
"Because of the size of the lot, you could expand it at the back without any problem."
