DAYS ON THE MARKET Nine

CO-OP AGENT Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: After conducting a few home tours, first-time buyers enlisted agent Ira Jelinek to facilitate the purchase of this detached house in the north end of their childhood hometown of Ajax.

What They Got: Directly across an open field, this brick and stone residence was designed on a 37-by-84-foot lot with roughly 2,300 square feet of living space, excluding the unfinished basement, and a double garage accessible via a laundry room.

Interior appointments are upscale, such as nine-foot ceilings, dark cherry hardwood floors and crown mouldings in the living and dining area and rear family room with a gas fireplace. The eat-in kitchen features custom back splashes, stainless steel appliances, pantry and walkout to a private, west-facing backyard.

An oak staircase with wrought iron railing leads up to four berber carpeted bedrooms, including a master suite with a walk-in closet and five-piece en suite, which is one of three bathrooms.

The Agent's Take: "[The buyers] were willing to sacrifice location in order to get the size they needed," Mr. Jelinek states.

"A house like that in Thornhill, for instance, it would be in and around $750,000, or in Toronto it would be at $1-million."

The impeccable condition of this house also satisfied the buyers. "They found something that is not brand new, but not an older house in Ajax. It's in the middle, just seven years old."
