DAYS ON THE MARKET Three
LISTING AGENT JoAnne Gludish, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd
The Action: On a well-trafficked street between James Gardens and St. George's Golf and Country Club, this detached residence was staged with stylish furniture and decor to gain extra leverage in the eyes of discerning buyers.
Two similar offers came in after a dozen couples came through within the first few days.
What They Got: For the most part, this more than 50-year-old house has a classic centre hall plan with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, plus an attached garage and maturely treed 55-by-186-foot lot with a sprinkler system.
Formal affairs would be well suited in the fireside living room and dining room with hardwood floors and crown mouldings, while casual gatherings can assemble off the kitchen in a family room addition with a gas fireplace and rear walkout or a lower-level recreation area with a wood-burning stone fireplace.
The Agent's Take: "There wasn't a lot on the market at the time, but it had a very large lot and the house has extremely good bones," says agent JoAnne Gludish, who notes that most properties average 50-by 120-feet. "Usually those two-storey centre halls don't have a family room on the main floor and this one did."
