The action

Intricate ceiling trims adorn the main level.

Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

Near the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, a similar, fairly new residence sold for $3.7-million in 2017, but only fetched $3.5-million last year. Given that outcome, the sellers of this luxury home – which was listed nearby at the same time – dropped their own price, but resisted buyers seeking steep bargains.

“Prices have softened since 2017 – there’s no secret – so it’s up to sellers to be proactive with their pricing to make sure they’re in line with market conditions,” agent Andre Kutyan said.

“[Buyers] originally came with a lowball offer a couple weeks before and we couldn’t get anything done. So, we were talking about relisting this in the new year at a lower price, but they came back with a significantly improved offer and were able to get a deal done at $3.48-million.”

What they got

The two main-floor entertaining areas both have gas fireplaces.

Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

This four-bedroom home was built last year on a 52-foot-by-115-foot lot. It has a limestone façade, built-in double garage and multiple walkouts to a fenced-in backyard.

Inside, on the main floor, intricate trim and ceiling treatments decorate the study, eat-in kitchen and two entertaining areas, each with gas fireplaces. Upstairs, the master bathroom, the largest of seven bathrooms in the house, has a nine-piece setup. The lower level has a guest bedroom and recreation space with heated, porcelain floors.

The agent’s take

The master suite features a nine-piece ensuite bathroom.

Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

“It has high-end finishes for a custom home,” Mr. Kutyan said.

“[Furthermore], the average lot in that pocket is about 40 feet in width so when you have a 52-footer … [with] a 4,000-square-foot home like this, it’s rare compared to 40-footers, which might be 3,000 or 3,500 square feet at most.”
