LISTING AGENTS Dianne and Colette Chaput, Royal LePage Estate Realty

The Action: Roughly 30 house hunters were attracted to this detached house at the top of a short street in the Beaches. Given that there is little turnover on the street – not to mention larger, pricier residences closer to the lake, beach and boardwalk – a trio of buyers promptly returned with offers, including one at more than $1.2-million.

What They Got: This two-storey residence is a cozy entertaining space with a wide foyer, a fireside living area, a formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen with access to a handy deck, professionally landscaped yard, private driveway and double garage.

Areas for more casual play consist of a lower-level recreation room and a second-floor study that could be used as a third bedroom.

Added bonuses include two full bathrooms, including a spa-like facility with heated floors and towel rack upstairs, new wiring and sprinklers for easy maintenance of the 50- by 120-foot lot.

The Agent's Take: "The location was really great, located just south of Queen Street … and at the bottom of the street is the lake, so you're really close to the water," says agent Colette Chaput. "And that price point is really rare. South of Queen Street on that street, you're at the $1.5-million mark or higher."

Despite the property's smaller stature, it still had room for many extras. "There was a big yard, so you could put a pool in," says Ms. Chaput. "A garage isn't that common in the [Beaches]area, so that was a nice bonus."
