The action

The living room has a wood-burning fireplace.

Agent Ken Mazurek saw properties trade at a much slower rate this spring than in previous years, so this semi-detached house was cautiously listed for less than $1-million during the summer when many buyers traditionally vacation. The sellers were rewarded with two busy open houses and nearly 140 private showings.

“There were a few homes in the area that hadn’t sold, so we looked at the range of what people had been asking and priced it at the lower end to attract some attention and get people in the door,” Mr. Mazurek said.

“We ended up with 15 offers, so the activity was wild for the last week of July; we were shocked.”

What they got

Hardwood floors adorn the dining room, pictured, and living room.

Less than a five-minute walk from Christie Pits Park, this 127-year-old house has its own canopy of tall trees on the front lawn and in the private backyard.

Reflecting the outdoor setting, natural wood trims and hardwood floors adorn areas such as the living and dining rooms. The former also preserves a wood-burning fireplace and 12-foot ceilings.

Over the past decade, new wiring, roofing, front porch, back deck and stone walkway to the garage were installed. Renovations were also done in the bathroom amid four bedrooms upstairs and the one-bedroom basement suite.

The agent’s take

A tall canopy of trees encloses the backyard.

“Six seventy-five Shaw is one of six houses which are affectionately known as the Castles of Shaw for the turrets at the front of the house,” Mr. Mazurek said.

“Also, most of these houses only have waist-high fences in the backyard, so the neighbours know each other very well. They even have several events throughout the year which they dub ‘Castle parties.’”
