It has been several years since there was a sale in a row of four townhouses near the Islington Golf Club and Montgomery’s Inn.
So as soon as this three-bedroom model in the middle of the bunch opened its doors to the public, 20 showings were booked. In less than a week, five visitors came back with offers.
“We brought it out in the April market because it was a very strong market,” agent Niels Christensen said, “and there was an absence of inventory for this particular type of townhome in that particular location in Montgomery Estates.
“It’s not atypical in this market, in that location, for homes to get multiple offers.”
What they got
Since 2007, this 1,765-square-foot townhouse has undergone several makeovers. The roof, windows and garage door were all replaced. New fencing, stone patio and gardens were added to the 20-by-97-foot lot.
Inside, improvements range from refinished hardwood floors to a remodelled kitchen customized with marble countertops, breakfast island and ceramic backsplashes. There is also a living room with a gas fireplace. Meanwhile, a two-storey dining area opens to a bedroom above, which contains a walk-in closet and five-piece en suite – the largest of four bathrooms.
The 748-square-foot basement can be turned into a fourth bedroom or recreation space.
The agent’s take
“South of Bloor Street, townhomes tend to be three-storey, skinny types, but this was more an executive-style, two-storey, four-bedroom townhome,” Mr. Christensen said.
“It appealed to people in larger homes downsizing but wish to stay in the neighbourhood.”
