Days on the market: Five

Listing agents: Andre Kutyan and Robert Greenberg, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The kitchen is equipped with a centre island, granite countertops and a separate pantry.

The action: Deer Park properties are so sought after, this semi-detached house near Upper Canada College had a serious buyer with a bid in hand before it even formally listed, as it was being staged and repainted in preparation for house hunters in April.

“We did receive an unsolicited offer from someone before it went to market, but my clients didn’t want to entertain it,” agent Andre Kutyan said.

“The weekend of the ice storm, we cancelled the open house on the one day, but we still had people showing up … so it tells you how in-demand the area is.”

For entertaining indoors, there are living and dining areas and a lower-level recreation room.

What they got: Deer Park is well-established, but scattered throughout the neighbourhood are newer homes, such as this 3,500-square-foot residence custom-built by Shram Homes in 2007.

Outdoor space with south-facing exposures are accessible from each level, from a third-floor balcony off one of four bedrooms to a deck off a family room with a gas fireplace.

For entertaining indoors, there are living and dining areas and a lower-level recreation room.

There are five bathrooms, two laundry rooms and a kitchen equipped with a centre island, granite countertops and a separate pantry.

The agent’s take: “It was built 11 years ago, so it’s much bigger than older semis in the area, but on par for what you’d get in a new home,” Mr. Kutyan said.

“Even though the lot is only 21½-feet wide, because the house goes to the lot line, it’s bigger than a detached home [would be] on that lot.”

Although this home has a built-in garage, buyers embraced its pedestrian-friendly spot. “It’s [has] great walkability to Yonge and St Clair, St. Clair streetcar, retail on Yonge Street and Upper Canada College,” Mr. Kutyan said.

“In general … a lot of people are buying in the area to be able to walk to these private schools. They don’t want to commute to bring their kids to school as the city gets bigger and busier.”
