The action

On one side of the house, the main floor was arranged with an eat-in kitchen, as well as formal living and dining rooms.

Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

This side-split property was unveiled early in May, when sellers were outnumbered by shoppers hunting for homes around James Gardens. It was priced just below market value at $1,489,900, drawing interest from five buyers. The successful bid came in at $1,659,999.

“You never know until you list it what’s going to happen, but in this particular area, there was always a bidding war,” agent Ed Allan said.

“There’s more on the market now. But at the time, we were the only game in town.”

What they got

This nearly 60-year-old house offers living space staggered across four levels, including a partially finished basement.

On one side of the house, the main floor was arranged with an eat-in kitchen, as well as formal living and dining rooms. The other half of the house accommodates four bedrooms and two of the three bathrooms on the second floor. Directly below is a double garage, a recreation room with a fireplace, and access to the 56-foot-by-104-foot lot.

“People liked the layout, the size and walkout from the family room to the backyard,” Mr. Allan said.

The agent’s take

This nearly 60-year-old house offers living space staggered across four levels, including a partially finished basement.

“Buyers were all … second-time homebuyers who wanted to be in the neighbourhood, close to James Gardens, Humbertown [Shopping Centre] and the airport,” Mr. Allan added.
