Agents Mary Jo Vradis and Meray Mansour pegged the value of this four-bedroom house with an attached double garage on a 43-foot-by-145-foot corner lot at $1.85-million and, within a week, found a buyer who agreed.
“We didn’t over list it or under list it,” Ms. Vradis said. “We listed it where we felt the market value was and we were bang on.”
What they got
In 2018, a designer extensively renovated this 2,686-square-foot house, right down to the 1,233-square-foot basement, which was outfitted with pot lights, custom millwork and herringbone, porcelain tile flooring.
The main and second floors have 10-foot ceilings and full-height corner windows. There are three fireplaces, including a sculptural, double-sided fixture by the open kitchen and dining area. A window wall opens out a backyard cedar cabana and heated, in-ground, saltwater pool.
Upstairs, a walk-through office leads into a bedroom with a walk-in closet, Juliet balcony and one of five bathrooms.
The agent’s take
“It was a custom home when they bought it, and a designer put their own flair on it,” Ms. Vradis said.
“It’s such a stunning home. It has light everywhere – huge windows and huge skylights – and vaulted ceilings.”
“It’s very close to the lake and highway,” Ms. Vradis said. “Even though it’s in Scarborough, it’s faster to take the GO train than to drive [downtown], so it’s much more accessible than people think.”
