The action

Vaulted ceilings soar over the family room.Hammond International Properties Ltd.

This former model home in the small community of King City, about 30 minutes north of Toronto, was posted for sale last April. The competition for buyer attention was made more difficult by nearby homes that were either smaller and more affordable, or larger and having ravine access. Months of marketing finally paid off with a bid near the end of October.

“Most of the homes in that area that were listed sold around the same amount of time on the market as our property did,” agent Verna Debono said.

What they got

The eat-in kitchen has a built-in bar.Hammond International Properties Ltd.

About five years ago, Zancor Homes constructed this 3,832-square-foot house on a 65-foot-by-152-foot lot to showcase the quality of construction in a low-rise community called King’s Ridge.

It has a four-bedroom plan with up to 10-foot ceilings, four bathrooms and a built-in, three-car garage. The basement is unfinished.

The main floor is divided into private areas for study, entertaining and dining. There is also a more casual eat-in kitchen with built-in bar and double patio doors and a family room with a floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace.

“This property was the model home for the builders, so it has an open-concept layout with soaring, vaulted ceilings in the family room,” Ms. Debono said.

“[In addition], this is the largest lot on the street [and] boasts an expansive, pool-size garden.”
