The 3,530-square-foot layout has a formal dining room and two entertaining areas with fireplaces.

The action: At the tail end of winter, there were two houses for sale near Rosedale Park. The one directly across from it – this 2½-storey residence on a 47-by-150-foot lot – had two serious suitors.

“The offers were separate, so there was not a bidding war,” agent Paul Maranger said. “When the first party decided against the property, a second party regretted not buying it [beforehand] and swept in.”

What they got: This over-century-old house belies its age with updated mechanics and contemporary luxuries, such as heated porcelain-tile floors in the kitchen and six-piece bathroom located in the largest of four bedrooms.

But the 3,530-square-foot layout is still fairly traditional with a formal dining room and two entertaining areas with fireplaces, as well as enclosed studies with crown mouldings on two levels.

A side door provides easy access to a private driveway to the garage and 1,495-square-foot basement with a recreation area and guest room.

’The home was well suited for young families with a main-floor family room, updated kitchen and breakfast room,’ listing agent Paul Maranger says.

The agent’s take: “There are so few properties in Toronto that back or front onto our city parks,” Mr. Maranger said.

“This house directly faced Rosedale Park, which has so many activities for children and the backyard was massive, it felt like a park itself.”

This home also artfully pairs its heritage features with new conveniences. “The home was well suited for young families with a main-floor family room, updated kitchen and breakfast room,” Mr. Maranger said.

“This is the style of living sought out by today’s busy families and is more frequently found in brand-new houses.”
