Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

This 2½-storey house with a detached double garage a 10-minute walk from Dundas West and Bloor GO stations was the property of choice for two bidders in late March, with the winning offer adding $121,000 above the asking price to secure a deal.

“We priced it at what we thought was fair market value, but it showed really well, it’s well built and well maintained, so both buyers appreciated the quality of it and the space,” agent Nutan Brown said.

What they got

The kitchen has granite countertops, breakfast bar seating and stainless steel appliances.

“It’s a sought-after neighbourhood and a sought-after street,” Ms. Brown said.

“It’s close to transit – like the subway and UP Express – and very close to Roncesvalles and High Park.”

“The shell is 100 years old, but the interior was much more modern,” Ms. Brown said.

“The main floor was opened up over the years, so it was originally three little rooms, but now it’s a nice big, open space with high ceilings, so it felt really fresh.”
