This unusual “bungaloft” – a bungalow townhouse with a loft – located less than a five-minute drive from the Bayview Golf and Country Club, only had six visitors, but three of those made offers. The winning bid, $180,000 under asking, was accepted mid-May.
“This is one of the only complexes like this in Southern Ontario,” agent Jerry Hammond said. “Maybe one [unit is listed] every five years, if that. They don’t turn over very quickly.”
WHAT THEY GOT
In a condominium community, called Cotswold of Bayview, this roughly 15-year-old townhouse offers about 3,200 square feet of living space, a private backyard and attached double garage.
The interior was designed with formal living and dining areas and more open concept eat-in kitchen and rear family room. The latter was appointed a fireplace, patio doors and cathedral ceilings that open to a loft area above, media space and bedroom.
Two bedrooms with bathrooms and walk-in closets complete the main floor. A guest room is situated in the basement, along with media and recreation spaces.
Monthly maintenance fees are $842, which includes water.
THE AGENT’S TAKE
“It’s in a private little enclave – there are only 17 homes – and part of it backs onto a conservation area, so it’s really a gem,” Mr. Hammond said.
“They are so well designed with high ceilings, and they’re spacious and they’re wide, so rooms are very gracious in size.”
