This four-bedroom house was priced at $3.85-million, and subsequently relisted several times. Given the property’s close proximity to a major street and the competition from another home listed across the street, different agents urged a $3-million price. But the seller chose to relist at $3.45-million late 2018 and then $3.249-million this April.
“When it was at $3.45-million, we had lots of showings, but no offers. That’s how price sensitive the market is,” said agent Andre Kutyan, who eventually negotiated a deal before Canada Day.
“We reduced it to $3.249-million, and we ended up getting two offers.”
What they got
This roughly two-year-old residence has a grandiose design made cozy with intricate details, particularly on the main floor, where there are warm wood ceiling treatments above the office and family room and a sleek gas fireplace with a marble surround in the living room.
Formal meals can be served in the dining room, or less formally in the eat-in kitchen. There’s a wet bar in the a lower-level recreation room, which is also outfitted with heated porcelain floors and has access to the backyard and double garage.
Upstairs, the master bedroom features a dressing room with a skylight and a seven-piece ensuite bathroom, the largest of six bathrooms in the house.
The agent’s take
“It’s one of the largest homes on a 40- foot lot. Usually I’ll find 3,200 to 3,500 square feet [of living space], but this is about 3,600 square feet, plus the basement, so it was really good footprint,” Mr. Kutyan said.
“It has a nice classic design on the outside with limestone that never goes out of style, and the inside has a very modern flair.”
