This row house is the end unit on a row of five houses built 23 years ago and set far back from a short, one-way street. The house scored two strong offers by the end of a week-long marketing campaign in August.
“Curzon is a nice street, and the complex is unusual in the fact that it’s freehold towns and an infill, so it’s tucked behind [neighbouring homes on] monster deep lots,” agent Paul Maranger said.
“Next door, there are more modern townhouses on a former school site … although they have condo fees and it’s a much larger complex.”
What they got
This 1,715-square-foot townhouse has a traditional three-storey layout with a street-level entrance and a private backyard. There’s an above grade garage accessible via a recreation room.
The second floor is set up with an eat-in kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is a central dining area and a rear living room with a gas fireplace and a balcony.
The top floor houses three bedrooms and two of the house’s three bathrooms.
An annual fee of $750 pays for maintenance, snow removal and lighting of the private laneway.
The agent’s take
“These towns don’t have basements, so the recreation room has huge windows and a full walkout to the double tiered patio,” co-listing agent Christian Vermast said.
“This unit has a superwide lot with lots of space at the side – it was 21 feet wide versus 16.5 feet wide for the unit next door – so it was great to store bikes, a barbecue, rubbish bins and garden equipment.”
