The action

This four-bedroom bungalow sprawls over nearly a half acre of land, an unusually large lot for Oshawa, 60 kilometres east of downtown Toronto. Four offers emerged, with the standout being a bid $225,000 over the asking price.

“This was negotiated before the [market] shift really started, so it was right at the height,” said agent Corinne Mash.

“One house next door was listed right after [the owners] heard the price ours sold for.”

What they got

The basement is finished with a fifth bedroom, a den and a recreation area with a fireplace and built-in bar.

The house has three bathrooms. Waste water is dealt with on site by septic system.

“There have been some nice updates on it, and it’s got a big family room with a bay window that overlooks the big backyard.”
