The action

Built in 2017, 251 Chaplin Cres. in Toronto’s Forest Hill area boasts a wide range of luxury appointments, lots of space, and backs onto a ravine. After two months on the market, the home sold for just under the asking price of $4,150,000.

The Kay Gardner Beltline Park and Trail runs behind this newly-built infill home on a 35-by 120-foot lot, but it failed to attract many buyers to eight open-house events early this spring.

When relisted in May – with the original $4.3-million asking price trimmed by $150,000 – one buyer made a $4.099-million offer that was finalized a few days later.

“In the neighbourhood, there were no sales in the price range between $3.5-million up to $5-million,” agent Olena Feoktistova said.

“It was a strange spring market this year, it was not typical, mostly due to weather conditions … and we still have cold weather, so people didn’t show up as much as we expected.”

What they got

A glass-encased fireplace sits at the heart of the open living and dining area.

Bosley Real Estate Ltd.

This 3,112-square-foot residence was built with luxury in mind, with a limestone façade and inside a striking glass-encased fireplace and a floor-to-ceiling wine fridge in the living and dining areas.

Casual entertaining areas on the main and lower levels both have fireplaces. Double doors lead to a south-facing deck and patio.

Three bedrooms have Juliet balconies and the master bedroom has his-and-her closets and a six-piece ensuite, which includes a freestanding tub and a shower stall.

The agent’s take

The master bedroom's ensuite features a freestanding tub.

“In the past year, we had only two sales of new builds backing onto the Kay Gardner trail, so they are very rarely found,” Ms. Feoktistova said.

“[This one] was designed by Tomas Pearce, so it had a lot of attention to detail and a convenient layout, especially on the first floor.”

Room proportions were also generous. “There were up to 14-foot ceilings,” Ms. Feoktistova said.
