The action

Set on a 24-foot by 132-foot lot is this more than century-old house with three bedrooms, four bathrooms and entertaining areas on on all levels but the third floor.

Homeowners often look to neighbourhood sales as as a baseline for pricing their properties, so this semi-detached house was marked at $2.15-million this summer. Although there was little else available nearby, buyers did not come forward with offers, so the price was quickly dropped to $1.995-million in June.

“There was one home that did sell around the corner on Rathnelly [Avenue] for $2.15-million a couple months before this, so the vendor thought to try a similar number,” agent Lucille Chenoweth said.

“We had a lot of showings at that price, but no offers … but under $2-million, people came running.”

What they got

Set on a 24-foot by 132-foot lot is this more than century-old house with three bedrooms, four bathrooms and entertaining areas on on all levels but the third floor, including two with fireplaces and a lower level space with a rear exit.

The south-facing backyard, double garage and multitiered deck are also accessible from the dining room and renovated eat-in kitchen.

The agent’s take

“There are some houses with bigger square footage and there are some smaller ones too, so this is a mid-range size and a good family house,” Ms. Chenoweth said.

“It’s got a great school district and walkability to Yorkville [since] it’s just north of Dupont, off Avenue Road … but the biggest thing is it’s in a lovely little pocket on a one-way street that goes out to Avenue Road. So, nobody other than residents go on that street. It’s nice and quiet.”
