Buyers’ agent: Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.
In a month-long search this summer, agent Ira Jelinek uncovered few properties that met the demanding requirements of his clients, previous residents of Yorkville who were anxious to return. This semi-detached house ticked all their boxes and they immediately made a full price offer of $3.69-million.
“When something comes out that’s good, it usually goes really fast because there’s a lack of supply throughout the city,” Mr. Jelinek said.
“This fit the bill after looking at about five properties.”
What they got
This three-bedroom house was built in the 1980s on a 25-foot-by-94-foot lot and comes with a built-in garage.
Many of the original components were replaced in a renovation about 10 years ago, giving the interior a more modern, European vibe.
The living and dining areas are open concept with pot lights, hardwood floors and a glass-lined stairwell to the upper and lower floors.
The main-floor family room has a full-height fireplace, while the lower-level entertaining space has double doors to a south-facing balcony and patio.
The agent’s take
“It was ready to go and had nicer finishes,” Mr. Jelinek said.
“This was also walking distance to shops in Yorkville and Hazelton Lanes, and it has parking, which not all Yorkville houses have.”
