The Action: The lack of inventory was acutely felt in the weeks prior to March Break when this detached house near Mount Pleasant Cemetery was listed for $1.249-million. The sellers were bombarded with requests for 40 private showings, followed by several busy open houses over the span of a week, but were rewarded with four rival offers.
What They Got: For about 80 years, this two-storey residence has aged well with its brick façade and leaded windows illuminating a roughly 1,200-square-foot interior with three upper bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fireside living room and formal dining area with crown mouldings and hardwood floors.
The updated interlocking patio, garage and private driveway on the 30-by-132-foot lot can be reached via a side entrance to the lower-level recreation room or a cedar deck off a tiled eat-in kitchen.
The Agent's Take: "The location of this property is very desirable. Heather [Road] is a very quiet little street in South Leaside," agent Sheree Cerqua says. "One of the features of the home is that the principal rooms were quite spacious and so was the master bedroom."
