DAYS ON THE MARKET Eight

LISTING AGENTS Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty

The Action: The Birch Cliff community is fairly small, so there was nothing for sale late March, but this two-storey house on the 31-by-100-foot lot near the Toronto Hunt Club and Crescentwood Park along the lake. Not long after a week of showings and an open house, the sellers deliberated over a handful of strong offers.

What They Got: This 1,263-square-foot house exudes tradition, with original hardwood floors and crown mouldings in a fireside living room and adjacent dining area with a walkout to a deck, yard and studio garage studio.

Operations run smoothly with updated mechanics and a modern eat-in kitchen with ceramic floors, quartz counters and a pantry.

Privacy is allocated to the second floor, where there are three bedrooms with hardwood floors, and two full bathrooms, including one off the lower-level recreation room.

The Agent's Take: "It's a sleeper pocket, just past the Beach, so the price point is a more affordable, but still has a Beach feel," agent Irene Kaushansky says.

"It's a really nice street that ends at the waterfront trail, which leads to the lake, so it's not a through street. You don't go there unless you live there, so it's very quiet."

Though this home is smaller than most, it still has some extras. "It was very cute and charming, and still had room for somebody to improve it down the road, but otherwise, it was very liveable with a brand new kitchen," Ms. Kaushansky adds.

"And the garage at the back was converted to part storage, part studio, so the studio was finished and insulated with hydro and heat, so it was almost like another room."
