LISTING AGENTS: Kim Nichols and Khalen Meredith, Engel & Völkers Toronto Uptown
THE ACTION: Bungalows rarely come to market in the west end of Aurora, Ont., which is about a 30-minute drive north of Toronto, so this custom residence on a half-acre lot drummed up a full price offer after welcoming just three visitors in November.
"It's pretty unusual for that price point to sell that quickly," agent Kim Nichols said.
"Right now, they could be on [the market] for a couple months before something happens," co-listing agent Khalen Meredith said.
What they got: Near the end of a short cul-de-sac is this decade-old house with a triple garage, three bedrooms, six bathrooms and walkouts on both levels to the manicured grounds and in-ground pool.
A dramatic two-storey foyer is floored with reclaimed elm and there are crown mouldings in the office and dining room. Vaulted ceilings add a sense of volume to the eat-in kitchen and great room, where there is also a full-height stone fireplace.
The basement has two guest rooms, another office and a recreation area with a fireplace and built-in bar.
The agent's take: Locals refer to the area as "the Rosedale of Aurora," Ms. Nichols said, "because the homes in that area are quite grand.
"And it's on a cul-de-sac, so there's not a lot of traffic.
"It had beautiful landscaping," Ms. Meredith said. "And for a bungalow, it has a centre hall plan, which we often [only] see with a two-storey home."
