DAYS ON THE MARKET: Two

LISTING AGENT: Nutan Brown, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

The Action: It's been about three decades since house hunters were invited through this two-storey house on a 60-by-175-foot lot backing onto the Humber River. So a buyer wrote a deal the same day as the agents open house mid-October and was declared the new owner the following day.

"There are only about 15 houses along the street backing onto the river and they rarely come on the market," agent Nutan Brown said. "It's truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."

What They Got: This two-bedroom house with an attached garage was originally constructed in 1933, but later expanded with a family room to improve sightlines and access to the perennial gardens and flagstone patios.

Residents and guests can engage in different affairs simultaneously as there is a large galley kitchen, a dining area and living room with a fireplace, as well as a second-floor office and lower-level recreation area with a dry bar and one of three bathrooms.

The Agent's Take: "It's right on the banks of the Humber River and it's the last property on the street, so it's an extremely coveted location," Ms. Brown said.

"It's very private and surrounded by ravine, river and mature trees … and there's no traffic because it's at the end of the street."

Though many buyers wanted to personalize the space, many areas were move-in ready.

"At some point, someone added a main-floor family room across the back of the house, which is spectacular with walkouts and glass overlooking the backyard and ravine," Ms. Brown said. "It's glorious."
