Nutan Brown, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.
The Action: This new custom residence was initially priced above the budget set for clients of agent Nutan Brown. So they searched other turnkey properties in Bloor West Village and Swansea, but circled back with an offer when the price dropped below $2-million in June.
What They Got: The cube-like frame of this two-storey residence bodes well for large windows and access to outdoor space on every level, including a balcony off the largest of four upper bedrooms.
The fenced 25-by-129-foot lot is accessible via stairs from to a lower-level recreation room with a bedroom and in-floor heating, while a patio is located right off a fireside family room and kitchen with Caesarstone counters, high-gloss cabinetry and over-10-foot ceilings.
Glass walls, railings and doors add a sleek appearance to many of the four bathrooms, the floating staircase off the living and dining area and porch steps at the end of the front driveway.
The Agent's Take: "It's walking distance to schools and the subway, so [the buyers] are thrilled with the location," Ms. Brown says. "We liked the contemporary style of the architecture, lending itself to really great heights on all levels, including the basement, so it feels so airy."
The attention to smaller details also won over the new owners. "We looked at other homes that were done or new builds, and the calibre of workmanship in this was far superior to anything else we'd seen," Ms. Brown adds.
