Ed Allan, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

The Action: For a few days this spring, every 15 minutes seemed to bring a new set of buyers through this detached, backsplit residence, agent Ed Allan says. The home is set on a desirable ravine lot measuring 41-by-131-feet and backs onto West Deane Park. There were two offers.

What They Got: West Deane, a popular public park bordering Mimico Creek sits just below the south-facing backyard and in-ground pool of this 1960s residence. There's also a double garage and four levels of living space inside, including a family room in the basement.

Through the front door is a landing with access to a living room and stairs up to three bedrooms – the largest of which has a walk-in closet and one of three updated bathrooms – as well as a flight of steps down to a remodelled kitchen, fireside den and dining area with sliding garden doors.

The Agent's Take: "A lot of the homes in the area sell for substantially less than that because they didn't have that ravine lot … and the ravine actually backs onto a park with planting the city had done," says agent Ed Allan, who hasn't seen a similar ravine lot turnover in two decades.

"[And] the pool overlooks the ravine, so it was almost like having a hot tub in the master bedroom overlooking everything."

Plus, changes the seller made over time were duly noted. "The owner was in retail, so he did all the work himself… and changed everything," Mr. Allan adds. "Even the garage had a new concrete floor, everything was tip top."
