The Action: Within a 10-minute walk of Bayview Village Shopping Centre and Bayview subway station, this 1 1/2-storey house was toured by more than two dozen buyers, including the adult offspring of an online shopper from Vancouver whose $1.3-million offer beat out a few locals in a bidding war.

What They Got: New and renovated properties are quickly replacing older homes, such as this 1950s brick residence on a 50-by-120-foot lot one street south of Sheppard Avenue.

Inside are classic living and dining areas with moulded ceilings and hardwood floors beneath broadloom carpeting, as well as an eat-in kitchen with ceramic backsplashes and a walkout to a deck and garage.

Quieter areas range from a fireside recreation room and games room in the basement to two full bathrooms and four bedrooms, including one on the main floor.

The Agent's Take: "Granlea Road is a short walk to the subway and Bayview Village mall," agent Bill Thom says. "The lot is very much a buildable 50-foot lot and the house is in solid shape. It's not renovated, but you can live in it, and down the road, even if the house is in ruins, it's still worth the money."
