LISTING AGENTS Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty

The Action: Throughout 2016, few Long Branch homeowners were open to moving, so this semi-detached house on a 22-by-100-foot corner lot posed a rare opportunity to buy real estate close to Lake Ontario. When the presentation date arrived, there were eight bidders, with the winner offering $134,333 over asking.

What They Got: The low-rise community west of Colonel Samuel Smith Park and Humber College's Lakeshore campus is filled with older houses, such as this 1,236-square-foot version built in the 1940s.

The living room evokes a sense of traditional with hardwood floors and crown mouldings, while the kitchen and dining room were combined and modernized with granite counters, pot lights, sliding doors and a deck.

Updated bathrooms are set amongst three second-floor bedrooms and a lower-level recreation room with a separate entrance.

The Agent's Take: "It's such a nice location south of Lake Shore, close to the water," agent Irene Kaushansky says. "And the house really was as nice as it looked in the pictures."

That sentiment also applied to outdoor spaces. "The deck and big huge awning that the owner put on was almost like another room for the house, so it was [used] three seasons," Ms. Kaushansky says.

Meticulously crafted home ideally situated near shops, transit
