The Action: It's not unheard of for upscale properties to command a premium in Summerhill, but few back onto Ramsden Park and are priced under $2-million, such as this semi-detached house. About two dozen visitors toured the home and an over-asking bid was accepted on the offer date in mid-May.
"The buyer and seller negotiated and agreed on a price over asking, even though there was only one offer on the table," agent Boris Kholodov said. "This would be the least expensive house on the street. If it had parking, it would have been a lot more expensive."
What They Got: Set on a 19-by-97-foot lot, this roughly century-old residence offers 1,927 square feet of living space spread across three floors, plus a finished 675-square-foot basement and a south-facing backyard.
The interior is largely original with a fireplace in the living room, an adjacent dining area and separate eat-in kitchen with an exit to a deck.
The upper floors are divided into four sleeping quarters, including two with rooftop terraces. The one on the third floor also features a walk-in closet and five-piece bathroom. It is among the largest of four bathrooms.
The Agent's Take: "It's one of the smallest houses on the street," Mr. Kholodov said. "What's most important here is the location and potential of the property."
