The Action: This side-split house directly north of the Finch subway station parking lot charmed more than two dozen visitors this October, especially TTC commuters.
"It was a tough market," agent Bill Thom said. "But the buyer liked it and paid pretty close to the asking price considering the fact it was [on the market for] two months and there were no price adjustments."
What They Got: This side-split structure was designed with a double garage and living space spread across on four levels, including a self-contained basement with a guest room, kitchen and recreation area with a fireplace.
On the main floor, there is a living room with a fireplace, an adjacent dining area and separate kitchen with an exit to a south-facing deck.
The central staircase leads up to three bedrooms, including a master with a private bathroom, his and her closets. Directly below on the lower level is a fourth bedroom.
The Agent's Take: "It's a typical house in the area built about 50 some years ago and not much has been done to it," Mr. Thom said.
"The biggest selling feature is you can literally walk to the subway from here through the backyard and public pathway, so it's maybe 10 minutes away."
