LISTING AGENT Suzanne Lewis, Keller Williams Advantage Realty

The Action: An address in prime Riverdale was all it took to lure 135 house hunters to this semi-detached house this May, but artwork displayed for a pop-up gallery by Jane Roos – who fundraises for Canadian athletes – brought patrons of the arts for some cross promotion. Within a week, there was a multiple-offer scenario capped with an offer $321,886 over the $1.195-million list price.

What They Got: At the centre of a 21-by-120-foot lot is this 2.5-storey structure containing 1,877 square feet of living space above grade, plus a 939-square-foot basement with a guest room and recreation area.

Over the past three seasons, the interiors became more modern with an open dining area between a fireside living room and rear kitchen with a breakfast bar and walkout to the deck and double garage.

A glass-lined staircase leads the way up to four bedrooms, the largest on the second floor with his and her closets and one of four bathrooms.

The Agent's Take: "The location is one street south of the Danforth, so it's literally a three-minute walk to the subway and people loved that, and it's a great street and in a good school district," agent Suzanne Lewis says.

"This was unique because it has a two-car garage and the fact it was fully done, modern and looked really cool, so there was nothing to do," Ms. Lewis adds. "It was light, bright and open concept with glass railings and partitions."
