LISTING AGENT Boris Kholodov, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division

The Action: Around Lionel Conacher Park off Yonge Street, this two-bedroom townhouse across the street is standard fare. But only a couple of properties of similar size were available this fall, so two offers emerged around the time it had its 60th private showing.

What They Got: Within a row of single-family homes, this brick residence contains two bedrooms at the top of a sky-lit staircase set between a fireside living room and dining area, as well as an updated kitchen with a peninsula and walkout to a deck and laneway parking behind the fenced, 15-by-138-foot lot.

The basement is completely open with laundry facilities and one of two full bathrooms.

The Agent's Take: "The area is quite popular for smaller homes, like this," says agent Boris Kholodov. "But it has a deep lot and potential for an addition."

The property's current condition allows new owners to renovate at their leisure. "Though it's in decent shape, people were looking to make improvements," Mr. Kholodov notes. "This property also offers parking space, which is very rare for this price range in the neighbourhood."
