CO-OP AGENTS Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown, Keller Williams Advantage Realty

The Action: Agents Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown scoured neighbourhoods surrounding the University of Toronto to find potential properties in move-in-condition for their clients. Losing a few bidding wars on other homes prompted them to make a strong offer on this two-storey townhouse in the Trinity-Bellwoods community.

What They Got: Three years ago, this brick townhouse was revamped inside and out with updated wiring and heating systems to windows and double French patio doors off a kitchen dressed with Caesarstone counters, marble tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove.

Adding a sense of grandeur, there are ten-foot ceilings and hardwood floors in the main floor living room, dining room and three bedrooms upstairs.

A second four-piece bathroom, kitchen and laundry facilities are located in a basement apartment, which also has its own living area and separate entrance.

Parking is located off a lane way at the back of the 15-by-90-foot lot.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s right by the Queen and Ossington strip, which has recently become very vibrant and very exciting with lots of great restaurants,” Ms. Kaushansky said. “It was a row home, but it was very spacious – built around the turn-of-the-century – so the ceilings were very high, and it also had potential income from the basement, which wasn’t a requirement [for the buyers] but a big bonus.”
