LISTING AGENT Paul Johnston, Right at Home Realty Inc.

The Action: In the residential pocket northwest of Trinity Bellwoods Park, this three-storey townhouse was taken off the market with a deal made after just over a week of market exposure.

What They Got: Less than two years ago designers from Cecconi Simone helped fashion 45 modern brick townhouses, including this 2,104-square-foot model. The built-in garage, accessed off the lower-level recreation area, exits to an underground driveway covered by monthly fees of $129.

There is an open dining room and central kitchen with Liebherr and AEG appliances, an island, Caesarstone counters and hardwood floors that continue into the rear living area with a walkout to the 15-by-60-foot lot.

A glass-walled floating staircase leads to laundry facilities and two second-floor bedrooms, plus a third-floor master suite with a custom walk-in closet and the largest of three bathrooms with a freestanding tub and glass shower.

The Agent's Take: "This is at most a 10-minute walk, about four blocks east of the park," says agent Paul Johnston. "And it's not on the south of the park, it's on the north side of the park, which a growing number of people are preferring because it's quieter."

This townhouse, like the complex it's in, is also distinct for the area.

"The majority of the townhouses in that development are on a 13.5-foot lot, so this particular one is on a 15-foot lot. While a foot and a half doesn't sound like much, it translates into a much broader floor plan and a lot more sense of space," Mr. Johnston says.

"[Plus] it's unabashedly contemporary with lots of space and tremendous amount of light, and the owners were fastidious with their level of finish and the way in which they presented the home. It's an impeccable interior."
