LISTING AGENT Elli Davis, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: This semi-detached home's two-bedroom plan catered to a smaller pool of buyers, so there were just over two dozen showings this summer. The price was reduced after a month, which brought out a serious buyer and a $2.42-million deal close to the original list price.

What They Got: In one half of the more than century-old, heritage structure is this three-storey portion on a 35-by-126-foot lot with a private driveway and detached double garage.

The interiors were recently renovated, so it has a modern eat-in kitchen with a pantry and top-of-the-line appliances, a dining room with a built-in bar and a living room with a gas fireplace, skylights and patio doors to a walled-in backyard with a built-in barbecue and fountain.

Areas for studies include an office in the basement and a fireside library on the second floor, which also accommodates one bedroom and stairs to a third-floor master retreat with a deck and largest of four bathrooms.

The Agent's Take: "It was a little different because it was a large home made into two smaller homes in the ninties," agent Elli Davis said. "It's a gorgeous semi-detached home with a garage … and was beautifully decorated and renovated with top designer tastes and finishings."

Buyers also fancied the proximity to extensive parkland, the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club and to upscale bistros and boutiques. "You can walk to Yonge Street, so that had a lot of appeal," Ms. Davis added.
