The action

This three-storey house on a 35-by-125-foot lot got a purchase offer its first day on the market, but the sellers turned it down as only 20 prospective buyers had a chance to tour the house. The next day, they got two more.

“It came on the market the last week of February and our market was starting to move along in Lytton Park because there hadn’t been many listings over the $2-million mark,” agent Carol Lome said.

“There have been three – and they’ve all sold very quickly.”

What they got

With a third-floor addition to the original 1920s brick structure with a mansard roof, this house now has more than 3,825 square feet of living space, including six bedrooms, five bathrooms and a lower level recreation room.

Hardwood floors and crown mouldings add character to the dining room and two entertaining areas, one of which has a fireplace and the other sliding doors to a wide deck, private yard and garage.

The kitchen has been updated with stainless-steel appliances, granite-topped counters and an island.

The agent’s take

“Its a centre hall [residence] and a little raised from the street, so it has great curb appeal,” Ms. Lome said.

“It was three storeys, and each room was quite a good shape and size.”

The home’s allure was complemented by child-friendly amenities nearby. “Young families wanted to get into the neighbourhood,” Ms. Lome said.

“It’s close to John Ross [Robertson Jr. Public School] and Havergal [College], so it ticked all the boxes.”
