Sale of the Week: The $810,000 house that proves Beach living isn’t cheap

Listed At
Sold For

Address: 306 Scarborough Road

Neighbourhood: The Beach

Agent: Laura Inward, Keller Williams Advantage Realty, Brokerage

The property: This cozy semi-detached Beach home is on a family-friendly street, across from the Adam Beck School. What it lacks in square footage (it’s the size of a medium-big condo) it makes up for in high ceilings, ample storage and curb appeal.

The history: The sellers bought the property in 2013. Two years later, they decided they wanted a larger place for their growing family. They’re currently building a new house in Birchcliff, a little to the east.

The fate: A young couple purchased the home.

The sale: After five days on the market and four open houses, the home had generated a five-way bidding war. The sellers accepted the highest offer, which was unconditional and $110,000 over asking.

By the numbers:

  • $809,000
  • $3,474.13 in property taxes (2015)
  • 14.67-by-120.08 foot lot
  • 6 days on the market
  • 3 + 1 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • 2 parking spaces
  • 1 sun porch

Whitewashed floors make the downstairs interior seem extra-bright.

The dining area is continuous with the living room.

The kitchen has butcher block countertops.

There are three bedrooms on the second floor.

Here’s bedroom number one.

And bedroom number two.

All three bedrooms share this bathroom.

And here’s the master bedroom. The double doors lead to a closet.

The basement is finished.

There’s a little space to hang out down here, but a two-seater couch is probably the limit.

The backyard.
