Sale of the Week: the $1.2-million home that shows the changing face of Stonegate

Address: 86 Waniska Avenue
Neighbourhood: Stonegate
Agent: Ana Santos, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage

The Property: This contemporary Stonegate family home has wood finishes and hardwood flooring across all its levels, including the finished basement. Many large windows add to its appeal.

The History: One of the neighbourhood’s numerous old bungalows was torn down to make way for this new house, which retains some of the original foundation. The builders lived at the address for about a year before deciding to cash in on their modern design.

The Fate: Only a handful of contemporary builds exist in Stonegate—but more are on the way, according to the agent. The ‘hood is located near the QEW, GO transit and streetcars, making it fertile ground for builders looking to appeal to buyers priced out of downtown.

The Sale: The sale set an area price record. The sellers received a single conditional offer after five days on the market, which they accepted.
