Address: 727 Sammon Avenue Neighbourhood: East York Agent: Andrei Angelkovski, Re/Max Ultimate Realty Inc., Brokerage

The Property: This East York bungalow was redesigned with cathedral ceilings, a finished basement and a large back deck, giving it some of the roomy qualities of a two-storey home.

The History: Designers Ahren Cadieux and Will Hudson teamed up with interior designer Emily Millar to renovate the post-war bungalow. They underpinned the original six-foot basement, knocked out walls to create an open floor plan and added a bunch of new finishes, including maple flooring, skylights and a clean-looking stucco exterior. The flip took roughly six months.

The Fate: A young couple upsizing from a condo bought the bungalow. They were looking for a more standard-issue dwelling in Leslieville, but couldn’t resist this fashionable home at a lower price just a bit further east. The basement has a partial kitchen and a separate entrance, but they have no immediate plans to rent it out, according to the selling agent.

The Sale: The agent was also involved in the sale of another contemporary bungalow nearby. Listing Sammon for $50,000 more than the previous place helped attract a higher concentration of serious buyers who could afford the property. The home sold after seven days on the market, with four registered offers.

By the Numbers:

• $836,000 • 1,200 square feet, approximately • 120 per cent list price • 7 days on the market • 4 offers • 2+2 bedrooms • 2 bathrooms • 2-car legal parking pad • 1-car detached garage • 1 potential basement suite
