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

Listed At
$699,000
Sold For
$809,000

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

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