The property

A High Park home with an over-the-top master bathroom.

The history

The sellers bought this hundred-year-old home in 2014, intending to make it their forever spot. They renovated it from four bedrooms down to three, using the extra space to create a lavish five-piece master ensuite with heated floors. But when a promotion forced them to move out of town, they had to sell.

Here’s the foyer:

The fate

The buyers, a couple about to start a family, loved the fact that the home is move-in ready and just three minutes away from the subway.

The sale

The house had 55 agents come through for showings and 160 families visited during the open house. Of the 7 bids that come in on offer day, the sellers decided to accept the highest, which was unconditional and $377,000 over asking.
