The property

A 2,000-square-foot home near Trinity Bellwoods. This three-bedroom, two-bathroom semi has a painted brick façade and a cozy interior.

The history

Originally built in 1907, this house underwent minor renovations throughout the 20th century. In 2004, previous owners knocked down the walls on the main floor to open up the living space, and built a 90-square-foot extension that overlooks the backyard. In 2013, they renovated the kitchen and second-floor bathroom. A year later, a couple with two kids bought the place for $825,000. They added a white picket fence in the front yard.

The tour

There are narrow-plank hardwood floors throughout the house:

The sale

To boost the home’s curb appeal, the sellers painted the front door yellow and re-shingled the gable roof with cedar. In early 2019, the sellers listed the home for just under $1.1 million. After a week on the market—and more than 60 showings—they received five competitive offers. A young couple submitted a bid for $350,900 over asking. That sealed the deal.
