The front entrance is lovely:

The fate

The buyers are from the west end and want to be closer to their downtown workplaces.

The sale

The home was first listed exclusively and the sellers held more than a dozen showings before it hit Toronto’s Multiple Listing Service, the online database for property information in the GTA. It garnered two competitive offers on the first day on MLS and sold right away for asking.

By the numbers

• $4,895,000 • $16,019 in taxes (approximately) • 4,285 square feet (including basement) • 1 day on MLS • 4 bathrooms • 4 bedrooms • 2 parking spaces
