The most popular Sales of the Week of 2015
Every week, we bring you a short profile of a recently sold house or condo somewhere in Toronto. This year, the featured properties ran the gamut from mansions to fixer-uppers—but, surprisingly, the sale that created the biggest stir was a relatively modest bungalow with a cleverly designed interior. Here, as we get ready for another year of real estate features, are the ten sales that attracted the most readers in 2015, in descending order of popularity.
1) 727 Sammon Avenue, East York
The most popular Sale of the Week of 2015 was this seemingly humble East York bungalow, which crams a whopping four bedrooms into a completely renovated interior.
2) 237 St. Clements Avenue, Lytton Park
This modern home is distinguished by an unusual floor plan, including a glass-enclosed office space suspended above the foyer.
3) 85 Lake Promenade, Long Branch
Beachfront property in Toronto is incredibly rare. This east-end house claims a precious 30 feet of city shoreline.
4) 132 Yarmouth Road, Wallace-Emerson
One of the most distinctive homes in Wallace-Emerson, this place sold for significantly more than its asking price.
5) 8 Walmsley Boulevard, Yonge-St. Clair
This 1922 home was beautifully preserved by its owners, who put it on the market earlier this year.
6) 68 Jackman Avenue, North Riverdale
A high-quality restoration helped this century-old home sell for asking.
7) 638 Millwood Road, Mount Pleasant
This home incorporates a piece of Toronto retail history: a stairway scavenged from Creeds, the Bloor Street department store that closed in the 1990s.
8) 219 Soudan Avenue, Davisville
Although it had a difficult time finding a buyer because of its unusual interior, this house’s giant windows and open layout charmed readers.
9) 86 Waniska Avenue, Stonegate
Modern design and multi-hued wood flooring set this house apart from other properties we featured this year.
10) 7 Hillcroft Drive, Islington
Many owners would have repainted this house in neutral colours before putting it on the market. Instead, the sellers listed it in all its crazy, pastel glory.
