The history

The sellers bought the home from the builders 12 years ago. While they were renovating the interior this year they decided not to move back in. They’re moving to another home within walking distance of this one.

Here’s the living room:

The fate

The buyer is an executive who had been hoping to live in Riverdale or Leslieville, but found that many of the homes in those neighbourhoods were either too expensive or missing important extras like parking. This townhome, located a little farther east, hit all the marks.

The sale

The home was originally listed at $1,199,000. There was an offer after eight days, but it was too low for the sellers, so they re-listed the property at $1,315,000 and accepted another offer for $35,000 under asking.
