The history

The house’s original builder ran into creditor trouble when construction was about 90 per cent complete. Another builder stepped in and finished the job, adding lacquered millwork throughout and bringing in high-end appliances.

The fate

The buyers, a family, instantly loved the house’s workmanship and open space, as well as its proximity to Yonge Street and Eglinton Station.

The sale

The property attracted plenty of attention, with 12 showings and an open house attended by more than 20 agents—a number the listing agent says is a rarity at this price point. The buyers made a preemptive offer $219,000 over asking.

By the numbers

• $3,100,000
• $6,267.44 in taxes (2016)
• About 2,500 square feet
• 108 per cent of list price
• 5 bathrooms
