The property

An updated Victorian home in a highly sought-after location.

The history

The sellers bought the 110-year-old home 13 years ago and went about a series of renovations. The added a new kitchen, lowered and waterproofed the basement and added a patio with built-in bench seating.

Here’s the living room:

The fate

The buyers, who are moving from their house in New Toronto, wanted to be on Queen West. They’ll take possession in September.

The sale

The home was first listed at $1.249 million, to no avail. The sellers pulled the listing and tried again at $1.199, which brought in a flurry of lowball offers. The eventual buyers were responsible for one of those offers. The agent gave them the weekend to improve, and they came back with their winning bid.

By the numbers

• $1,160,000
• $4,423.67 in taxes (2016)
• 2,058 square feet
• 12 days on MLS
