Oddly, the basement bathroom is fancier than the one on the second floor—at least, if your sole criterion for fanciness is the presence of a soaker tub:

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 • 3 bedrooms • 2 bathrooms

This post originally said that the buyers of 16 Euclid were upsizing from a condo. In fact, they’re moving from a single-family house.
