A three-bedroom townhouse at the end of a row, across the street from McCormick Park.

The history

The sellers are a young couple who are moving into a larger home nearby. They lived here for 10 years. Many of the renovations predate them, but they added a new deck, upgraded the kitchen and made a few other improvements.

Here’s the living area, at the front of the house:

The fate

The buyers are young newlyweds. They love to cook, so they were attracted to the open floor plan, which combines the kitchen and dining area:

The sale

The property was initially listed at $1,149,900. There were three offers, but none of them were in the sellers’ desired range. They took the home off the market and re-listed it at $1,325,000, at which point there was a single offer for $25,000 under asking.

By the numbers

• $1,300,000 • $4,739.29 in taxes (2017) • 2,561 square feet (including the basement) • 13 days on MLS • 3 bathrooms • 3 bedrooms • 1 parking space
