The history

The sellers have lived here since the early 1990s. Now they’re empty nesters, and they’re looking to downsize into a condo nearby.

The fate

It was all about location for the buyers: the home is a short walk from Promenade Shopping Centre and a quick drive from the Thornhill Club. The agent says the buyers also appreciated the fact that the house was somewhat affordable, considering its size.

The sale

While there were other interested parties, the buyer came in with the sole offer. Other homes on the street have sold for more than $4 million. This property’s older interior may have held its sale price down.

By the numbers

• $3,550,000 • $17,600 in taxes (approximately) • 5,800 square feet • 60 days on MLS • 8 bathrooms • 8 bedrooms
