The sellers bought the house in 2012 and finished renovating it in 2016. Their changes included opening up the main floor, installing a new kitchen and bathrooms and digging out the basement. They also absorbed one of the original four bedrooms into a new, larger master suite. Now they’re moving to Ottawa for work, so the house has to go.
