The history

Listing agent Sharon Soltanian also happens to be the seller. She bought the property in 2010 and began a ground-up renovation four years later. Among other things, she decked out the house with crystal chandeliers, white oak hardwood flooring, and Italian marble. Now, she’s moving to another part of the city.

The fate

The buyer loved the open floor plan and the refined surface mateirals. When he moves in, he doesn’t plan to make any changes.

The sale

The house sold in three days, for $132,000 over asking. Soltanian believes the sale price is the most that has ever been paid for a 45-foot lot in this neighbourhood.

By the numbers

• $3,720,000 • $12,201.30 in taxes (2016) • 6000 square feet • 6 bathrooms • 4 bedrooms • 3 days on MLS • 1 elevator
