A five-bedroom home near the Toronto Hunt Club.
The sellers own multiple properties. Recently, another home in an upscale part of North York caught their eye, so they decided to move.

There’s also a family room at the back of the house:
Next to the family room is the dining area:
And here’s the kitchen:
There are four bedrooms on the second floor. This one is set up as an office:
Here’s another bedroom:
Those three bedrooms share this hallway bathroom:

The buyers are approaching retirement and were attracted to the quiet, tree-lined street, one of only a few cul-de-sacs in the area. The house is move-in ready, with the most recent round of renovations completed in 2010.
The sellers rejected a bully bid four days before the offer date—but then, two days later, there was another, for more than $300,000 over asking. They accepted.
