Sale of the Week: The $2.3-million Willowdale home that proves the second time is sometimes the charm
Listed At
Sold For

Neighbourhood: Willowdale

The Property: A newly built four-bedroom home, outfitted with lots of luxurious imported materials.

The History: The sellers bought the property in 2013 and quickly went about rebuilding from the ground up. They began construction on the current structure in January of 2014, and completed it in March of this year. The sellers went all-out with Italian porcelain and wood. They even brought contractors over from Europe to install it all. Now, they’re unloading the house so they can move to a more central location.

The Fate: The buyer will be moving in with his family. He sees the property as an investment. Although the square footage of this house is a little on the low side relative to its sale price, the expensive materials made up the difference.

The Sale: The sellers had the house listed for three months with another agent, but grew frustrated when the property didn’t sell. Shortly after they hired a new agent, but before they could list the property again, the eventual buyer got in touch. They negotiated a price $88,000 under asking.

By The Numbers:

  • $2,310,000
  • 4300 square feet
  • $4231.03 in taxes (2016)
  • 722-bottle wine cellar
  • 5 bathrooms
  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2 selling agents

The house has heated floors on all three levels:
