The property

A 3,000-square-foot home that backs onto the Mud Creek ravine.

The history

The home was built over the course of six months last year. It was almost a complete teardown, though the builders did manage to salvage the exterior red brick. Instead of building a three-storey structure, the seller opted for two storeys with high ceilings.

The living area has a fireplace:

The fate

The buyers are a couple moving from outside the city to be closer to family. They were attracted to the area’s walkability and ample green space, including the Beltline Trail and the Don Valley Brickworks.

The sale

The home was initially listed at $3,100,000, but the seller lowered the ask to $3,000,000 before ultimately dropping it all the way to $2,499,000. After that final price reduction, there were three offers. The home was on the market for three months.
