Sale of the Week: the $1.2-million Davisville semi that proves unusual design can make for a challenging sale
The property: This contemporary Davisville semi has a spacious floor plan with extra-tall ceilings and massive windows at the front and back of the home.
The history: The sellers, a young couple, upgraded to 219 Soudan from a nearby condo seven years ago. Aside from professionally landscaping the backyard and adding a hot tub, they didn’t do any major renovations inside the home. Before they moved in, however, previous owners had built a window-lined rear addition spanning all three storeys.
The fate: The buyers are a young couple who were drawn in by the home’s unusual interior design. According to the selling agent, younger buyers are increasingly drawn to the neighbourhood, partly because the proliferation of condos along Eglinton is gradually making the area more lively.
The sale: Some families with children were put off by the home’s many precipitous ledges. The sellers originally put the property on the market for $1,249,900, but changed their tune after finding a new pad for a relatively low price. They re-listed for $1,099,000 and got three offers.
