Three buyers made offers for this semi-detached, two-storey house, which is situated across from Elmbrook Park on a quiet, treed crescent in Etobicoke.
WHAT THEY GOT
Built about 30 years ago, this 1,378-square-foot house has three bedrooms upstairs, two bathrooms and open entertaining rooms, plus interior access to the garage.
The main floor kitchen was revamped three years ago with Corian counters, a pantry and stainless steel appliances.
The rear living and dining areas feature new hardwood floors and sliding doors to a partially-covered, two-tiered deck and private garden.
Above-grade windows brighten the lower level recreation and laundry rooms.
The furnace and air conditioning system were replaced in 2002, along with the roof and windows.
THE AGENT'S TAKE
"It faces a park, so there are no neighbours across the street, and it's in a really good school district," says agent Julie Kinnear. "And, you can walk to shopping, which is kind of rare in Etobicoke."
