During a public open house, this two-storey house in Moore Park largely caught the attention of families, including three that made an offer.
WHAT THEY GOT
Located on a tree-lined street, this 1930s residence combines classic charm and modern conveniences, from original trims and hardware to new roofing, windows and open concept layouts.
On the main floor, there is a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a window seat flanked by built-in shelving and recently installed hardwood floors that flow into the dining area and rear family room with French doors to a deck and private south-facing backyard.
The kitchen was remodelled with maple cabinetry, pot lights and granite counters, plus five stainless steel appliances.
Upstairs, there is an updated four-piece bathroom and three bedrooms, including a master suite with a back deck.
A separate side entrance provides access to two lower level bedrooms, a powder room, sauna and shower area.
For parking, there is a legal front pad.
THE AGENT'S TAKE
"Moore Park is traditionally really expensive, so this was an opportunity to get in at a reasonable price," says agent Julie Kinnear. "It's detached, has a beautiful huge yard, a main floor family room and a lot of things that people like."
