In Upper Forest Hill, it’s rare to find a three-bedroom, detached house on one of the area’s large lots priced at less than $1-million. So when this house near Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue came up for sale, it attracted a flurry of interest.
Ten offers were received – mostly from young couples starting families, according to agent Elli Davis – pushing the price over the $1-million mark, $205,000 above asking.
“The original owner built this house and two others on the same block, and his family occupied it for over 50 years,” Ms. Davis says.
The house, which was sold by the estate of the owner, had not been renovated to any great degree, but was very well-maintained, the agent says. The large lot contains a detached double garage.The house has three bathrooms – including a three-piece in the finished basement and a main-floor powder room – as well as an updated kitchen and main-floor family room. There are hardwood floors throughout.
