“The original owners, who bought from the builder over 25 years ago, have enjoyed this home, raising their three boys and hosting huge fund- raisers over Halloween with displays all around the house as it is a corner lot. This has brought the neighbourhood together,” says listing agent Daniel Bloch. “Their boys have grown up and it is time for them to move to their next home.”

There were multiple offers to purchase, says co-listing agent Liora Tal. “We had a fair amount of interest. Many people really liked the upgrades and automation,” including remote blinds on the main floor and a remote awning in the backyard.

The home, built in 1997, offers approximately 3,400 square feet of bright living space. It was originally a five-bedroom floor plan but was converted into four bed-
rooms. Each bedroom has a large closet and an ensuite bathroom, something that potential buyers appreciated. The primary suite has his-and-her closets and a six-piece ensuite bathroom with a soaker tub.

A custom main-floor re- model includes a newer kitchen, floors, windows and doors and a staircase with a skylight above. The steel-and-glass staircase and high doors are features of the foyer, which Tal describes as “striking.”

Bloch says the eat-in chef’s kitchen has a six-burner gas range, an ultra-quiet vent hood and dishwasher, and a hidden pantry. The family room has a gas fireplace and a view of the backyard, which has seasonal blooms and mature trees. About $100,000 was spent on landscaping.

A second kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a three-piece bathroom and a recreation room with a gas fireplace and built-in speakers are lower-level high-
lights. “It’s the perfect space for kids’ parties and movie nights around the fireplace,” Bloch says.

The property was also of interest to “families wanting to get into this fantastic neighbourhood,” he says. “It has many schools and a park, along with excellent proximity to other amenities.” Shopping, dining and highways 7 and 407 are near-
by.

It’s in Beverley Glen, a neighbourhood that offers public, French immersion and Catholic schools and is also close to Westmount Collegiate, says Tal. “It’s an excellent family area with well-built homes.”
