Address: 306 Scarborough Road

Neighbourhood: The Beach

Agent: Laura Inward, Keller Williams Advantage Realty, Brokerage

The property: This cozy semi-detached Beach home is on a family-friendly street, across from the Adam Beck School. What it lacks in square footage (it’s the size of a medium-big condo) it makes up for in high ceilings, ample storage and curb appeal.

The history: The sellers bought the property in 2013. Two years later, they decided they wanted a larger place for their growing family. They’re currently building a new house in Birchcliff, a little to the east.

The fate: The buyers are a recently engaged couple looking to settle down. They liked the neighbourhood and warm feel of the home.

The sale: After five days on the market and four open houses, the home had generated a five-way bidding war. The sellers accepted the highest offer, which was unconditional and $110,000 over asking.

By the numbers:

  • $809,000
  • $3,474.13 in property taxes (2015)
  • 14.67-by-120.08 foot lot
  • 6 days on the market
  • 3 + 1 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • 2 parking spaces
  • 1 sun porch

There’s a little space to hang out down here, but a two-seater couch is probably the limit.
