The property

A detached home in the West End that become a one-day wonder.

There’s a sun room for shoes and jackets before the front door opens into the living room:

Here’s the dining room:

And the kitchen:

This is one of four bedrooms on the second floor:

And another:

And here’s the master, which is about the same size as the others (including one that’s not pictured):

There’s a washer and dryer in the basement:

And a nice spot for silently staring into emptiness:

There’s a detached garage out back. The yard could use a little love:

The history

The sellers bought the home 25 years ago and made periodic updates: a new kitchen, veranda, windows and, most recently, garage. They’re listing now to downsize, since it’s just the two of them.

The fate

Location was a major priority for the buyer, a couple. The home’s proximity to the subway, and its move-in-ready condition, sealed the deal.

The sale

The house had about 10 showings, but the eventual buyers were so keen that they put in a bully offer right away. At $304,000 over asking, it convinced the sellers, and the house was sold in one day.

By the numbers

• $1,333,000
• $5,070.37 in taxes (2016)
• 1,591 square feet
• 4 bedrooms
• 2 bathrooms
• 1 day on MLS
