The house that sold at 438 Woodfield Road

Address: 438 Woodfield Road
Neighbourhood: Greenwood-Coxwell
Agent: Tim Dutaud, Royal LePage Signature Realty, Brokerage

The property: This east-end home is as open-concept as it gets: there are barely any interior walls except those surrounding the bathrooms. The hacienda-style exterior distinguishes it from its neighbours.

The history: The seller bought the place in 2009 after living in a downtown loft for 12 years. He transformed the home, built in 1933, from a three-bedroom family residence into a loft-like retreat for him and his partner, complete with exposed brick walls and granite countertops. When the pair married and started their family, they decided to trade in for a bigger abode.

The fate: New new owners plan to build up, adding another storey to the home—a common fate for bungalows in this part of town.

The sale: The house received only one offer, for $5,000 over asking. The seller didn’t have his heart set on a bidding war, so he accepted immediately.

By the numbers:

• $600,000
• $2,438.10 in property taxes (2015)
• 1,100 square feet, approximately
• 101 per cent of list price
• 12 days on the market
