The action: Around the corner from Beverly Glen school and park, this former model home on a 62-by-95-foot corner lot found its next owner near the end of a week of private showings and public open houses hosted late March.
“Other properties had been on the market for some time and are still not sold,” agent Honey Moore said. “Properly priced, one week should be the norm if the property shows well.”
What they got: Since 1972, the same family lived in this 2,220-square-foot house with four bedrooms and a built-in double garage.
There are formal living and dining rooms off the foyer, as well as casual recreation areas with fireplaces on the main and lower levels. The one at ground level also has access to a side yard, while the one below is outfitted with a wet bar, a guest bedroom and one of four bathrooms.
The agent’s take: “The home was built in the early 1970s by McClintock Homes, a well-known Scarborough builder at the time,” Ms. Moore said.
“It is an unusual design with a sunken living room to the left as you enter [as] it was used as a model home for the subdivision.”
