This semi-detached house first came on the market in July, but over two weeks it only managed to elicit a few hesitant verbal offers. It was re-listed in September and the offer price was reduced twice before a deal was concluded just before Halloween.

“The summer of 2020 was red-hot everywhere, but this year, when people felt good about being vaccinated, people started traveling so the market calmed down,” said Agent Robert Nelson.

“It is a stunning home built in the early 60s that is very urban with two [bedrooms] plus one, which was a bit of a challenge for some people who, after seeing it, decided they needed a third bedroom.

“But in the end, the property was sold to a few investors.”

What they got

This house has over 1,440 square feet of living space with an open den between two bedrooms on the second floor. A guest bedroom and another full bathroom are on the lower level, which also has access to the garage.

The living room on the ground floor has a fireplace. The dining kitchen has stainless steel appliances and double doors to a deck and patio on the 20 x 128 foot lot.

“The annex is extremely diverse in its housing stock,” said Mr. Nelson. “You can have multi-unit homes, low-rise apartment buildings, condominiums and single-family homes.”

“One of the biggest advantages this house had was a garage, and you could easily park three cars in the driveway. And for the annex, at that price point, it’s unheard of. “

The ability to walk to amenities was also a big plus. “There are access to two subway lines within a minute’s walk,” said Mr. Nelson.
