Art-Filled Charmer on Windermere
This warm and cozy Walkerville home is one of our favourite recent Border City Living “sold stories”. Of course, with it’s old-time charm and inviting style, this house brought about many interested buyers – both before and after being listed on the market. Right now, it’s not uncommon to get a few “off-market” bids for your property – and sure, accepting this might save you the cost of commission for your real estate agent, but it also almost always ensures that you’ll sell your home for much less than it could be worth by listing it on the market – this home is the perfect example!
Early in their selling journey our clients were approached with an off-market bid that they thought was a good offer, and considered accepting it. However, we encouraged them to put it up on the market, knowing they could get more by listing it – and they did – selling their home for $120,000 more than the original off-market bid would have provided them with!
Our clients and the purchasers of this beautiful home couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We’re so grateful that they trusted our expertise and followed our advise. It’s a win-win-win for all!
Lovingly owned for years by a family of artists, this three-plus-one bedroom charmer on Windermere is warm and inviting. In proper Walkerville fashion, the ceilings are high and the Craftsman-style trim is original. This house is sophisticated yet comfortable; its perfect mate is someone with a great library or art collection, or who enjoys Sunday morning walks to the city’s best cafés, shops and brunch spots. Speaking of location – this home is only a block away from the historic Willistead Manor park!
Great for entertaining, this home has a cozy living room and dining room area right off the main foyer – perfect for relaxing with family, or hosting get togethers with friends. The main floor also has a central kitchen and two-piece powder room. Honestly, this house truly has a great flow!
The second floor has three big bedrooms, and a four-piece bath, as well as a spacious landing-turned library. The third-floor loft space would make a bright, additional bedroom for a growing family or the perfect work-from-home studio.
There are so many other great features with this home; rear parking, heirloom garden, stamped concrete patio with pergola and fully updated mechanical. We knew this opportunity wouldn’t be around for very long and are so happy we were able to match it with buyers who will truly appreciate it.
