The action

The two-storey house on Chauncey Ave. in Etobicoke was crafted on eco-friendly principles with a modern, high-end design.RARE REAL ESTATE INC.

Infill builder Hauswork Ltd. used feedback from a pair of three-bedroom houses in Etobicoke it put up several years ago in constructing this four-bedroom house across the street. The resulting design attracted five bidders and the back and forth competition ended in a winning offer $42,000 over asking.

“There’s very little out there that you can compare to this house in that area and in that price,” agent Mary Jo Vradis said.

“More people than average wanted four bedrooms in a newly constructed home, because you can have the work-at-home scenario. And it also has a finished walkout basement that could be an apartment … because it had a roughed-in kitchen and bathroom.”
