Toronto Luxury Real Estate: A Turnkey Opportunity in Lawrence Park SOLD

After a whirlwind week launching this stunning property to market we are pleased to say it sold, attracting seven offers within three days of listing, and ultimately selling well above the list price (107%).  The average number of days on market for that area is 29 days for new listings and 44 when you include re-listed properties!

My clients had made it clear that they did not want it to sit on market for a long time, so we came up with a unique marketing strategy for a successful sale within a short period of time. Everyone has a different story and every home is unique, so it is key to be mindful of your client’s wishes while working to highlight the features of a property that make it stand out over others.

It was a pleasure working on this sale as we have very happy sellers and a lovely young couple about to start their new chapter in this beautiful Lawrence Park home. My mantra is always “a successful deal is one where sellers and buyers are happy with the result!”

A Turnkey Opportunity in Lawrence Park

278 St. Leonard’s Crescent 

This home in the wonderful Lawrence Park community has been maintained meticulously by the same family for over 25 years. The moment you walk through the front door you can see the exceptional quality. The house was a mid-century gem originally built in 1964. The current owners renovated when they bought the home in 1993, then re-renovated and expanded it in 2002. Lorne Rose Architect and JTF Homes were the team in the redesign and renovation with Melody Duron assisting with the interior design. It checks all the boxes, with gracious principal rooms, a custom gourmet kitchen, a main floor home office/den, main floor family room, mudroom, stunning principal suite, large recreation room, home gym and beautifully landscaped property with a private garden created by renowned landscape architect Egils Didrichsons. 

The location is ideal and close to Toronto French School, Crescent School, the Granite Club, Sunnybrook Park and Cheltenham Park. The Shops at Don Mills, Pusateri’s, Summerhill Market and the many shops and restaurants on Bayview Avenue are also close by.
