Agent Michael Markovich says his clients from Thornhill were thrilled to purchase this custom home in the prestigious Avenue Road and Lawrence Avenue area, so they could easily get to the women's clothing shop that they own and operate on Avenue.
"They get stuck in that bustling traffic all the time," Mr. Markovich says. "[Now], it's like a two-minute walk to their store, but they've still got that quiet, neighbourly feel."
The buyers were also pleased with the rare 25-by-150-foot lot that has a private driveway and deep, south-facing yard, Mr. Markovich says. "If someone wanted to put in a big lap pool, they could easily do it."
The highlights of the two-year-old home include a stone, stucco and plaster exterior, and interior finishes that range from hardwood floors to California shutters.
