65 Imperial Street Toronto

This Toronto home sold for more than $1 million over asking in under a week

While the Toronto real estate market is known to move quickly, and homes frequently sell for over asking they usually don't go for $1.2 million over asking in under a week. 

But that's exactly what happened with 65 Imperial Street.

It was originally listed for $3,995,000 on March 2 and by March 8 it sold for $5,200,000

The formal living room is large enough to fit a grand piano. 

And once you look at the home you start to understand why.

An additional bedroom in the basement has been turned into an office. 

"The house had such a special feel - you could just tell that the current owners loved it!" realtor Cailey Heaps told blogTO.

The primary ensuite. 

"The way the house was situated on the lot, also allowed for a very gracious centre-hall plan that was flooded with light. It was sited in a way that there was only really one neighbour, so it had quite a commanding presence, and the layout and interior design was spectacular."

65 Imperial Street is also in a great location. It's close to all the shops and restaurants on Yonge Street, as well as transit and green space at Oriole Park.

"This stellar property offers a unique opportunity to own a truly one of- a-kind home in one of Toronto’s most sought-after neighbourhoods," added Heaps.

The home also has a detached two-car garage. 

And it seems like the new owners understood that well enough to pay an extra $1,205,000 to get that opporunity.
