The action

This three bedroom home on a 1.26 acre lot sits across from a green space along Lake Scugog. Its price was deliberately low at $1.25 million in March to attract as many potential buyers as possible, and it did so, attracting visitors from as far away as Peterborough and Toronto. A total of 18 parties filed bids and it was sold at a bid of $1.775 million.

“Listed prices are generally below the anticipated sale price to generate activity, and that was our strategy on this property,” agent Malcolm Macaulay said.

“We were expecting $1.5 million, so we were surprised with $1.775 million.”

what they have

This house was built just over 30 years ago with living space spread over four levels.

There are three bedrooms on the upper level. One floor below is the kitchen with dining area and the living and dining room. A fourth bedroom and a family room with a gas fireplace are located on the lower level. The basement is a recreation room.

“The special thing about this house is that it has a double tandem garage, so you can have four cars in the garage,” Macaulay said.

“And there’s a pool and fire pit on lovely private grounds, so there were a lot of great features in the property.

“In this neighborhood, they’re all one-acre plus lots,” Macaulay said.

“Port Perry has a great downtown area with good dining options and quaint shops. They also shoot a lot of Hallmark movies there, it’s got that old country, that downtown feel.
