Join those two unstoppable forces together, and you’ll wind up with a home that sells more quickly than you can say “new listing.” The show’s stars, Jonathan and Drew Scott completed a remarkable renovation of this mid-century modern way back in Season 4 of their long-running show.
After the home landed on the market a week ago, it took about a day for the current owners to accept an offer, which is likely to have been north of the $1.35 million list price.
If they managed to incite a bidding war and snag an offer over asking, it’ll be quite a sweet return on investment. The owners paid $347,500 for the place when they purchased it in 2011.
But when they bought it, the-two bedroom, 1,300-square-foot home was crumbling and full of dirt. It looked as if squatters had lived there. The upside?
It sat on a relatively large lot and was “in a great location, only minutes from downtown,” according to Drew.
After Jonathan had put a ton of effort, expertise, and $80,000 into the remodel, a new dwelling emerged. With a lot of hard work, he salvaged the original hardwood floors and some of the original built-ins.
He completely refurbished the home, from floor to ceiling. In his work, he took care to retain its mid-20th-century charm (it was built in 1951), while adding 21st-century functionality and style.
For example, the natural limestone fireplace, one of the home’s gorgeous original features, was preserved, polished, and repaired.
