A family of four find their happy place in Scarborough—for $915,000
Lady Sarah Crescent (near McCowan and McNicoll). Listed for $799,900, sold for $915,000. Samir was in tears when they lost the Portwine place, but this one cheered him. The kids ran upstairs and stumbled upon the owner’s impressive collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Downstairs, Samir admired the finished basement, which he reckoned could be rented out as a two-bedroom apartment. The couple bid $851,800, and hoped, for that price, to get both the property and the George Lucas shrine. The seller demurred, so they dropped the Star Wars condition, upped their offer, and won the place in the fourth round of bidding.
