Melville Av­enue (near Christie and Dupont). Listed for $899,900, sold for $1,300,000. This four-bed­room Vic­to­rian semi was last ren­o­vated in the 1980s, and it was in need of work, which seemed to be in progress: the sec­ond-storey walls were noth­ing but blue Sty­ro­foam. But the house had some good fea­tures, in­clud­ing high ceil­ings, a spa­cious garage and a rentable base­ment apart­ment (also on the wish list). There were nine other bid­ders, so Lhara and Michael de­cided not to mess around. They went all in at $1,230,000. Un­for­tu­nately, they weren’t the only ones de­ter­mined to find a place in the area. In the end, they lost out by $70,000.
