Condo of the Week: $800,000 for a Leaside suite with a spacious garden
The Place: A two-bedroom unit on the first floor of a mid-rise building at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.
Bragging Rights: It’s just a block from Bayview Avenue, where there will soon be a new Whole Foods. No inferior produce for the owners of this place, no sir.
Big Selling Point: The master bedroom opens out onto a 680-square-foot garden terrace. There’s a wrought iron fence around it, which makes it perfect for an owner who wants to let a dog run around off-leash. There’s also a gate on the fence, meaning barbecue guests will never need to walk through the condo with their shoes on.
Possible Deal Breaker: Because it’s at ground level, the terrace isn’t particularly private. Neighbours will know if they’re not invited to a garden party.

• 1,000 square feet
• 680-square-foot terrace
• $644 in monthly maintenance fees
• 10-foot ceilings
