House of the Week: $3.5 million for a 110-year-old home owned by ex-NHL player Nick Kypreos
ADDRESS: 33 Heather Road
THE PLACE: A 110-year-old red brick home (that was fully renovated in 2004), set on one of the largest lots in Leaside.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: This home puts the “Lea” in “Leaside”—it was built in 1902 for John Edmund Lea, a member of the prominent family that gave the neighbourhood its name.
BIG SELLING POINT: Those less interested in history lessons may be impressed that the current owner is Nick Kypreos, a former NHL player (with the New York Rangers and Maple Leafs) and Sportsnet host.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The massive backyard has a great playground set with swings, a circular slide and a playhouse, so you’ll have to contend with hordes of neighbourhood kids wanting to play. Better stock up on Sunny D while you’re at Pusateri’s.

• $16,895.11 (2011 taxes)
• 110 years old
• 80-foot-by-150-foot lot
