House of the Week: $889,000 for a brand new three-bedroom home in Leslieville
Address: 5 Craven Road
Agent: Ali Fadhil, Century 21 Innovative Realty
The Place: An airy Leslieville house with a modern look and an open-plan layout inspired by upscale condos.
Bragging Rights: The home was only finished this year and has never been lived in, which means no worries about decades-old bathtub rings or mold in the air conditioning unit.
Big Selling Point: If you need some help with the mortgage, you should have no problem finding a tenant. The basement has a separate entrance, a gleaming bathroom and nine-foot ceilings, and a kitchen and a laundry room are both already roughed in.
Possible Deal Breaker: Living on Craven Road could set you up for some teasing about being a coward—especially among Game of Thrones fans.
