Rental of the Week: $5,500 per month for a Leslieville house with a unique design
An unfurnished custom house in Leslieville, with three bedrooms.
This home was designed by its owner, Toronto-based architect Craig Race, who finished building it last winter. The unique front exterior is covered in cedar shingles, while the rest of the exterior is built with rustproof and recyclable Galvalume panels. Race is now moving on to his next project, so he’s leasing the place out.

There are three bedrooms. Here’s one of them:
And here’s the master bedroom, which gets a bit of extra ceiling height from the peak of the roof:

The view from the rear:
The house is designed to be toasty in winter, in an energy-efficient way. The tenant can control the in-floor radiant heating with a smartphone, and triple-pane windows should keep chilly drafts at bay.
Possible deal breaker
Even though the house is a three-bedroom, its narrow hallways and relatively small living space might make it a tight squeeze for a family:
