Sold! Modern Toronto home goes for $2.5 million

This home was first listed back in 2018 at $2,850,000. When there were no takers, they dropped it to $2,800,000. Then it went to $2,699,000 and so on and so on, until finally settling on $2,599,000.102 leacrest road torontoAnd they still didn’t get asking! The home went for $2,487,500 — just a cool $100K under asking. Still, almost $2.5 million is nothing to shake a stick at.

102 leacrest road torontoThe home is quite lovely. It’s a new build done by Nathalie Thorel of Interior Affairs and Patrick Skuce of Caledon Building and Design, according to real estate gossip site The Mash.

102 leacrest road torontoThere are four bedrooms and four bathrooms in the home. Not every room has a closet, so that’s not entirely ideal if you plan on using all the rooms as bedrooms. But, it could be totally fine if you want a home office.

Why it sold for what it did?

It’s a lovely home, but the location isn’t the most ideal; the North Toronto Wastewater Treatment Plant is only a few blocks away and it’s a corner lot, which has drawbacks as well.    102 leacrest road toronto

Was it worth it?

I wouldn’t say the price is outrageous for a new build, but they clearly struggled to sell it. The proximity to the treatment plant may have been a factor here.102 leacrest road toronto
