House of the Week: $1.1 million for a brand-new family home just north of Christie Pits


If you’re a fan of modern design, you’ll want to check this one out – but the backyard, is, well… small. The house is about 2700 square feet, with a deck off the master suite.

ADDRESS: 132 Yarmouth Road

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Dovercourt-Wallace-Emerson-Junction

PRICE: $1,149,000

THE PLACE: A newly constructed three-bedroom home with a contemporary look near Dupont’s bustling strip of design stores.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: An abundance of glass—from the front exterior to the glass curtain running down the three flights of stairs—gives the house an undeniably clean vibe.

BIG SELLING POINT: The master ensuite feels like a Zen spa, with its rain showerhead, private deck and Japanese-inspired tub (though the square edges on the latter may take some getting used to).

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Your Windex budget would have to double, at least.
