What kind of house does $1.75 million get you in Toronto?
If you have $1.75 million to spend on a home in Toronto, you can look sympathetically at those who cant, because your real estate search is going to be a lot different. While the market is still wildly competitive at this price range, some modest luxury is on offer, and there's certainly enough space for those raising growing families.
Here's what a $1.75 million house looks like in Toronto.
$1,799,000 in the Beaches
This four bedroom, five bathroom Beaches residence is just lovely. The interior is nearly new, the kitchen begs for some long dinner preparation, and the upstairs deck looks like an ideal spot to relax outdoors with some privacy. The linear (gas) fireplace is a nice touch.
$1,780,000 near Mt. Pleasant and Lawrence
This sturdy brick semi-detached home in North Toronto only features three bedrooms but it's a beauty from a design standpoint. While the exterior might be termed classic, the interior is decidedly modern with a unique atrium and super slick kitchen. The kicker for me, however, is the multiple wood burning fireplaces.
$1,748,888 near Eglinton and Keele
You can get a virtually palatial property for $1.75 million if you're willing to buy far enough away from downtown Toronto. This house only features four bedrooms, but each room is far more spacious than what you'll find in a more central counterpart. The area currently isn't great for transit (despite a score of 71), but with the arrival of the Eglinton Crosstown, things are looking up.
$1,699,000 near Yonge and Eglinton
Yonge and Eglinton is quickly becoming a vertical neighbourhood, but if you love the area and want a backyard, this three bedroom semi on Edith Dr. is nice option. It features a hyper-modern interior and four washrooms (something you're not likely to see in a condo of similar price). The secondary bedrooms are on the small side, but the master is roomy enough to warrant the title.
$1,649,000 near Dundas and Gladstone
Dundas West is still surrounded by an interesting hodgepodge of homes, but also recent builds like this contemporary house on Lisgar St. This one is a bit strange because the bland interior doesn't entirely match the exterior, which seems to promise a bright and airy design. Everything feels a bit cookie cutter, but the location and size are still great.
Would you buy any of these homes if you were in the market? Let us know in the comments.
