What kind of house does $3.5 million get you in Toronto?
The $3.5 million house in Toronto is a reminder that this city ain't New York or London. If you have this much to spend on a home here, you're going to be able to snag a property that's both spacious and legitimately luxurious. While the Bridle Path is still far out of reach, Toronto homes in this price range leave little to be desired.
Here's what a $3.5 million house looks like in Toronto.
A modern brick house in North York for $3,279,000
Coming in at just under the $3.5 million mark, this Banbury house is the contemporary version of a solid brick home. There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms, but the big story is the design, which is modern without feeling ultra minimal or cold. It also features a huge backyard and a lovely deck to hang out on after a long workday. The only drawback is the modest Walk Score of 65.
A corner lot in Don Mills for $3,488,000
Here's a mini-palace on a quiet crescent in Don Mills that will appeal to those who've always dreamed of a dramatically styled home. In addition to the neoclassical exterior columns, the sprawling entrance features tons of marble and a curved staircase. With seven washrooms, no one will ever have to hold it again.
An old mansion in Parkdale for $3,495,000
This house is a throwback to the early days of Parkdale when it was home to wealthy folks who wanted to live close to the lake. As parts of the neighbourhood return to these roots, old mansions like this one have become highly desirable, even if they require interior renovations. Green thumbs will love the backyard greenhouse.
A row of houses on Dundas West for $3,599,999
How far does $3.5 million go in the city? Well, you can buy a row of homes on Dundas near Parliament. This investment opportunity comes with 14 parking spaces to go with the three homes that have been broken up into apartments. A savvy investor might renovate one of them as a pimp pad on the east side while making cash off of the other two.
A modern build in Ledbury Park for $3,595,000
Some might characterize this as having it all in Toronto. This gorgeous contemporary home is located close to transit and shopping in Ledbury Park, features a stunning kitchen and en suite bathroom, and a surprisingly big backyard. The realtors are determined to sell it as located in Lawrence Park, but being on the west side of Avenue Rd. isn't really a drawback considering the property.
