Sold! Toronto home right on the lake goes for $1.9 million

Lake Shore Drive is home to some of the nicest properties in Toronto. While many look unremarkable when viewed from the street, it's their phenomenal lakefront backyards that make these houses so special.

Updates can always be made inside, but the view is already a thing of beauty. There just aren't that many lakefront homes in big cities like Toronto.
