68 Jackson Avenue Toronto

Sold! Country-style mansion goes for $3.1 million in Toronto

These days Toronto is probably better known for its sleek minimalist houses than for residences that seem like they'd be at home on a sprawling country estate, but there's plenty of recent builds that eschew contemporary designs for more traditional architecture.

Location-wise, this one reaps all the benefits of inner suburban living, which isn't as car-dependent these days.

It's big, it's (relatively) new, and it sits on a huge corner plot on a quiet street. There are no big surprises here.

This one sold for $95K under asking, but that's not a big enough number to dwell upon. Does this look like a $3 million house? It does to me.
