This is what a $2 million house looks like in Toronto vs other cities

Toronto may not have the most expensive housing market in Ontario, but it's still not an affordable city by any means. 

Any home costing $2 million is nearly three times the price of the average home these days, meaning it's well above the means of the average household making $65,829 a year. Still, a Torontonian can dream of an elegant two-storey close to lush green space, can't they? 

Here's what a $2 million house looks like in Toronto versus other cities. 

Toronto - $1,999,999 CAD

Just steps from the beautiful Mount Pleasant Cemetery, the tree canopy in the Moore Park Ravine, and the sprawling David A. Balfour Park, this five-bedroom home's real value is its proximity to the city's most scenic artery and green spaces.

Sandwiched between nature hotspot Mont Royal and Montreal's touristic Golden Square Mile neighbourhood, this two-storey home maintains its old Victorian exterior from 1927, but like most of the houses in this neighbourhood, it's been totally renovated inside.
