A basement apartment in Toronto is selling for $1.1 million

Normally people in Toronto do anything and everything to avoid living in a basement apartment. 

It's that necessary evil of your first student apartment, because it's all you can afford to rent.

But when it comes time to actually owning property, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who is actively seeking to live below ground. 

And yet, this condo in this heritage church conversion in Leslieville is on the market for $1.1 million, or more precisely $1,099,999.  175 jones ave

Church conversions are cool, and this one does definitely puts most basement apartments out there to shame. Especially since most of it is above ground. The unit has two floors – one that's half underground and the main floor which is above ground.
