If you have over a million bucks to spend on a condo in Toronto, you're not going to want for much in terms of amenities or space. While this amount doesn't purchase ultimate luxury, condos in the $1,250,000 range are noticeably superior to those right at the million mark. Phew. It's good to know $250K buys you something.
Here's what a $1,250,000 condo looks like in Toronto.
$1,279,000 near Bathurst and Queens Quay
This unit is located in one of Toronto's nicest condo buildings, the restored Tip Top Tailors building right on the waterfront. The location is ideal, and the two-level space is anything but cookie cutter. You only get two bedrooms but there are three bathrooms and Coronation Park is at your doorstep. Maintenance fees are $945.99 a month.
$1,280,000 near Old Mill
This unit at 1 Old Mill Drive isn't that most interesting from a design standpoint, but it features two balconies with a 270 degree view of the city. With three bedrooms and bathrooms spread over 1,448 square feet, there's plenty of space. Maintenance fees come it at $826.01.
$1,298,000 near Ryerson
This slick penthouse loft is located right next to Ryerson's campus. At 1,950 square feet over two storeys, the two bedrooms are above average in size, but it's the long window-studded hallway that gives the unit a unique design. The kitchen is chef-friendly and the outdoor terrace offers lovely downtown views. Maintenance fees are $1,102.32 a month.
$1,298,000 near Sherwood Park
Made for empty nesters, this ornate condo near Bayview and Blythwood has high end finishes and tons of amenities (steams rooms sound nice), but you better not like pets. Those aren't allowed here. With only two bedrooms, the grandkids will be discouraged from staying over. Maintenance fees are $850.30 a month.
$1,299,000 near High Park
Located atop High Park, this is a rare one bedroom unit for just shy of $1.3 million. That'll make for one sick bachelor pad. The interior design is meh, but the views are stunning and the location can't be beat for those who like to spend time out of doors. Maintenance fees are $1,039.28 a month.
