What $800,000 Can Buy You Around Toronto

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can buy or rent for a set dollar amount in various Toronto neighbourhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's asking price: $800,000


Annex: The Annex neighbourhood near Bathurst and Bloor is known for its Honest Ed's strip, cheap sushi and unlimited self serve fro yo. Directly across from Mirvish Village is the area's newest condo known as the B.Streets, a nine-storey building. Asking $809,900, this three-bedroom is move-in ready this spring (and from the looks of things, it will be on time), and includes one car underground parking and a monthly maintenance fees of $515.04.


The Beach: Sometimes referred to as "The Beach," "Beaches" or "Beach Village," the area is still filled with Queen East fun. This renovated house is cozy, spacious and close to the water. With an adorable backyard and patio, it seems like a great space for those longing for a beach property. The house is listed for $829,900.


Roncesvalles: Houses are going fast in the Roncesvalles neighbourhood. Everyone wants a bite out of the area and a BBQ lunch and brunch at Barque's Smokehouse. This semi-detached house is a three-bedroom, two bathroom dwelling with renovations that kept the original character of the home. The green painted kitchen, funky light fixtures and poster of actor Will Ferrell in the bathroom adds additional fun. The property is listed for $849,999.


Etobicoke: Home of Mayor Rob Ford and his pals, this next listing is situated in the Long Branch community, south-west of Toronto. It's a four-bedroom, three bathroom detached house. The original owner is selling the property and grandma hasn't renovated since she moved in or ever. The clean and colourful house is listed for $819,000.


Queen's Quay: Here's a two-bedroom plus den by the city's waterfront. With a 180 degree view of the lake (which looks a lot nicer in the summer), this unit has $40,000 worth of upgrades. The maintenance fees are $663.75 but you can't be a dog-lover. There's no pets allowed in the building. The unit is listed for $820,000. · Curbed Comparisons Archives [Curbed Toronto]
