This is what $850K can get you just one hour from Toronto (PHOTOS)

They say real estate is all about location.

Well, whoever said that was either a billionaire or didn’t live in Toronto. ‘Cause these days it’s nearly impossible to be able to afford, well, any kind of house.

The average price for a home in the GTA is currently just over $900,000. So we thought we’d look just slightly past the limits of greater Toronto and find something for roughly the same price.

And it’s stunning.

Currently listed for $849,000, this 4-bed Victorian in Port Hope is just an hour and 10-minute Go Train ride from downtown Toronto. And it means having, you know, space for a family.

If you want a Toronto comparison, here’s a 2-bed, 2-bath condo at CityPlace you can maul over.

In the meantime, we’ll be busy staring at the beauty below.

Living room/Dining room

Yes, you can have both here. In legitimately separate rooms.

Family room

This room alone would be considered an amazing apartment in downtown Toronto.


Two islands. TWO!!

Guest rooms

Yes, plural. You can have lots of people come and stay. Everyone knows parties don’t end till the morning anyway.

Master bedroom/bath

Usually king-size beds make bedrooms look small. This house does the opposite.

Basement Pool room

Fact: You need to know how to play snooker to live here. Cigar smoking optional.


On top of a two-car garage. Obviously.


If you need us, we’ll be here all summer.
