If you had $1 million, you could buy a one-bedroom condo in Toronto

Last Updated Oct 14, 2015 at 8:10 am EST

Unit 127 at 326 Carlaw Ave. is on the market for $1.129 million. REMAX.

It’s not llamas, emus, or even a whole house. Unlike the classic Barenaked Ladies song If I Had A Million Dollars, that kind of money will net you a mere one-bedroom condo in Toronto.

However, at the very top of the pricy condo market, just six of the city’s 10 most expensive units cost more than $1 million.

Practically a bargain!

Real estate search website Point2 Homes compiled a list of the 10 most expensive one-bedroom condos in the city. Most of them are in the downtown core, spread among Yorkville, The Annex, and the Bay Street corridor.

Take a look around – are they worth it? Or would you spend your money on the fanciest ketchups?

No. 10

There are two one-bedroom condos tied for the number 10 spot, with a price tag of $849,000. Each, not combined.

One unit, at 38 Avenue Rd., comes with access to a gym, sauna, and party room, while the unit itself has a walk-in bathroom and nine-foot ceilings.

Look at the pale grey floors at this Yorkville condo. They’re definitely worth the $849,999 price tag. The unit at 133 Hazelton Ave. comes with access to the building’s guest suites, exercise room, and media room.

It includes soaring ceilings, a private rooftop garden, and the opportunity to tell your friends you live in a converted warehouse.

Parking is extra.
