7 of the Most Luxurious Townhouses in Toronto

Townhouses are growing in popularity across Canada, especially in hot markets where the price of singly-family homes continues to rise. According to the Canadian Real Estate Association, sales of this housing type are up 17.4 per cent year over year in June.

Within the Toronto real estate market, townhouses also present a relative bargain; they were priced at an average of $704,449 last month, reveals the Toronto Real Estate Board, compared to an average of $1,386,524 for detached houses.

However, this low-rise option is becoming highly sought among affluent home buyers as well. A report from Sotheby’s International Realty Canada states sales of multi-unit housing priced above $1 million are up a whopping 98 per cent year this year. Sales of Toronto townhouse units priced over $4 million rose 150 per cent.

Stated Sotheby’s CEO Brian Henderson, “Multi-unit residential, whether it’s condos or townhomes, is becoming a choice for move-up buyers or right-sizers because they’re looking to focus on something where it’s a bit more affordable, and wanting to have a good address and still have enough space for their stuff and lifestyle.”
