Beachfront living is hard to come by in this city, especially for less than $1 million. But, every once in a while, a floating home for sale in Toronto offers the best of both worlds — gorgeous living on the water for less-than-average prices.
The two-storey home for sale is one of just 25 floating properties in the Scarborough Bluffs gated community.
The marina is situated down the road from the sandy beaches with Blue Flag water quality and a short commute into the city.

The home is ideal for the summer months, with multiple decks to soak up the waterfront views, including a rooftop terrace.
As for the home itself, the high ceilings and large windows give the interior a spacious feel. It comes with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, appliances, and even two parking spaces.
The home office setup faces a sliding glass door with a balcony, ideal for coffee breaks with a view.
A home with these features anywhere in the city would likely cost upwards of $1.5 million, but this floating home is priced at $849,000.
Keep in mind that you won’t able to get a traditional mortgage for this property.
Plus, in addition to property taxes, the marina amenities and direct hookup to the main dock for electrical and septic cost $811 per month.
But, for those looking for a unique place to call home without compromising on budget and proximity to the city, this floating home for sale in Toronto could be something to consider.
