Toronto's housing market is always an interesting place to browse just for fun. Desirable Toronto houses for sale can be hard to find on a budget. You truly never know what you're going to get, as there is always a wide array of questionable listings with super high price tags. Every once in a while, we spot a hidden gem, and this week is one of those times. 

While casually scrolling through, we noticed this totally unusual and great value listing that we couldn't believe exists in this city. 

From the outside, it looks pretty unsuspecting. A long, rectangular-shaped home with a small balcony and tiny windows. The initial appeal was that it is right on the water, which is a rare find in Toronto. It is also under $600,000, which is a steal in the housing market today. 

However, when taking a look inside it's easy to get that giddy feeling of when you finally find the perfect under-the-radar home after countless disappointing viewings (something every Torontonian can relate to).

The place is a total hidden gem and looks way more spacious from the inside. Not only is there space, it also has quality floors and bathrooms, which is a luxury few sellers can provide these days. Have a look for yourself.


As you can see, the main eye-grabbing quality is that it is right on the water. Yes, on the water. The house can actually be seen docked on the lake. Allowing you to live your dream of waking up lakeside every day. 

The inside is just as glamorous. A totally spacious, tastefully arranged, well-built new home.

The listing says it was built this year, meaning a minimal need for any renovations for years to come. A nice change from the usual decades-old homes which have a multitude of things to fix. Also a way better option than the tiny glass box condos that are on the market for the same price.


The interior lets in much more light than what we would've expected and every room is a bright colour, giving the cottage some true charm. 


This place is a decent size! Between 1100 and 1500 square feet, according to the listing, which doesn't give a fixed square footage. 

It features a full kitchen, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms all for $599,000. 


This place has been on the market for 39 days, so if you are a prospective home buyer, we would recommend calling them up.

This will definitely not be around for much longer. Check out the listing here. It also has it's own deck on the water, just like in cottage country, except this is in Toronto. A true one-of-a-kind.
