Homes for $6.2 million near Vero Beach, Manhattan and Toronto

Like its southern neighbor, Canada’s real estate market is expected to see continued growth in 2021, particularly in the luxury sector. In Toronto, an emerging global hub, home sales of $5 million or more are up more than 8% year-on-year, while sales of $2 million or more are up about 10%. In March, the median home price was nearly $1.1 million, according to the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board.

In this week’s look at the world’s most beautiful homes, I compared properties in Toronto to similarly priced properties near Vero Beach, Florida and New York City. From a contemporary home in the heart of the West Village to a custom home on exclusive Old Colony Road, here’s a closer look at what about $6.2 million buys in Hutchinson Island, Manhattan and Toronto.

West Village, Manhattan, New York City | $6.5 million

This Greenwich Lane condominium in the heart of the West Village has been renovated from top to bottom and features a tasteful mix of high ceilings, wide plank floors and artsy fixtures. The unit has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in over 1,500 square feet of living space.

Characteristics: Walls of windows converge in the library/second bedroom to perfectly frame panoramic views of the nearby river and cityscape. The floor-to-ceiling glass continues in the living room and primary suite, the latter of which has been extensively updated with a marble clad bathroom and beautiful appliances.

Other benefits: Private storage and a lease for the seller’s garage — two hard-to-find items in the urban metropolis — can be included in the sale for an additional cost.
