Live right on the water in this luxe Toronto float house listed for $1.298 million

Right on the water and in the heart of Bluffer’s Park cove, Toronto’s only float house neighbourhood consists of only two dozen residences, including the gorgeous 7 Brimley Rd. S.

Surrounded by the dramatic beauty of the Scarborough Bluffs escarpment, nature trails and beaches, living here is truly a rare opportunity in the city and offers a laid-back lifestyle more akin to a far-off seaside town than anything Toronto usually is known for.

Listed at $1.298 million and beautifully modern from top to bottom, this one-of-a-kind home at 7 Brimley Rd. S. offers three bedrooms and a rooftop patio. It’s also one of the largest legally developed float homes in Ontario.
