One million dollars is a lot of money, although with the elevated real estate market in Collingwood and Canada, it may not buy you everything you want. Here is what $1 million gets you in 8 communties across Ontario.

Toronto

2,500 square foot condo in Kingsview Village. With access to a number of amenities, including pools, BBQs, tennis courts and featured as a resort style building, this property definitely has notes of luxury. With maintenance fees close to $2,000 a month, is it worth it for the $450,000 in upgrades, a grand foyer, limestone floors and a high-end kitchen?

London

This waterfront property is located on a river and 12.36 acres. With a number of renovations and upgrades, the older building (built in 1926) is in move-in condition. With five bedrooms, a formal dining room and beautiful views, this property is located only a minute out of the city.

St. Catherines

In an older part of the city, this home sits on ½ an acre in Twelve Mile Creek Valley. With extensive updates, including a gourmet kitchen with two islands and a vaulted ceiling, the property is very well-maintained. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, plus a family room, main floor office and a resort-like backyard with a pool and cabana house round out all of the best features of this home.

Oshawa

On a 69x158ft deep lot, this Oshawa home backs on to a ravine and is located on a cul-de-sac. Built very recently, it was outfitted with a number of upgrades like dark hardwood flooring, potlights, granite counters and a full brick and stone exterior. Four bedrooms and the conventional main floor rooms like a dining room, living room and kitchen round out the space.
