Naturalists Rejoice: Unbelievable Downtown Toronto Floating Home Lists For $399,000

City Living, Real Estate

For the naturalist who is also a busy professional working in Toronto’s downtown financial core, we recognize it can be difficult to find accommodation which allows you to unwind after navigating the freneticism of corporate culture, let alone the ravages of everyday life.

Especially if you find your greatest peace being on the water. Which, by the way, we think you’ll enjoy this Dear Urbaneer post that answered What Are The Benefits Of Living Near Water?)

So, do you love the idea of living on the water in downtown Toronto?



Here’s an unbelievable opportunity to acquire Floating House; a sleek, solar-powered and open-source dwelling for only $399,000!


Just transport yourself permanently into your imagination, where this ‘Too Good To Be True’ Home exists.

After all, today is April 1st, 2021, where good-natured trickery is celebrated and embraced!






Actually, these amazing images created by Carl Turner Architects were featured in an article in Mother Nature Network about an experimental website called Paperhouses, who in addition to providing free blueprints “will also help facilitate the building process, recommending local building professionals that can help users realize the floating home of their dreams (all for under $300,000, apparently)”. Neat eh?
