Toronto Life’s top 10 houses and condos of 2016

Every week on Torontolife.com, we highlight a few houses and condos around the city that are either currently on the market or recently sold. Readers seem to relish the voyeuristic thrill of checking out the insides of homes that don’t belong to them, and who can blame them? With the upsurge in Toronto’s housing prices still going strong, looking at properties is a whole lot cheaper than buying—and a lot less risky, too.

Here, the ten houses and condos our readers liked best in 2016. Click on the titles to see more photos.
