If you’ve somehow saved enough money to put down a down payment on a Toronto-area starter condo, you might prefer to give it all up for a single month’s rent in a particularly candle-lit two-bedroom apartment in the city. which is being advertised by its owner for a ridiculously high price.

The apartment is probably one of the nicest in town, but the rental price is absolutely insane.

The ninth-floor condo in the boutique building at 500 Wellington Street West is billed as a “spa in the sky” and is certainly unique, breathtaking, and beautiful — but, at just two bedrooms, its rental rate of $19,000 a month (plus a few utilities, no less) is sure to be too much for almost any renter in town.

The unit is beautifully decorated with everything upscale and a ton of unique features.

Yes, you and however many roommates you can fit into the place to cover costs will enjoy a private walk-up elevator and the most luxurious fixtures and fittings, from an infrared sauna to walk-in closets with refrigeration drawers.

Direct-access private elevator, anyone?

There are also 10-foot ceilings, a kitchen covered in Italian marble, integrated air purification and aromatherapy systems, and “spa-like suites” that are meant to “create the ultimate environment for well-being and tranquility,” the rental listing reads.

It is also furnished with designer and expert furniture and decoration.

Any normal person would probably feel a little out of place in such a luxurious environment.

And, yes, the space is gigantic and bright, with three bathrooms, a huge balcony, and 2,440 square feet in total.

This is an absolutely outstanding apartment with more than you could ever dream of – but still…$19,000 a month?!

Anyone with enough money to pay that price in rent would more than likely buy a house (or a few) on their own.

You won’t need to bring your own furniture, but you will need to commit to a one-year lease and pay maintenance fees in addition to your monthly rent of $19,000.

Then again, with landlords charging close to $3,000 a month for tiny, generic studios and some non-bedroom apartments for $3,500, perhaps that price isn’t unrealistic at all, and l Unit will soon be filled with enough very wealthy tenants.
