Penthouses – at least as most of us know them – are for people with Drake’s money.

The open concept living room.

But if we follow the pedantic definition of a penthouse — a unit on the top floor of a building — there are actually quite a few on the market for less than $750,000.

Work from home with a view.

One of them being this corner unit on the 17th floor of the 17-story Cove at Waterways Condo in Etobicoke…although, if it’s actually on the “top floor” that’s debatable because there’s probably party and meeting rooms, the rooftop patio and other amenities above. But, you know, the semantics.

Listing for just $599,000, this one-bedroom, one-den condo boasts 10-foot ceilings and tons of natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows.
