Property snoop: What $1,000,000 buys across Canada this week

A vineyard in British Columbia, a modern home in Price Edward County and a stylish loft in Old Montreal. Yes, we've got wine on the mind this week.

1. A ten-acre working vineyard in British Columbia.

Winery BC

The home is surrounded by glorious mountain and vineyard views.

Address: 3249 River Road
Where: Keremios, BC
Price: $999,900
Specs: 4 bedrooms, 2 bath
Why buy the wine when you can get the vines for free? For the price of a condo in Vancouver (and not even the swankiest one at that), you could own LadyHawke Vineyards just four hours away. Here you’ve got over 10 acres, a turnkey vineyard operation in the Similkameen wine region of British Columbia, plus an orchard (with apricot, plum, cherry and peach trees). The home could use a little TLC, but, hey, after a few glasses of your Marechal Foch Riesling, everything improves. And did we mention you now own a winery?

2. A modern oasis in the middle of Ontario wine country

Prince Edward County

The sky-high ceilings and windows mean this house receives incredible natural light.

Address: 421 Chase Rd.
Where: Prince Edward County, ON
Price: $985,000
Specs: 5 bedrooms, 3 bath
Ten years ago the idea of spending $1,000,000 in Prince Edward County would have seemed as inconceivable as finding contemporary architecture there. But now, everyone has fallen in love with the County’s rural idyll. And, this white walled, steel and glass home on 5.6 acres, smack in the middle of wine country, seems like the perfect getaway—plus it’s priced enough under a million to allow you to buy a very useful riding mower.

3. A luxurious loft in historic Montreal


Cool brick walls line the interior of this trendy space.

Address: #510, 64 Rue St-Paul O.
Where: Montreal, PQ
Price: $999,000
Specs: 2 bedrooms, 2 bath
The three design hallmarks that Montreal does better than anyone—lofts, heritage and European style—converge in this beautiful spot in Old Montreal. And while we’re gaga over the 2054 sq/ft of interiors, featuring a mix of cool minimalism and rich history (the building was built in 1876), it’s the 430 sq/ft roof deck with views over the city and old port that will have you reaching for your chequebook.
