1. On the range in Alberta
Address: Near Waterton National Park
Where: Cardston, AB
Specs: 4 bedrooms, 3 baths
You know you’re getting away from it all when your house doesn’t even have an address, but is simply referred to as “4.99 Acres” on the listings website. Located on an extremely private parcel not far from world famous Waterton Lakes National Park, this rough-hewn log home includes modern stainless-steel appliances and a three-car garage to store all your toys.
2. A Pleasantville home in Ottawa
Address: 8 Forest Park Ave.
Where: Fisher Heights, ON
Specs: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths
Everything about this 1965 house is just homey: a mid-century brick façade, open-concept great room, big private backyard. The 1950s neighbourhood still retains loads of charm, but the home’s retrofitted bathrooms and kitchen mean it’s solidly the 21st century inside.
3. A grand old dame near Quebec City
Address: 79 Rue Wolfe
Where: Desjardins (Lévis), QC
Specs: 7 bedrooms, 3 baths
In the heart of Old Lévis sits this century-old house in all its majestic glory: 10-and-a-half-foot ceilings, a sitting room and a $120,000 renovated kitchen heavy on dark wood. There are more antiques, chintz and swag drapery than you can shake a parasol at, which can all be yours if you’d like to buy it furnished.
