1. Old-fashioned lakefront log cabins in Saskatchewan’s boreal forest
Address: Cabins on Delaronde Lake
Were: Big River, Saskatchewan
Specs: 5 beds, 2 baths
Forget trying to figure out how to afford that family compound in Muskoka — go west, people! This collection of structures includes a 2,300-square-foot log cabin with renos (sunken living room, deck) and a four-room cabin fronting 60 metres of Delaronde Lake. Its current owners arrive by air, but driving in also gets you here too.
2. Century-old home in Ontario’s wine country
Address: 506 Mississauga Street
Where: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
Specs: 3 bed, 2 bath
This fairytale cottage sits on 55’ x 206’ of property in pretty Niagara-on-the-Lake. Keep it as a pint-sized AirBnB or redevelop it to suit your own modern-day dream.
3. Europe-worthy penthouse in Old Montreal.
Address: #402, 64 Rue St-Paul Ouest
Where: Ville-Marie (Montreal), Quebec
Specs: 2 bed, 2 bath
Even the most continental among us cannot feel the love for laptop-sized washing machines or doll-sized fridges. This penthouse in Old Montreal is the closest thing to living in Europe this side of the Pond: views of the city and river with a private terrace, swish new kitchen (stainless steel appliances, quartz counter tops), and a locker on the same floor as your suite. No more basement bike locker!
