If you’ve suddenly found yourself spending a lot more time at home than usual, you’re not alone. For most of us, it’s a pretty stressful time, and being in the house so much is a bit of a chore. However, there’s some houses for sale in Canada that could make all of your social distancing dreams come true, and they're seriously extra!
Across the country, millions of Canadians are practicing social distancing, and that means staying in the house to eat, sleep, work, exercise, and socialize, as well as everything else.
For the majority of us, this means spending an awful lot of time watching Netflix, and plenty of time in bed.
However, there are some Canadian properties that are kitted-out beyond our wildest imagination, and spending several weeks self-isolating within them would be no problem at all!
Between spa-facilities, Olympic-size swimming pools, home cinema rooms, basketball courts, personal libraries and even bowling alleys, there would be no risk of getting bored in these Canadian mega-homes.
While most of us don’t have a cool $50 million in our wallet to spend on a luxury mansion, it’s nice to daydream about what self-isolation could be like.
Being home-alone never looked so good!
