For most millennials, buying a home one day sounds more like a fairytale than a five-year plan. Either way, it's nice to dream. Every once in a while, a property comes along that gives us a glimmer of hope that being a homeowner could actually be our reality. For instance, this B.C. home for sale right now costs only $165,000 and it's right on a lake.
If you've ever been to Salmon Arm, B.C., you know that the small lake town is perfect for a summer getaway or maybe even planting roots one day.
If you're not sold on the town, this house should do the trick. It's cheap enough that it could even be used as a weekend or summer home if you prefer city living with a getaway plan.
The house sits on Kangaroo Road and has three bedrooms and one bathroom.
In total, it’s 2,070 square feet and the layout really makes the most of the space. In addition to the house, you’ll find a workshop, carport, and even some extra parking.
From the massive wrap-around patio you’ll be able to see the mountains and the lake at the same time.
As for the inside, each room is quirky but cute and extremely spacious. There’s even a loft that’s great for a master bedroom or a cozy little reading nook if you love your privacy.
You’ll have a wood stove, tons of shelving for all your books, and even a basement for storage.
What’s got us the most excited is the patio. It’s completely covered so you can listen to the rain patter without getting wet on those early spring mornings. Or, you can look out over the lake without getting a sunburn in the summer.
Perfect for entertaining and tucked away in the forest, this place will feel like a zen retreat away from the hustle and bustle.
It's important to note that this is a leasehold property. That means that you'd be buying the home while leasing the land.
Because this home is on Crown Land, meaning that it's owned by the government, you would be responsible for a yearly payment. Though, it can be lowered if you plan on using this property part-time on the weekends or seasonally.
There are a few things to take into account before hopping on this one, but that $165,000 price tag doesn't look too shabby.
