If settling down in an adorable cottage-style home is a dream of yours, it's about to get a whole lot more attainable. A North Vancouver man is giving away his heritage home for free and it might just be the cutest little place we've ever laid eyes on. The free Vancouver heritage home is up for grabs for anyone who wants it, but there's a bit of a catch. Though the home itself is free, the land isn't for sale. Therefore, you'll need to transport the little house to a new property.

If you own property already or you've got your eye on a chunk of land, you can scoop up the heritage home and drop it on your land. If not, this may not be the free property for you. Keep your eyes open, free homes don't come around often in Vancouver, or anywhere for that matter.

The heritage home is named the Copper Cottage or the James Residence and it's located at 336 East 9 St. in North Vancouver. 

According to North Shore Heritage, the cottage is abatable for re-location and it needs a new home. “Ideally, a property within the City of North Vancouver would be great but other locations can be considered,” says the North Shore Heritage website.

They recommend that the new owner use it as a coach house if they want to add it to a property that has an existing home already.

If you're interested, you need to hop on this hot deal ASAP. "Time is of the essence!" reads the website. All you need to do is get in touch with North Shore Heritage.

The home has a massive balcony spanning the entire front of the house, square columns along the veranda, and it’s painted a welcoming shade of yellow.

There are two floors, two bedrooms, a cozy living room, and so much room for activities. There’s even a little workshop.

Basically, we're in love with this heritage house and if you don't (literally) scoop it up, we will.

Vancouver housing is less than ideal when it comes to rental prices, and don't even get us started on those brave souls that decide to venture into the Vancouver real estate market.

Not much in life is free, but this home is. So, get your land ready, because it might be getting a super cute addition.
