A good house can be hard to find. A good house for cheap can be even harder. Luckily, there's a Nova Scotia house for sale that fulfills both needs: it's got waterfront views and rustic charm, and it costs less than $150,000.

Located at 247 Water Street (appropriately named) in Freeport, Nova Scotia, this home immediately gives off a classical vibe.

That's no coincidence either: it was actually constructed in 1915, meaning it's been standing for more than a century. It's two years older than the infamous Halifax explosion.

At 1,780 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it may not be the largest house on the market. However, as a starter home, it has plenty to offer.

Despite its age, this house has had tons of upgrades to bring it into the 21st century. It's had new electrical and plumbing installed, as well as a brand new ductless heat pump.

The main floor is an inviting space. It features an open concept dining room and lounge, as well as a gorgeous modern kitchen and family room.

Upstairs you'll find a full bathroom along with two bedrooms, including a beautiful master with a custom-made walk-in closet. The waterfront views from here are breathtaking.

If you found yourself in need of a third bedroom, the listing suggests converting the den area on the main floor by installing a new wall.

Outside, a cozy porch offers relaxing and picturesque views of Freeport Cove.

If that's not enough outdoor space, the property also includes a waterfront lot across the street. It would make the perfect spot for a couple of cozy lawn chairs.

This classic, inviting family home, perfect for vacations or as a new home, is on the market for only $138,000.

Since so many renovations have already been completed, you wouldn't even have to spend too much additional money on fixing the place up.
