It's not often that you can find a beautiful house in a great location for less than $500,000. This Nova Scotia oceanfront house is so cheap that even a condo in Toronto costs more than it does. If that doesn't make you sad about real estate in Canada, then we don't know what will.
For $469,900 you could be the proud owner of this four-bedroom, two-bathroom house right on the water in East Dover.
The 2,270-square-foot home sits on almost 1.4 acres of property in the province's quaint Prospect community and right on the shores of the tranquil Kileys Cove.
It's uniquely shaped, with a flat, almost completely vertical back that's covered in shingles, while the front of the house is more like what you're used to seeing.
There are two balconies and a wrap-around porch at the front, facing the Atlantic.
With direct access to the water, the shore is so close it's basically part of the backyard.
You can kayak or swim in the blue waters or go out to explore one of the many islands around.
The house is just 25 minutes from Halifax and 10 minutes away from Peggy's Cove and its iconic lighthouse.
Most rooms in the house offer ocean views and there's about 240 feet of ocean frontage on the property.
While some parts of the house like the kitchen and living room could use a little bit of an update, it's still a beautiful place to live.
Since you probably wouldn't have to spend your entire life savings just to buy the house, there might still be money left over to do some renovations.
If you'd love to escape the hustle and bustle of life for a bit of privacy and relaxation, this spot would be perfect.
The house is close to other beaches, lakes, a golf course, a farmer's market, and more.
You probably won't find a house for this cheap in such a beautiful location anywhere. $469,900 wouldn't get you a condo in Toronto, let alone a house.
