This home for sale might look like it's straight off on an autumn postcard, but you can actually find it right here in Ontario. The historic house is tucked away amidst the trees, and it's on the market for $419,000.
Located in Minden, the bright red bungalow once served as the 1881 Miner's Bay School House. Now, it has been transformed into a cozy home with a gorgeous yard.

The house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The homey interior still has lots of its originally charm, with hardwood floors and windows gazing out at the peaceful surroundings. There's a deck out back where you can sit and breathe in the fresh country air.
