Every once in a while, a cheap house for sale in Ontario comes along that seems too good to be true. Go ahead and pinch yourself, though, because this place is real. Located in Haliburton County, this beautifully renovated historic home is a painter's paradise.
This house doubles as an art gallery and studio, steps from downtown Minden, Ontario.
Downstairs, you'll find spacious rooms with grey plank floors and natural light.
Colourful paintings adorn the walls, which give you ideas about how to brighten up the space with artwork.
Upstairs is an "upscale pied-terre" apartment, complete with a kitchen and renovated bathroom.
The home also has a new enclosed porch and backyard, with steps that take you down to a separate seating area.
If art is your calling, this home could be the perfect place to explore your passion and hang your work up on display.
What's truly remarkable about this listing is the price. The home is listed at $299,000, cheaper than new bachelor condos in downtown Toronto.
Considering the fact that you now need to earn $135,000 per year to be considered middle class in Toronto, perhaps a simpler life in the Ontario countryside is in your future.
