Do traditional homes bore you? Are you looking for something more unique with a rich history behind it, perhaps? Of course, you are, you classy person, and here are a few listings you've been dying to scroll through.

According to a report by Strata, an online real estate company, five stunning hard lofts under $750,000 are hiding within the city's ever-depressing real estate market, and they could be yours.

Wait, what the heck is a hard loft? A hard loft is created when old buildings are repurposed into living spaces. As you can imagine, it leads to some pretty unique, even historical, opportunities for first-time home buyers.

The first unit, $679,000, located at 160 Baldwin St., Unit 202 in Toronto, offers its future owners a chance to live in an old 1920s school house that overlooks Kensington Market. That's a flex, teach.
