Dreaming of leaving the city? Three idyllic farms for sale, starting at $349,000

1. Newly remodelled five-bedroom river-frontage hobby farm in southern B.C.

Kettle Valley Rd What looks like a heritage home outside is completely remodelled inside, including a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops.

Address: 3485 Kettle Valley Road
Where: Rock Creek/Bridesville, B.C. Price: $699,000 Specs: 5 beds, 3 baths Rockcreek has come a long way from its first iteration as a settlement during the heyday of the Gold Rush. This riverfront outpost, prettily perched on just over nine acres, may recall the area’s historic roots, but the grit’s all gone in favour of modern convenience: five bedrooms, gourmet kitchen with granite counters and expansive back deck (we’re looking at you, porch rocker).

2. 72 acres of picturesque farm land on the shores of Lake Huron in Ontario.

Bruce Road With 50 acres of farmable land, this 1890s farmhouse features beautiful upgrades like cherry and walnut custom cabinets.

Address: 2207 Bruce Road 20
Where: Municipality of Kincardine, Ontario Price: $574,900 Specs: 3 beds, 1 bath A tributary of Willow Creek runs through this 72 acres (50 of which are suitable for farming). Watch trout and bass jump in the pond while the beavers get industrious; a bridge leads to the backfields and walking trails. The historic house, dating from 1891, features 21st-century upgrades including local cherry and walnut custom cabinetry, new windows and updated wiring and plumbing.

3. Equestrian-ready seaside estate in Nova Scotia.

Whitehead This gorgeous, seaside two-home estate has endless possibilities, from BnB to horse stables.

Address: 306/308 Whitehead Road
Where: Whitehead, Nova Scotia Price: $349,000 Specs: 5 beds, 2 bath Pastoral farm, equestrian estate or waterfront pad — how does one choose? No need to with this five-acre seaside gem that includes two houses, barn, four outbuildings, paddocks and 300 feet of beach on the east coast of Canada. Live in the custom chalet with wood spiral staircase, then Airbnb the charming 1½ storey, 3-bedroom charmer out.
