What $275,000 buys across Canada, from 1.5 acres to a Vancouver apartment

1. A charming home with 1.5 acres of manicured garden in a small town along the coast of Newfoundland.

7-9 Cross Road, Newfoundland Curl up with your favourite read in the reading nook on the home's second floor.

Address: 7-9 Cross Road
Where: Bay Roberts, Newfoundland & Labrador Price: $279,900 Specs: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms Every great old period house should come standard with estate grounds, a grand staircase and healthy dose of crumbling charm (but not so much as to be daunting). This piece of early 1900s Newfoundland history delivers on all fronts (an acre and a half of manicured lawns, shrubs and trees with Buckingham Palace provenance to boot), but also includes four fireplaces with imported brick from New York — no easy feat in the days before Amazon overnight delivery.

2. A country bungalow with spectacular views in Eastern Ontario.

Ontario1 This home sits on a beautiful treed lot.

Address: 288 10th Concession Road
Where: Rideau Lakes, Ontario Price: $275,000 Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bath With Toronto’s real estate market in a full-on frenzy, maybe it’s time to head for the hills. Sit on your porch and look out over your peaceful plot of land with north-easterly views of open fields and Foley Mountain. There’s in-floor radiant heat to keep warm come winter—perfect for hunkering down and easing into your new telecommute.

3. A garden-level apartment unit in the heart of Vancouver.

What $275,000 buys across Canada, from 1.5 acres to a Vancouver apartment This unit boasts the best of both worlds — it's located on a quiet, tree-lined street but close to Granville shops and public transit.

Address: #114, 1149 W 11th Ave.
Where: Vancouver, B.C. Price: $285,000 Specs: 1 bed, 1 bath In central Vancouver, you can live in a circa-1955 building (hardwood, solid construction) in a convenient location on a pretty tree-lined street. The catch? You need to lay down 35% of the purchase price, it’s a co-op, they don’t allow pets and it’s an adult-only building. But, rentals are permitted after two years (pending board approval), which means it could be the perfect Airbnb pied-à-terre.
