Have you ever wanted to live next to one of Canada’s historic landmarks? If so, you’re in luck! Neighbouring the iconic Peggy’s Cove lighthouse sits a three-bedroom and one-bathroom home ready to be snatched up.
Hitting the market early last week, this charming fixer-upper gives the unique opportunity to live in a small seaside community next to one of the East Coast’s most iconic tourist attractions.
If you’ve checked out the going rate for detached homes in Vancouver, B.C, you know how extremely expensive it can get – especially living by the ocean. Surprisingly enough, this home is listed at $1.2M. Seems like a steal, right? Well, there’s a catch.

The home is a fixer-upper and by no stretch an easy one. Based on the listing photos, the property looks like it’s seen better days.
Peeling paint, damaged flooring and broken fixtures are just a few of the unique qualities of this property. On the other hand, those views of the Atlantic Ocean are priceless.
