For $1.5 million, you could get a townhouse in Toronto, or you could get this five-bedroom, three-bathroom century home in Cobourg — plus a wooden barn and stone coach house. Don’t believe us? Read on.
Originally built in 1895, this enormous farmhouse also comes with picturesque panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, a pond and tennis court, so you won’t even miss your condo amenities!

Starting in the foyer, you feel instantly welcomed into the home thanks to its warm, rustic design.
The living room is just as quaint and cozy, despite being significantly larger than most rooms you’d come across in the city.
Moving into the kitchen, there’s no forgetting you’re in a country home. This statement kitchen is perfect for whipping up homemade meals using homegrown goods.
Heading into the formal dining room, the home’s rich history comes to life thanks to the room’s stunning 12-foot ceilings, functional fireplace and grandiose chandelier.
Upstairs is where you’ll find the home’s five massive bedrooms and bathrooms.
Speaking of bathrooms, don’t you just love this adorable powder pink bathroom and its clawfoot tub?
And just check out this bedroom. The bold colours somehow seem muted amongst the home’s natural surroundings.
Of course, there is an even softer coloured room on the top floor.
If all that still doesn’t make you want to ditch the city for more space, perhaps this secondary home will do the trick. That’s right, for the same price as most two-bedroom townhomes you can get two fully detached homes less than two hours away from the city.
