Crosstown condos and townhomes . Buy a castle in France. According to a report released last week by the Greater Toronto Regional Real Estate Bureau (TRREB).
In July this year, the average price of various types of houses in the GTA area reached $1B062. The average price of a semi-detached house in the city of Toronto or area 416 was 1.2 million, while the average price of a detached house in area 905 was 1.34 million.
While many people are keen to spend hundreds of thousands more on GTA to rob offer, some people look overseas. As a result, a woman in Toronto bought a semi-detached house in Toronto for a little more than 1.2 million Canadian dollars, that is, a little more than C $1.25 million, to buy a whole castle in France.
Although the castle is old, it covers an area of 70 acres, with its own forest and long driveway to the town. What’s even better is that it’s not remote at all, and it’s easy to get to the local market, whether on foot or by bike. It is only a 10-minute drive from the hot spring of La Roche-Posay, a famous French skin care product.
The castle itself is located in Saint-Pierre-de-Maill é, a quaint town of less than 1,000 people in western France, a short drive from the provincial capital Poitiers and an hour and a half from Paris by high-speed rail.
The geographical location of this property is not bad, and the property itself is not small. From the outside, the castle itself is magnificent, with beige stone walls and a tower on one side.
The castle has a floor area of 4500 square feet, 11 bedrooms and 12-foot ceilings. Marble fireplace, arched windows, crown shape, oak floor.
Don’t think that there is only one castle in this property. In fact, there are many ancillary buildings, which are older than castles and are used for accommodation, wine-making, stables and storage.
Among them, the happiest thing for the new owner is that there is even a special room for guarding the property. The house in pretty good condition was rented to an Englishman who lived there with his German short-haired dog.
Obviously, this is tantamount to an extra gift for the old landlord, because it not only provides some rental income, but also allows the tenant to take care of her property.
