For 1,000,000 loonies you can purchase this cute character home in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. Not exactly the price one would expect to pay for a home such as this. Cute, yes. Charming, yes. Affordable, absolutely not. This charming starter home is reserved for the wealthy investors that don’t even call Vancouver home. There are four similar homes lining this section of the street, each from the same era and all with a charming white picket fence.
