    I know there’s more to Canada than just Nova Scotia, eventually I’ll spread out beyond. 🙂

    This is one steep flight of attic stairs! Love the house overall.

    I’ve fallen in love with Canada since watching Anne with an E on Netflix. Are Americans allowed to own property in Canada? Not sure if this is the forum for this, but was wondering what the policies are.

      Have you watched the 1985 Anne of Green Gables movie? It is very different from the Netflix show, but you may like it. I will admit I am not a fan of Anne with an E, but I think it is because it strays from the source material a bit too far for my tastes and because the 1985 movie has such a special place in my heart. I’m probably in the minority.

      I absolutely think of Anne every time Kelly posts a home in Canada and even made a puffed sleeves comment on one not long ago. I don’t think Kelly minds us giving Miss Shirley a little love at all.

      Americans can own property in Canada. How often you can stay in that home is dependent on your residency status. There are some extremely useful sources online on how to become a Permanent Resident and/or a Canadian citizen. We discussed it in the comments of one of the more recent Nova Scotia homes, as well. (I would link it for you, but I want you to search through and enjoy the last few Canadian posts. :P)

      My family and I have discussed moving (years from now) to Nova Scotia in depth. We discussed it again this weekend, actually. I am completely with you on this one.

        I’m a huge AoGG fan! I didn’t care for the Netflix one although loved the actress that plays Marilla but the 1985 version is my favorite series ever. I still have a problem getting lost in my imagination, Anne is my literary bosom friend. Lol

        • Zann says: 511 comments

          I agree with all of that. The actress who played Marilla was fantastic. Matthew wasn’t soooo bad, but how does one compete with Richard Farnsworth, really?

          I’ve already made it known that if we do move to Canada, my family will have to be known as the poor people related to the crazy American who named her new Canadian house Green Gables. I guess I could call it that secretly, in my heart of hearts as Anne would say. Not put up a big honking sign out front or anything.

      Joanne0911, There are numerous tax laws that apply for owning property in another country, especially Canada. Please check with an excellent accountant familiar with tax laws in the USA, as well as internationally. With that said, yes, you can own property in Canada and be a resident / national of the USA. Some provinces charge a special tax for Americans to own property in their province. British Columbia is just such a province. If you intend to use it as an AirBnB then you will need to research the viability, as sometimes the neighbors are not pleased with the coming n goings every fews days and high traffic of short term rentals. This is why some provinces attach certain restrictions. If you intend to live at the property, be sure to check with US Immigration to see if there’s any statutes regarding length of tenure in another country. Then check with the Canadian Consulate to see if Canada has any restrictions in length of stay – visa – permits (work or otherwise). It will take some leg work on your part but once you have dotted all the “I’s” and crossed all the “T’s”, then you can make an informed decision regarding buying a property in The Great White North – Canada!! If you do move there, you will love the people, culture and the really cool foods.

    Keep them coming! Preferably near the Michigan border. I feel I may need to move my family to Canada soon. 🙂

    I’m also a Canadian reader, from Ontario. I love looking at all the old houses and am blown away at some of the awesome prices in the U.S. I live in an 1855 brick farmhouse so I’m always watching this page for ideas. Keep up the great work Kelly!

    Ooooh lovely! The usual paint/flooring updates to make it perfect, but no big deal. What a steal for that amazing land, too!

    I love the detail pictures, but wish we could have a larger view of some of the spaces – I’d love to see how the details all work together! The arched hallway is wonderful.

    This is a wonderful way to start my day. Such a beautiful home. Needs a little bit of work but over all, I’d move in a heartbeat if I could.

    Agent says “needs work”, where? Looks great to me.

    I’m American, but husband has the ability to become Canadian easily, and we have some of his family already there, Niagara Falls, so we like to go at least once every 12 to 18 months. Love Canada! Anywho, getting him to seriously consider a move is difficult, but with the postings of these gorgeous Victorian homes, he has been more receptive!

    seriously, one can’t just move to Canada, can one? My brother tried, and after living in Vancouver for 10 years, was not able to stay.

    Another Canadian here, in Ontario! If you’re looking for older properties check out the Niagara region and Eastern Ontario along Lake Ontario. Oldest part of “Upper Canada”
