Can you think of a better way to defy the low Canadian temperatures than by shimmying down to your own indoor pool and posting about it for your friends to see on their frozen iPhone screens?
The properties below were selected from each Canadian province and feature some really great indoor pools; plus, not all of them are luxury homes. Their price ranges between well over $5,000,000 CAD and under $1,000,000 CAD which might suggest that indoor swimming pools are no longer as much of a luxury staple as they were deemed a few decades ago.
With winter in full swing, sit back, relax, and start concocting plans to get the funds necessary for the acquisition of one of these properties.
