When in search of a new place to call home, people usually have a list of features in mind which they’d like the property to possess in order for it to merit consideration. Whilst some look for appealing interior elements, like a nice kitchen or a cozy fireplace, others might wish for a place where they can pursue their hobbies.
Individuals who love tinkering with their cars, or who actively take part in maintaining their property—doing continuous repairs and upgrades themselves—will definitely find a home workshop useful. Just imagine having an entire atelier for yourself, filled with all your favourite tools, boasting plenty of room for you to carry out all your projects and also having an organized space in which to store and use all your equipment. If you’re curious to see a few homes offering generous workshops, then you’ll be happy to find that we’ve already done a bit of research for you.
Here are 5 nice examples of properties for sale in Canada boasting practical workshops:
#1 2513 16 Avenue S, Lethbridge, Alberta, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, $264,900
First on our list is this affordable 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom home, located in the southern part of Alberta, in the Lethbridge real estate market. The bungalow offers a lot for the money, has been well cared for by its previous owners and has seen plenty of upgrades in recent years. One of the property’s definite highlights is the spacious workshop located adjacent to the one-car garage. Although it might not look like so much from the photo, we are positive that the bright and airy space has what it takes to be turned into the atelier of your dreams.
#2 24202 Town Line Road, Chatham-Kent, Ontario, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, $474,900
Next up we have this unique 3-bedroom home, situated in the Chatham-Kent real estate market of Southwestern Ontario. The 2.7-acre property by the Thames River has been family-owned for the past 150 years and is up for sale for the first time ever. It has quite a few appealing characteristics, such as a rustic main house, an oversized yard, a storage shed and an impressive 30’x80’ workshop. Whilst the spaciousness of the shop is itself very alluring, it’s the hydraulic lift, the hoist and the tire changer that might appeal most to car enthusiasts. And although it might look a bit messy at the moment, don’t forget that anyone who purchases the property can remodel it any way they like.
#3 27 Vath Place, Red Deer, Alberta, 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, $849,000
This gorgeous piece of Vanier Woods real estate lies in one of the most prestigious neighbourhoods of Red Deer, in Central Alberta. The stunning and elegant detached family home is equally charming on the inside, boasting generous, bright rooms, high-end features and new appliances. Besides the many attractive traits of the home—including plenty of leisure options such as a wet bar, a home cinema and a hot tub—the enormous garage shouldn’t be overlooked. It is, in fact, so grand that it can easily provide enough space for all the tools you might want for an enviable and well-functioning workshop.
#4 75 Petersen Road, Campbell River, British Columbia, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, $917,000
Next on our list is this superb 3.35-acre, organic-certified farm in the Campbell River real estate market, within easy reach of this Vancouver Island city’s centre. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who’d like to take their gardening skills to the next level by practicing on the property’s beautifully-maintained grounds. Those more interested in fiddling with their favourite tools can enjoy themselves endlessly in the spacious atelier located next to the main home. There is plenty of space here to strip down cars, repair tractors, or perhaps even build yourself a boat to take out on Discovery Passage!
#5 8 Cactus Coulee Place SW, Medicine Hat, Alberta, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, $1,399,000
Concluding our list is a property that stands out from the others thanks to its unique build and enviable location, part of a desirable community in the Medicine Hat real estate market of Alberta. The 5-bedroom, 6-bath home was built from massive logs, giving the house a cozy and welcoming vibe throughout. The massive construction offers over 8,000 square feet of living space, and features a huge library, an oversized kitchen and a games room. And then there’s the workshop, which is also generous in size, is currently rather neatly arranged, and very sensibly has been designed with some very large windows that ensure plenty of natural light throughout the day.
As you can see, there are some fine homes with enviable workshops currently up for sale in diverse parts of Canada.
