So how, after 22 days on the market, hasn’t this lovely home in Freelton, Ontario been purchased yet?
While by no means a mansion, the fully winterized cottage-style home offers 1,300 square feet of living space – far more than you’d get for a Toronto condo for the same price, though. you could find something at that price point at all.
