From The National Post:
Get thee to a former nunnery 90 minutes west of Saskatoon for a mere $100,000 – Think a pool in your yard is a selling feature? Try a moss-covered stone grotto, replete with a statue of the Virgin Mary. Or an in-house bakery. The latter two, along with a four-metre rooftop cross, are part of a 20,000-square-foot, red-brick convent converted into a private home. The going price is a mere $100,000, with annual property taxes of $639.74. The four-level castle is set on a vast tract of land complete with a tree-lined Brideshead Revisited carriage path up the centre of the grounds. “When the wife and I are away at work, the population is zero,” said Ron Kolenosky, the owner for the past eight years of the property 90 minutes west of Saskatoon. Before that, the convent had sat empty since the sisters left 25 years ago.
