When it comes to finding a unique place to call home, Canada has no shortage of unconventional options–and Hamilton is home to one near the top of the list.

Zoocasa, a real estate platform, compiled a list this week of the top five unique properties across Canada that have recently hit the market.

Ranging from repurposed churches to floating homes, these distinctive residences offer a one-of-a-kind living experience, according to Zoocasa.

And a historically significant gem in Hamilton has made it to the list along with properties in Toronto, Victoria, B.C., Tiny, Ont. and Halifax.

Built in 1894, the former Hamilton school building (shown below) was later transformed into condo units featuring exposed brick, 20-foot ceilings and even a private balcony, making for a perfect home, Zoocasa says.

With a listed price of $630,000, the one-bedroom, two-bathroom multi-level condos located at 213-200 Stinson St. boast a livable space of 1,000 square feet.

The highlight of this space is the kitchen. The original tile accents serve as a reminder of the building’s rich history, while stainless steel appliances bring a contemporary touch.

With its history, exposed brick walls, soaring ceilings and private balcony, this school-turned-condo promises a nostalgic living experience.
