The Lawson House is now on the market for a second time, after a $100,000 price reduction. Once in a while there comes along a piece of real estate that seems to good to be true.

Today, that property comes from Nova Scotia, where a stunning eight-bedroom Victorian house, complete with a pool, two dishwashers, and a wine cellar has been listed for the same price as some tiny, one-bedroom condos in Canada's larger cities.

Located in the town of Windsor, the gateway to the scenic Annapolis Valley, the 5,100 sq.-ft. home is attracting a huge amount of attention from potential buyers as far away as Dubai, realtor Johnathon Benedict told HuffPost Canada.

Police release video, seek man who punched store clerk

"This is truly an amazing property," Benedict said in a phone interview, adding it's his second go at selling the 120-year-old home — named Lawson House — after a significant price reduction.

Benedict listed the home in 2017 at a half-million dollar price point.

But it failed to generate much interest, and never sold, despite recent renovations and boasting a self-contained in-law suite with a full kitchen.

Benedict convinced the owner that shaving $100,000 off the asking price would drum up potential buyers — and he wasn't wrong.

"The response has been great," he said, adding that a Facebook post about the property has really helped get the word out.

That post has been shared widely since it was posted Tuesday, with many commenters skeptical about the $395,000 asking price.

Windsor pilot in fatal Tennessee crash wrote stalker-like letters to Taylor Swift

  Windsor pilot in fatal Tennessee crash wrote stalker-like letters to Taylor Swift Internal records from the National Transportation Safety Board show the drunk Canadian pilot who died in 2013 while landing a plane had written multiple letters to Taylor Swift that were stalker-like. Internal records kept at the National Transportation Safety Board show 45-year-old Michael Callan had a 2012 mental health evaluation in which the evaluator said Callan's letters to Swift "have the flavour of stalking.

"This absolutely can NOT be true...not even in NS!" wrote Maruska Claygal. "The realtor must've forgotten to place an extra digit in front of the $395,000 price tag."

It's a reaction we've seen before. In 2017, another Annapolis Valley mansion attracted worldwide attention when it was listed for just under $435,000.

Benedict says the property offers a little something for everyone — original hardwood floors run though most of the home, there's a basketball court, and custom cabinetry gives ample storage.

"I think, however, that my favourite part of the house is the entryway. It has so much beautiful woodwork and gorgeous wood floors."

And while those familiar with Windsor might be wary of the small town's sleepy reputation, Benedict (who has called Windsor home his entire life) said he's noticed some revitalization in the area lately.

A man arrested in the U.S. after being accused of raping and killing a Windsor, Ont., woman will soon be brought to Canada to face charges in her death. Court documents show Jitesh Bhogal, 27, did not challenge a request for his extradition during a hearing in the U.S. last week. Bhogal was taken into custody in Washington State in August, a little more than two months after 31-year-old Autumn Taggart was found dead in her bedroom. Court documents allege Taggart died after someone broke into her apartment in the middle of the night on June 10.
