House Straddles U.S. -Canada Border


If you want to live in two countries at the same time you could just buy a house that sits on the United States-Canada border. The house was built in 1782 by a merchant who wanted to sell to farmers in Vermont and Quebec. There are entrances on both sides of the border, and a small granite border marker just outside the front door. Derby, Vermont, is on one side; Stanstead, Quebec, on the other. The house comes with granite walls, 1950s decor, and a whopping 7,000 square feet of living space divided into five currently vacant apartments, and is listed for a relatively low $109,000, per Zillow. The catch is that it needs a lot of work, about $600,000 worth—and someone who doesn't mind having border security agents keeping track of your whereabouts. (Newser)
