Great hunting property
A possible good homestead property
Creek and ponds
Off the grid
This could be that prime hunting property that you always wanted to0 own or it could be that out-of-the-way homestead property that will give you a new start in life.
A property where you can get away from the everyday stress of city life and the noise and pollution that will shorten your life.
A place where you can breathe pure clean air.
A place where you can be totally off the grid and where you can live naturally.
This property and location isn’t for everyone.
It will take a hardy person(s) who want the experience of the pioneer life to live here.
This unique property opportunity is located in GARRISON TOWNSHIP which is east of The Town Of Matheson in Northeastern Ontario.
Garrison Township is AN UNORGANIZED TOWNSHIP
We know that in the UNORGANIZED TOWNSHIP there is NO OFFICIAL PLAN so that means that there is NO ZONING so you can build whatever you want, any size you want and NO BUILDING PERMIT is required.
320.07 ACRES OF LAND
This property is comprised of 10 mining claims that are owned by two owners that are related.
5 of the claims total 181.11 acres and are owned by a numbered company.
Another 5 claims total 138.96 acres and are owned in the owner’s personal name.
Both properties TOTAL 320.07 ACRES
SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 101
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
We had a good discussion with the owners forester and he advised us the following.
The current owners harvested the mature trees in 2015 and in 2016.
They only harvested the mature timber.
Anything with a six inch butt was left standing.
They also left trees standing along the creeks and ponds.
Since the trees were reserved to the Crown, the owner had to replant trees throughout the property.
They replanted just over 30,000 Jack Pines and Spruce Trees.
The forester also stated that there is a natural spring that flows year round at the south end of the property.
The southwest section of the property has a very nice hill that is at least 43 meters or about 141 feet higher that the rest of the property.
This would make an ideal location for a nice hunt cabin so you can look down and see the moose.
The easterly side of the property has a gradual rise of about 20 meters or about 65 feet.
There are also many level sections of the property.
An offshoot creek of the large Garrison Creek flows through this property and the local beavers have created some beaver ponds.
We know that there are Brook Trout in Garrison Creek so it would stand to reason that there should be Brook Trout in this offset creek.
OFF THE GRID
There are no services on or to this property.
You will be totally off the grid.
Your power sources will have to ne SOLAR, WIND, GENERATOR, PROPANE, or a combination of all three.
Your heat source will most likely be a wood stove or an outdoor wood furnace.
Some people think that they were off-grid if they switched their cell phone off for a day or two.
The greatest appeal of off-grid living is that it allows you to practice a form of voluntary simplicity based in frugality, sustainability, self-sufficiency and resilience.
There is an awareness today that global society has spun out of control and a lot of people want to go to a simpler and less stressful form of life.
You can make voluntary choices, such as to buy less, consume sustainably and ethically, eat more local and natural foods, reduce clutter, recycle and re-use, practice creativity, you use renewable energy resources, you prefer smaller-scale forms of living, and you develop skills based on self-reliance.
Yes, you will want to go off grid.
