Therefore, this portion of Nansen Township is AN ORGANIZED TOWNSHIP.
YEAR ROUND ROAD ACCESS
This property has 874.76 feet of frontage on St. Jean Road south of the Town of Moonbeam.
St.Jean Road is a Municipally maintained road that is open and accessible year round.
You won’t have to worry about being able to get to your property at any time during the year.
Imagine a beautiful wood frame, open concept spacious cabin with about 590 square feet of living space.
The cabin was built as a hunting cabin that would be used in the NON-WINTER MONTHS.
The cabin is not insulated.
If you wanted to use the cabin in winter then you would want to insulate the walls, ceiling and under the floor.
The exterior is clad in wood siding.
Over the years the wood siding has been allowed to age and you can keep it looking that way or you can pressure wash it and re-stain it and make it look like new.
The cabin has a maintenance free metal roof.
As you can see by the interior photos the cabin is totally open space so you can add partition walls to create some rooms.
The cabin is heated with a wood fired stove.
PLEASE NOTE: It appears that the cabin or a portion of the cabin may be encroaching on the Crown Land to the immediate east.
The Crown is aware of this and has been for quite a long time and has chosen to do nothing about it.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
The property has 874.76 feet of frontage on St. Jean Road. And a depth of about 3,919.27 feet.
Relatively level, this property has a slight incline from the road to the rea of the property.
The incline is barely noticeable so everything appears level.
An old hay field of about 15 acres or so is at the front portion of the property.
This would be ideal to bale the hay for horses or cows or sheep and it also gives you a cleared area to choose from where to make your private or market garden.
The cabin was constructed on the furthest east side of the old hayfield so that you are looking west.
It’s not unusual to see moose sometimes bedding down in the old hay field.
The rest of the property is fairly well wooded with trees that average 30 to 60 feet high.
The owners have spread wildflower seed everywhere and it really is quite a beautiful place especially when the flowers are in bloom.
The wildlife is mindblowing and you can't get better fishing than up here!
Another feature to this property is the foraging.
If you like picking mushrooms then you will love it here.
Just recently the owners just picked 15 lbs of lobster mushrooms..
There are king boletes, slippery Jack's, chantarelles and other types if you know what to pick.
The electrical power poles are along St. Jean Road on the north side of the road.
You have the option of hooking up to the grid or staying off the grid.
There is no septic field in place on the property so if you wanted an indoor toilet then you will require a septic field.
Today, a lot of people will install a composting toilet which costs a lot less.
If you like to rough it out then you can also build an outhouse.
You can either have a dug well or a drilled well.
Local neighbours have one or the other

About 520 feet of Marten Creek flows through the northeast corner of the property.
The creek ranges in width from about 12 feet to about 21 feet wide.
Average depth of the creek is from 1 foot to almost 4 feet so it is a seasonal creek that would flow in the non-winter months.
The creek originates from LAC CHARETTE which is about 5 kilometers to the northwest of this property.
According to the MNR Fish-On-Line website Lac Charette has Walley, Perch, Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass.
This lake is also connected to a series of lakes like Aurel Lake, Kluck Lake and some other unnamed lakes.
The property to the immediate east of this property is about a 75 acre parcel of CROWN LAND.
Adjoining this property to the immediate south is a few thousand acres of CROWN LANDS.
WHAT CAN YOU DO IN THIS AREA?
In the Moonbeam area, two worlds live side by side: the rural life and the northern forest with its lakes and rivers.
This reality gives a particular quality to life which is envied by many.
Recreational activities change with the seasons.
Summer calls for swimming, fishing and wild berry picking;
Autumn leads families into the woods for small and large game hunting;
Winter weekends are spent ice-fishing, snowmobile riding, cross country skiing and down hill skiing.
LIKE TO HUNT?
You have 75 acres PLUS the adjoining 75 acres of Crown lands to the immediate east AND a few thousand acres of Crown land adjoining to the immediate south of this property.
That is plenty of land to hunt on and you really wouldn’t be in much hunting competition.
Apparently the big game hunting is good and the small game hunting is good as well.
This property is located in WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT UNIT (WMU) 30.
