PROPERTY LOCATED IN BEATTY TOWNSHIP
Beatty Township is one of the townships within the boundary of the Municipality of Black River-Matheson.
Beatty Township is AN ORGANIZED TOWNSHIP.
CLOSE TO THE TOWN OF MATHESON
This property is only 7.1 kilometers or 4.4 miles northeast of the Town of Matheson, Ontario.
This is very easy access to the property and you can certainly drive right to your property in a car if you wished.
ENJOY YEAR ROUND ROAD ACCESS
COPPER ROAD is a Township maintained road that is OPEN YEAR ROUND.
The Township maintains the road and plows it in winter.
ELECTRICAL POWER AVAILABLE
Electrical power is available as the power line runs on along the north side of Copper Road.
This property fronts on the north side of Copper Road so it is very easy to bring the electrical power into the property at whatever building site you choose on your property.
You have the choice of being OFF THE GRID
You cannot be forced to be on the grid if you don’t want to.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
The property enjoys 200.98 meters (659.38 feet) more or less of frontage along the north side of Copper Road and has a depth of 790.41 meters (2,593.06 feet) on the west line of the property and a depth of 790.57 meters (2,593.73 feet) on the east line of the property .
This is land that used to be farmed and it has been lying fallow for a few years, with much of it grown back into forest or “tag alders”.
There are old fields throughout the property that have started to be grown in with scrub brush.
The old field is about 9.6 ACRES IN SIZE.
With patience and some hard work the scrub brush can be removed and you would have a some nice productive fields.
The property is quite level throughout and reviewing the contour maps and the aerial photos there don’t appear to be any low spots or swampy areas.
A small seasonal creek flows through the property in a northerly direction and the local beavers have created a couple of small beaver ponds that average from ½ to about ¾ acre in size.
Above the pods is a low area of about 6 acres in size and in the wet times of the year this area can get a little marshy.
However, the local moose seem to like this low area and they like to wander around it so if you are a hunter and have patience and the skills then perhaps you may bag yourself some very fine wild meat.
The ponds also attract the geese and ducks so again, if you are a hunter then you can hunt for waterfowl on your own property when in season.
IF YOU LIKE TO MAKE THINGS GROW THEN….
THIS WOULD MAKE A NICE HOBBY FARM FOR SOMEONE.
There are existing farms and farmland across from this property and adjacent to the east side of this property so it is quite feasible to convert most of this 40 acres back into farmland.
We believe that Black River-Matheson (BRM) has the potential to develop farming into becoming a huge contributor to The local economy.
We encourage new, young farmers to take up residence in BRM.
This is good land, it just needs good people to work it.
