This property has just been newly surveyed this spring as it was severed off a larger property.

In our story and on our maps we refer to this property as PART 1.

It enjoys 201 meters or about 660 feet of frontage on Cardinal Road just south of the Town of Matheson in Northeastern Ontario.

The depth of the property is 808 meters or about 2,650 feet.


Playfair Township is located within the boundary of the Municipality of Black River-Matheson so it is AN ORGANIZED TOWNSHIP.

Cardinal Road is a year round road that is maintained and plowed in winter by the Municipality of Black River-Matheson.


There is electrical power along the opposite side of the road if you want to hook up to the grid.

You can choose to stay off the grid if you want.

There is no law stating that you have to hook up.


The front of the property is moderately wooded with timber that is around 15 years old as that is when the mature timber was harvested.

The new growth is around 15 years old and anything that was not mature enough to harvest at that time is of course now 15 years older and taller.


What is interesting about this property is that there is about 15 acres or more of old hay fields at the rear (the north end)  of the property.

If you put in a long driveway to just where the old fields start you would have some beautiful building spots and real good privacy.

You wouldn’t be able to see a house from the road and hear minimal road noise if any.


The zoning is rural and that means that you can live here year round if you choose, you can start a farm and a home business.


The contour maps show that the property is level throughout.

There is no indication of any wet areas or swampy areas on the property.


Being involved in sales of other properties in the area in past years we know that the ground is suitable for septic fields and for wells either dug or drilled.

On a $40,000 purchase price you will need a minimum of $14,000 down payment.

The seller will hold an OPEN MORTGAGE for $26,000 at 8% interest over a term of 3 or 5 or 7 years.
