This property comes with 2,570 feet of road frontage along Grindstone Road.
The road is maintained throughout the winter months from Highway 101 to Otter Road.
Otter Road is approximately 2.5km North of the subject property
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
The property enjoys 783 meters (2,570 feet) more or less of frontage along the East side of Grindstone Road and has a depth of 408 meters (1,340 feet).
The Northwest section of this property was used as a hobby farm many years ago. There hasn’t been much use on it for a while.
The current owner has owned the property since 1995 and has never harvested the trees. They mentioned that they were mature when they purchased the property as well.
If you harvest a large section of trees, put in some hard work and cultivate the fields, you will then have some nice productive fields located in THE GREAT CLAY BELT to grow on.
The property is quite level throughout and reviewing the contour maps and the aerial photos, there doesn’t appear to be any low spots or swampy areas.
THE GREAT CLAY BELT
The Clay Belt is a vast tract of fertile soil stretching between the Cochrane District in Ontario, and Abitibi County in Quebec, covering 180,000 square kilometres (69,000 sq mi) in total, with 120,000 square kilometres (46,000 sq mi) of that in Ontario.
The Clay Belt is the result of the draining of the Glacial Lake Ojibway around 8,200 BP, whose lakebed sediment forms the modern landform.
The Clay Belt is surrounded by the Canadian Shield, forming an island of "southern flatlands" in the midst of the hilly and rocky surroundings.

West to Timmins, which is only a 45 minute drive.
