START YOUR OWN HOMESTEAD!
Here is your opportunity for a lifestyle to be enjoyed - the quality of life for an individual, for a couple or for a family.
Located in Idington Township which is within the Municpal boundary of the Municipality of Opasatika in beautiful Northern Ontario.
Idington Township is AN ORGANIZED TOWNSHIP.
A real nice 33 acre property with year round access.
YOU CAN DRIVE TO THIS PROPERTY IN A CAR!
The road is open year round and is maintained and plowed in winter by the township.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
There are about 18 acres in old hay fields that have started to grow in a bit but can easily be brought back to hay fields with a little work.
You can also convert some portions of the old hay fields to large garden areas.
Just imagine growing enough vegetables to last you all year!
This property has some nice areas to clear a bit and build your rural retreat.
There are some wooded areas that are forested with mostly Spruce trees and Poplar trees and some Birch trees.
It would appear that the trees are about 30-50 feet tall and may be marketable in another 5 to 10 years.
The property enjoys 266 meters or 872 feet of frontage on Lambert Road.
Lambert Road is a YEAR ROUND ROAD that is maintained and plowed in winter by the Municipality.
In fact, the snow plow turn-a-round is located just immediately south of the corner of the property along the road.
There are no buildings on this property.
Electrical power ends about 200 feet or about 60 meters immediately to the north of the northeast corner of this property just in front of the old building on the adjoining property.
So, depending on where you want to build you can be as close as about 60 meters to the last hydro pole or as far as 260 meters from the last pole.
All in all this is very close to electrical power OR you may decide to go green and stay off the grid.
We have talked to a well and septic company in the area and they state that there is plenty of water for someone to get a well drilled or dug and no problem to putting in a septic field.
In fact when a previous owner had the property subdivided that was a requirement of the severance process that the authorities had to be satisfied that there would be the ability to find adequate water and also the ability to be able to place a septic field.
Obviously they were satisfied as the severance was approved.
The property is zoned RURAL.
This allows you to farm, build a residence or a cottage, build barns and other outbuildings, live here year round or seasonally.
A few thousand acres of CROWN LAND abuts the rear of the property.
Use the Crown lands as your playground.
You just can’t build on them.
A land survey of the property was done in the middle of October 2017 and the survey bars on the corners of the property are well market with pickets and orange flagging tape.
A copy of the survey is available and we have also included a scan of the survey in our pictures section of this story.
Like to hunt?
This property is LOCATED IN WMU 23
Hunt on your property and on the thousands of acres of Crown lands to the rear of the property.
Plenty of moose and black bear in this area.
Follow the end of the unmaintained continuation of Lambert road and go small game hunting every day of the small game season.
Like to fish?
There are plenty of fishing opportunities in the area lakes and rivers whenever you find time to leave your hobby farm.
