WHERE IS THIS PROPERTY?
We offer 316 acres in Lamarche Township.
Lamarche Township is an ORGANIZED TOWNSHIP that lies within the boundary of the Municipality of the Town of Cochrane in Northeastern Ontario.
The property fronts on the west side of Hanna Road and is only about 6.4 kilometers or 4 miles south of the Town of Cochrane and only about 0.8 kilometers or ½ mile east of Highway 11.
HUGE ROAD FRONTAGE
The property enjoys a HUGE ONE MILE or 1.6 KILOMETERS of road frontage on Hanna Road.
Properties with this kind of road frontage are almost unheard of today!
Hanna Road is a gravel topped YEAR ROUND ROAD that is maintained and plowed by the Municipality.
Hanna Road off Highway 11 about 6.4 kilometers or 4 miles south of the Town of Cochrane.
Electrical power is accessible along the opposite (east) side of the road and can be easily brought into the property.
THE WICKLOW RIVER
The Wicklow River flows through the property is a north/south direction.
Over 10,000 feet of the Wicklow River meanders through the property.
An average width of the river is somewhere between 35 to 45 feet.
The depth of the river varies from a couple of feet to about 6 feet deep.
The water in the river is tea stained and is an ideal habitat for northern pike and the odd walleye and perch.
The Wicklow River drains into the Frederickhouse River to the west,
The creeks that flow into the Wicklow River originate from the very close by lakes like Tricketts Lake, Big Jerrerson Lake, Jefferson Lake, Portelance Lake and Poole Lake which is a couple of minutes walk east of this fine property.
The river basically splits the property into two areas.
That portion of the property west of the Wicklow River still has good narketable timber that has not been harvested.
This parcel of land is about 130 acres in size,
The east portion of the property that is between the river and Hanna Road river is about 186 acres in size and the mature stands of timber were harvested about 2013, so about 9 years ago.
If you look at the aerial photos that we provide you will see that there were some considerable areas of old hay fields that are still visible today even though some of those areas have started to grow in.
The ZONING on the entire property is RURAL ZONE.

What a wonderful opportunity to start your own hobby farm or even farm on a full time basis on the entire property or sell smaller properties as hobby farm opportunities.
The old hay fields are ideal to areas to open up and start gardening.
Plenty of room to have some animals.
If you are serious about farming then you could certainly clear the areas that had the timber harvested and start removing stumps so that you could have a large area (over 180 acres) to grow cash crops and corn or even go back to hay.
There are some very nice locations on the property to build your home on or build your farm buildings on.

A review of the Town of Cochrane Official Plan and Zoning By-Law shows that since this property fronts on a municipally maintained road then the property can be severed into smaller parcels.
Good to know this as a new owner may want to sever 1 or more parcels and recoup a good portion of the property acquisition cost and still retain a large property.
