fsbo for sale by owner

9-year old, 2-storey, 3-bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom 1,986 Ft house on 144.6 acres located close to
HWY 7, halfway between Toronto and Ottawa.
There is also a charming century farmhouse currently serving as a workshop and a storage facility. It can be turned (with some TLC) into a secondary dwelling.
A new 2-car detached garage is large enough for pick-up trucks. Many parking spaces.
High-speed internet.
Land is zoned Marginal Agricultural, letting many uses. 16.2 arable acres, presently under hay, can be certified organic, the balance is mixed bush with approximately 23 ac at far end of property zoned EP and a 5-acre slightly overgrown pasture. There is an old dug well for cattle there, the very best place for a spring pond if needed.
Cedar bush is ready for logging, just waiting for higher lumber prices. Maple and oak hardwood assets need a few more years to grow.
The North field has one extra use as an almost perfect private shooting range. Deer and turkey.
Life-time supply of firewood. Ash and ironwood.
The main house is heated by Napoleon wood fireplace backed-up with high-efficiency propane furnace. It has central air, bigger windows, oak floors and staircases, the old style bath tub on the paws, vaulted ceiling at the entrance and oversized covered porches at East and West sides, unfinished walk-out full basement.
Each house is on a separate well.
At the end of the yard there is a firewood shed, a fair-size chicken coop, a vegetable garden (can be extended to ¾ acre), and an old apple orchard with many trees still delivering.
2 hours to Toronto (1 hour 40 min when taking a toll), 2 hours 10 min to downtown Ottawa, 45 to Peterborough, 30 to Belleville, 20 to Campbellford, 15 to Stirling, 10 to Booster Park (lake) Beach and 5 to the river and nearest shopping in Marmora. Any travel includes driving 980 meters on a serviced municipal gravel road, the rest is asphalt.
