For the last 8 years the property has been built and run as a organic hobby farm. 16 acres of pasture has been fenced, and grazed by cattle. Further 3 acres is unfenced and used as a hay field. The remainder of the property is a woodlot with a combination of hardwoods and softwoods. Numerous fruit trees and berry bushes (blueberries, raspberries, and black currants) have been planted. The soil is very fertile and the current owners have grown all their fruits and vegetables, in addition to raising livestock. The property is bordered to the north by a lovely meandering creek (Smelt Creek), and to the west by Confederation Trail. The house is 896 square feet, oriented due south and is passively heated by the sun. The insulated concrete slab retains heat in winter and the roof overhangs keep the house cool in summer. The house essentially has two exterior walls, separated by a 1/4 inch air gap. This provides for an extremely energy efficient home. In addition, the heating is augmented by a small wood stove. Typically, a cord and a half of firewood is used to heat the home for an entire year. The woodlot on the property can more than provide firewood for home heating. Approx 2 cord of firewood is stored in the barn and included in the sale. The upstairs of the shop has two guest bedrooms and roughed in plumbing for a bathroom. The downstairs is currently used as a workshop but could be developed into living space, as it has been pre-wired for a kitchen and the building is fully insulated.
