ONLY on a rare occasion does nature combine beauty, utility and location in one unique setting.
Just shy of a full quarter section “Fairie Hill” (our name for this very special place) has 70 productive crop acres and approx 25 acres of pasture on rolling fertile hills. Fairie Hill also has its own private magical contoured 50 acre pond/lake (close to 1/2 mile in length). Free of salts and odour causing algae.
Surrounded on the West by a dedicated naturalist's retirement property. North of this land is a Nature Preservation holding, "Ducks Unlimited". Fairie Hill fronts onto a secondary paved highway (with not enough traffic or sound to disturb this idyllic setting). North east, just across the road, one sees miles of idyllic rolling productive farmland, flanked by another undeveloped lake; making a beautiful view from the front windows.
The house along with it's invaluable outbuildings makes this property unique in every-way. The house is a bungalow, main floor is approx. 1100 sq. feet; with three bedrooms, a large kitchen, a comfortable living room, and one recently remodelled bathroom. The kitchen has a newer fridge and electric stove. A built in vacuum cleaner makes for easy cleaning.
The full sized basement is partially developed. The perimeter has been insulated and dry wall installed. In 2010 we installed, a high efficiency propane furnace, an electric hot water tank (12 year warranty), a water Pressure tank plus a washer machine and dryer where installed.
This bungalow has a large attached two car garage which comes with 2 remote controlled doors. A heated concourse, with a very useful storage area leads into a ‘mudroom’ with a wash-up sink and ‘walk- in pantry’.
'Your Link' wireless high speed internet (1.5 gigabytes per second)- a very good system!
Oh, yes and did I mention the very low property taxes!!!
Behind the house are two large Quonsets, both in good condition. The largest building (100 feet long by 40 feet wide, with a 20 foot ceiling has a cement foundation & a partial cement floor) and new metal siding. There are two large access doors, front and back, for heavy equipment access. The second Quonset is insulated and best described as a large equipment Maintenance shop with full cement floor plus a under vehicle ‘Mechanics Pit’. It's dimensions are: 50 feet long by 32 feet wide with a 18 foot ceiling. A side access door and large overhead door makes for easy access. This building is set up for heating. A wood stove will be provided, needs only be connected to existing chimney for heat.
The yard has been cleaned up of old machinery and farm debris.
Fairie Hill's land and two Quonsets can easily be rented out to provide a nice revenue stream. This productive land produces various crops: wheat, canola etc. There is a fair amount of woodland which could be used to supplement heating of both home and out buildings.
