12.6 Acre well-developed hobby farm with great growing land (has been and could be a registered farm again). Fenced, cross fenced, extensive gating, one tiled field draining into an irrigation pond. Gardens, orchard, berry patches, chicken coops, expansive goat pen with shed plus numerous outbuildings including a 2500 sq ft shop. Magical views of Mt. Arrowsmith and the hill across the fields and farm. The property is private; bordered on two sides by Morison Creek to the north and on the west side), Errington Road to the east, Geddes Rd. to the south and the neighbouring farm to the west. It also has the unique added benefit of split zoning, A1, and R1 - subdivision potential. I have numerous documents for review but your due diligence is required The main home is a cozy 4 bedroom plus office rancher with 2 bathrooms on a crawl. The kitchen has an open layout with an eating area and a Cooking Woodstove (and a regular stove). In the living room, there’s a fireplace Insert and a Lennox European heat pump, plus baseboard heaters throughout which the current owner says is rarely used. The porch off the kitchen is newer, pet fenced, with solar lighting. Large windows in the kitchen and the living room take advantage of the pastoral mountain views and to keep an eye on livestock. The front lawn is completely fenced for large dogs and the greenhouse on the end of the house (beside the carport) is a fig forest. Gargantuan 60 x 45 x 18 ft. high shop (or barn convert) with approximately 800 sq ft of lofted mezzanine area plus storage. It’s 2x6 construction, fully insulated, with plywood sheeting inside and out, a metal roof and has its own Hydro meter - the pictures don’t convey the enormity of this building. The property has a registered 56x12’ 2 bedroom mobile home with its own address (1835 Errington Rd). It’s in good shape with a newer heavy duty roof and gutters, covered porch, recent flooring, mudroom, and a bright sunroom with a wood patio, The pump house has dry storage, is easily accessible from the single carport, and is outfitted with pipe warmers for inclement weather. There is a dual irrigation system but only one of them is operational. There’s a ¾” system supplied by the well and a 1 ½” (?) system drawn from the pond. The ¾” system is operational but the pond system needs a pump and some repair. Irrigation goes as far as the back field with power outlets along the way. The forested area along the creek near the watering pond is enchanting and has many interesting features for nature lovers including many varieties of mushrooms, toadstools, and fungi, mosses and lichens, a few large trees, rare pink lilies and flowers plus medicinal plants etc. The trees have been providing heat for the house since the current owner has lived there. All the ingredients are here for a self-sustaining farm, hobby farm or horse property.
