Property Description
Property (total taxes for 2014 were $1654)

- a very private 49.5 acres of forest with a 650 foot long driveway
- the house cannot be seen from Paint Lake Road, even though it is located on higher ground than the road, and neighbours cannot be seen from the house
- this property is located off Hwy 117 between Baysville and Dorset
- 15 – 20 minutes east of Baysville, 10 – 15 minutes west of Dorset
- this bungalow was built in 1986 and has had one owner
- moose visit and graze in a small marshy area where the seasonal plants they love to eat grow – this area is visible from a large picture window in the living room
- has a small, seasonal stream
- the house is surrounded by natural, undeveloped forest area
- relax, work at projects or create art on the screened, roofed deck, protected from weather and insects

Building Systems

- the primary source of heat is a wood stove making this home a suitable retrofit for off-grid living
- the brick chimney, featured in the kitchen and living room, has three flues; one is active and two are dormant
- the active flue is newly lined and services the ‘heating’ Napoleon wood stove (2015) in the living room
- one dormant flue was used to service a ‘cooking’ woodstove in the kitchen
- the remaining dormant flue was used to service a basement workshop wood stove
- an outdoor, roofed ~ 5’ X 24’ firewood crib has open sides for drying
- electric baseboard heaters give the owner flexibility to be away for short periods of time during the winter without having to drain plumbing
- the metal roof is about 7 years old, it has only needed to be shoveled once (2014’s extreme winter), normally the snow load slides off during winter thaws protecting the house from structural damage
- a 200 foot drilled well (pump located at 180 feet) provides excellent water quality, expensive drilled wells like this one provide superior water quality and well safety compared to shallower dug wells
- 200 amp electrical service
- the concrete block foundation has good, straight lines
- the basement walk out/up is enclosed with a large enough doorway to bring snow mobiles in for service
- electric washing machine and dryer included
