Unorganized Township
You do not need building permits or inspections when building on this land AT ALL - NO ZONING RESTRICTIONS.

This means if you want to go completely off the grid it makes things very easy. Alternative building friendly, earthships, cob, straw bale etc.. no permits, save money.. BUILD YOUR OWN OFF GRID COMMUNITY!

Organized portion of this road is only a few houses down so you get almost all the benefits of being in an organized township with very low land taxes (less than $150.00 a year) SO YOU GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!


- Ontario Hydro
- Mail service
- School bus p/u
- Highspeed internet and home phone (both serivces together are only $70/mth unlimited upload/download from local company)
- Year round road maintenance inc. plowing

Usually with unorganized parcels there are quite a few downfalls.
- most are inaccessible ... usually you need a boat, Argo, or quad to get to them.
- if you do find them with road access, usually they are on unmaintained road that do not get serviced or plowed.
- most are landlocked by crown land and you need to apply to the ministry to make a road through to your property.
- most parcels are too remote to accommodate hydro, phone, Internet connection, or postal service.
- although you do not need permits to build usually it is very difficult to access the parcels to even bring any building materials there.

Finding an unorganized parcel is becoming harder and harder, finding one accessible is even more difficult.

Our road is 1/2 organized so we get many of the benefits of being organized, without the restrictions.

We are 7 hours north or Toronto. The drive never seems that bad, it's pretty much straight up... take the barrie 400 north merge onto hwy 11 and our house is just off of hwy 11 on hannah rd. Very simple. (You can also head North through Bancroft of Peterborough through Haliburton)

Although you can find property with land closer to you, will will not likely find anything with this much land and freedom due to unorganized parcels only being located in the rural north... more and more townships are becoming incorporated as we speak. The freedom and opportunity will not always be here.

As I mentioned there are no building permits or restrictions you can build freely ... live self sufficiently.. Build bunkers, cabins, cottages, camps, and even other houses for family, friends, employees or even for revenue. You do not need to severe the land to have more than one dwelling on a unorganized parcel.

The layout of the main floor of the building consists of a front, rear, and side entry, a living room, a family room, dining room, full kitchen, a up-dated four piece bathroom, and a mudroom/laundry room. The second floor has five bedrooms, and a two piece washroom.

WE WILL BE SHOWING THIS PROPERTY IN EARLY SPRING, AIMING FOR A SPRING/SUMMER SALE THIS 2017. If you are interested please contact me with your contact information, and you will be called/emailed to arrange a viewing for spring.

Please keep an eye on this post for interior pictures, we are in the process of packing, cleaning, and touching up.
