Stars that are never seen in the city are clearly visible from our hilltop home. Sunsets are spectacular!! - No hunting is allowed in this Sanctuary as Deer, raccoons, Wild Turkeys,Rabbits and all kinds of birds frequent our feeders. This is also an Income property as there are 40 workable acres, seeded down to Hay at the moment. If you have a hankering to be a Farmer, you can do it yourself or rent the land out. If you choose to make Hay, depending on the weather, the land should produce approximately 3000 to 4000 small square bales of hay in 2 cuttings. Standing hay sells between 90 cents to 1.20 cents per small bale, depending on quality. Baled Hay sells for between $4.00 to $4.75 PER small square bale in this area in 2016 BECAUSE OF THE DROUGHT, if you choose to do it yourself. 40 acres in 2015 were fertilized, seeded twice and are rented, with a 3 year Lease expiring in 2019. The tenant in question maintains the land well. We will be increasing the rent in 2017 to $2400.00/year. Renting the land to a bona fide Farmer qualifies for the Farm Tax Rebate. Our 2 story home contains: 2 carpeted bedrooms or 1 bedroom and office on the 2nd floor with a 4 piece bathroom, PLUS the Master Bedroom on the Main Floor with an ensuite 4 piece Bathroom. The house has been designed to accommodate a 4th bedroom on the 2nd floor above the Living Room. It is a bright Open Concept Home with extra large windows, high ceilings and a Napoleon High Country wood-burning fireplace in the Living/Dining Room with wide-plank Pine floors. The Napoleon fireplace can heat the whole home and there are lots of dead trees on the property for firewood. A 2-piece Powder Room is located in the hallway on the way to the 2 car garage. The staircase and hallways are extra wide to give the feeling of spaciousness and to accommodate the movement of furniture. The High, Bright and Dry 1000 square foot Basement with Laundry Room, extra large windows and a roughed-in 4 piece bathroom. When finished, this space could be rented for approximately $1200.00/month. We have Air Conditioning, Wireless Hi-Speed Internet, Satellite TV, Central Vacuum (roughed-in), Alarm System and an Ultra Violet Water Purification System. We went to the extra expense when building to deliberately bury the Hydro and Telephone Cables to avoid unsightly wooden poles. The Home is heated by Propane and Wood Fireplace. Our Home was built by one of Belleville's best known builders. Belleville is growing, a new airport rumoured to be on the drawing board to the EAST of Toronto, Highway 407 is being extended TO THE EAST, Highway # 62 has been widened, massive expansion of the Trenton Air Force Base AND talk of a new University here - all positive factors for our area. If you value peace, privacy and value, you owe it to yourself to look at this property. It has always been a NON-SMOKING HOME. This is a Home for those who love the outdoors and country life and don't want granite counter tops and Italian marble floors. There is less aircraft noise in the HILLS OF THURLOW compared to Prince Edward County and in most cases we have far better weather in summer and winter - AND - NO WIND MILL FARMS!!!!!
