This special piece of land sits in the County of Hastings founded in 1792 with a long history of farming, forestry, and mining. The Municipality of Tweed. which this property is part of, is known as the Gateway to Land of Lakes and the Bay of Quinte, where agriculture prevails and there is easy access to major transportation routes such as Highway 7 and the 401.
Ideally situated half way between Toronto and Ottawa, a half hour from Belleville, an hour to Kingston and Peterborough and 10 minutes to Tweed and Madoc! The property, originally owned by the Trudeau family was built by them, farmed and lived in for two generations. Master log builder John DeVries built the post and beam additions, the porch and screened in room and lovingly wrapped it around the existing century old original farmhouse. The property was once a well known and loved self- supportive alternative living community, shared by three families and included a bakery, school and farm gardening.
Divine intervention prevailed and many families benefited from the kindness and generosity of the wonderful owner.
All in all there are 56 spectacular acres, with the main majestic post and beam house with its enormous wrap-around porch, the smaller one and a half storey funky and simply charming house, and the adorable log cabin situated on the edge of the Canadian Shield outcropping overlooking the pond. Magnificent wildlife sightings there to behold! Then the drive shed and two barns!
All in the family!
