Lt 41,75,40 Portland Street Shallow Lake, Ontario N0H 2K0



Almost 21 Acres. Amazing property -not just for its physical beauty; but, for its remarkable touch of history.This Hidden gem above the original Shallow Lake has a combination of open fields (farmed for hay) & trees cradling the boundaries. Drone pictures show fantastic views of the Noble Ranch built on the ruins of the giant Canada Cement Factory. Closed years ago.- fields still farmed. Only faint evidence of the original Butchart home in the trees and maybe a few daffodils, plus few remnants & one large two level Portland cement building - At least 3 outbuildings could have usage--another is secured and remains as a footprint for the new buyer to use in establishing presence of past buildings. For years the zoning has been Open Space and Environmentally protected, but the land has been farmed and the buildings used for storage. The property consists of three municipal roll numbers. Representatives of Grey Sauble and Georgian Bluffs have physically attended the property with input-- and expressed cooperation for future access and use. Selling as is Historically -in 1888 Shallow Lake Cement Works processed local marl & clay from the bed of the adjacent Shallow Lake. Knowledge came from Butchardt Cement Manu near Canterbury England.Marl contained lime for their manu process. Bob&Jenny Butchart's first home is overgrown.These are Butcharts who created Butcharts' Gardens in their limestone quarry near Victoria BC. This unique parcel of land (with its history)---is beautiful piece of country. (id:2333)
