Tiny house / cottage on the market – Northern Ontario. (Kijiji)

Positioned only 6 minutes from the town of Iroquois Falls, the tiny home is nestled in a surprising pine forest, where in accordance with the sellers, the air smells of untamed blueberries in August.

It’s the full off-gride package!

With 4 240W solar panels, a 12Volt inverter and 4 Schneider batteries, there’s no need for a generator April through October. During low sunlight months, the backup generator helps charge the batteries to power the tiny house.

Meanwhile, the heater, washer and dryer, stove, oven, and water heater are all powered by propane.

You may either purchase and relocate the tiny house on wheels or lease the land for an extra $350 per thirty days.

Beautiful craftsmanship, featuring Cedar, Cypress and Pine

The house and 21ft deck are entirely built with stamped Redwood Cedar. The house’s exterior siding is Cypress, and the picket partitions in the inside are tongue and groove pine.

Go to sleep the celebrities

In accordance with the sellers, the house comfortably sleeps five. The first loft suits a queen mattress and features two skylights. You may go to sleep to the celebrities and wake to the clouds rolling through the morning sky. Not a fan up being up with the sun? No worries, the skylights include blackout shades.

The tiny home also has a day-bed within the lounge that sleeps two and a secondary loft with a twin mattress.

Financing requires a private loan

Interestingly, despite recent initiatives encouraging residents to contemplate adding laneway and garden homes (to assist with the housing supply crises), a lot of these non-traditional homes don’t qualify for a mortgage. The vendor advises interested parties will need a private loan or money to buy this tiny home.

Set-up for year-round living in Northern Ontario

The tiny home has been insulated from top to bottom, and the sellers have been living in it full-time for the last five years. As well as, the predominant water line has a heat-line and heat-trace lines outside the predominant water line and the septic pipe as a backup. The Martin heater is brand recent and keeps the house toasty warm in winter.

Storage Included

Two sheds are included, each sided with Cypress to match the home. Each sheds are 10X10, one suitable for dry storage and the opposite for seasonal equipment.

Having a landlord has its perks

If it’ll be your first time living off-grid in Northern Ontario, it is a unique opportunity to make the move while not taking over all the associated responsibilities. The owner covers water, septic, snow removal and land maintenance. Moreover, all maintenance on pumps, the septic pump-out, tree removal etc. is the owner’s responsibility. This is able to prevent money and time annually.

Location seems like a dream

The land available to lease has access to Siamese Twins Lake, a transparent emerald spring-fed lake with fish like Bass and Pond Perch. In your temporary walk to the lake, you’ll find wild blueberries, edible mushrooms, birch trees (which you can tap for syrup in spring) and various leaves for teas. It seems like a forager’s dream home.
