WHERE IS THIS PROPERTY?
A nice property only 3.1 kilometers or almost 2 miles east of Highway 11 south of the Town of Cochrane in BEAUTIFUL Northeastern Ontario.
Lamarche Township falls within the boundary of the Town Of Cochrane so it is AN ORGANIZED TOWNSHIP.
Cochrane is located east of Kapuskasing, northeast of Timmins, south of Moosonee, and north of Iroquois Falls.
It is about a one-hour drive from Timmins, the major city of the region.
It is the seat of Cochrane District.
With some of the lowest property taxes in Northeastern Ontario, Cochrane provides the highest quality of northern living at competitive cost to the tax payer.
There is no survey of this property.
The property to the immediate east was recently survey, so the two common corner posts (the northwest corner and the southwest corner) are marked with a metal post and flagging tape so it will be easy to find those two corners.
Once you have the one corner then measure the frontage to get to the other corner.
This property is 37.6 Acres in size.
The property has 190 meters or 623 feet of frontage on Nahma Road AND 801 meters or about 2,630 feet of depth.
Nahma Road is a municipally maintained road that is plowed in winter and OPEN YEAR ROUND.
Electrical power runs along Nahma Road so if you want you can hook up to the grid or stay OFF THE GRID.

There used to be an old homestead here at one time but over the years the old buildings were torn down and removed.
The original driveway entrance has long been gone so a new one would have to be installed by the new owner.
From the aerial photos we can see where the old hay fields were on the front half of the property.
The front half is higher than the rear half of the property.
The rear half appears to be wet at certain times of the year.
The rear half would be good to run some cattle or sheep on.
The big game would tend to remain in the lower half of the property because it is wetter at times.
The Cochrane area is a nice area to live in.
The people are friendly.
Everything is close by.
