LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! 89 acres on the eastern outskirts of Cambridge. Within 30 to 60 minutes drive of 3 International airports and many major cities. Easy highway access. The southern half of the property consists of a 4350 square foot custom built stone home overlooking a small lake with an island. Great potential for a multi million dollar luxury estate. GRCA has jurisdiction over part of this property. The northern half of the property is farmed and has great future development potential (15+ years). Perfect to help pay for everything. Built to a high standard for 1989, the home features a traditional layout with spacious rooms. Up to 5 above grade bedrooms in the main house. One bedroom apartment with outside entrance on second floor. One bedroom basement apartment with separate entrance. The house is still in original condition, dated for today’s market with lots of honey coloured oak. Double garage with staircase to basement. The house would need a substantial investment to bring it up to date to today’s standards. There is a certain amount of debris on the property including some old cars, trailers and shipping containers. Property including house being sold “as is”. Don’t let that make you miss this gem - a true diamond in the rough.
