development opportunity


hanson homestead
two 9+ acre building lots 

The Hanson Homestead is a 200-acre farm in South River, Ontario which has been in our family since 1884, when it was
cleared and settled by our great great grandfather John Hanson.

Our family has created an amazing opportunity for you to own a piece of Canadian history.

We have severed two development lots which are each close to 10 acres.
Each lot has 300ft of frontage onto Eagle Lake Road with two-thirds flat cleared fields, which are approved for single homes and ready to build.
The rest of the acreage includes your own track of private bush along with your own section of the trout stream.

The Hanson Homestead building lots are perfectly located:
• just two minutes out of the Village of South River
• close to two entrances to Highway 11
• 45 minutes north of Huntsville and 45 minutes south of North Bay

The Hanson Homestead building lots offer the perfect location to build your dream home and to be close to nature with Eagle Lake, Algonquin Park, fishing, hiking, snowmobile trails, ice fishing and hunting just outside your new front door.

Each lot is listed at $150,000 and we are now accepting offers.

Contact us if you’re interested in this unique opportunity to own a piece of the Hanson Homestead.
