Owners’ comments

Estate with maple grove, main residence + guest house, spa, triple garage, lakes, panoramic views.

Nestled at the foot of the Smith Mountains in the beautiful Valley of St-Cyr, where panoramic views are omnipresent, this 114-acre estate offers you great outdoors while being within 10 minutes of Richmond / Asbestos proximity services,  30 minutes from  3 Regional Centers ( Sherbrooke, Drummondville and Victoriaville) .

The access to this domain by the way of the Valley is of a great discretion. A private 580 m path begins with a narrow passage under the trees that encloses the estate and makes it safer. Then you will have a splendid view of the Smith Mountains while passing in the middle of 2 lakes. Arrived near the residence, you will discover a landscaping of great beauty even if it is composed almost entirely of perennials. You will begin to live a great peace...

This domain includes:

74 acre maple grove with maple syrup quota

Currently rented until 2022 with annual revenues of more than $7,000 /year, this maple grove could then be exploited by the buyer. Also, there is the possibility of renegotiating the lease when buying or waiting for the end of the lease. Also, the tenant is currently looking into the possibility of buying it separately from the residence. The value of this maple grove is the main asset of the estate according to our appraiser.

Main residence (cottage) with attached centenary secondary residence, independent, renovated in respect and accessible by a greenhouse. Two worlds, harmoniously integrated, which gives the whole an apparent age of 18 according to our evaluator, while the cottage was built in 1976. This apparent age rests on a multitude of renovations / modifications over the years. The owners occupy the main residence and the centenary house serves as a guest house. The centennial home could be easily converted to a cottage / farm cottage, or used as a bi-generation home, or as a support staff house. The two residences, built before the coming into force of the Act Respecting the Protection of Agricultural Land and Agricultural Activities (1978), have an acquired right and could therefore be sold separately from the agricultural land, with a maximum of 107,640 sq. ft. Currently, no steps or subdivisions have been made to take advantage of this acquired right. A global sale would be preferred by the seller.

Garage-workshop triple automatic doors (2,300 sq. ft. spread over 2 floors with a height of + 12 ft. per floor). This garage, already multi-functional, could use a small part of its space by arranging on the second floor a cottage on the farm, or an artist's studio. The view of the Valley is magnificent ...

Carport shelter 45' x 17.5' x 13' high. Ideal for RV and / or other important equipment.

Firewood shed (more than 15 cords).

6-seater spa with veranda on 3 sides and opening on the mountain and the stars...

15 solar panels on pole, with pointer (follows the sun according to algorithms). Connected to the < Net Measure System of Hydro Quebec>,  it supplies the approximately 40,000 KM / year traveled by the 2 owners of electric cars in addition to reducing the overall electricity bill by approximately $400 /year. Converted to climate change and smaller electric cars, homeowners save about $5,200 a year in gasoline, in addition to the impact on the environment.

2 streams

3 lakes including one for swimming near the residence. An immense canvas, deposited in the bottom and on the grassy periphery of this last, makes it possible to keep the control of its vegetation.

22 acres of grasslands for hay, without chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides since 2015. Possibility of developing a more rewarding organic crop (ex:  vineyard or berries ...)

12 acres of woodland (mature forest)

Mature apple trees (15), cleared on the ground but without any watering, providing an ideal diet for deer and wild turkeys, and an obvious attraction for hunters, especially with the ancestral home as lodging. In the back of the orchard, it is the maple grove of the estate which is part of a forest of more than 1,000 acres. Until now, it was an activity reserved for the family. It is a possibility not exploited commercially until now.

3-door shed, further away but electrified (550 sq. ft. for various uses)

The seller may have several furniture and / or equipment (subject to negotiation).

The steps involved in buying a property

Could this property be “the one”? Here’s an overview of the steps involved in becoming the owner. These steps and the legal implications remain the same whether the property is purchased from an individual or through a broker.

1
Financing

One of the first things to do when looking for a property is to get a mortgage preapproval from a financial institution. The goal is to determine borrowing capacity, and as a result, the price range to be looking in.

2
Offer to purchase

The property suits the budget and needs? Time to submit an offer to purchase! This document sets out the price, the elements included in the sale, the possession date, the conditions of purchase and all other information relevant to the sale.

3
Conditions of purchase

The offer to purchase generally includes conditions. The most common are the property passing an inspection, the buyer providing proof of financing and the buyer selling their own property. Once the listed conditions are met, the property is considered sold.

4
Property transfer

The last step is to see a notary, who is generally chosen by the buyer. This real estate professional drafts the deed of sale and ensures that the interests of all parties involved are respected.

Once the deed of sale is notarized, the new owner gets the keys to the home. All that’s left is to move in!
