Owners’ comments

One of a kind eco-home on a quiet dead-end road surrounded by natural beauty on all sides. Located just 5 minutes outside the sleepy little town of Mansonville, Quebec.

  • 100% hydronic hot water heated floors throughout home on both levels. Zero radiators and zero drafts!
  • Very low on-going maintenance (metal roof; no paint/stain ever required on outside of structure); Zero-maintenance Enviroseptic waste water system; concrete polished floors on both levels; geothermal hydronic heating on both floors / no forced air fans to maintain or air filters to replace; dedicated heat-recovery air exchanger with hepa filter with rigid piping; easy access to water and plumbing for all appliances and fixtures throughout the house).
  • Perfect for someone looking to retire and/or run a small BnB. Also great for individuals who want a place to house additional family members in complete privacy.
  • Located in the vast municipality of Potton with fewer then 2000 full time residents offering lots of peace and quite and an abundance of nature. 
  • CLSC & Familiprix pharmacy located in town only 5 minutes away with easy access to a family doctor.
  • 15 minutes from Owl's Head with views from property of Jay Peak and the Green Mountain Nature Preserve.

2018 upgrades include:

  • Radon mitigation system.
  • Italian porcelain tiles: Master bedroom, vestibule/laundry room & master bathroom (all on upper level).
  • High end heating cables on roof at back of house as a preventative measure.

Beautiful 13' deep private pond perfect for taking a dip on hot sunny days with natural rock face and completely in tune with nature. Designed to blend in nicely with its surroundings with lots of mature trees and view of mountains to the west. Nothing like it anywhere in the area.

This is a very recent construction completed end of 2015. You pay no GST or PST.

Don't forget to check out the 360 degree view of our wide open cathedral roof which showcases the great room, living room and kitchen areas.

Lower level suite is currently generating a constant revenue stream of $2,000/month through short term rentals.

  • Make even more income renting out second private bedroom/bathroom combination on lower level.
  • Design also allows you to run a bed and breakfast by serving meals on upper level. Layout provides an easy way to cordon off private areas while allow guests full access to the great room, wash closet as well as both balconies.
  • Registered with municipality as a multi-generational dwelling allowing for second kitchen on lower level.
  • Current Airbnb listings at airbnb.ca/rooms/6539579 & airbnb.ca/rooms/18666165.
  • Easily rent out the 2nd floor for twice as much income and live very comfortably on the lower level.
  • Revenue for 2017 was 20K+. Revenue for 2018 was 24K+. Current expected yearly revenu. (3 rental units) is 50 to 60K.

Asking price reflects the large investment made in quality materials and features.

Over $400K+ in materials costs alone not including labor. High end investments were made in areas which matter most.

  • Geo-thermal radiant heated concrete floors on both levels, super-insulated walls and ceiling costing a mere $130 per month in electricity to operate (includes 100% of all heating / cooling, hot water, lighting and appliances).
  • 12" solid high-density Styrofoam roof with standing-seam galvanized metal finish. Both levels have hydronic geothermal heated polished concrete floors with a total of 5 separate heating zones providing an unmatched level of comfort.
  • Dedicated rigid ducting air-exchanger. Zero external drafts of any kind throughout the home. Meticulously sealed to prevent air leakage.
  • Naturally maintained humidity levels year round between 40 and 50%. Building envelope is designed to breath slowly preventing interior air from being to humid or dry.
  • All exterior above-grade wall structures are designed to breath preventing trapped moisture including exterior wood cladding which has "Eco Wood Treatment" applied to both the front and back surfaces.
  • CertainTeed's Membrain vapor retarder on interior side of wall structures instead of the standard vapor barrier found in almost all homes. An intelligent membrane which seals up tight in high humidity conditions and becomes porous in dry conditions allowing any trapped moisture to easily escape.
  • Two solid layers of Roxul Comfortboard installed on both sides of exterior walls with 5 1/2" of Roxul Comfortbatt within 2x6 studs centered at 24".
  • Enviroseptic waste water system which is completely passive and requires no electricity, no moving parts and no maintenance (http://www.enviro-septic.com).
  • Performance that far exceeds current nova-climate standards.

Did you know?

Whether you purchase a property from a homeowner or from a broker, the steps involved and the legal implications are the same. You’ll see that buying without an intermediary has many advantages!

Can I afford to buy this property?

Prior to visiting a property, you should verify whether you have the means to purchase it by meeting with a financial advisor. Don’t forget, you must have enough money to cover both a down payment and the expenses related to the transaction (notary, property transfer duties, etc.).

Is this property right for me?

Consult the listing to determine whether the property features meet your needs. If necessary, communicate with the homeowner to obtain additional information. You may then make an appointment with the homeowner for a visit and prepare a list of questions to ask him.

Do I need to conduct a property inspection?

Verifying the condition of the property prior to purchasing it is a good precaution to take. In order to do so, you can hire a home inspector. He will intervene at a later date. Be prepared to add the inspection conditions to the offer to purchase.

How much should I offer?

Easily familiarize yourself with the market by visiting DuProprio.com and by verifying the price that comparable properties in the area have sold for. You’ll get a better idea of how much you should offer. You can also hire a licensed appraiser.

How do I proceed with an offer to purchase?

Have a discussion with the homeowner in order to come to an agreement on the price, the conditions of the sale and the possession date. You can then complete the offer to purchase form.

Thanks to DuProprio, the seller benefits from a legal assistance service and can ask their legal questions in order to properly complete the document.

The sale will be sealed with a notary, but until then, nothing prevents you from consulting a notary to write-up an offer to purchase. Once the deed of sale is drafted, you will be the new homeowner!
