Description

This little place is about to topple... Basically the whole house is in the basement. I do not recommend anyone enter this one. It looks as though they were attempting to clean the place up, there are garbage bags and disposal bins all along the sides of the driveway. A blue Neon is in the driveway filled to the brim with someone else's treasures. I did not enter the buildings at the back as its quite a busy road and neighbours are close by.

-----------------------------

From Catreeena:

Found this location on our road trip to Arthur, what caught my attention was the house with a caved in roof. The place is beautiful but very unstable, I did not want to risk it going any further than two steps inside the front door. I really wish I could of been able to venture in more, however it just was not safe. The floors were all sinking and in the far corner of what I assume was the living room in its time had a piano that was slowly sinking deeper and deeper into the basement. There are no floors on the left side of the upstairs, and the right side still has some but very unstable. Do not enter, I would advise you to just take a glance inside if you dare but nothing more.

    There are sold signs up though, so it could get interesting. If he is there and they put fences up, he might be screwed. Ya I guess FM might be good here, then.

    My uncle once informed me of ontario laws regarding 'squatters rights', aka 'adverse possession'. Google 'squatters rights'. This is exactly what this man is doing by parking out in the open here like this. If he can prove in court that he has done this continuously for 10 years, then he can legally gain possession of this property... for free.
    I guess this scruffy old guy is a clever old

    Yes, there are squatters here every summer. Not sure if it's just the scruffy lookin old guy or if there are more of them, but I've heard stories of them being hostile towards visitors/explorers. So best to avoid this place if a second car is there..

    I think I drove by this place about a month or so ago. I turned around and went back scope it out, and there was someone sitting in small dark car reading the paper. The back of the car was filled with garbage bags. I decided it best to move on.

    I can't see a reason for this to be FM anymore. The house is now split open and sold signs up, so this may be all cleared soon. Maybe a good explore for basic members now. It's too bad the owner of the stuff inside the vehicle didn't have anywhere else for it. Life can be so hard. Nice old wooden chairs out back. Holy 2litre bottles , eh? geez.

    I've driven past this location hundreds of times and I always wondered about it. The fact that the driveway was partly mowed in the summer and there was a "No Trespassing" sign always kept me out. Sad to see it's almost completely collapsed over the winter.
