Yellow brick farmhouse just north of Ayr on a busy road close to the 401. Active farm across the road. House is abandoned, but the property provides access to the fields behind it, and there is some storage in the outbuildings. Three wells found, all covered posing no danger. No poe at this time and vandal free, with just a few broken outer windows and some boards put in on the lower level. Not sure if the owners run the farm across the road, but nobody bothered me for the half hour I was exploring and parked right in front. House is in good shape except for the shed-like addition on the rear, which is starting to show holes in the roof etc. No mention of the structure nor ownership of the land in the 1878 atlas.

I just visited there recently, on 12/10/2015. I gained access inside via a window in the back that had a saw horse and ply wood on it that was falling out. I took my GoPro with me, and got some cool video of the inside - the pictures I have posted are screenshots from said video. Probably the coolest place I've been within walking distance, better than the house next to the Greenfield mill.

Drove past this place today and it looks the same, vacant and no landscaping, I would be very surprised if it were being seriously renovated for immediate use. I would think preservation work is being done if so, but can't tell anything seeing it for myself ;)

LOL! Exterior only because inside was boring to me! The tv was kinda cool but the tv had too much crap piled on it for me to want to set up a shot!

This place is up there with one of the most boring explores I have ever done. Don't let the awesome exterior fool you! All interesting features have been removed. Brand spanking new roof clearly shows this place is being restored.

Those people across the street own it so I hear. That would explain the scrutiny.

Would have thought someone had found this place prior and of course it would be you lol...with traffic, the farm across the road and no obvious entry point I kept it outside...maybe I should have just tried one of the doors?
