This little house on the hill is barley visible from the road, and is almost a 10 minute walk from the road up to the house. Marked on the Canadian Country atlas under the name of Edward Coltham, Circa 1878. I recently went in to the Stouffville town hall, and checked the property owners. Its owned by a company, and listed under 3 people with the same last name. Tried to lookup the company, but there isnt anything on the net about them.

Along with the house, there is a silo, remains of a barn, shed, and another small shed. The property seems to have been abandoned for a few decades or so, assuming from the rot and decay of the structures. The location has been kept secret to preserve whats left, And keep people safe. The house has a few hidden holes in the floors from old heating ducts, and are big enough to get hurt from. Same with the (remains of the) barn. And above all else, if you do visit this place, DO NOT take your car past the gate. I cant explain it, but the place is like car-cursed or something. you get stuck, break down, or something where your car ends up on the hook-end of a towtruck.

Update: Another interesting find made today (7/10/12). Despite how many times I visit this place, I'm.always fining a new treat. What might be a concrete pad (approx '50 x '50) found in the high field north of the barn wreckage. About 98% of this is buried under as much as a foot of dirt, or mostly 5 to 6 inches, minus about 30 square feet exposed at the north east corner. My sensus can't get over the fact somethings weird here...

May not be abandoned much longer, as they have been keeping an updated appraisal value on the land. (Its currently at $450,000 some-odd dollars for 87 acres) A developers dream.

I suspect that a squatter has been staying here. There is a brand new tent out back and what looks like a well used campsite. That and the fact that someone yelled "Hey!" at me from inside the house on approach. I didn't stick around to find out.

Interesting write up. I visited this location yesterday and I actually found the drive up the giant, bumpy, curvy hill more exciting then the house itself. Everything is falling apart and it's hard to tell what's vandalism and what's just pure decay.

I went to check this place out today. It's almost too far gone for me to even consider taking my camera out but I tried any way. I drove straight up to the house and while the drive-way was rough in spots I made it all the way up and back out again without any instances of breaking down. I figured I would give it a shot, there was no way my day could possibly have gotten worse!
