This farm has been abandoned for a few years. Can be seen from Highway 400, but remains hidden behind a long driveway and trees. The farm includes a large brick farmhouse, a workshop, and large barn that is on the verge of collapse. There are no neighbours within site of the farm, but the long driveway is very open to view.

The house is the largest farmhouse I have seen. Inside is in great condition, no vandalism and all windows remain intact. A very well built structure, looks like it could be used again after some fixing up. The rooms are a good size and the house is much larger inside than it appears from the exterior. Someone has gained an entry point by pushing in the side door, and some chairs have been set up in the living room, but the house is fairly clean, with the exception of the washrooms which have been trashed. Hopefully this house will remain off the vandals hit list.

The workshop is not in great condition. The upper level floor is weak and has open holes, do not go in there. A huge bear skin hangs on the far wall, but you cannot get there safely. The lower levels show this was tool room and workshop for JR Racing, and some very colourful posters of the day remain hanging. The calendar on the wall is from 1990.

The barn is very large, but unstable. I did not go inside or get too close, not much to see here.

I could barely recognize this place as alot has changed since the last posted explore back in 2015. As you know the house is gone and the remaining structures are overgrown. You can barely see anything from the road and the driveway in had field brush about 4ft tall, good thing I drive an SUV. Pics coming.

Went here with my Dad today, he thinks the last owners were a group of hippies judging by the minor repairs. The trailer in the back has been unoccupied since 2012. We knocked and peeked in to shout "hello??" before checking out the house.
We saw two cars parked outside a house that doesn't have a location yet on the 5th SR, PM me if that was you :)

Great place! Will be checking this out soon since it's so close to me. :)
