Davidson Drive Property – 53 Acres estate subdivision lot

This property has since been sold.


53 acre building lot, 2 minutes from Acton.

A rare opportunity to own acreage in an estate subdivision setting.  Other properties are available but they are usually on a remote county road or highway, this property has access from a quiet, prestigious estate subdivision road.  The other homes in this subdivision were built in the last 10 years by Legend Homes of Oakville.

Imagine living in a estate subdivision close to town and being able to have horses.  Where else can you find land in Halton Region for $22,600 an acre?   Compare to other one acre building lots farther from town for $450K and up.  An incredible value.

Building permits are available immediately.  Hydro and natural gas are available at the lot line.  There are three new wells on the property.  The property boasts multiple potential building sites.  Several of building sites would lend themselves to a basement walkout.  Some sites are completely secluded from all roads and neighbors if you value your privacy.

This is an ideal opportunity to build a dream home and land bank for the future.  The property is located directly between the town limits and an existing estate subdivision which makes it a prime location to be annexed by the town in the future.  This may take many years to happen but when it does the property will likely increase in value by ten fold or more.

There are many uses permitted under the present zoning including an equestrian centre, both private or for profit.  The land is presently zoned protected countryside and the following uses are permitted.

• Agricultural Uses (including retail as long as under 500 sq/meters)
• Animal Clinics
• Bed and Breakfast Establishment
• Cottage Industries
• Conservation Uses
• Equestrian Centre
• Farm Employment Accommodation
• Farm Related Tourism (under 250 sq/meters of floor area)
• Group Homes
• Home Industries (under 200sq/m )
• Home Occupations
• Place of Worship
• Private Home Daycare
• Single Detached Dwellings
• Treatment Centre

The lot has three frontages, one from Davidson Drive (66 feet), one from Highway 25 (232 feet) and one from 32nd Sideroad (203 feet).  You can choose which road you build your driveway from or have multiple entrances.

The land has about 18 acres of farmable land (currently planted with soybeans), about 12 acres of old-growth hardwood forest, a 1.25 acre pond and the remaining land being open fields or light forest.

Can this land be subdivided or severed?  There are three frontages that would make it a logical candidate for severance but presently it is our understanding that severances would not be permitted.

Is this property under Niagara Escarpment jurisdiction?  No.

Is this property part of the Oak Ridges Moraine?  No.

Is this property within a key natural heritage or hydrological feature?  No, and before anyone asks, it is not
within a provincially designated “natural heritage system”  either.

Is this within the Greenbelt Plan?  Yes.  It is also situated directly between the town of Acton and a subdivision which would make it a natural candidate to be one day annexed by the town for development.

Is this land under CVC restrictions?  Yes, about 20% of the land cannot be built on but it does not have much affect on the use of the land.  Maps and more details upon request.

I am the owner.   I am not looking for a real estate agent but the property is listed with MLS so agents will be compensated.   If you are a buyer please contact me directly, if you are an agent with a buyer I will direct you to the listing agent.

Vendor take-back mortgage available with a reasonable down payment.

The property has access off of Davidson Drive, an upscale estate subdivision that was completed about 10 years ago.
