The Basement is finished with a warm, wood paneled and beamed, open concept Rec Room with vinyl flooring, a wood stove (W.E.T.T. certified), above-grade windows, and built-in custom shelving and wet bar with fridge. There is a convenient, separate entry/exit from and to the Basement.
Mechanicals: 200 amp electrical service (copper); propane boiler heats water for hot water tank (very efficient “tank in a tank”); main heating system is hot water propane (2011), propane supplier, Edpro (London, On.); drilled well approximately 50 feet deep with submersible pump & cistern to provide even pressure (2017), plus a U.V. system, and water softener. The well is located near the “dome.” (An older Jet Stream, wood-fired hot water heating furnace is still in the basement and is not currently in use.) The septic system is original (under the bird feeder) and last pumped in 2015. The roof was re-shingled in 2008, with 40-year shingles. Windows are mostly newer triple glaze, excepting sliding door in kitchen. Hydro costs for 2016 were $2,844; propane costs approximately $1,642 in 2016, however, a newly installed gas fireplace may increase that amount for 2017.
In-Ground Pool: State of the art, natural ozone pool, chemical free, 20 x 40 ft. has cement surround, and the pool liner, filter, pump, ozone generator and sanitizer, and safety winter cover were installed by Gibsan Pools in 2008. The pool is not heated.
5Kw Micro-Fit System: There are two hydro meters on the property; one is for the sellers’ regular consumption, and the other is a Revenue meter. There are 26 panels on the south side of the roof (pool side) with a micro-fit 5 Kilowatt solar system installed in 2011, which earns approximately $4,500 net per year based on the sale of power at 80.2 cents per Kwh. This system is almost maintenance free, and monitored by Enphase. Should a micro-inverter not be working, Enphase replaces it for free and it is a simple fix to install it. Monthly checks for collection of hydro are directly deposited to the owner’s bank account. This system is transferrable to the Buyer and has 15 years remaining on the contract. (Energy Report available upon request.)
