That backyard is exactly one of the reasons we're leaving Toronto: you can have that in Ottawa and still work in the city. Beautiful!

Isn't that Big Joe Mufferaw I see in the background of #2???
I guess it's possible he's the one doing all the planting and pruning:smile:


Yes, Mattawa is 40 min. away from Northbay.

Here's a shot of Mattawa from the hill on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River.

This back yard is the reason I left Huntsville! Even though Huntsville and Muskoka in general have many beautiful lots like this one, I didn't have to pay a million to get it. Believe it or not, my home on this property(4 bed/2 bath), was originally built by CMHC for low income housing. It origianlly sold for $58,000 in 1986 :eek:
Because most of the magor industry is shutting down here in Mattawa, there are homes with acreage for sale for even less than that! I call it the affordable cottage country:food-smiley-004:

I had to read this exchange a couple of times because I kept thing: Mattawa has a subway system? What's with that? I clearly need more sleep than I'm getting.

it's ok, *cough* city boy!
11 years in Toronto now. It's been a complete and total assimilation. I'm prepping for a huge shock to my city boy system at the end of the month when we move!
