 Overview
 Description
Old brick house up on a hill in a stand of trees. Surrounded by old farm machinery and implements. Also features a couple collapsed small barns/machine sheds. Ground cover growth may conceal nail on old boards, so be careful.
Entrance to the house would be easily achieved on the ground floor and basement (assuming the latter.. I haven't
been down there yet).


What was left of the house is no longer standing. It was in bad shape, so it either fell completely, or was bulldozed.

     History
    From the City's Heritage coordinator:

    The farmhouse was built under the name of " Sandford", and is usually referred to as the Sandford Farm. It was built about 1870 and remained in the family until it was sold only a few years ago and developed. The house was designated prior to the fire. When the developer bought the property the house had been sitting vacant and had been vandalised by
    fire. It was always in the development agreement that the house would be kept and renovated as a residential structure. However, as it has sat empty and open to the elements for many years now, the feasibility of it being used for any purpose is doubtful. Its fate has not been decided and continues to be a matter of discussion.
