Clara AshtonAbandoned – Ottawa/Gatineau & The Valley

Yesterday at 9:55 AM  · Oh the nostalgia. I sometimes shed a tear driving by. My childhood home, now sitting empty and without a doubt falling apart on the inside.

It’s not technically “abandoned” I guess. Its vacant and I don’t think the inside has been maintained since 2013.

They cut the grass in the summer and if I’m not mistaken they use the barns for storage, but the home has not seen a family since June 2013 when we moved out. In the winter nobody plows the driveway, so it really looks lonely that 6 months of the year.

The farmhouse is located outside of Carleton Place, right before scotch corners road and tatlock road when you’re going westbound on highway 7.

Part of me wonders if they’re sitting on it to eventually sell to a developer, but that’s nothing more than speculation.

It’s been sad slowly watching things fall apart throughout the years. I wish they’d do something with it.

*I’m not recommending that anyone trespasses, it’s very much owned by someone*

Victoria WilliamsonThe golf course owns it! I’m sure some day they will add more holes for the course maybe make it into a club house.

Troy StanzelThat was my grandfather’s farm Lindsey Thompson

Ashley MarieI used to shop here when Clara was little. Her mom is a wonderful lady. I miss riding here and spending my hard earned barn chore money 💜

Emma Drummond-LeclairAshley Marie right?! I remember when Clara was a little girl too! Running around the shop!

Dawna HurdisUsed to be a beautiful home when my Grandpa owned it. So much character on the inside! Saddens me as well each time I drive by and see it deteriorating. Lots of child hood memories on that property!

helma DowdallWhen I was a child this house belonged to a Mr. and Mrs Boland. They had no family. I always thought that they had the house built but I could be wrong.

Jessica RaceyI’ve always loved this home!! I can never understand why people just leave homes to slowly deteriorate. Why not rent it out, if it’s just sitting there and someone still owns it?

Dave HickThe attic is full of guano and the house has virtually no insulation knob and tube wiring an outdated oil furnace single pane windowsHowever it would be a great candidate for a complete overhaul

Tanis CordickDave Hick we were u set the assumption the owner of the golf course had bought it and was going to use the house as a clubhouse, I’m guessing that’s not the case 🤷‍♀️

Dave HickTanis Cordick i did an inspection on it before the golf course bought itBarn is in good shapeGood deal on the land because house needed lots of work
