Eco-home for sale 
CAD $165,000
Tignish, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Here is an opportunity to purchase a permaculture homestead, gardens (Mandala, Herb Spiral, forest garden), pasture and woodlands, 25 acres in total, just over 10 minutes walk to a fantastic beach!  The 2 bed, 2 bath bungalow is incredibly cheap to run and easy on the environment with wood stove and wood cookstove, wood and solar hot water, wood and solar heating, passive solar design.  We use just about 2 cords wood (coppiced from the woodlands) a year.  We're still on-grid using about 4-5 kWh a day (monthly bills around $45).  

Get all your fuel from the land!  We grow and preserve most of our own vegetables, herbs and fruit and keep hens, ducks, goats, etc.  There is a renovated old trailer, amazing huge outbuilding, equipment, furnishings and items required for preserving and cheese-making.  We can teach you the skills you need if you wish, and everything is already here and in-place for a sustainable lifestyle in the woods and by the sea.  

Many possibilities and very flexible for creating an income from the land.  Currently running a craft business (seaglass and driftwood, one of the bedrooms is used as a craft shop) but also could be farm income and much potential for non-timber forest products including wild lowbush blueberries.  Animals can be included with the property if needed -- eggs, fibre, etc.
