may be up to 10 Acres.

On a bit of a hill/ in a valley, with a good fast flowing stream in it, so I can use it to power a generator!

A 2/3 acres of woodland, a large pond (just big enough for a small row boat)

Bee, hens, pigs, goat or two.

Nuclear bunker, (you never know)

Nice house, quite modern.

Would there be anything left once the cedar trees are gone?
