Iilah and Tawlia Chickalo have privately owned, operated and developed Philoxia’s 334 acre estate for over 34 years while keeping it all sweet and pure. Philoxia's Ley Line property has a unique variety of environmentally balanced features unrivaled not only in North America, but the world. Truly a wonderful environment in which to live and work. Philoxia’s wide range of terrain features high wooded hills, open fields, stone outcrops of white quartz and pink granite, fruit laden fence lines and picturesque wetlands.
A tropical fen is a region of land bearing geological factors which temper the effects of extreme weather, (i.e.: severe frost and cold, drought and heat). These temperate conditions allow unique and uncommon species of plants and animal life to thrive where they are not normally found.Philoxia is situated on a registered "tropical fen for a northern climate”.
It is the alkalinity of the marl under the terrain and water, which modifies the local climate allowing this land to support wild exotic plants such as orchids, pitcher plants, ginseng, golden seal, wild ginger, watercress and other herbs.Marl is a very ancient, alkaline clay with the most unbelievable health benefits. Due to the wealth of vegetation on this property, it supports a most interesting variety of wild Canadian animal life: deer, coyotes, fox, wolf, bear, beaver, otter and a multitude of birds and water fowl.
One of North America’s largest Ley Lines runs right through Philoxia. Ley lines are naturally occurring regions between two high-energy points.Ley lines are invisible to the naked eye, yet they are detectable from satellite with special equipment. They are also perceivable by experts in ‘energy detection’. Regions around the earth with Ley Lines have been used to house special structures an ancient gathering places, i.e.: the Pyramids of Egypt and Central America, Stonehenge, Delphi, Chichen-itza, Averbury Mounds, The Vatican, Akakohr, etc.
One of North America’s largest Ley Lines runs right through Philoxia. This Ley Line aligns itself directly to the vortex of the Lake Ontario Triangle, which geometrically lines up to the Bermuda Triangle and all the great wonders of the Old and New Worlds.
As a result, the Ley Line supplies an unparalleled energy balance for Philoxia and the surrounding area. The effect of this energy on those who repeatedly come from distances near and far, was often reflected in their comments of how relaxed and calm they felt. Thousands of guests have departed Philoxia feeling rejuvenated, physically and spiritually, while others simply say they felt very much at peace.
Philoxia features 1.5 miles of private waterfront property on the north shore of Lime Lake.Lime Lake stretches almost 4 miles in a NE to SW direction and it looks just like a fresh-water Caribbean Lagoon. This lake remains clean and alive due to the benefits of the alkaline marl basin.
Philoxia owns the mining rights to one of the world’s largest, richest and purest deposits of marl. Marl is a fine white clay power, having many diverse applications ranging from industrial and commercial, to domestic and personal health. The whiteness of the marl deposit can be seen in the water in the pictures on this page and subsequent pages, yet the main bulk of the mined marl reserve is still hidden directly under the bush areas to the left.
The diversity of the terrain in and around Lime Lake is quite dramatic. The water covering the ‘white’ areas averages between 1 to 7 feet in depth, while the blue water areas are up to 90 feet deep.There are hundreds of fresh water springs throughout Lime Lake, which accounts for the constant flow of cool, fresh, deep earth water.There are no rivers or streams running into Lime Lake. It is fed by a deep underground river, which springs up from water running deep within the Pre-Cambrian Shield.
These turquoise waters filter from this unpolluted source up through the limestone and into Lime Lake and other natural springs.The pristine view of this private, crystal clear lake, with its white marl bottom is enough to take one’s breath away. We encourage paddle and wind sailing crafts, although there are occasional small-motorized fishing boats to be seen. The fishing is fantastic and plentiful. Local residents privately own the remaining perimeter of Lime Lake.
There is No Public Access to Lime Lake
