Description :

I am very pleased to offer this 84.5 acre property with uninterrupted 360 degree views of mountains and waterfalls. This stunning acreage is close to the highway yet very private. It is mostly level on the front section and gently sloping in the back with numerous trails meandering through the forest and up to the waterfall. This property is beautifully landscaped and is complete with fenced gardens, a fenced orchard, greenhouse and a pond, all with equally impressive mountain views.


The property also offers a large 30’ x 40’ shop on a 3 ft Styrofoam block foundation with 12’ ceilings and 200 amp service. One of the shop bays is also complete with an underfloor water heating system. The entire shop is constructed with R40 ceiling insulation and R20 wall insulation, a metal roof, metal siding and a separate 8’ x 40’ mezzanine with lots of shelving for storage. The front doors to the shop are 9’ x 9’ and 10’ x 16’, and are both insulated to R16. The very well-constructed shop can also be converted into a separate B&B or rental property.


The home is equally well built, offering a very welcoming 26’ x 30’ open concept kitchen, dining room and living room. This area is accented with 13’ vaulted ceilings, 9’ walls and floor-to-ceiling south-facing windows taking in the full mountain and waterfall views. It is complete with engineered hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace.


The short hallway is perfectly appointed with a laundry/utility closet and a large pantry with floor to ceiling, repositioning shelving maximizing on space. The home also offers 2 large bedrooms (17’ x 14’5 and 15’5 x 14’5) and a 4-piece bathroom. The bedrooms are both complete with vaulted ceilings and one with a 9’ x 5’ walk-in closet.


Every details was considered when building this meticulously constructed home. This is truly one of the most stunning, properties with one of the newest, well-built homes in the Bella Coola Valley.

It is also the home of coastal wolves, black bears, grizzlies and the unique Kermode “Spirit Bear.”
