    Description

    This panhandle-shaped acreage offers some gorgeous vistas and do not be fooled by its size, it is fully useable and has a little of everything!


    The main part of the land consists of a flat bench that is lightly forested with a good driveway off a side road and then extending all the way through the land for easy access. There are a number of building sites, either more conveniently located closer to the road or further within the acreage offering the utmost in privacy.


    From the approved building site you could situate a home or cabin with exposure out to the Rockies or more southwest out to the Columbia River, Wetlands and Purcell Mountains.


    The land extends out towards the Columbia River and ends at a great birding pond. A nice open draw (a couple acres in size) makes great natural grazing land. This is the ideal property for a few horses with lots of well-established trails. The land is partially fenced and mostly light to medium density trees.


    Ideal for year-round living or recreational pursuits.

    Area Data

    Edgewater
    Edgewater is an unincorporated hamlet located in the Columbia Valley on the perimeter of Kootenay National Park and adjacent to the spectacular Columbia River. Originally known and founded as a farming community before the First World War. The community of 550 residents has since established itself into a forestry, agriculture and tourism area for the region. The community gets its name from being the edge of the waters of the Columbia River. There is a golf course, general store/gas station and most commercial services are only 10 km south in Radium or another 5 minutes to Invermere.


    Columbia Valley
    The Rocky Mountain Trench, known as the Columbia Valley, is surrounded by the BC Rocky Mountains on the east and the Purcell Mountains to the west. Both are impressively high and rugged ranges. The Columbia River, with its headwaters in Columbia Lake, rolls through the southern part of the valley northward for more than 200 km before bending southward and heading west to the Pacific Ocean. This broad waterway is an important stopover on the semi-annual migration route for wildlife and offers world renowned bird watching. The climate here is one of Canada’s most desirable with lots of sunshine and long summers with minimal winter precipitation low in the valley but lots of top in the mountains.

    Recreation

    The climate in the Columbia Valley provides for four seasons of recreational activities.


    For winter enthusiasts the land on the property is great for cross-country skiing or snow shoeing with lots of small ups and downs. Not far away you can find some great terrain via Kindersley Creek Forest Service Rd which accesses crown land and the into the Rockies. In terms of downhill skiing your best option is Panorama about an hour away, or Kicking Horse also about an hour away. You also have Fairmont Hot Springs which offers great family skiing and night skiing 45 minutes south. The lake or spring would make a prime skating rink.


    In the non-snow months you have a very long golf season and numerous courses, from a small executive and 9-hole course a couple kilometres away to several world class courses only 15 minutes away. You also have great access to trails both on and off the property. Kindersley Creek Forest service road gets you very remote very quickly - ideal for hunting. The land is ideal for horses and trail riding. Lots of wildlife on the land. Motorsports, mountain biking, you name it - it’s all possible.
