    Description

    Located on the north side of Glimpse Lake in the prestigious enclave of the Little Beaver Creek Ranch gated community sits this beautiful southwest exposed lakefront lot. Perched overlooking the lake is one of the nicest garages with living quarters above that you will ever come across. This building is nicer than most of the fully completed lakefront homes in the Thompson-Okanagan. The structure is built to lockup with all the heavy lifting already completed. A savvy buyer has the option of finishing off the interior of the building and using the property as their lakefront getaway, or finishing off the current building and using it as a residence while building their dream home on lot which was the original intention of the current owner.


    On the main floor you will find a large RV garage of approximately 46’ x 17’ with secure indoor parking for even your largest RV or motorhome. A large two-car garage provides additional parking on the main. The layout of the interior of the main floor includes a workshop, utility rooms, storage, furnace room, shower and elevator. On the exterior a large covered patio takes in the lake views, the sound of the loons, the songbirds on the lakeshore and is just a great place to have your morning coffee.


    In the upstairs suite you’ll find two bedrooms and one bathroom. There’s also a full laundry and large living area with views of towards the lake.


    The property including the garage has 600 W power which is more than enough to service any future home built on the lot. Services already installed include a septic system, a propane system already plumbed, in floor radiant heat and a pressurized boiler system. The main well water system providing domestic water is also connected.


    Glimpse Lake is private and quiet with only a small number of cabins and public use areas. Enhancing the lake's peaceful nature is the electric motor only policy.


    The outdoor recreational opportunities are almost limitless with literally hundreds of kilometres of ATV trails and logging roads extending from the property. You can literally catch rainbow trout off the dock. Glimpse Lake is widely regarded as one of the top trout fishing lakes in the area, it’s not uncommon for anglers to catch 20+ fish per day. There are several other great fishing lakes in the immediate area, including Blue Lake, Little Blue Lake, Peter Hope Lake, Plateau Lake and several others. Without question one of the best-selling features for the Glimpse Lake area are the 4 distinct seasons can enjoy. The winter offers excellent snowmobiling, great hunting in the fall, trout fishing in the spring and pure relaxation during the summer.


    Bare land strata fee of $220/month. All measurements are approximate. Buyer to verify any measurements deemed important.

And nothing feels better than peeling off the layers of icy snow gear to sit by the fireplace with your favourite drink to reflect on the thrills of the day.

    History

    The Nicola Valley and Glimpse Lake are among the most picturesque and historic places in the interior of British Columbia. The area's original inhabitants predate recorded history and the valley's stunning natural beauty has remained largely unchanged to this day. Like a land frozen in time during the real West, its effect on all who see it is immediate and profound. It is, without a doubt, one of the most rare and beautiful places remaining in Canada's West today.
