Scenic acreage in the Shuswap with a little bit of everything—quality hay land, open pasture, mature forest, water licence on adjacent creek & a nice little 1 bedroom cabin and a well-built barn.
FOREIGN BUYER BAN DOES NOT APPLY
Stunning 40-acre parcel of land in Celista on the North Shuswap.
This property has a little bit of everything with quality agricultural land that is partially fenced and cross fenced and last year was seeded with approximately 17 acres in hay, approx. 9 acres in a Timothy/rye grass mix, and 2.5 acres of pasture.
There is then an additional 9+ acres in mature forest with some nice pole quality cedar and 2.5 acres in landscaping around the cabin and barn.
The views from every angle are gorgeous and it’s hard to find a nicer front porch view than from the cabin—excellent Airbnb potential. This cabin has one large bedroom with its own patio access, a living room with wood stove, convenient little kitchen and eating area plus a sleeping/storage loft and full bathroom. The cabin is approx. 700 ft2 plus the large covered deck plus and some additional open sun deck space. You would never know the cabin is on the land privately tucked in against the forest.
Also on the land is a beautiful wooden barn with a lean-to on each side. All wood for the construction of the barn has come off the property. Inside there are a couple good size wooden stalls, tack room plus lots of storage. The barn sits very close to the property as it was once owned by the same owner. A future owner would likely want to flip the barn doors to the back to make it more accessible with equipment. One would need to take down a few trees on the back side by the value from this would more than cover the cost to reno the barn and would be a nice value adder to the property in general. Please see maps.
This would be the ideal horse property/hobby farm. Right now, there is no irrigation happening and just one cut of hay coming off, but there is a licence for irrigation on the adjacent creek, Celista Creek, if one desired to have more than a few animals.
There are no local zoning bylaws opening up the possibilities for use. The land is also in the ALR and new regulations allow two dwellings and greater flexibility on these dwellings allowing rentals. One could build their dream home or cabin on it and keep this as a nice little income maker or for guests.
The lifestyle enjoyed here for recreation is hard to match with easy access to the lake and several FSR roads nearby to explore the backcountry. Adjacent and nearby properties consist of larger acreages, your immediate neighbor is a winery . . . a nice afternoon escape possible to their tasting room.
The very attractive entry price allows for new owner to set up their own driveway (most likely off Line 17 Road/adjacent to power lines), establish a new well, and clearing a new access to barn—contact listing REALTOR® for more details.

The North Shuswap is made of a string of lakeside communities—Lee Creek, Scotch Creek, Celista, Magna Bay, St. Ives, and Seymour with a year-round population of approx. 3,500 and man more vacation home visitors.
The North Shuswap truly is an unparalleled paradise. Mild winters, warm/hot summers, long autumns and short winters make for a perfect BC lifestyle. Rainy periods last hours, not days or weeks and then the sun is out again.
A long growing season means that gardeners are some of the happiest people around here. Vineyards (the most northerly in the province), nectarines, apples, cherries, pears, peaches and parsnips grow throughout the area. Local farms produce excellent beef and lamb.
Everything faces the lake and it is the main preoccupation although the inland acreages are its best kept secret. The cares of the world drift by, maybe overhead in a jet trail, maybe along the Trans-Canada Highway on the other side of the lake. But they don’t make their presence felt here.

Although the main draw is the lake the moderate climate of the North Shuswap and geographic variety with rivers, creeks, small backcountry lakes, FSR roads and an elevated inland plateau offers numerous year-round recreational opportunities.
