    Description

    Situated on a quiet country road, Canamere Farms sets the standard for horse properties in the BC Interior. This 157-acre creekfront farm has been thoughtfully laid out by the owners over the last 26 years and checks all your boxes. With excellent access and a great location only 20 minutes south off the Trans-Canada Highway, or half an hour north to Highway 97, the property is less than an hour to the three major hubs of Salmon Arm, Vernon and Kamloops. There are also two smaller towns within half an hour, Chase to the north and Falkland to the south.

    The productive 25-acre hay field produces 2 cuts annually, with irrigation water provided by a water licence on Olsand Creek. The large mountainous watershed to the east of the property provides gravity-fed water to the farm, which is the irrigation setup everyone’s looking for. When it is gravity fed there’s no electrical or fuel bill for pumping water. A 15,000-gallon concrete tank sits adjacent to Olsand Creek, well above the farm where water licences are in place for irrigation and domestic uses. On a typical year the hay field will produce 60 to 80 tonnes. In addition to the hay fields there are fenced horse friendly grassy pastures varying in size, all with automatic heated waterers; the largest of which being 20 acres in size.

    The farm has four separate residences, which include the Main House, The Mobile, The Lounge, and The Cabin. All have their own septic systems. The main house is a charming 3 bedroom, 3 bath country home of approximately 2,650 square feet on three levels. The basement features a large seating area with recreation room, pool table and gas fireplace. The main floor features a sunken TV room, office and laundry, which leads up to the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is neat as a pin and includes a large central island, seating area with fireplace, stainless steel sink and appliances. It has been tastefully redone with clean lines and a bright open concept that takes in lots of natural light. The kitchen opens onto the large deck on the west side of the home which has an expansive view of the horse paddocks, hayfields and mountains.

    Whether you are looking to generate income from nightly rentals, long term tenancies, or as simply as accommodation for farm help, these additional self-contained residences are truly invaluable. “The Mobile” is a 12 x 50 ft manufactured home and authorized second residence which includes 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. “The Cabin” is a self-contained cabin/studio 18 x 32 ft in size. The Cabin, The Lounge, and The Mobile are all approximately 575 square feet. The Main House, The Cabin and The Lounge are all heated with an outdoor wood boiler that supplies hot water heating. The Cabin and The Lounge also has electric backup heaters, and The Mobile is heated by a wood stove and oil furnace. Each of these cabins has been tastefully equipped with country charm and are quite lovely.

    As we venture out to the yard it becomes apparent that the owners have designed the farm with both function and aesthetics in mind. In its hay day this 157-acre farm was a breeding and boarding centre that serviced the Alberta/BC Race Horse Industries for Standardbred and Thoroughbred. The farm is now a retirement home for show horses. Eight turnout pastures surround the main barn varying from 2 to 8 acres; all fenced with horse friendly fencing, all with automatic heated waterers and all-season shelters. The main barn is a 38 x 94 ft solidly build structure, including 12 stalls with an additional attached 50 ft diameter covered round pen, hayloft and fully contained living quarters dubbed “The Lounge.” The Lounge is a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom addition with kitchen, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The second barn dubbed “The Mare Motel” is 40 x 60 ft barn with 10 foaling stalls. Directly adjacent to this barn is six turnout paddocks with shelters and automatic, heated waterers for mares and foals. Rounding out the equestrian setup is four stallion paddocks with no common fence complete with shelters and automatic heated waterers.

    Additional outbuildings include storage sheds/buildings for hay, shavings and covered storage for equipment. For the handyman you’ve got everything you need in the 40 x 60 ft workshop with complete with 220 wiring giving you the option to run larger tools and equipment.

    This property has that classic farm look, and is the type of spread to make your friends jealous with. Undoubtedly, one of the best features of this property is Chase Creek, which meanders peacefully through the bottom section of the farm. The creek is home to a healthy population of wild rainbow trout you may want to explore with a fly rod. This property is bordered by Crown land and mountains on both the east and west side providing a playground for horseback riding, ATVing and snowmobiling. With a network of trails to explore imagine starting your day waking up, saddling up your horse, riding through the creek and out the back door of your property into the mountains for a day of exploration.

    A property such as this is difficult to find twice so don’t wait to contact the listing REALTOR® for more information or to book a time to go by for a look.
