    A quality and scenic acreage in the West Kootenay community of Burton. Beautiful 360-degree mountain views.

    The land here is entirely useable. As you move away from McCormack Rd the land is initially flat and then it starts to rise approx. halfway back. There there are some amazing build sites tucked into the trees and looking out over the pasture land. Overall there are approximately 8.5 acres of mature and beautiful forest toward the back of the land with the predominant species Douglas fir. The front 11-12 acres along McCormack Rd has more open land / meadow with some younger trees, mostly pine dotted throughout the meadow.

    Access to the property is directly off McCormack Rd, there is also a quiet lane along its northern border, maintained by the province providing more convenient and cost effective access to a house site set towards the back of the land.

    This is the ideal location and property for a small hobby farm / ranch and would make an amazing recreational property with great fishing, hiking, hunting, and motorsports on the many FSR roads in the area.

    The versatile zoning allows one home plus a guest house (up to 968 ft2), B&B, virtually any agricultural venture, kennel, home business, and more.

    NOTE: Adjacent 10+ acres with a 2,500 ft2 log home and older log barn is also for sale by the same owner for $620,000. Package price of $925,000 for land and House. Seller wants to sell adjacent land with house prior to this bare land offering.

    Before European contact, Burton was known as Xaieken, a large village of the Sinixt First Nations People.

    This historic trading town got its modern name in 1895 when the Burton Brothers established it as Burton City. The Hudson’s Bay Company actively traded with the First Nations for furs, using this area of the lake as a meeting place. At this time the gold miners also had their camps and boat launch in the area when the gold rush of Caribou Creek started. In 1908 the road was built from Burton to Nakusp, and in the 20’s the Monashee Pass Road to Vernon was opened. After the miners began to leave, logging became the driving industry in the valley and now tourism and recreation is growing. The original townsite and much of its First Nation’s history was submerged when the Keenleyside Dam flooded the area in 1968. A new town site was established on higher ground at that time. The old town site had four stores, gas stations, cafe, school, playing fields, a community hall, a large federal government wharf, a hotel with a pub and three churches. The old townsite was north of the mouth of Cariboo Creek with farms north, south and east of the townsite.
