    Gorgeous riverfront acreage in the North Okanagan; located only a couple kilometres from Mabel Lake.

    The property is comprised of 2 titles for a combined 446 acres with approximately 1.5 km of scenic frontage on the Shuswap River. The land is split by Mabel Lake Road with 225 acres on the river side of the road (ALR) and 120 acres of hillside (bordering on Crown) which is not in the ALR and zoned for 18 acre lots. If subdivided these acreages would make amazing view lots as there is a nice elevated bench and good access from some logging done 10+ years ago. Some mature timber also remains untouched on the hillside. The river side of the land has approximately 100 acres in hay and an additional 20 acres of pasture that was cleared and stumps removed. Last year it produced seven hundred 1,250-pound bales. On the other side of the river there is approximately 10 acres of mature timber.

    A few years ago a 10,000 ft2 steel hay storage/machine shed was built. A prime elevated building site is tucked off the road amidst some trees and looks out over this structure and onto hay land.

    This land is a true wildlife sanctuary, offering a breathtaking setting enriched by the sights and sounds of migratory birds. With exceptional river access, this property is a nature lover's dream. During the summer months, after the high water subsides, the property even features a delightful little beach area. This idyllic spot is perfect for swimming, fishing, or boating a few kilometres out to Mabel Lake, providing endless opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy this magical setting.

    This property is truly versatile, making it perfect for those seeking a horse property with ample grazing and riding opportunities, or for those interested in running a few cattle and indulging in ranching activities. In addition to its inherent appeal, the property boasts incredible potential for subdivision and expanding its already abundant seeded hay land. With the hard work of clearing and stumping complete, this presents an excellent opportunity for value addition.
