    A true terrestrial paradise. This 5-acre property is a hobby farmer’s dream. Located on fertile soil the property has been meticulously manicured and developed to ensure food self-sustainability. The property is located on the gradual slope north of Lesser Fish Lake and is south orientated ensuring ample sunlight throughout the entire year. The property has excellent views of the lake and the wildlife, which frequents its shores. Lesser Fish Lake is a quiet lake with fishing opportunities. There is a boat launch and lake access immediately down the road from the property.

    The property has been segmented into gardens, hay fields, orchards, pasture, and greenhouses. There is also a ravine and wooded area on the eastern edge of the property adding to its diversity. Three old growth Douglas firs stand as impressive sentinels on the upper pasture of the property. The property has multiple barns and chicken coops for raising goats, horses, pigs, or cattle.

    The pastures have been cross-fenced to permit a rotational grazing program and the production of hay to help feed livestock over the winter. Presently the sellers are raising goats for milk, cheese and meat. The chicken coop houses both meat birds and laying hens ensuring a fresh supply of eggs daily. A water license, which pumps water from Lesser Fish Lake, provides irrigation ability for the gardens, fruit trees and hay fields.

    The property’s outdoor orchard has ample fruit trees and haskap bushes. The south facing land soaks up ample sunshine ensuring a bountiful harvest every year. The garden is fenced to prevent deer from accessing. A large assortment of fruits and vegetables are grown in the garden each year. The garden is close to the home and its water supply.

    The most unique feature of the property is the below ground greenhouse, which harnesses the suns heat and retains it using the earth as insulation. This greenhouse permits the growing of grapes and tropical fruit nearly year-round. There is an attached seacan, which provides storage and a place to start seedlings before transplanting them into the greenhouse, or garden.

    For storing the bounties grown on the property there is a buried, walk-in seacan with power. The seacan and the earth’s insulation ensure a cool, dry environment where produce, meat and other food articles may be safely stored for prolonged periods of time. This space may also be used to store equipment and tools.

    To the south of the home, situated on a precipice overlooking the lake, is a quaint 2-level cabin. The cabin is a cozy option for guests, or even for Airbnb rentals. The cabin has the basic essentials including a wood stove, sleeping quarters and eating area. The cabin provides a panoramic view of Lesser Fish Lake below.

    The main residence offers 2,200 ft2 and has been meticulously maintained since its construction in 1975. There is an attached double garage, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open living area, functional kitchen, solarium, deck and ample storage. This is the perfect home to raise a large and healthy family.

    This property is ideal for an aspiring hobby farmer looking to live a more self-sustainable existence. The property is turnkey and ready for its next chapter.

    Area Data

    The Interlakes, also known as the Interlakes District, is a geographic region of the Interior of British Columbia, located along and around the Interlakes Highway between 100 Mile House on BC’s Highway 97 and Little Fort on the North Thompson River. The area is a sub region of the Cariboo and includes the communities of Bridge Lake and Lac des Roches.

    Highway 24 is commonly referred to as the fishing highway and it is deserving of this title. Some of the best inland fishing in all of British Columbia is available to anglers on the many bodies of water dotting the landscape. There are literally hundreds of fish bearing lakes throughout the district.



    This area is known for some of the best small lake fishing in British Columbia so there are countless lakes to fish or explore within an hour’s drive of the property. Some are walk-in lakes and great for float tubes and fly fishing.

    Wildlife Viewing and Bird Watching

    The wildlife love the property, be prepared to see deer, moose, foxes, snowshoe hares, marmots, squirrels, beaver and otters. Birds include woodpeckers, bald eagles, great blue herons, owls including the great horned owl, hummingbirds, loons and many varieties of ducks. If you’re lucky you might see a mother mallard leading her baby ducklings in a line down to the lake or baby foxes playing amongst the trees. Wake up and see curious deer right outside your home, maybe even with a baby fawn. Keep your camera handy!

    Photography and Star Gazing


    Have you tried kayaking yet? This is an excellent form of exercise while taking in the area’s natural beauty.

    Canim Falls

    Canim Falls (40 km north of the property on good gravel road) has spectacular steep canyon walls composed of columnar lava rock. A short 1 km walk will bring you to 15 metre high Mahood Falls. Continue on the trail to view the 20-metre high Canim Falls, which is actually two falls split by a midstream island.

    Deception Falls

    Continue east from Canim Falls to the Wells Gray Provincial Park to access Deception Falls. About a 30-minute walk through a beautiful aspen forest. Perfect hike in the fall when the leaves are golden. If it’s a hot day, stop at Mahood Lake Provincial Park for a picnic or a swim.

    Lone Butte (approx. 30-minute drive)

    Climb to the top of Lone Butte which is actually a volcanic plug about 76 metres (250 feet) high for a great view of the whole area. The wooden water tower at Lone Butte is one of the last remnants from the days of steam trains. While you’re in Lone Butte, stop for lunch at one of the cafes.
