    All the features you’ve been looking for, water, agricultural fields, backing onto Crown land and an excellent climate suitable for a self-sufficient lifestyle. This 310-acre heritage farm in south-central BC is a private oasis, but only 4 km to the highway and close to the US border. This property was settled in 1894 and established as a dairy farm. The old original ice-house still exists. The farm is intact with access via a public road and power to the property. All merchantable timber on the property is scheduled to be logged starting at the beginning of August 2023. The logging activities will improve grazing and access to the hillside portions of the property.

    The property encompasses the entire valley running east/west, which maximizes sun exposure. The water supply is a registered spring, and there is a second water licence for irrigation, allowing the use of Lind Creek which runs through the property. 105 acres is in the ALR, with lots of hay fields and also includes the homestead. The property is fenced and cross-fenced. The remaining 200+ acres have subdivision potential, and is mostly fenced. The fact that this property has no zoning opens it up for almost any possible use.

    The large dairy barn is 33’ x 75’ with a 30’ high loft. There is a double-bay tractor shed with insulated workshops on either side. There are 2 other very large sheds. The well-built 1,200 ft2 house includes 2 bedrooms plus a den, and has a full basement. From the front deck which looks south over the hay fields, there are lots of birds and potential wildlife to watch. The second dwelling, a 2-story chalet design, is perfect for summer rentals or could be upgraded for year-round use. The 60' x 30' aluminum tubular rib framed Quonset has lots of potential. Generally, the buildings on the property are livable but some TLC could bring them back to their full splendor.

    For those outdoor enthusiasts, the possibilities are endless. This property backs onto an enormous swath of Crown land which is teeming with wildlife. Your only neighbours are the moose, deer, bears and elk that call this valley home. Would make a quiet and natural retreat, or a great place to raise 1 or more families. GST applicable.
