    Description

    147+ mostly clear and useable acres overlooking Galena Bay in the Selkirk Mountains around Upper Arrow Lake.

    The property has good year-round access via Hill Creek Road and is less than 10 minutes to Galena Bay Ferry Terminal and walking distance to the lake. Hill Creek meanders through the land with a nice tree buffer along its corridor.

    The property would make a great hobby/small farm with lots of flat land and then it rises up towards the back/north where it is all sloping towards the south with excellent sun exposure and offering beautiful views out to Galena Bay. The land would also make an epic recreational property. Just above the land is a Forest Service Road (FSR) offering easy access into the wildlife rich backcountry. The property borders on Crown land on the west and a small section in the northwest corner which extends down to Beaton Arm on Upper Arrow Lake.

    There are a few outbuildings, older barn, and a deregistered trail on the land but it is mostly land value.

    GST is applicable on price.
