    Description

    Located along the southern shore of the highly desirable Sheridan Lake this 5.4 acre lakefront parcel is a rare find. It has been owned by the same family since 1960, who have thoroughly enjoyed what the property, lake and surrounding area has to offer. The property is freehold, and backs onto Crown land ensuring peace and quiet with minimal future development for many years to come.

    The road leading directly to the property is a former forestry road that is wide and easy to navigate. During the winter months, the road leading directly to the doorstep of the cabin is not plowed and as a result the property is seasonally accessible by vehicle. To reach the property during the wintertime a snowmobile can be used along Sheridan West Forest Services Road, or across the frozen lake. Given the lack of vehicle access on the south side of the lake, you will never be obstructed nor disturbed by traffic. Calm, peace and serenity is what this property offers, it is an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and a warm and inviting place to spend time creating memories with family and friends.

    The cozy and rustic 792 ft2 cabin offers a low maintenance lifestyle and allows you to keep your focus on the outdoors. With 2 bedrooms, a mudroom, which is spacious enough for another bed, kitchen and living room, there is room for guests to sleep soundly and comfortably. The cabin has limited solar power with electricity supplied by gas generator. For heat, there is a wood burning fireplace constructed using the bricks from the FIRST EVER liquor store in Vancouver, as well as a wood burning stove. As you step out onto the sundeck which neatly wraps around the cabin you are greeted with a stunning view of Sheridan Lake. Surrounded by trees the backyard is a private oasis and the perfect setting for a quiet night, or for entertaining and sharing stories around a bonfire.

    During the daytime recreational activities are plentiful. The Interlakes region is known as the ‘Fishing Highway’ and Sheridan Lake is famous for its trophy trout. After a morning coffee, step out onto your boat and set off. You never know if your next cast will break a local record (official record is 17 pounds but stories have told of trout up to 25 pounds). Apart from lake activities, the surrounding landscape has 208 km of mapped and signed trails. These trails are perfect for hiking, ATVing, mountain biking, horseback riding etc., and in the winter months be sure to strap on the cross-country skis or hop on a snowmobile to explore all that the area has to offer.

    The current owner has provided a list of items that they will agree to leave behind so that a new owner can have turnkey access, and so the very first stay is as pleasurable and stress free as possible. For further details on what is included in the purchase price do not hesitate to reach out.

    The cabin and lot have endless potential. Keep it as-is or renovate and make it yours! No matter what your goals or dreams may be, this property will always have you coming back for more.
