Private 316 acre estate only 7 minutes to town & all amenities. Many layers of value with 70 acres of productive hay lands, cattle grazing permit, subdivision potential & Crown land on 3 sides. 4 bedroom, 3 bath 3,400 ft2 home with recent upgrades. Tons of wildlife.
Truly one of the nicest estate properties in the 100 Mile House area. This sprawling 316 acre estate is incredibly private at the end of a long driveway. When visiting the property you’ll get a true rural country estate feeling with a back to nature atmosphere, although the property is conveniently located only a 2-minute drive off Highway 97, or a 7-minute drive to downtown 100 Mile House. This is without question one of the best-selling features of the property, its convenient access to the high school and elementary school, Save on Foods and Safeway, pharmacies, hospital and 24-hour emergency room, and modern ambulance and fire stations. This well-maintained country estate also has multiple layers of value with productive hay lands, cattle grazing permit, subdivision potential and Crown land on 3 sides. This property is also completely outside the ALR.
This property has had recent upgrades as of Spring 2020 like a new furnace, new hot water tank, new pressure tank for the water, new exterior paint, and pavers on the driveway.
This property is fully fenced and cross-fenced allowing for animals to be conveniently pastured in several separate areas around the property. There is approximately 70 acres of productive hay field which produced 400 large round bales this season. The fields are not irrigated, however when the REALTOR® visited the property at the end of August the fields had retained excellent soil moisture which was apparent in the quality of hay growth. Attached to the land is a grazing permit allowing for 37 cow/calf pairs plus 2 bulls. The permit area is conveniently located right out the back door of the property so there is no trucking of any animals here, just kick the cows out in the spring and open the gates in the fall.
Another incredible selling features of this estate is the privacy and recreational opportunities offered by the property with it being surrounded on 3 sides by Crown land. This property would make an incredible equestrian estate with plenty of feed and access to endless kilometres of riding right out the back door. If you’re into ATVing, snowmobiling or hunting this property is the perfect spot to indulge in your favourite past time. It should also be mentioned that the current owners are not hunters and have left the property as a true wildlife sanctuary for the last 40 years, which has resulted in common sightings of moose, deer, bears etc. If you explore the property and the surrounding Crown land on Google Earth you’ll notice that directly to the west there are several small lakes to explore with your fly rod.
The property is well serviced with power, septic tank, drilled well with submerged pump, excellent drinking water, propane and cellular service. In addition to this there is reliable satellite television. The home has fireplaces, wood stove and electric baseboard heating.
Although the 3,400 square foot home was built in 1981 there is absolutely no deferred maintenance here. The home has been lovingly attended to over the years with renovations and recent upgrades including a new Lennox propane furnace installed in 2019, a new electric hot water tank installed in 2019 and a new well water holding tank installed in 2019. Recent servicing to the electrical panel. This four bedroom, three bathroom home has a two car garage, old barn circa 1928, 2 hay sheds and a fenced yard around the home which is excellent for pets.

100 Mile House was originally known as Bridge Creek House, named after the creek running through the area. Its origins as a settlement go back to the time when Thomas Miller owned a collection of ramshackle buildings serving the traffic of the gold rush as a resting point for travellers moving between Kamloops and Fort Alexandria, which was 158 km (98 miles) north of 100 Mile House farther along the HBC Brigade Trail. It acquired its current name during the Cariboo Gold Rush where a roadhouse was constructed in 1862 at the 100 mile mark up the Old Cariboo Road from Lillooet.
In 1930 Lord Martin Cecil left England to come to 100 Mile House and manage the estate owned by his father, the 5th Marquess of Exeter. The estate's train stop on the Pacific Great Eastern (now CNR) railway is to the west of town and called Exeter. The town, which at the time consisted of the roadhouse, a general store, a post office, telegraph office and a power plant, had a population of 12. The original road house burned down in 1937.
