    Have you been looking for a trophy waterfront acreage that has no zoning allowing you the possibility to develop into a RV resort, campground, residential development, glamping resort or eco village? This is the one you’ve been looking for.

    Located only about 12 km west of the City of Nelson, this 62-acre property has approximately 1 km waterfront on the Kootenay River. A small creek flows down the western boundary of the property and pours into the Kootenay River. Good level access to the property is off Kays Road, with the acreage sloping down towards the river in a series of three distinct benches. The topography of the parcel is ideal for development allowing for almost every acre of the property to enjoy a view of the water. There’s a series of older logging roads throughout the acreage which will function as a base to further develop from.

    Keep in mind that in this section of the Kootenay River the river is approximately a half a kilometre wide and seems closer to a lake than it does a river. The river is flat calm and extremely well known for water sport recreation and its fishery. It would only take 15 minutes in a boat to head upriver to have dinner in Nelson. The property is well timbered with some mature trees and younger secondary growth. This parcel is totally private and located on a very quiet road. The climate in the area is spectacular with summer temperatures in the 30-35°C range. The property has the water and growing conditions perfect for gardening or a self-sufficient lifestyle.

    Properties with no zoning are becoming increasingly challenging to find. A preliminary subdivision layout of 40 river-view lots was considered by current owners but so far has not been taken to the next step. We often receive calls from individuals looking to set up an RV resort, eco village or glamping type resort, but generally properties suitable for this type of use are difficult to find. This property checks all the boxes you would be looking for, physical beauty, privacy, power to the lot line, good access, close to town, no zoning, views from every location, water frontage and easy to develop.
