    Description

    Escape to your own private paradise on 78 acres, surrounded by Crown land on 3 sides. Nestled amidst the breathtaking landscape, this remarkable property offers a haven of tranquility and adventure for outdoor enthusiasts and or those seeking the homestead lifestyle.

    As you explore this property you will discover undulating land with plenty of flat ground and scenic benches; perfect spots to envision your dream cabin. On the land is a recently constructed 12' x 16' building, thoughtfully erected by the owner and originally intended for a tack shed, feed shed, or tool shed or with a touch of creativity it could easily be transformed into a cozy cabin, providing a haven of comfort amidst the wilderness.

    Also, on the land is a old homestead, well setup outhouse and an off-grid shower structure.

    The property boasts an abundance of shade trees providing a refreshing respite during hot summer days. Look ahead and you'll find yourself imagining the future potential of these medium-sized trees as they grow into valuable timber (the land has been partially logged by a former owner). Just below the old homestead is a spring-fed dug out/pond.

    Wildlife enthusiasts will be delighted by the diverse range of big game species that call this area home: moose, whitetail, mule deer, black bear and a substantial number of magnificent elk frequent the property.

    Beyond its natural wonders, the property has good access to maintained quad and snowmobiles trails nearby.

    The zoning speaks to allowing a campground, a rare allowance in and around BC. Contact the Regional District of the Kootenay Boundary for full details. The land would also make an ideal homestead site . . . the current owner recently seeded around the old barn site, slash piles and other open areas of the land in hay and it caught on well. The property for sure holds potential for running your own herd of cattle during the summer months, offering a taste of the agricultural lifestyle. You will also find wild strawberries, wild blueberries and huckleberries. Add a side business of taking in some campers and you have a few potential income streams.

    Finally, and not to be understated, the property boasts awe-inspiring views that will take your breath away. Gaze upon the majesty of nature, bask in the serenity of the landscape, and feel a profound sense of connection to the world around you.
