    This property presents over one treed acre alongside extensive Williston Lake. With plentiful options on the lake and Crown land, this surrounding ‘backyard’ offers immediate access to explore, whether by boat, recreational vehicle, horseback, pedal, or on foot. A leisurely stroll through the woodlands and lakeshore, with camera or paintbrush in hand may be more your style to ‘breathe in’ and capture the surrounding wilderness.

    Options to build a dream home, cabin, or a recreational pad open the ability to enjoy this wilderness setting. Yet, the property is just 30 minutes from Hudson’s Hope. All amenities for keeping the pantry stocked, accessing vital services including a hospital, or simply heading out for the farmers market, annual baseball and soccer tournaments, the rodeo, folk festival, or fall fair, are a great means to join this vibrant community.

    Access to this property is via a public maintained gravel road. If desired, a septic permit and water supply would require developing. Power is conveniently nearby at the lot line.
