    If you are an outdoor enthusiast then this property has a bit of everything for you. You can literally kayak hike, fish, farm, bike or rock climb right out your door.

    This acreage is split into 3 separate sections; one startling Mackenzie Highway 20 with a 8-acre hay field and river frontage. This is the largest section and is very level on the south side of the highway but quite steep up the north side. This portion has level spots for building, farming or haying as well as some timber. The power is right at the lot line on this section.

    A smaller lot is accessible from Hammer Road and borders the Bella Coola River on the north side. This section has previously been logged but is fully treed offering mostly mature hemlock and cottonwood.

    All three sections offer amazing mountain views, excellent sun exposure, fresh water and road access. This is a prime location to build a riverfront family home or hobby farm in a beautiful, peaceful location.
