    Named “Saddle Mountain”, for the beautiful mountain that rises above it, this 807-acre ranch on 6 titles offers a perfect opportunity for an off-grid, income producing lifestyle in a beautiful, private, remote location, with great mountain views on the edge of the wilderness. The ranch was developed as a buffalo ranch by a previous owner who spared no expense for himself and his guests to enjoy the wilderness setting in privacy and total comfort.

    The 3,000 ft2, 3 bdrm, 3-bathroom Lindal Cedar home is well built totally finished, nicely appointed, super comfortable and with heated ceramic tile floors, solar power, kitchen, office, laundry room, battery room, storage room. Top-of-the-line hot water heating system and appliances and wood heat from a beautiful Finnish soapstone heater. It is off-grid living at its finest with a 48-volt solar system, inverter, batteries and backup generator.

    Improvements include a 1,200 ft2 workshop with separate inverter, and battery system wired for 220 for welding hay-barn, machine shed, and numerous corrals. The Kubota diesel generator is housed 200 metres from the house in its own insulated room attached to the 30 by 40 foot shop.

    Approximate 60’ by 120’ steel machinery shed for hay or equipment storage with railing enclosure to keep livestock out. Most of the perimeter and cross fencing are page wire buffalo fence plus a new log fence for bale storage.

    There are currently 530 acres of sub-irrigated, hay producing land with potential for more to be brought into production.

    This ranch is offered conjunction with the Lessard Lake Ranch, and although listed separately, the opportunity to purchase both and to acquire the range permit that is currently with the Lessard Lake Ranch should be given serious consideration.

    The Dean River Valley between Anahim Peak to the west and the Ilgachuz and Itcha Ranges to the east is one of the great valleys of the Chilcotin. It is a wildlife paradise with moose, caribou, wolves and bears ducks, geese, swans, pelicans, and upland birds.
