    154+ acres in the Shuswap with excellent agricultural potential, a couple small ponds/seam of water, and a recently drilled well. The land has recently been cleared, aside from lots of hardwood trees and some younger evergreens dotted throughout and much thought and attention was given to setting up a few prime building options with privacy off the road and views of the Notch Hill Valley.

    The property is zoned for two single family dwellings making it ideal for an extended family. The road bisects the land which would allow for one home to be set up on each side of the road for optimal privacy and the appearance of a separate property. From a market perspective the demand for this type of offering with two homes on one title has grown as prices for independent titles have soared. Basically, allowing owners to share in the land portion of the purchase and get a lot more value.

    The property has multiple access points off Hilltop Road with gates in place and driveways cut into building site options. One of these sites certainly stands out from the others with untouched grass growth and the ideal blend of evergreen trees and hardwoods around the home site and of course a recently drilled well. Just north of this site is a nice seam of water with a couple surface ponds. This would be an amazing horse property or ideal for a small livestock operation.

    Most of the land is flat with some gently and southward sloping land. There are lots of trails and established roadways that would make ideal recreational trails—Nordic, mountain biking, etc.

    There is easy access to Highway 1; only 2.3 km down the hill and then a couple kilometres to either Blind Bay or Sorrento.
