    Description

    Located between Little Fort and Barriere Shadow Creek Ranch consists of 2 titles, one title is 45 acres and the other is 145 acres totalling 190 acres. The majority of the property is on the North Thompson River, with 1.5 miles of river frontage and a creek running through the property. The land is used for grazing and hay production. The owner leases the fields to two neighbouring ranches from May until September for cattle grazing and pasturing for horses. The lease rate is $10,000 per year. In addition to some supplemental income the lease for grazing also allows the owner to qualify for farm status and low farm property taxes. The property has been newly fenced and the main house and garden area has 4-plank wood fencing.

    The home is a completely renovated hand hewn log home with a cedar board and batten addition, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and laundry room. The home is 2,500 ft2 with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The main living area is an open concept 30 x 40 ft floor plan with vaulted ceilings with large beams. An oversized river rock fireplace dominates the great room. All the plumbing and electrical is new. A newer septic system and water purification system is in place. The domestic water is provided from a drilled well. The home is heated by a new pellet furnace, includes electrical baseboard heat in the bedrooms, heated tile floors in the bathrooms, and heat from the fireplace.

    On the exterior you’ll find a wood fenced 100 x 200 ft outdoor arena with cattle chutes. There are 2 x 5 acre horse paddocks with four large horse shelters. A new detached cedar carriage house is completed to include an oversized double car garage which has been converted into a health center where the current owner sees her clients. The space includes a sauna, office, bath and workout room and would be a perfect space for a home based business idea. The upstairs includes a one bedroom suite, all completed with first class finishings. There is a large outdoor fire pit. The property is gated with a custom wood gate. A large mature vegetable garden is in place, 8 fruit trees have been planted and a large old apple tree produces barrels of apples. Also a small greenhouse helps extend the growing season. The property has water rights on the creek offering a 400 acre feet. Although the property has been used primarily for pasture in recent years, this property can be hayed, offering a minimum of 2 cuts per year and easily supporting around 80 head of cattle.

    Other outdoor features include storage shed, covered picnic area, fencing and cross fencing, heated stock waterer, irrigation pond with water licence, livestock loafing sheds and more. Kamloops is about 1 hour away, Barriere 20 minutes, and services at Little Fort are only a 10-minute drive.

    Area Data

The town offers a great medical clinic, good schools, festivals, numerous shops, restaurants, motels, professional services (basically all the amenities you would ever require), except those who crave the big box stores which can be found in Kamloops and less than 1 hour away.

    Kamloops (less than an hour away)

    The nearest major city is Kamloops. Kamloops is the largest city in the Thompson Nicola region with a population of approximately 90,000 it is has a well-recognized hospital, airport, Thompson Rivers University, hundreds of professional offices, and a good mix of chain and big box stores and unique shops and restaurants. The city and surrounding area is home to an incredibly diverse landscape of sagebrush-covered hills, ravines, wide open grasslands, rugged mountains, forested valleys and pristine lakes. As a semi-arid ecosystem, our natural environment provides habitat for many unique plants and animals. Nowhere else will you find championship golf courses, renowned mountain biking trails, world-class skiing, dozens of lakes for fishing and boating, and more. By road, by rail or by air, Kamloops is easy to get to. Four major highways come together, providing convenient access from major centres such as Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Seattle.

    Adams Lake

    Adams Lake is a large, deep (second deepest in BC), coldwater lake. The lake's upper reaches lie in the northern Monashee Mountains, while its lower end penetrates the Shuswap Highland. The lake is well known for offering prime boating and is 63 km long and ranges from 1.6 to 3.2 km wide. Water flows into the lake though many tributaries, most notably the Upper Adams River, Momich River, and Bush Creek. The water drains from the lake into the Lower Adams River which is home to a very large and famous sockeye salmon run which attracts many visitors to the region each year. Most of the shoreline of Adams Lake lacks any sort of development, partially due to the geography of the shoreline, which is mostly sheer rock faces or steep, stony beaches. A few beautiful and natural beaches exist as well some man-made sandy beaches have been constructed for public use.

    Recreation

    Although the majority of the surrounding properties are agricultural in nature this property sits in a recreational paradise. Nor far away is access to hundreds of miles of FSR roads to explore with a number of small lakes for fishing, great hunting and hiking, Adams Lake and a boat launch is only a few kilometres down the road where you have prime boating and fishing. In winter the area has great snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and Sun Peaks Alpine Resort is only around an hour away.
