    Description

    Sharpe Lake Ranch comprises 741 acres of farm land adjacent to Sharpe Lake and a 16,270 hectare Crown range that supports 1,883 AUMs. This stunning property is a dream location for a new or current rancher, or an investor looking to grow/diversify their investment portfolio.

    Featuring nine road accessible titles, the land is largely flat with approximately 250 acres of productive hayland. Current operations support 350 cow/calf pairs and has in place all the necessary infrastructure, including a 1,800 ft2 workshop with overhead doors and concrete floor, corrals, loading chute, cattle squeeze, maternity pens, calving shed, stackyards and fencing/cross-fencing throughout the ranch. This is truly a unique and well-functioning operation. All of the infrastructure has been meticulously thought through to enhance the ranch’s overall efficiency and utility.

    The fencing on the Crown range is in good shape and features cross-fencing which dissects the main body of the range allowing a rancher to control the grazing locations of their cattle during the summer months.

    In addition to a turnkey cattle operation, the property itself is picturesque and offers endless activities for a new owner and their family to truly enjoy all the benefits of rural life. Surrounded by rolling hills, a calm and quiet lake, numerous hiking trails and the winding Bonaparte River that snakes and meanders through the property there are endless recreational activities at your doorstep. Enjoy your downtime by taking a horseback/ATV ride through the sprawling property or adjacent Crown land; go for a swim in the lake only steps from the residence; fish for rainbow trout off your dock; have a lakeside BBQ/bonfire with friends and family while watching the sunset—if you can dream it you can do it.

    The residence features nearly 1,000 feet of lakefrontage, and beautiful views of both the lake and surrounding property. Inside the home are 2 bedrooms, a 3-piece washroom and open kitchen/living room. The house has had a new roof installed, and other additional upgrades. During the colder months the wood heater provides a pleasant ambiance, and radiates warmth throughout the home. Outside you will find a deck that wraps around and is the perfect spot for looking out over the lake having a morning coffee or a drink in the evening.

    As an added option, there is an additional adjacent ¼ section (160 acres) with a beautiful log home if you wish to expand this listing. The property is fenced, and has a barn and covered storage building. This property could be utilized as an secondary residence for family, guest or ranch hands. The 1,600 ft2 home has seen considerable renovation and is both charming and spacious. There are some cleared areas of production on the ¼ section, but additional lands may be cleared and put into production as needed.

    Area Data

    The Interlakes, also known as the Interlakes District, is a geographic region of the Interior of British Columbia located along and around the Interlakes Highway between 100 Mile House on Highway 97 and Little Fort on the North Thompson River. The area is a subregion of the Cariboo and includes the communities of Bridge Lake and Lac des Roches.

    Provincial billboards promoting the area show it as being bounded by Canim Lake, Lac des Roches, Young Lake and Green Lake, with Highway 97 (the Cariboo Highway) and Canim Lake Road as its western and northwestern limits. The area contains over 1,600 households, most of which are spread along the Highway 24 corridor from Lone Butte to Bridge Lake. Another interpretation from the Cariboo Regional District includes Sheridan Lake and Deka Lake.
