    Description

    Developer/Investor opportunity. Lot A is a 57 acre property abutting the Spur Valley Golf Resort. See the mapping section of this listing for the recent survey showing the subdivision area. The owner has received approval from the ALR to exclude the property from the ALR and therefore opening up the property for residential development. Contact the listing REALTOR® for a copy of the ALR approval letter. The property has two separate zoning designations affecting it, R1 Single Family Residential and R5 Multi Family Residential. The R1 Single Family Residential has a minimum parcel size requirement of 5,974.2 square feet and the R5 Multi Family Residential has a minimum parcel size requirement of 1.24 acres. A developer would need to decide what they feel is the most marketable parcel size to develop, but the density allows for over 200 lots to be created. Located just 15 minutes north of Radium Hot Springs and the main arterial route to Alberta, this property is only 3 hours from Calgary. This is a highly sought after area.

    Spur Valley is a beautiful and unique area with a central location in the Columbia Valley making it extremely desirable for golf enthusiasts and families alike. The golf course is a beautiful 9-hole golf course with pristine conditions and fantastic greens. The property itself has excellent access only 300 metres from Highway 95 down Luxor Station Road. The property has been logged in recent years with all merchantable timber being removed. The topography is generally flat with some smaller rolling hills. The soil base is solid and development of roads and building sites would be a relatively straightforward process.

    Directly across from Spur Valley Golf Resort on the east side of Highway 95 is a subdivision of approximately 100 half acre lots. This subdivision is completely sold out and provides good evidence of strong demand for residential lots in this area. The subject property is more desirable than this neighbouring subdivision as many of the lots on the subject property would front directly onto the golf course, and other lots would have significantly better views to the west over the Columbia River Valley. The property is located nearby the glacier-fed Luxor River. Peace and tranquility aren't hard to find as you stroll around the property or while venturing out on the trails and roads that surround the property.

    History

    The name, ‘Edgewater’ comes from its being on the edge of the waters of the Columbia River. It was originally founded as a farming community before World War I. Many of its residents were from England, and returned there after the war, causing the community to suffer a decline in population. Edgewater has since recovered, and the area's economy includes forestry, agriculture, and tourism.

    The townsite of Edgewater was begun as the service and settlement centre of the Columbia Valley Orchard project. Settlers would arrive with expectations of a rural British utopia, and so Edgewater was created in the image of an idealized English country village. The section of the irrigation system that was completed in 1913 is the basis for the irrigation system still used outside of Edgewater today.
