    Description

    I am very pleased to offer this must see, one of a kind, renovated, riverfront dovetail log home. Built in 1896, this original Norwegian homestead has been beautifully restored, with permaculture and sustainability in mind. The interior of this small home has been thoughtfully re-modelled to maximize comfort and green design. High-end appliances, like a WOLF range and hood fan, an ESSE cookstove, as well as Italian plastering, and a top-of-the-line towel warmer, have been paired with programmable in-floor heating, and an on-demand hot water system plumbed and set-up to take pre-heated water from the cookstove’s wood boiler and/or solar hot-water collectors if one chooses to add them. Additional features include custom, locally crafted, vertical grain fir cabinets with hand-forged hardware, built-in bookshelves, and dimmable lighting throughout. The energy efficient, sustainable home is complete with a kitchen/dining area, a bedroom, livingroom/office, utility room, bathroom and private soaker tub area. You can even enjoy an outdoor heated shower while taking in the sights and sounds of the rainforest. Every detail was considered in the interior finishings maximizing on space and storage with floor to ceiling shelving. The home can also be monitored from afar making it the perfect place to spend your summers or leaving for extended periods of time.

    This 8 acres of property is calling you outside. It sits in a year-round sunny location and features a breathtaking riverfront view armoured with rip-rap put in by Highways in 2018. The fertile soil and long growing season have resulted in a large, well established vegetable and berry garden as well as pear, apple, cherry, plum hazelnut and walnut trees. You can enjoy every inch of this property on an established walking trail through the surrounding forest or on the two cleared pastures ready for building, a hobby farm or just playing some games with family and friends.

    You won’t find another property like this. Settle into a self-sufficient lifestyle with the hard work already completed for you, or continue to build up your forever home in one of the multiple building sites all with equally impressive views. This is a “must see” home!

    Location

    2884 Mackenzie Highway 20 - Haganesborg, Bella Coola Valley

    Access

    Bella Coola can be accessed by road traveling West 477 km from Williams Lake. This scenic drive will take you across the Chilcotin Plateau, through Tweedsmuir Park and down “the hill” into the stunning Bella Coola Valley. You then travel alongside the Atnarko and Bella Coola Rivers into the communities of Hagensborg and Bella Coola, ending at the Government wharf.

    This property is on the north side of the highway approximately 15 km east of the community of Hagensborg. Bella Coola can also be accessed by boat or by the scenic Discovery Coast Ferries as well. Pacific Coast also makes 1-hour scheduled flights to and from Vancouver.

    Either way you get here, it is sure to be a beautiful and scenic adventure.

    Area Data

    The Bella Coola community is remote in nature and contains a population of approximately 2,000 people. The primary geographical structure of the community, both in terms of physical structures and population distribution is the long, narrow valley. The Chilcotin Highway 20 stretches from the Government wharf (on the Pacific Ocean) through the extent of the populated portion of the valley, through Hagensborg and Firvale before climbing to the Chilcotin Plateau. The entire population of the community lives on either side of this road or very near to it.

    Both Bella Coola and Hagensborg have essential services including retail outlets for groceries and hardware, gas stations and repair shops, Canada Post offices, gift shops, and places to purchase fishing/hunting licences. Banking can be done at the Williams Lake & District Credit Union in Bella Coola; ATMs are located at the Hagensborg Shop Easy, Thunderbird Store, the Credit Union and the Bella Coola General Hospital. The Bella Coola General Hospital has a walk-in clinic and a pharmacy. Bella Coola also has a gym, an outdoor rink, an outdoor public pool, an organic market as well as numerous arts, gifts and coffee shops.

    Recreation

    In the Bella Coola Valley, you will find an abundance of fresh water, fresh air, wildlife and outdoor recreation. During the winter months, you can enjoy cross-country skiing, snow machining, snowboarding or skiing on the local hill in Tweedsmuir Park, skating at the outdoor rink or taking part in the weekly volleyball and basketball games. Summers are filled with hiking the many trails, kayaking or fishing in the rivers or ocean, horse riding, biking, rock climbing or just taking a dip in the refreshing pools along the river. There is something here for every outdoor enthusiast.

    Belarko Bear viewing has also been created by BC Parks. The station is located at a prime grizzly feeding spot on the Atnarko River. The station is open and staffed from mid-August to mid-October, when bears are active along the river banks. The Great Bear Rainforest on the central coast of British Columbia is a world renowned wilderness eco-tour destination. It is one of the world’s few remaining old-growth temperate rainforests. It is also the home of coastal wolves, black bears, grizzlies and the unique Kermode “Spirit Bear.”

    In recent years, the mountainous terrain around (and accessible from) the Bella Coola Valley has become a publicized destination for heli-skiing, with a number of skiing movies filmed in the area, and local companies advertising access to 1.5 million acres (6,100 km2) of terrain.

    Bella Coola offers a well-known music festival on the third weekend of July as well as a rodeo on July long weekend.
