    Description

    This 6.69 acre property features 220 feet of prime waterfront tucked away from the crowds in a quiet bay at Lighthouse Point. A perfect, unoccupied, and level building site immediately above the high-water mark, offers panoramic views with walk-out lake access. You can live in the on-site bungalow and enjoy the views, along with all the lake offers, while you build your own dream home. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a most desirable waterfront property on Christina Lake.

    Approximately one acre of prime land lies between West Lake Drive and Christina Lake. The land is gently sloping, forested with large western red cedar and western larch, with a perfect cleared building site in the centre of the property. The 220 feet of waterfront is mostly deep water, ideal for boat access and includes a shallow area with an attractive sandy beach where the kids can play.

    Christina Lake is known as the warmest treed lake in British Columbia. Boating and water sports are spectacular in the summer. Awake to the chatter of chipmunks and squirrels, enjoy the sunrise and warmth of the early morning sun, water ski or wakeboard in the afternoon and go for a paddle in your canoe as the moon rises in the evening while the rest of the family enjoys a campfire by the beach. Fishing is most productive in the fall however, rainbow trout, kokanee, large and small mouth bass can be landed year-round.

    History

    The property was originally a camp built in 1929 by Dr. Murray before there was road access. It was purchased from Dr. Murry by D.D. Morris in 1954. He was a Cominco executive, becoming VP of the company and President of West Kootenay Power. A number of Cominco executives purchased the property in the 1950s resulting in the area being nick-named “Little Tadanac” (Tadanac being a wealthy neighborhood in Trail).
