    Vistas from this property are nothing short of magnificent. The city of Grand Forks in its entirety, valleys, rivers, and mountains provide a kaleidoscope of breathtaking views—constantly changing as you ascend.

    Sweeping fields full of rustling grasses, shrubs, trees, and wildflowers are monitored by wheeling raptors and a busy multitude of other feathered avians. Undisturbed mature forests provide a natural haven for wildlife—white-tailed and mule deer, elk, moose, turkeys, bears, and grouse. Networks of hiking, biking, and ATV trails spiral from the road providing easy access to explore and revel in solitude and peace.

    Upon reaching the residence you are greeted with lush lawns, flower beds, lilac shrubs, and fruit trees. With the utmost of privacy, a quiet solitude surrounds this home.

    Entrance is gained from a covered wrap-around deck where the interior gives way to a large dining and living area, full of south-facing sunny windows. Given the amount of ‘indoor acreage,’ there is plenty of room at the far end for a pool table, piano, and seating areas to play games or just ‘shoot the breeze.’ The chef’s kitchen provides plenty of elbow room to whip up meals for friends and family. Extensive countertops and seating areas invite social interaction—memories in the making.

    A secondary entrance leads to an area that is currently being utilized for Medical Massage Therapy. The area provides an entry/office space, a treatment room, and a full bathroom. An adjacent private self-sufficient space provides accommodation for a groundskeeper, proprietor, or tenant. Upstairs, eight bedrooms, each have personal access to the second deck level. Sixteen guests are easily accommodated in these spacious rooms. Group retreats, family reunions, or those seeking an enticing rural escape can bask in this enticing setting.

    With a multitude of scenic level building and development sites, the imagination can provide the stimulus, whether a guest ranch, campground, boarding, golf course, bed and breakfast, hobby farm or agriculture purposes, and more.

    Despite the scope of privacy and solitude this property offers, it is only a 10-minute drive to Grand Forks for urban conveniences.

Escaping tyranny in Eastern Europe and Russia in the late 20th century, the group first emigrated to Saskatchewan and then to Grand Forks. It was here where their communal way of living flourished on farms surrounding the city. The Doukhobors called this land Fructova, “the fruit of the valley.”
