    Description

    This trophy estate property is back-dropped by one of BC’s most spectacular Rocky Mountain vistas nearby the world-renowned “Steeples.” This sprawling 568 acre property includes a large private lake of approximately 30 acres. A rare opportunity to own a large private piece of BC’s picturesque wilderness, with the convenience of being located only a couple kilometres off Highway 95. Build your dream home or cabin along the lakefront and take in the views of the mountains as you develop this acreage into a legacy estate property. There may also be an opportunity to consider rezoning and developing into a recreational development property with multiple lakefront lots or RV campground.

    Located in the East Kootenay region of Southern BC, the property is 32 km north of the city of Cranbrook and 5 km south of the community of Wasa Lake. When you're out of the property you feel absolute privacy and the feeling of being in the middle of BC’s backcountry; and when combined with the close proximity to town and the amenities offered it's a winning combination.

    The property is surrounded by Crown land and the area is teeming with wildlife. This region of British Columbia is widely recognized as one of the best areas for hunting or wildlife viewing with strong populations of whitetail deer, mule deer, elk, bear, wild turkeys and grouse.

    The property has been previously logged, however there are sections of timber remaining especially around the lake frontage. A perimeter road has been constructed around the 30-acre private lake with 15 driveways and building sites established. The terrain is generally rolling and gentle and all of the building sites have a view and frontage on the Lake. The property would lend itself to a family, club or group purchase, or one could pursue approval for a commercial campground and or individual lots. Please refer to the mapping section of the listing to get a general layout of the 15 roughed in building sites.
