    Description

    Affordable waterfront rural acreage on Little Knouff Lake 45 minutes north of Kamloops.

    The land is comprised of approx 8-10 acres of forest (mostly spruce) with some nice trails established, a scenic creek through the land and some attractive meadow/wetland fronting on the lake and creek; lots of wildlife and privacy. This is the Ideal hunting property, off-grid recreational retreat, or secluded rural residence.

    The land is off the grid, but there is a 4-year-old solar set up with four 365 Watt panels and 12 batteries. For water there is a drilled well with pump connected to a travel trailer (to be removed). No septic. Seller has an outhouse/pitt. The neighbour has BC Hydro Power but all lines are privately owned by them and run across their land so any connection would require the neighbor’s approval and some form of payment/hook up fee on top of your transformer etc. The current owner had no intrest to connect when the line was installed and instead desired the off-grid lifestyle.

    This is a very motivated seller, the land is priced over $50k below the current assessment which is $329,000.

    There are a couple useable outbuildings and fencing/farming materials on site. There are also 2 seacans and a couple trailers to be removed and cleaned up or possibly included—to be discussed buyer and seller.

    The land is currently used as small hobby/self-sufficient farm with goats, chickens, a couple horses, and pigs set up in a few pens. All showings are by appointment only, please respect the seller’s privacy. The seller resides on land year-round.

    Access is via gravel/dirt roads and a short section of FSR tha is plowed but the owner and the neighbor who resides there year-round.

    Area Data

    The property is located 37 km as the crow fly’s northeast of downtown Kamloops. It takes approx. 45 minutes to make the drive. The property is part of the Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD). This is the local government body where you apply for permits, look up zoning (see below), and other rural property services such as managing refuge sites. The surrounding area is mostly forest, ranch land and some rural residential property with a couple small rural resorts. The nearest resort is Knouff Lake Resort on Sullivan Lake less than 1 km south of the land. There are a number of small and mid-sized lakes in the area that are excellent for fishing. The lake this land fronts on is mostly shallow with a couple deeper holes and some decent fishing as well. Heading north from the property you also access the highway traveling on FSR road for approx. 20 km.

    Recreation

    This is an excellent recreational property with year-round options from snowmobiling, ice fishing and downhill skiing at nearby Sun Peaks in winter to canoeing, fishing, motorized recreation and golf at Sun Peaks in summer.

    Fishing

    There is really no need to leave the property to fish, but some other great fishing lakes are as close as a walk away. The owner has established a trail down to the wetland and lake.
