Description

Presenting this expansive 609-acre lakefront property that offers a unique opportunity for those seeking a serene ranch, residence, or a secluded recreational retreat.  With an impressive 3.5 kilometres of lake frontage on Buffalo Lake, the estate boasts a tranquil setting with the year-round, trout-bearing Buffalo Creek meandering through its landscape.  Previously operated as a sheep ranch, this vast land is meticulously fenced and cross-fenced, featuring open pastures, potential hay production areas, a network of access roads leading to all corners of the property, and surrounding large tracts of Crown land.  This proximity to nature ensures complete privacy and a rich habitat for wildlife, making it a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.  Located just 20 minutes from 100 Mile House, the property combines the essence of rural living with convenient access to local amenities.

The estate features two homes, each offering breathtaking views and direct access to the waterfront.  The primary residence is a pre-fabricated home that exudes rustic charm, while the second dwelling is an older, double-wide manufactured home, both embodying a sense of warmth and coziness.  The property’s commitment to comfort is further exemplified by its large shop/barn/garage building, which provides ample space for storage, workshop activities, or housing livestock.  This setup not only caters to the practical needs of ranching and agricultural endeavors, but also enhances the lifestyle of those residing on or visiting the property.

This rare find is a stand out not only for its extensive waterfront and natural beauty but also for its facilities that support a self-sufficient lifestyle.  The addition of a brand new 40’ x 60’ shop, fully heated, wired, and plumbed, with its own well and septic system, underscores the property’s value.  The infrastructure is thoughtfully designed to accommodate a variety of uses, from cattle ranching and horse paddocks to recreational activities, ensuring that it meets the diverse needs and interests of its new stewards.  This exceptional property represents a blend of privacy, natural splendor, and practicality, making it a highly sought-after retreat for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of city life while maintaining close proximity to the conveniences offered by 100 Mile House.
