Rare Mountain Acreage in British Columbia, Canada

Stunning Vistas and Abundant Amenities

Welcome to Shiloh Springs, your perfect country home in the heart of 55 acres of hard-to-find mountain land. A veritable private forest in British Columbia, Canada. With a stunning valley vista just 7 kilometers from Clearwater, this premier location offers luxury living and an extensive natural playground.

This land is zoned Rural Residential and is comprised of four titles, including Lots 1, 2, 3, and 4 of Plan KAP32598, District Lot 2147, Kamloops Division of Yale Land District with annual taxes of $4,118. Two lots include licensed springs. A year-round brook also supplies the home with gravity-fed spring water. The property is equipped with a septic system inspected and in excellent condition in 2017. Live in your beautiful haven on lots 3 and 4, and on lots 1 and 2 build a retreat spa with natural spring water, a trail riding ranch exploring the adjoining crown land, vacation rental cabins, a campground, or a small agricultural operation (goats, ginseng, farmers market, essential oils). Or you can build 4 private homes, one on each of the lots to bring in future revenue.

 Chalet-Style Home with Income Potential!

The home has been a popular B&B helping to accommodate some of the over 400,000 annual summer tourists. This is a great mortgage helper as well as an opportunity to meet people from around the world. The living room features custom-built wood bookshelves and a wood stove with a blower. Adjacent to the woodstove is a wood storage brick alcove with an outside access door. Sit in front of the cozy fire and read your favorite book. Or step out onto the deck to enjoy the fresh air and the spectacular view. The newly renovated second story has 2 suites with their own private bedrooms, sitting rooms, and bathrooms.

Built with heating efficiency in mind, the home features air-tight Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) wall construction. Although there are electric baseboards throughout the home, they are rarely used due to the efficiency of the wood stoves. The basement has a covered walkout entrance. It is partially finished and comes with a roughed-in facility for a macerating toilet and shower, a laundry utility sink, a workshop, a pantry, and a cold room with a large sealed fan and venting.  Also, in the basement, the 60-gal water heater is new in 2017, and a large wood stove provides additional heating if necessary. The house has two chimneys with metal linings inside clay tile.

The property is nestled among Grizzly Mountain (6,437 ft), Raft Mountain (7,782 ft), Trophy Mountains (8,176 ft), and Dunn Peaks (7,881 ft) and has its own private forest of Fir, Cedar, Paper Birch, Spruce, and Pine, with a constant supply of onsite firewood. There are forest trails to explore, and even an abandoned log cabin to find deep in the woods. A forest fire break surrounds the house and perimeter of the property. The average temperature is 27.5C (81 F) in July and -10.5C (13 F) in January, with an annual precipitation of 1,053 mm (41.5”).

And when you’re ready to venture out, there’s plenty to discover in the area. Located just 15 minutes away from shopping, schools, police station (RCMP), hospital, ambulance, fire station, VIA Rail train station, library, and other amenities, this property offers easy access to everything you need. And in the summer, you can catch some music in the park. 

Wildlife is prolific in the area whether you are on your property or in the parks. Commonly seen are black bear, deer, bobcat, coyote, raccoon, grey fox, ruffed grouse, marten, fisher, chipmunk, grey squirrel, eagle, hummingbird, pileated woodpecker, flicker, and owl.

Recreational opportunities abound, with two local public golf courses, five minutes away from the North Thompson River offering rainbow trout, bull trout, coho, and chinook salmon fishing. The property is also 15 minutes away from curling and hockey rinks, and a local ski hill. Only 40 minutes away is Wells Gray Park which boasts 5,250 square kilometers of Canadian wilderness. Within the park are 39 cascading waterfalls, two serene lakes, and many breathtaking hiking trails, one of which takes you behind Moul Falls. There is also white-water rafting and kayaking. For shooting enthusiasts, the property is just 45 minutes away from one of British Columbia’s largest gun clubs. Finally, for winter sports lovers, world-class downhill skiing at Sun Peaks Resort is only 90 minutes away.
