For Sale 160 acre Cariboo ranch completely surrounded by Crown Land

Yes, we have decided to retire and sell Meadow Springs Ranch ... $949,000
Please contact Court Smith at: Court Smith RE/MAX Williams Lake Realty

This very private 160 acres is completely surounded by Crown Land ... in every direction. That's right no neighbours! The closest neighbour is about 5 miles north, 5 miles south, and 40 miles west and yet we can be in town in 25 minutes. We've been here 24 years and love'd it.

The property titles go back almost to the turn of the century. One local family that still lives in the area lived here for about 30 years. Another family that's also still in the area was here for numerous years, too, and we all ran livestock. We had over 50 head of cattle and horses and one family had 85 mother cows. Two hectacres is zoned tourist commercial and we ran a very successful guest rancn business for 15 or 16 years. We rented cabins and offered trail rides as well as operating a small cow-calf operation.

    The house has all new inside walls and insulation and is over 3000 square feet: 1571 sq ft up and 1444 down. See the rough floor plans here

    There's good all year access as Stormy Rd is a Department of Highways road and is therefore maintained year round right up to the main gate.

    This property could serve in a number of different interests:
  • agricultural ... cow calf, feeders, or horses
  • hay sales ... 100 big 800 pound round bales annually
  • crop share ... if you don't want to do it we have a neighbour lined up that will
  • guest ranch and/or trailrides (tack and saddles could be included)
  • home business - we have good cell service and great Internet
  • current tractor parts (new aftermarket) business could go with the property
  • total relaxation and privacy ... wildlife and bird viewing
