House for Sale on Shared Land in the Slocan Valley
New Denver/Silverton in the Kootenays, British Columbia
1700 sq. ft. house on 38 acres of land shared with others. Includes 2 cabins without plumbing, a 4 bay garage, a greenhouse, an established perennial garden and a vegetable garden with raspberries and blueberries. The robins beat me to the huckleberries right outside the door. There is also a root cellar and a freezer in its own room accessed from an outside porch. Ownership will include 1/4 share in a tractor with snowblower.
We are a corporation that holds the land in trust for the shareholders. Of the four lots: one person does not live on his lot but is in Silverton (1 mile away) and he gardens in the meadow at "Adela"; a couple live in a new house overlooking the meadow, one of the lots sits on the edge of the property looking over the lake and valley which has just sold to a retired couple . The fourth lot, owned by the writer (73 year old single woman), is at the end of the meadow closest to the creek. The houses do not have line of site to each other but are quite close. Because we own the land together, it is not possible to get an ordinary bank mortgage. And I will not carry the mortgage.
We are in the forest with clearings around each house and located around the meadow, situated above Slocan Lake. Each "lot" has their own garden space within the meadow which is fenced to keep out deer and bear (and it does). If you haven’t been here, it is stunningly gorgeous, full of stories from many people about driving down into New Denver or Silverton and realizing that this is home. The downside is overcast skies in winter. My house has a lot of window so its quite bright and I don’t mind. Some people ski in the back country in the sun, some people just complain, some leave. Some just love it here completely and stay, happy.
Check out the video and if you are truly interested, email me with your questions and give me your phone number if you would like to talk to me. One important thing to mention is that we do not want any dogs that bark or chase deer. A well behaved dog could be acceptable.
