Ross Spur (near Castlegar & Trail) BC
Located in the heart of the beautiful Kootenay mountains, nearly 40 acres with 5 acres cleared including 2 fenced fields. One is ready for growing crops or supporting livestock while the other is a future orchard with several fruit trees (apple, pear, cherry and blueberry) and a dug pond. There is a 4000 sq/ft veggie garden and a tiered garlic and herb bed. Property has 2 natural spring fed creeks for drinking water source and irrigation. Farmers market income is a definite possibility in the area.
Accommodation on the property currently comes in the form of a very comfortable 12 ft x 30 ft travel trailer alongside a 20 ft x 20 ft 4 season living space. The trailer has 2 propane furnaces and propane stove, a 3 piece bathroom, dining area and bedroom, 8 gallon propane hot water heater and an electric fridge. The 4 season living space is heated by a super efficient Fire King wood stove.
Power is supplied by a 4 x 160 Watt solar array, 50 Amp MPPT charge controller, 4 x 6 Volt AGM battery bank (NO maintenance or off-gassing) with a 1000 Watt DC-AC inverter which still provides charging power even on overcast days. all located inside for easy monitoring. Solar is currently supported by a 3000 Watt Honda generator when needed. Micro hydro is a definite possibility for the future.
The location is gorgeous, private and quiet but still only 20 min drive from the cute town of Fruitvale, an hour from Rossland and Red Mountain. All sorts of wildlife in the area including Elk, Deer, Turkey, Moose and many others.
Hudu Creek runs to the south of the property and is a great swimming spot in the summer months. Priced to sell as is where is due to a job opportunity in another area.
It's an Off-grid/homesteader's paradise! Come see for yourself.
