The ‘5 of Diamonds’ is made up of 5 contiguous quarters of land in one of the most scenic areas in Alberta. Located halfway between Niton Junction and Whitecourt, Alberta, and less than 4 miles off the Anselmo Highway, ‘5 of Diamonds’ is made up of 792 acres containing spectacular views to the south and west.
Selling as one Parcel, ‘5 of Diamonds’ offers approximately 550 cultivated acres used for silage in the 2021 growing season, and with a little clean up, this could easily be increased to 600 arable acres or more. This grouping of land has the potential to be used as farmland, or ranch land if seeded down to grass, giving the new owner options to work the land as they see fit. ‘5 of Diamonds’ has a southern slope and is made up of sandy loam soil offering up almost unlimited forgiveness in years of excessive rainfall. Sand is the worlds most consumed raw material after water and the world is running out. The land has been test-drilled and has a deep sand deposit offering up unlimited potential for generations to come. If you’re looking to invest in a farm or ranch, why not invest in one sitting atop a raw material getting more valuable every day.
Most of the perimeter is fenced with some cross fences and approximately 192 acres are currently in bush and hay. The existing yard site boasts full services, including a water well and power, an older home in need of improvements, and has a natural gas riser that just needs to be hooked up. Located just 30 minutes from the community of Mayerthorpe and 45 minutes from the town of Whitecourt, all the amenities of the city are nearby while the new owner can still enjoy the peace and solitude of country living. Ease of access is increased with three of the quarters situated on Township Road 570; the main entrance to the yard site is accessible from Township Road 570 as well as two other approaches, including one with steel gates. The Buyer will take possession of cultivated land upon current renter harvesting the 2022 crop. Possession of the house and yard shall be at closing.
