Check out these three parcels of agricultural land next door to McLennan, Alberta. This estate sale boasts 347 acres and starting bids set well below the appraised value.  The town of McLennan is known as a transportation hub and received its name from an officer of the original Dunvegan railway.  Today the town is known as the Bird Capital of Canada, based on its location on the southern edge of Kimiwan Lake, and is home to numerous species of migratory birds.  The current canola crop on Parcel 1 and Parcel 2 of ‘Road and Rail’ is a testament to the fertility of the land itself.   


PARCEL 1 of ‘Road and Rail’ borders the western edge of the town and possesses a total of ninety-nine acres of lakeside, country living right next door to all the urban amenities.  The one thousand and eighty-three square foot, three-bedroom residence, that includes a finished basement, has been well maintained.  Check out the yard, and you will realize the original owner had perhaps more than one green thumb.  One never needs to worry about the direction of the wind as the new owners will have the option of using either of two large decks at any time.  


PARCEL 2 is the twin to Parcel 1 on the west and is made up of a total of 128 acres.  ‘Road and Rail’ is the definition of the saying location, location, location.  With today's fuel costs, the demand for good rail trackage has become more critical for any front-line agribusiness or value-added agriculture processing plant. For either, you need two things: access to a major all-weather road for trucking and access to Rail as a link to major ports.  Facilities such as these across Western Canada tend to be located on the doorstep of towns and cities, given the need for services and housing for their labour base.  Ten years from now, when the new rail siding is being built, don't be the one to say, “why didn’t I see the opportunity ‘Road and Rail’ had to offer back in 2022?”


PARCEL 3 is located north of the townsite of McLennan in the County of Big Lakes.   The Parcel is made up of 119 acres of virgin ground and is truly a blank canvas. With crown land abutting it, the Parcel may be of interest to holders of Grazing Dispositions from the Crown.  It may also be of interest to anyone seeking a secluded Parcel of recreation land to hang out on that is situated just off the lake and is assured of no unwanted traffic.  Parcel 3 offers a Starting Bid of one hundred and sixty-seven dollars per acre.  Buy a new quad or buy this quarter, then sit back and see which was the better investment in twenty years.
