Sale Description

The Ranch is set in one of Western Canada’s most unique ranch settings. Situated high above the Smoky River 30 miles northeast of Grande Prairie, Alberta, the Ranch encompasses 1,580 contiguous acres with no public through roads.

Deeded land commences at the northwest corner, where the residence and outbuildings are situated, and then gently slopes approximately 4 kilometers to the east/southeast. The 460 acre grazing lease descends down from the upper plateau to border the Smoky River for 2 KM.

The tableland ranch is a mosaic of cultivated land, pasture land, boreal forest and diverse unique recreational parcels.

Many of the parcels offer an opportunity for farmers or ranchers to break and cultivate additional acres to increase the large tract of arable land currently available for pasture and crop. Several parcels would be ideal for a private airstrip.

The most southeasterly parcel, being Parcel #3, offers a panoramic view of the Smoky River, both upstream and downstream. From seemingly the end of nowhere, to the east is a breathtaking view to seemingly everywhere.

Several parcels offer unlimited opportunity for a unique cabin setting with elk, deer and moose out the back door. Parcel #4 offers a perfect opportunity for friends to co-own that exclusive recreational land. The parcel is divided by a rugged ravine yet has separate legal access to both sides of the ravine. The ranch is about as secluded and remote as one can dream about, yet you can grab your golf bag and in minutes be golfing down on the course just over the hill.
