Western Canada is known for its rugged beauty, cultural diversity and rustic charm for adventure seekers and homebodies alike.  ‘Sylvan Lake Sweeping Panorama’ offers prospective land buyers the opportunity to fulfill the dream of owning a piece of the West.


‘Sylvan Lake Sweeping Panorama’ is a 159-acre parcel of land in Lacombe County.  It is located less than 2 miles to the north of Sylvan Lake just off Rainy Creek Road.  Proceed 1.5 miles north from the intersection of Rainy Creek Road and Range Road 24 and you will find yourself on the southwest corner of the parcel.  With 35 acres of mature trees and walking trails, this area makes an ideal spot to build your dream home; the gentle slope of the land is optimal for a walkout basement.  Situated at the top of Blindman Valley, this property offers stunning views of the Rocky Mountains to the west, Sylvan Lake to the south and Gull Lake to the northeast.  With schools, a library, museum and other amenities, the town of Bentley is a quick 13-minute drive to the east.  Build your dream home and wake up to the sun glistening across the lake while you savor your morning cup of coffee and appreciate the rural feeling of home.


With 116 acres of well-maintained farmland, the Screpnek’s have grown abundant hay crops over the years; good drainage and lots of sun are the perfect formula to get the hay put up perfectly.  Bumper cereal and oilseed crops have provided great returns in the past and the farmland is currently cultivated and ready for the new owner to put their stamp on the 2022 season.  There is access to the developed yard site on the northeast corner of the quarter from Township Road 401 that runs along the northern perimeter.  There is a proposed subdivision plan for the yard site on ‘Sylvan Lake Sweeping Panorama,’ which means there are options to either rent the area out, build, or subdivide the acreage off and look forward to a serious return on investment right out of the gate.  With power, a water well, natural gas and a septic field in place, as well as a small shelterbelt and a gravel driveway, the acreage is practically ready to go.  One steel grain bin, with year-round access situated immediately off the county road, will sell with the property.  The yard site is currently rented out and the mobile home can be purchased by the high bidder on sale day for an additional $30,000.  If the new owner does not purchase the mobile home, it will be removed before May 15, 2022.


Sylvan Lake offers recreational activities that are unique to a lakeside community.  A town that is rich in culture and history, with a thriving art scene, and year-round water sports, there are several coffee shops and local eateries to enjoy.   As a bonus, the Medicine Lodge Ski Area is located less than two miles to the north of ‘Sylvan Lake Sweeping Panorama’ and boasts that it is “one big hill with all-natural snow,” offering a variety of runs ranging from beginner to advanced.  This property truly has something to offer for everyone.


The Screpnek family has owned ‘Sylvan Lake Sweeping Panorama’ for decades with multiple generations farming and raising their families on the land.  Memories are sure to be made.  Just look at the Screpnek’s annual Family Day toboggan gathering; the neighbors mark their calendars every year and come out to enjoy the views and a sense of community while sledding and catching up with one another.


The land in this area has a culturally rich history.  Maskepetoon, the leader of a small Plains Cree Band, relied on the land for shelter and food.  With its proximity to Sylvan Lake and Gull Lake, food sources were excellent as well as the panoramic views from every direction.  The area has been recognized as sacred, spiritual grounds. 


Situated at the halfway point between Edmonton and Calgary, and just a short 35-minute drive to Gasoline Alley in Red Deer, this property is located in the perfect spot for the professional that works from home.  With quick access to both international airports in Alberta’s major urban centers, ‘Sylvan Lake Sweeping Panorama’ offers the best of both worlds: charming rural living with amenities nearby.  The proposal for a golf course and cottage subdivisions on the north side of Sylvan Lake are appealing from an investment perspective as well.  Whether farming, building or subdividing, you will not want to miss the opportunity to own ‘Sylvan Lake Sweeping Panorama.’  With a starting bid lower than comparable sales in the area, take advantage of Central Alberta’s most diverse parcel that has been off the market for decades.
