Sale Description

‘The Great Divide,’ the most famous Continental Divide of the Americas, is located west of Lake Louise on the border between Alberta and British Columbia, and separates the water that runs toward the Pacific Ocean from the water that runs toward the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans and the Gulf of Mexico.

If you travel on The Trans-Canada Highway just 170 kms east of Edmonton, you will find North Eastern Alberta’s version of ‘The Great Divide.’  This 144-acre parcel can be found just east of Secondary Highway 881 on Township Road 510A - a mere 3.5 kms north of the Village of Mannville, Alberta.  Situated in what is known as the parklands belt, you will find large expanses of prairie interspersed by bluffs of poplar, balm and willow.  Mannville boasts a rich history of great hospitality and a standard of living which compares favorably with most centers of the province.

‘The Great Divide’ offers a little over 50 cultivated acres in Canola in 2021, and a fantastic opportunity for the new owners to add more arable acres.  The remainder of the acres are currently in pasture with a flowing creek, ideal for freshwater for the cattle.  Range Road 85A intersects this quarter from north to south and provides just the right set of circumstances for the new owners to subdivide the property; the 48-acre parcel on the east side of the County Road would be a beautiful location to build your dream home.

‘The Great Divide’ is located a stone’s throw from the Riverview Golf Course; recognized as one of the most challenging 9-hole courses in North Eastern Alberta.  Nestled in the valley of the Vermilion River that winds around just south of the quarter, building or farming in the area is sure to not only be profitable, but will also feel like home from the moment you set foot on the quarter.

With a low starting bid of $150,000, it is almost unheard of to find well-located acres like these in the County of Minburn. The Village of Mannville has many amenities and a good old small-town feel!  Farm, ranch, invest or build but don't miss 'The Great Divide' on the first of September.
