The Weber Parcel is situated in the West County of Grande Prairie some 9 miles South West of Elmworth, Alberta only 7 miles from the BC border. The quarter is 159 acres in total and comprised of 28 acres of hay land with the balance being yard and natural forest. A portion of Parcel has previously been selectively logged with yet another portion clear cut with a regrowth of aspen in its place. The majority of the Parcel can be converted into arable land as is evidenced by neighboring land. The land has annual surface lease revenue of $3,225.00 from Cenovus as well as revenue from Hay in the area of $1,100 a year.
The residence is an unbelievable mix of rustic and leading-edge design not yet totally completed. The property would be perfect for a handyman to finish off the residence including seeing a standalone septic system installed as planned for. The main structure is built from big log construction. The bottom floor is 825 sq/ft and the top 725 sq/ft. and accessed via a spiral staircase. A 200 sq/ft glass solarium has been added on to the south exposure of the home. The home is situated on top of screw pilings with no basement. The home is heated with propane and wood. Power is all underground having been bored to the residence. The rustic home is close to the Elmworth School and would make for an excellent residence for anyone who truly enjoys the outdoors or even seeks part time recreational retreat. The property is about as close to being off the grid as one can get being only 1 mile east of a forest that is then contiguous through to Prince Rupert, BC. A hunting lodge is another potential use of the property with all species of ungulate out the back door.
The farmyard has a barn partially restored along with corrals for cattle. The water well has ample flow to service both domestic and livestock needs. One of the hidden jewels of quarter is the pristine creek flowing through the property. The property comes with a 30 x 40 steel building package not erected. The property will be sold by way of online timed auction by September 21, 2017 by way of CLHbid.com. If you would like to arrange a viewing, please call Cordell at 1 (780) 296-5050.
