Uncommon piece of paradise located just 30 minutes from Nelson or Castlegar in the charming riverside community of Glade.
The quiet and charming recreational and farming Community of Glade is strikingly beautiful and is steeped in West Kootenay history. In 1911 the first of what would eventually be 1,200 settlers and communal farmers came to the Kootenay river valley, and this area, then known as Plodorodnoe (for it’s incredibly fertile soil) was the jewel in the communal crown. Construction then began on two large communal farm houses, a sawmill, and the predecessor to the current Glade Ferry.
Now part of the provincial highway system, the Glade Ferry offers residents convenient full-time access, night and day, but also gives the unique acreages and properties on this side of the river an off-the-beaten-path feel very uncommon so close the the area’s largest communities. Even with the short ferry ride your commute to Castlegar is less than 20 minutes by car, and less than 30 minutes to Nelson to the North and East.
The home itself is a farmhouse classic that offers a completely modern take on acreage living and offers 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 modern baths. Enter through the classic boot room after a morning of tending your ample gardens and walk into the huge great room with its open concept kitchen, dining, and living room areas.
The vaulted ceilings and generous window schedule flood the room with light all times of year and set off the warm maple flooring. On this level you’ll also find two large bedrooms and a full 4-piece bath with convenient main-floor laundry. Now climb the great room’s feature staircase and you’ll come to a large master bedroom with full 4 piece ensuite and a handy walk in closet.
Downstairs you’ll find another spacious bedroom, as well as large and well-appointed family, recreation, storage, and cold storage rooms, as well as a 3 piece bath with over-size shower. The lower level also offers a separate, walk-out level entrance that opens to a commanding view of 2.67 acres of flat useable, agriculturally-zoned land.
The property has its own highly productive water well for your domestic and agricultural use and the property is roughly half fenced to keep your animals (and your kids) corralled. This property is a must see and won’t last long. Call Paul today to book your appointment to view this beautiful property.
