78 Acre Lakefront Farm

House Recently Purchased - Salt Spring Island BC

Set on the beautiful shores of St Mary Lake, with nearly 78 acres of sunny, level, forested, and gently rolling land, this is one of the Pacific Northwest’s finest farms. The property includes state of the art, ultra-deluxe stabling, bridle trails and an extensive array of sport appropriate outbuildings. The farm currently houses a full service dressage, jumping and eventing facility with abundant resources for future expansion into a multitude of agricultural or agri-tourism uses. The tastefully renovated 2,900 square foot residence provides gourmet stainless kitchen, vaulted ceilings, interior mezzanine, media room, and a slate tiled inground pool overlooking pastures and freshwater lake. The grounds include paved gated entry, tree-lined gravel lanes, and tasteful landscaping. A truly remarkable property with state of the art amenities and the potential to be the crowning jewel of agriculture in coastal British Columbia.
