We are pleased to present this 11.27 rural acreage with a 2,080 square foot home, just 15 minutes from the town of Clinton, and bordering onto Crown land.
Constructed in 1999 using some recycled materials from a previous home, plus a Quad-Lock basement constructed with cement and reinforced steel, this home is a perfect low maintenance option for those who would rather spend their time outdoors. There are 2 bedrooms, kitchen, and an open living room/dining area, plus a sizable basement for entertaining. Stepping outside you are greeted by a wrap-around deck overlooking the yard, and driveway leading to the home. The residence is serviced by well water, septic and hydro, plus there is a new metal roof installed roughly 5 years ago.
The property rests along a gentle slope, which is entirely walkable and offers beautiful views at the back of the lot line. The lot is entirely fenced, with 6 metal gates staggered throughout the fence line. Beyond the property boundaries is seemingly endless Crown land with miles and miles of area to explore. Whether you love to hike, bike or even hunt, the possibilities are truly endless.
Just stones throw from the property is Kelly Lake, which is part of the Downing Provincial Park, a small yet popular park that encircles the lake. Here you can enjoy views of the impressive Mount Bowman, and surrounding ranges, give it a very rural feel while still being so close to town. The lake is ideal for swimming, but you can also try your hand at fishing for the local rainbow trout while you soak in some summer sun.
Travelling back onto the lot, and sitting near to the residence is a steel workshop, with sizable sliding doors and an interior perfect for working on projects of all sorts. There is enough room for vehicles/tractors and machines, plus ample work space and space for tools. The interior walls are lined with plug-ins that optimize the working space. In addition to the shop, the owner, recently constructed a small shed beside the home which is another great spot for storage, or to sneak away to when the in-laws stop by!
If you are considering moving away from the city, to get back to your roots, and enjoy a slower pace to life, this property may be a great fit.
Only 4 hours and 40 minutes from Vancouver, 15 minutes to Clinton, 1 hour and a half to Kamloops and smack dab in a very desirable recreational location, you are afforded the best of both worlds. Access to urban amenities, but in a quiet, peaceful rural location. This area is rich in wildlife, vegetation, and places to explore. Come see for yourself!
1833 Pavilion-Clinton Road – Clinton, BC
From the town of Clinton, turn onto Pavilion Clinton road and travel for 17 km until you reach the driveway on your right hand side.
It is considered by some to straddle the southern edge of the Cariboo country of British Columbia, although others consider Ashcroft-Cache Creek, Lillooet, Savona, Kamloops and even Lytton and Spences Bridge to be in the Cariboo. Clinton, however, does sit immediately below the southern edge of the Cariboo Plateau. Clinton has a number of attractions including horse-back riding, big game viewing, hiking, fishing and other outdoor activities.
Every May, Clinton is home to the Annual Ball held on the Victoria Day weekend, where many people dress as the first settlers did. The Annual Ball kicks off the Village’s Heritage week with the parade and the May rodeo and dance ending Heritage week. The Clinton Annual Ball is one of British Columbia’s oldest continual events having first been held in 1867 and was a highlight of the social calendar in the British Columbia Interior for many decades. The Clinton Museum, built in 1892, has a number of historical artifacts on display that date back to the gold rush and founding of the area.
- Popular activities in the area include:
- Gold panning
- Horseback riding
Clinton is rich in history of over 150 years and its founding was a direct result of the “boom” of the Cariboo Gold Rush. This active community of 650 residents has a unique western atmosphere, stunning scenery, and an abundance of recreational opportunities.
