Pristine Acreage - 400 McNary Road is located approximately 13 kilometers south east of Lillooet in the Texas Creek Valley with easy road access off McNary Road. 5.98 acres of rural land with a spectacular view corridor of the Fraser River Valley and Coast Mountain Range as the backdrop. When you are standing at the front of the property looking towards the mountain to the east – you will see a barbed wire fence on the left however, the property extends beyond this. This fence was previously used for to contain livestock. The remainder of the barbed wire fencing extends for the most part along the perimeter of the property. I have attached the legal survey for your information and review. The property is perfect for a homestead/ranch, farm or a quiet second home retreat with similar neighbouring acreage properties and few neighbours.
This property has two water sources; Armjit Springs is pristine water for domestic use which allows 2.27305 m3/day, approximately 500 gallons per day (spring water) for this property. Armjit Springs is located on Crown Land southwest of the property and is the legal/communal water source for everyone in this area. It is gravity fed with tremendous water pressure – 80 P.S.I. The second domestic water source comes from Riley Creek which provides domestic irrigation for growing hay, crops or keeping livestock – 9,991.18800 m3/year, approximately 2.64 million gallons per year for this property. Both Armjit Springs and Riley Creek are gravity fed which is a huge benefit as both water sources do not need a pump for delivery.
The current owner has an active water license for both sources. These licenses have a combined annual renewal cost of $100 ($50/each) and are transferrable to the new owner.
In 2013, the owner of the property applied to BC Hydro to have new 200A electrical services brought onto the property. Hydro prepared a quote/electrical service design for service on the property – a single power pole to be located several hundred meters from the driveway entrance off McNary. The service was to be 1 phase, 3 wire, 120/240 V to a 200 Main Amp switch. The quote at that time was $520.00 including GST. The owner did not proceed with this work at that time and the costs associated with installing this service have increased since that time. Note this cost excluded charges from any other utility (gas, telephone, cable). They must be contacted separately to arrange for their services
McNary Road is serviced by the local Highway Maintenance Authority.
Previous owner had perc test completed for determine ground suitability for the installation of a septic system. Ground conditions met requirements.
If your interests are more towards a self-sufficient lifestyle – this property would be perfect for solar power generation. Lillooet has an abundance of sun hours throughout the year.
This property does not rely on district utility water and electricity is not required for water delivery. The tremendous success of local growers in the region is well-known. Fort Berens Vineyard for example, has received multiple awards for their wine production and record sales each year. Texas Creek Farms is another successful agricultural operation specializing in high quality organic farm produce with the majority of their yields selling to a number of high-end restaurants in Whistler and Vancouver. The local hop farm sells to various specialty breweries in the Lower Mainland. Lillooet Farm is a smaller operation that sells produce to individuals who want the best quality vegetables – their tomatoes are superb.
