$598,900 Dream creek-front 3-bedroom solar home & 160 private acres in Merritt, British Columbia

160 acres of paradise just 3½ hours from Vancouver, with a creek-front, unique, 3-bedroom, 2-bath home, with two extra showers and five outhouses for having huge parties (or private retreats)! Totally self-sufficient, the home is solar-powered with generator back-up, enjoys cool, clear underground spring water, and keeps toasty with wood heat and propane back-up. This million-dollar dream of a property is priced almost $300K below the actual value for the land and buildings. --- The 1,550-sqare-foot home blends the rustic charm of a log cabin and loft with elegant features like stained glass windows and an antique claw-foot bathtub. The house has new cinnamon-mocha wide-plank hardwood flooring. Stunning! The living room also features a skylight and windows on three sides. One of the bathrooms has black slate flooring, and the entryway has warm-coloured stone flooring. There's a modern addition with a huge double shower in the downstairs bathroom, and an enormous master bedroom with windows in every direction. Step through the door onto a private deck for your morning coffee when you've got company. Or enjoy the lower deck overlooking the creek. --- There's a 5,000-square-foot barn, shop, or activity centre. This ½ mile by ½ mile quarter-section has varied terrain, including the creek winding and splashing down the valley, forests of pine, fir, and aspen, lush green meadows, and hills to climb. The property is fully fenced, with a granite-bouldered rockface forming a natural boundary on the west edge of the property. This exquisitely tranquil piece of BC wilderness is suited to year-round living or a vacation get-away, horse farm, or retreat centre. This is a turn-key solution for a vacation property, as I am selling the home with furnishings included. --- All the Modern Conveniences and Off-Grid --- There's cell phone service in the house and at many places on the property. There's satellite internet and TV if you want it, or just use your BlackBerry or iPhone for email. The solar power system has provided all the power I've needed. Hot water is provided by a Bosch on-demand flow-through heater. There is also solar-heated hot water with a propane hot water tank for back-up. This system is sized to accommodate groups of 25 people. There's a year's supply of split firewood in the woodshed, and unlimited firewood on the property. --- Please visit this website to find more information about the property, including more pictures and descriptions
