Located just 2 miles SW of the new Okotoks limits and bordering #7 highway, this generational farm near the Big Rock Erratic is now available, being purchased from CP Rail in 1905. The -148 +/- acres of totally useable land, prime soil and an excellent location for country living close to a major centre. It has hosted many aspects of farming over the past 1¼ centuries, with current income derived from quality hay sales, a 10-acre Colorado Spruce tree nursery with hundreds of mature trees, landscaping quartz rocks from the same erratic movement as Big Rock, and sales of much desired aged barn wood. Starter trees are available on site to continue nursery expansion if desired. Multiple opportunities await from small animal husbandry to whatever your dream business might entail. Tired of working but want country living? Local entrepreneurs will custom cut your hay or move your trees. Sit back and watch the work being done! Two accesses give entrance to the fields/nursery without traffic come through your yard. A ranch style 1625 sq. ft. bungalow (built 1983) includes an attached, insulated oversized double garage with workshop area. The home’s exterior was upgraded (2018-19) with extra insulation, Hardie Board siding accented with glacier rock, triple pane windows and exterior doors. The extra wide roof overhang operates as passive solar, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Stepping inside you’ll find a sizable kitchen with eating area and full dining room. Both feature large windows allowing light and view for you to enjoy the countryside. The oversized living room showcases a bay picture window with another breathtaking panorama of incredible landscape. The back entry has a large mudroom, 3 pc bathroom and laundry area. The main floor also hosts 3 bedrooms/ office space, including the master bedroom with a 4-pc cheater bathroom. Recent interior renovations include all new cordless roll-up blinds (some with remotes). Lights are LED including all pot lights up and down. The fully finished basement includes large windows, a massive rec room, 2 more bedrooms, a 3pc bathroom, large cold room and abundant storage space. A 32X40X14 insulated workshop (built in 1996) with 110 and 220 power, cement flooring, and a mezzanine, is heated by radiant heat. A 36X70X16 (built in 2017) cold storage shed with 3 high roll-up doors provides enclosed locked storage for all your expensive equipment, large trucks, antique vehicles. Rows of shelterbelt trees enhance the beauty of the farmyard, provide privacy, reduces highway noise, blocks wind & snow and provides summer raspberries and saskatoons! In the back yard, you’ll find your own private park-like oasis. A gardener's delight spans large garden areas and an orchard with fruit trees and berries. Flower beds enhance the area and a 14X21 foot greenhouse protects those delicate plants. A cement pad with built in fire pit creates an environment for many family gatherings. (id:48042)
