LOCATION

Lot A is located approximately 21 km from Sicamous, along a logging road that passes through the alpine. It is maintained by the logging company when there is logging in the area. In years when there is no logging it is not maintained by anyone and becomes impassable. The property can be accessed by water – 45 minutes by boat from Blind Bay.

From the waterfront there is a forestry road throug a park to Lot A.

Lot A is situated north of Sicamous on the east side of Anstey Arm on Shuswap Lake. It is set back from the lake at is not the lakefront but has access to the lake by way of a forestry road. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has advised in writing that it will not support an application for a dock on the lakefront area.The property is about 21 km due north of Sicamous and there is a road access via gated logging road.

The property is predominantly flat with a fairly steep slope on the eastern side with lots of great building sites to choose from and it appears to be an ideal for a development of a small airstrip.

The neighborhood has been developed with houses along the lake shore and is adjacent to the Queest Village Park and Queest Village development which was completed several years ago. The property is also adjacent to two provincial Park properties.

This is a chance to enjoy the benefits and privacy of a very large property with access to all of the recreational Shuswap Lake has to offer.

Sicamous  is on the TransCanada Highway one on the eastern side of Shuswap Lake between Salmon Arm and Revelstoke. It is about a 5 Hour Drive from both Calgary Alberta or Vancouver BC.

Property Overview
This property located on spectacular Anstey Arm Shuswap Lake enjoys a beautiful meadow, two creeks and approximately 175 acres of useable land. Over 100 years ago this property was the home of one of the original homesteaders in the Shuswap area. The land is very fertile and with two creeks there was lots of water to irrigate the fruit and vegetables grown by the family. Today it’s hard to imagine that a century ago there was a one room school on this site with approximately thirty students coming to school each day on horseback.

When looking to purchase a property one should be able to enjoy all activities that you and your family members participate in. Very rarely are properties on the market that offers this as well as being able to relive the exciting homesteader days of the past century.

At Rainbow’s End, the property is offered for sale as one parcel or can be purchased in smaller parcels. A subdivision is currently in process of creating 3 fifty acre and one 25 acre parcel. All the parcels enjoy access to beautiful sandy beaches, one at the Robert’s Bay Provincial Park and the other in the Pete Martin Bay. (See attached map in this feature sheet) Where else can one enjoy quad biking, cycling, hiking, water activities and being located minutes from Queest Mountain which is recognized as the best snowmobiling destination in Western Canada? Your year around recreation activities are at your door step. As there are only four acreage parcels being offered for sale it is important to contact the listing agent at your earliest possible convenience to select acreage of your choice. TBD

At the end of rainbow it is to be believed there is a pot of gold and At Rainbow’s End on the Shuswap Lake it couldn’t be a truer statement. There are endless opportunities available to the future owner of this spectacular piece of Shuswap real estate.

Access
The subject property is currently landlocked and boat access only. According to the agent, the owner currently accesses the subject property by boat, forest service road, or personal helicopter. In a letter, MOT, being the upland owner, gave consent for a dock/moorage within the lake frontage of Pete Creek Road subject to the issuance of an access/driveway permit from MOT. As part of the permitting process, "the driveway must be designed in accordance with Ministry driveway standards and will need to comply with the appropriate environmental agencies for working in sensitive/riparian areas." The proposed dock is 8 m x 2.5 m or 20 m2 in size. There is "a secondary access by way of an easement that has been in place for thirty years" as the subdivisions in the area are deemed boat access only, and that "an alternate road access has been professionally laid out through crown land and [the] paperwork submitted to forest service and MOT.

Riparian Areas Regulation (RAR)
There are a number of creeks that run through the subject property including Pete Creek, and Roberts Brook. A RAR assessment was accepted by the province in 2009 and established 10 - 30 m Streamside Protection and Enhancement Areas on the property. Although a RAR assessment was completed for the subject property, any upgrades to Pete Creek Road, as required by MOT, wiii require a new RAR assessment conducted by a Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP). A RAR covenant may be required at the time of subdivision.

ZONING
The property is currently zoned Rural with a minimum parcel size of 148 acres. This zoning allows for two dwellings. Under the proposed official community plan the zoning will change to Rural Holdings which has a minimum parcel size of 20 acres. Each parcel can have two homes the first being any size and the second not greater than 60% of the floor area of the first residence.

This zoning also allows for a standalone campsite on each lot. The property can be used to construct a back woods lodge, guest ranch, airstrip and or a Heli-pad.

CURRENT PLANS FOR THE PROPERTY
The current owner plans to subdivide the large parcel into four parcels, three of which are 50 acres and the fourth will be 25 acres. The property borders on Roberts' Bay provincial park and also has access to Pete Martin Bay. These two beaches are considered the finest on the Shuswap.

The only road access to these beaches is through Lot A.

There are also 6 waterfront 1.5Acre lots in front of Lot A + a 40 Acre undeveloped parcel that is owned by another Seller. These properties only have water access. It would be advantageous to have the new buyer own both parcels and provide road access to these waterfront lots. At the time of this posting (Aug/15) we have been in negotiations with that seller of those properties to bring them to the market.

Recreation
Gateway to Shuswap offers superb snowmobiling in the winter. Groomed trails on the four local mountains feature sledding for everyone from the novice to the extreme rider. The deep powder snow extents to sledding season well into spring. Skiers will find the nearest slopes at Silverstar Mountain Resort northeast of Vernon, Apex mountain resort west of Penticton, Big White Ski Resort 54 KM  southwest of Kelowna and Sun Peak’s Ski Resort at Todd Mountain north of Kamloops.

In the spring summer and fall enjoy the relaxation of touring boating, lake cruising on the historical Phoebe Ann Paddle Wheeler and fishing in the warm pristine lakes. For those who want to play, there is every imaginable water toy available and many amenities available at Finlayson and Beach parks. Hike the many walking and hiking trails leading to waterfalls cascading over large boulders and experience the sounds of nature while strolling through the forest.

Other area recreation include golfing fishing swimming parasailing wine touring and the commercial waterslides.
