5 Acres of Forest and Field near Nelson, BC

This parcel of land consists of open fields, shrubs and forest. There are also some older, neglected fruit trees on the property. The land is mostly flat and there is a seasonal creek that runs through the property. The land is currently vacant and there are no buildings or fences. The owners plan on building a single-family home in the next 1–2 years. Zoning is currently non-ALR but may change in the future. The owners have a water license for residential and irrigation use. The owners are open to proposals based on the usefulness of the land and the needs of the farmer. A vision for this property is still in the works but likely 2–3 acres will be set aside for the families home, shop, garden and play area. The remaining 4–5 acres could be used for low impact purposes. Details will be figured out as needed.
