Property description

Imagine owning a peaceful 7.86 acre farm where you can grow nearly everything you need for a self-sustaining lifestyle; including plenty of land and options for recreation. Sitting serenely in the heart of the Cowichan Valley, this spectacular property has much more to offer than many farms in the Valley. Indoor AND outdoor equestrian arenas were built with no expense spared. The 3-stall barn (with individual walk-outs & ½ acre grazing pastures) includes a hayloft & tack room with heat & hot water, and ample room to expand the barn or build an additional one. You will be awed by the abundantly producing 30x75 fenced veg garden, mixed fruit orchard, edible grapes, stunning flower gardens. A greenhouse, huge workshop & wood barn round out the amenities. The two homes offer excellent flexibility for multi-generational families, farmworkers or rentals (including short-term). Enjoy dining alfresco in one of the gardens, sip tea by the fish pond & watch incredible sunrises and sunsets. Offered at $2,700,000 CDN ($2,140,000 USD approx)
