Property
A spectacular home and acreage located in the iconic rural community of Hazelton. A rare opportunity to own a portion of BC backcountry, with the convenience of living close to town.


The property itself is 160 acres complimented with a stunning house and various improvements. The entire property has been carefully planned, designed and landscaped to take advantage of the southerthern exposure with a gentle slope for ease of maintenance throughout the year, and increased view potential. The property is located outside of the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), which opens up a variety of potential and limits restrictions. Although currently operating as a B&B the property has a transferable grazing license to approximately 4,080 acres allowing for potential livestock production. Furthermore, there is currently 10 acres of productive hay fields that have yielded 4,000 lbs. per acre of prime Timothy and Fescue horse hay. There is an additional 8 acres of cleared pasture for livestock and wildlife grazing. All of these features offer exceptional opportunity to utilize the property as a functional ranch, or hobby farm.


In regards to recreation, there is 14 km of hiking and ATV trails on the 160 acres that are used through the summer. The trails lead down to the Bulkley River (outstanding fishing) and they are groomed in the winter for cross-country skiing or snowmobiles. For those looking to explore beyond the property boundaries, the private parcel is surrounded on three sides by Crown land with boundless opportunity.


The property contains three mountain-fed, year-round creeks with transferable water rights on Saul Creek. Saul Creek allows for daily domestic use with a gravity system set up to the house. A system has also been setup for continuous watering of all the fruit and vegetable gardens and lawns during the summer growing season. This system is plumbed to provide constant fresh, cool water to the pond in the front yard which attracts a wide array of birds, moose, deer, elk, bear and many others. The pond has a small island in the middle with a flagstone walkway to a sitting area offering a fantastic spot to relax.

Area Data :

The Hazelton Communities
The Hazelton area is comprised of two municipalities (the Village of Hazelton and District of New Hazelton), three unincorporated settlements (South Hazelton, Two Mile and the Kispiox Valley) and four First Nations’ Villages (Gitanmaax, Hagwilget, Glen Vowell and Kispiox).


Kispiox
The Village of Kispiox is located where the Kispiox River and the Skeena River meet, northwest of Hazelton in the Bulkley Valley of Northwest British Columbia. The Kispiox Valley, home of natural beauty and independent settlers, starts just north of the community of Hazelton and continues over 100 kilometres north to the source of the Kispiox River, between the mountains of the Skeena River and the Kitwanga Valley. The Kispiox River has had a 50-year history of being home for the largest steelhead in the world and is known for its steelhead and salmon fishing, and is home to talented Gitxsan Artists with many totem poles on display in the community of Kispiox.


Hazelton
Named after the hazel bushes which cover the river-carved terraces, the Hazelton's are situated amidst a majestic landscape dominated by over 3,000 foot walls of the rugged Roche Deboule Range. Easily accessible along the Yellowhead Highway 16, the Hazelton's are a must see for any tourist traveling between Prince George and Prince Rupert in Northwest British Columbia. New and South Hazelton are on the highway. The original village is on the north side of the river and accessible by a 7 km side road.

History :

The resource rich area has nurtured vital Northwest Coast Native cultures for over 8,000 years. The Skeena (which translates to ‘River of Mists') was a trade route which allowed 60-foot cedar canoes to navigate from the coast, upriver to totem filled villages with magical names like Temlaham, Gitanmaax and Kispiox. The frontier spirit of the region can also be experienced in the Village of Hazelton. Old Town's restored heritage buildings serve as a reminder of the days when Hazelton was the commercial centre of the wilderness northwest.


From 1886 to 1913 Hazelton was the upriver terminus for a fleet of sternwheelers which plied the wild rapids of the Skeena. People and supplies reaching Hazelton were then dispersed inland to dozens of mines, farms and settlements. Hazelton maintains a friendly pioneer town appearance which hearkens back to the days when riverboat whistles signalled the arrival of supplies, settlers and adventurers. The Hazelton area has for centuries been the home of the Gitksan and Wet'suwet'en Indian peoples. Since the 1860s bustling pioneer communities have also arisen around the confluence of the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers. This unique sharing of an unequalled wilderness setting has made the Hazeltons the historic heartland of Northwest BC
