Description :

Two beautiful, contiguous lots providing the perfect opportunity to construct the family home of your dreams in a rural setting, but with urban convenience nearby. These two lots (to be sold together) are approximately 20 minutes east of Prince George nestled amongst rolling hills and deep forests.


The majority of the development work has been undertaken by the current owner and the lot is ready for a home. Presently, there is an electrical shed with panel and an RV and Welder hookup. This provides the opportunity to park and reside in a trailer, or RV while the main home is constructed if you wish to reside on the property during construction. There is a hydro pole with transformer directly across the street and all that remains is to run a wire to the electrical shed. The property already possesses a fully registered civic address (17725 E Perry Road).


There is an artesian well on the property drilled and cased with 8” piping. The well is capable of producing 36 gallons/minute. An evaporation pond has been dug amongst the trees keeping it from sight. All that remains is to install a septic tank and run lines to the evaporation pond. The evaporation pond has a downhill orientation allowing it to be gravity fed.


There are two road entrances onto the lots one of which leads directly to a cleared flat building site immediately adjacent to the power shed and the well - perfect for the construction of a home. The landowner left portions of timber in place to create privacy from the road and neighbouring properties and to help enhance the aesthetic and natural beauty of the lots. In the areas, which have been cleared, grass seed has been applied to ensure slope stability and enhance the aesthetic appeal.


The lots are largely flat with a gentle grade leading towards the valley below. A series of cleared benches offer flat workable space where you may construct a shop or manicure a beautiful yard. The valley bottom, on the southern most portion of the property, has a creek which meanders through it. There is a substantial flat area in the valley bottom offering great soil and gardening opportunities. The current landowner has grown record potatoes in the valley bottom and enough raspberries to produce and sell their own raspberry jam. The perimeter of the garden, in the valley bottom, has been ditched to ensure rapid drainage should the creek rise during spring run-off.


Internet is available throughout the neighbourhood and it is only a 500 ft walk to the school bus pick up location making the location ideal for a young family with school children. The road leading to the lots is paved and maintained. There is also excellent cell phone coverage on the two lots and the surrounding area.

Vegetation :

The property and surrounding region is perfect for the growth of thick coniferous forests with interspersed pockets of aspen and poplar groves. In valley bottoms with rivers, creeks and ponds, willows are the dominant species of vegetation.


The area surrounding Prince George offers excellent climatic conditions for hay production on the flat fertile benches lining the region’s major river valleys.

Area Data :

Prince George, with a population of 74,003, is the largest city in northern British Columbia and is the "Northern Capital" of BC. Situated at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers, and the crossroads of Highway 16 and Highway 97, the city is the service and supply hub for one of the fastest-growing regions in Canada and plays an important role in the province's economy and culture.


Prince George is the dominant economic center of the region. Public sector and education based jobs dominate the municipality’s economy. Presently the Northern Health Authority, stationed in Prince George, possess a $450 million budget and have invested $100 million into local infrastructure. UNBC, the College of New Caledonia and School District 57 adds a further $750 million into the local economy.


The city’s economy was once dominated by the lumber sector; however, the Fraser-Fort George Regional District has experienced extensive closures of the region’s lumber mills. This has been attributed to the movement towards “super mills,” a loss of supply caused by the prevalence of the Mountain Pine Beetle and US tariffs on lumber exports. It is predicted that mining exploration and development will soon supersede the lumber industry, as the dominant industry in Prince George and the surrounding areas. Additionally, Initiatives Prince George estimates that the Nechako Basin contains 5,000,000 barrels of oil, which could help diversify the region’s economy further through the commencement of petroleum harvesting operations.


Presently, the city of Prince George has a number of private enterprises and facilities operating in and contributing to its local economy. These facilities include:


  • Two chemical plants
  • An oil refinery
  • Brewery
  • Dairy
  • Machine shops
  • Value added forestry
  • Specialty equipment manufacturing

Prince George has a large regional airport offering daily flights to numerous major destinations.
History :

The origins of Prince George can be traced to the North West Company fur trading post of Fort George, which was established in 1807 by Simon Fraser and named in honour of King George III. The post was centred in the centuries-old homeland of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, whose very name means "people of the confluence of the two rivers.


In 1903, Fort George's began to expand when reports said that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (later part of CN Rail) would pass near the fur post. In 1906, agricultural settlement began around Fort George and then in 1909, development of the town began as two rival land speculation companies built the communities of South Fort George and Central Fort George. South Fort George was built on the Fraser River near the Hudson's Bay Company’s trading post and Central Fort George was built two miles (3 km) to the northwest on the Nechako River. Both communities flourished due to the marketing strategies of the land promoter for Central Fort George, George Hammond, who advertised the community all over Canada and Britain, describing Fort George in glowing terms as being the future hub of British Columbia, having mild winters and being suitable for any agricultural endeavour (except for the growing of peaches). Ten paddle steamer sternwheelers serviced the area, coming up on the Fraser River from Soda Creek.
