Description :

Wonderful opportunity to purchase an affordable recreational lot in the wilderness surrounding Baker Creek, BC. With multiple purchase options, this subdivision is an extremely unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a promising investment. There are 12 lots available, as independent units, sold in multiples, or as a single cohesive block. The lots are flat, easily accessed and surrounded by some of the finest outdoor recreation and scenery that British Columbia has to offer. Lots vary in vegetation coverage, but all offer a cleared building site.


The lots range in size from 2.495 acres to 2.619 acres. They are rectangularly shaped and are accessed from the fully paved and maintained Tibbles Road. Each lot has its own individual access/egress from this main roadway. Adorning each individual driveway is an ornamented steel gate providing both security and aesthetic curb appeal.


All services are readily available upon purchase. Two 400 ft wells have been drilled, 1 artesian but both with very high flow, which are to serve each individual lot and providing bountiful quantities of water. The necessary easements are in place to provide water to each lot. Hydro poles run along Tibbles Road and power may be easily diverted onto the individual lots. The soil on each lot has been perc tested and deemed suitable for septic installation.


Lot D contains an impressive 36 ft x 36 ft commercial grade shop. Lot D depicts the potential that the remainder of the lots possess. The shop is fully energized with 200 amp electrical service. There are two overhead bay doors measuring 12 ft x 10 ft along with 12 ft interior ceilings. The shop is ideal for storing toys, tools and equipment in order to maximize your rural lifestyle. The shop also permits for you to comfortably and safely leave your recreational equipment on site while you are not in the area. This opens the option of camping or staying in an RV while at the property, but still having storage options.


If you want to purchase a vacant lot, but would still like the option of building a similar style shop or even a cabin on the property, the seller (who built the shop on Lot D) is a developer and can offer to undertake the construction.


Some potential purchase ideas within the subdivision include:


  • Block investment purchase for future buildout
  • Large family wanting to build cabins on multiple parcels in close proximity to each other
  • Individual recreational lot purchase
  • Purchase of Lot D for affordable storage option in the area

History :

The region surrounding Quesnel, was made famous by the Gold Rush, which occurred starting in the mid 19th century. The Gold Rush caused a major influx in the number of people moving to the area and in 1861 it was said that the town of Barkerville (east of Quesnel) was the most populous city in North America east of Chicago and north of San Francisco. Many remnants of this time-period remain throughout the region, as evidenced by the numerous historical buildings in and around Quesnel.


Baker Creek and Nazko became famous cowboying centers, as cowboys would summer thousands of cattle in the high country surrounding Nazko and Baker Creek and then drive them to auction at Quesnel each year. Alexander Mackenzie was one of the first Europeans to visit the Baker Creek and Nazko region of the province in 1793, as he was guided through by the Carrier First Nation tribe. The cowboys found it difficult to make a living in the early days with poor access to supplies, long distances to market and sporadic weather conditions.
