I just finished uploading this House & Acreage for sale, 8903 HIGHWAY 6, NELSON-SALMO, BC

Riverfront farm at a fantastic price! Check out this cute 2 bedroom handyman special on 5 flat, arable, AG-zoned acres backing on to the Salmo river. The property is located just 25 minutes from Nelson, South on Highway 6, and is close to all of the shops and services of Salmo. It offers one of the rarest commodities in the West Kootenays: Flat, farm-able land! The parcel is approximately 170' wide by 1112' deep (for a total of 4.9 acres)and is bordered on its full width by the Salmo River. The home is the classic handy man special, with all its major components appearing to be in good shape, but just needing someone prepared to bring it up to its full potential. The home boasts a brand new electrical service and electric forced air furnace. The kitchen is well laid out and very functional but in need of a few updates. The living room is spacious and has a pre-existing flue which may be able to accommodate a new wood stove (always check with a WETT certified inspector for installation plans). Outside there are several outbuildings, numerous fruit trees and berry bushes, and practically endless potential for more. The land would provide ideal pasture for your animal friends and there is a healthy and growing equestrian community in the area. Whether you're looking for a starter-home that you can put your stamp on OR a retirement home that you can tinker with ,this property has a lot of potential.
