Do you dream of living an idyllic rural life on the outskirts of Dawson Creek, B.C.? Realtor Nyla LePine of RE/MAX Dawson Creek specializes in helping folks realize their dreams in the Dawson Creek area.
Nyla is currently featuring a property with a stunning custom rancher that includes 100-acres of pristine pasture-land and 50 additional acres of hay, shelters, and dugouts. This rural property is located a short distance south of Dawson Creek in between Pouce Coupe and Tomslake, in a spot where the new homeowners can thrive in a rural setting knowing city amenities are only a short jaunt away. Conveniently, the home is located on a school bus route.
Pouce Coupe is a small village with a long history dating back to the building of the Alaska Highway. Pouce Coupe is home to an elementary school, library, and post office as well as multiple churches, a museum, and a retirement home. When school ends, the schoolhouse becomes home to a thriving community centre that is available to rent for a variety of functions. The Pouce Coupe area also offers plenty of options for outdoor activities, including an outdoor skating rink, baseball diamonds and a newly-constructed skate park.
The hamlet of Tomslake also has a long history that includes the immigration of 518 settlers fleeing Nazi-persecution in 1939. In 1947 the community registered its name as Tomslake in order to receive a post office. Eventually the lake it was named after dried up, but those who love to fish don’t have to go far to cast their lines — bountiful Swan Lake is only four kilometres away.
This custom rancher is as beautiful as the area surrounding it. Built in 2009, this home has a spacious, quality-feel that features hickory cabinets, hardwood and tile flooring, granite countertops, triple glaze windows, central vac, and a wall-mounted fireplace with a battery backup ensuring you won’t be out in the cold even if the power goes out. There are three good-sized bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms as well as a large living room, providing plenty of space for a family to spread out.
The home was constructed with durability in mind, built with concrete and block featuring fiber cement siding and asphalt shingles. There is a 25’ x 26’ heated double-attached garage as well as a 32’ x 40’ shop where you can park all of your big toys and/or farm equipment.
While the home is exceptionally beautiful, chances are high that your family is eager to get outside and live life among nature. The stunning yard this property features will not disappoint with manicured lawns, ample trees, a firepit, garden space and a small greenhouse to fill your soul.
With 100-acres of pasture-land and corrals, multiple shelters and two dugouts in place, this property is an animal lovers dream.
