Owners General Description:
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a small Ranch in the much sought after area of the Parklands of Central Alberta. Superbly situated off Highway 21, between Red Deer and Camrose, it is conveniently placed for numerous towns, yet provides very private, secluded accommodation. The property is accessed by a half mile, spruce tree lined private driveway, and the whole site enjoys the protection of large mature trees. The Ranch consists of a full 1/4 section ( 160 acres) + around 10 acres lawned and treed gardens and farmyard.
The Farmhouse is situated in a beautiful treed yard with well-kept lawns and a productive vegetable garden. The house was built in the 1940’s and has recently benefited from numerous upgrades including new foul waste disposal, new plumbing and bathroom fittings, rewiring and new floor coverings though out the house. The water is provided by a private well which provides all water for House and buildings. A new State of the Art water filtration system was added last year, which provides crystal clean water from all faucets in Ranch House. The house benefits from a large wrap around deck, partially carpeted and a Patio, under construction on the west side of the House, which will be finished this Spring and provide another entry to the house. The Farmland consists of SW ¼ 29-42-20 (160 acres). The House and Yard were sub-divided from the NW Quarter and amalgamated into the SW Quarter under one Title.

The Horse corrals are fenced with mains Post and Electric TAPE, the larger one benefiting from a 30’x 20’ field shelter and electrically heated water trough. Apart from the three corrals around the yard, there are also 2 more paddocks behind the Yard site and around 20 acres of pasture, in two fields adjacent to Cattle Corrals.
