This is an incredible opportunity! Located just a few minutes away from the new Okotoks town limits, 10 minutes from Diamond Valley, and adjacent to #7 hwy, this generational farm near the Big Rock Erratic is now available on the open market for the first time since 1905. Originally purchased from the Canadian Pacific Railway, the property consists of 144 +/- acres (the original quarter less 5.8 acres for subdivision & roadway allowances), & has been cherished, cared for, and loved by the family for generations. While the farm has been utilized for many aspects of farming over the years, the current income is generated from hay sales, a tree nursery with hundreds of site-grown, mature Colorado Spruce trees, landscaping quartz rocks from the same erratic movement that brought Big Rock Erratic to the area, and sales of aged barn-type wood. The property offers multiple opportunities, with two accesses that enable you to run business opportunities without having traffic come through your family’s yard. The ranch-style 1625 sq ft bungalow (built 1983) includes an attached, insulated oversized double garage, complete with a small workshop area. Inside the home, you will find three bedrooms on the main level, including the master bedroom with a 4-pc cheater bathroom. The large living room features a bay picture window with breathtaking views of the incredible landscape. The dining area is open to the large kitchen with an eating area, providing plenty of space to host large family gatherings. There is also another 3-pc bathroom and laundry on the main floor. The fully finished basement includes large windows, a massive rec room, two more bedrooms, a 3-pc bathroom, and plenty of storage, including a large cold storage room for all those home-grown veggies. The home has undergone recent renovations (2018-19), including upgraded exterior insulation, Hardie Board siding with glacier rock accent, and all new triple-pane windows with cordless roll-up blinds (some with remotes). Additionally, a 32x40x14 Shop (built 1996) with 110 & 220 power, cement flooring, insulated and a mezzanine for extra storage or a hideaway is heated by radiant heat. A 36x70x16 (built 2017) cold storage shed with 3 high roll-up doors provides enclosed locked storage for all that expensive equipment, large trucks, or antique vehicles, with 10 indoor parking stalls. Several rows of shelterbelt trees enhance the beauty of the farmyard while also providing privacy, reducing highway noise, blocking wind and snow, and providing raspberries and saskatoons. Stepping out into the backyard, you find your own private park-like oasis. A gardener’s dream with two large garden areas and an orchard area including numerous fruit trees and berry bushes. Flower beds enhance the area, and a large 14×21 foot custom-made greenhouse protects those delicate tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, etc. A built-in fire pit creates an environment for family gatherings. This spectacular property provides a rare opportunity that you must see
