Description

'RAVENS BLUFF'

Realize your dreams in this fabulous, well-built home, with 128 acres ensuring your privacy and providing incredible potential. Perhaps you are looking for a tranquil place of beauty where you can live a quiet life. Or maybe you want to create a resort or guest house as a business. Or you may want to grow large gardens, or even clear some land and plant vineyards on the gentle south-west facing slopes. All is possible.

Safely away from the house, two mountain creeks and a dramatic waterfall grace the gorgeous property.   Provincial water rights for domestic, agriculture and power were secured 24 years ago. 
The open concept 2200 sq.ft custom-built house has a covered deck to enjoy the incredible lake and mountain views - some say the best in the Slocan Valley. High ceilings throughout, with Douglas Fir trim and accents. Extensive use of low-E windows makes the panoramic views part of the living space and contributes to passive solar heating.  The entire house has clear wood floors except for the large Italian porcelain tiles in the bathroom and entranceways.  The design is elegant and timeless, and a peaceful energy imbues the space.

The walk-out basement/ground floor has timber posts and beams, 9 foot ceilings, solid wood and tile floors. and windows on three sides.  Mechanical room, cold room, and laundry are located in the rear of the ground floor.

Outbuildings include a 384 sq. ft. studio, and a 416 sq. ft.cabin with its own toilet and bath.  There is also a tool shed, 2 large storage sheds, a wood shed, and a vegetable garden.   

This stunning location provides supreme privacy (nearest neighbours are about 1.5km away) and the property is bordered on two sides by Crown Land, while being located only 10 minutes from the villages of Silverton and New Denver with stores, cafés, a school, a hospital and a vibrant cultural community.  The property is in the Fire Protection Area of Silverton, so insurance rates are lower than some other rural properties. High speed internet is available with Explornet satellite.  The current owners have always enjoyed the privacy which this extensive land base provides, but it does have potential for easy subdivision. 

Another unique feature is that the property is off -grid with its own very reliable micro-hydro generating system supplying a constant 7.8KW of AC power to the home year round. This is enough power to heat the house in winter. AC generation means that there is no need for complicated battery storage and inverters.  The system also supplies 6 gpm domestic water service to the house and yard.
All hydro works are on the property (not on Crown Land) and there is potential for expanding the system and increasing power output - even selling to BC Hydro.  A BC Hydro grid connection is only 1km away (about 12 poles or underground).
