Unmatched Sporting and Small Animal Farm only 10 minutes from Horsefly BC.
Settled in one of the nicest parts of the Cariboo.
Used as a recreational property so far but with a nice 2 Bedrooms Home, located on 60 acres of Grass and Timberland.
There is an unregistered former Mobile Home for Storage and Work as well as some other outbuilding.
Well, and Septic are in place and you are ready to start your dream of outdoor and farming right here.
The house is heated by wood and electric for backup.
Due to the location fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing (moose, deer, bear, grouse, coyote and more) are a given.
Great property for pork, sheep, chicken or hobby horses.
Very quiet, but year-round access on a serviced road with power and phone service!

Info about Horsefly:
Horsefly, formerly known as Harper's Camp, is an unincorporated community in the Cariboo region of British Columbia, Canada. It is located between the Cariboo Mountains and Quesnel Lake.
The Horsefly River and Horsefly Lake were given their names by the miners who came to the area during the Cariboo Gold Rush and were greeted by masses of pesky horseflies, but the village of Horsefly was known as Harper's Camp until approximately 1920 when it was changed to Horsefly.
Harper's Camp City Hotel (the 1900's)
The first major gold discovery of the Cariboo Gold Rush was made on the Horsefly River by Peter Dunlevy in 1859. More gold seekers soon arrived and a town was built near the site of Dunlevy's strike including several hotels, a store, and a post office.
Then in 1887, the area experienced a second boom when Thaddeus Harper built and operated the first of several hydraulic mines and the town became known as Harper's Camp. One of these mines was also known as Horsefly.
Today the village of Horsefly is a popular tourist destination with a forestry-based economy. Sockeye salmon return each fall to spawn in the Horsefly River.
Horsefly offers all the amenities to locals and visitors, including a k-12 school, a general store, gas station, hardware store, museum, motel, cafe, beauty salons, neighborhood pub, fire department, community hall (managed by the community club) and seniors activity & wellness society.
