The 560 acres Meadowbrook Ranch is located in the heart of the Cariboo along the historic Mile 108 Road that originally led miners to the gold fields. The ranch is located on a school bus route and is approx. a 20 min drive from the community of Horsefly, BC.
It is easy to see why this property was chosen and developed, as the majestic and distant mountain vistas surround you in unparalleled remote beauty. The homesite is strategically placed higher to take advantage of the topography of the land, and the well-built log home and cattle ranch infrastructure works in harmony with the surrounding hay fields, babbling creek, and wilderness.
This agri-business currently runs 112 head with grazing range for 100 head plus calves ( 338 AUM) from June - September. The grazing range backs right onto the ranch property for ease of turn out and management, and there is a Hi-Hog Cattle Handling system in place. The established 120 acres of hay fields produce 200 tons annually and there is hay storage and ranch equipment storage in the powered and heated outbuildings. There is a walk-in cooler/meat shop for butchering cattle or game and a rustic cabin with baseboard heat, hand pump water functions as a summer guest house.
Every detail of modern living has been incorporated into the rustic charm of the 3000 sq.ft. log home with fully finished basement.
Updated lighting, fixtures and new flooring throughout compliment the exacting level of finished detail in every room. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a well thought out open concept kitchen, living and dining space are finished with convenience, and comfort in mind. Relax and soak in the claw foot bathtub or enjoy a steam in the cedar sauna after a long day of ranch work. A CSA approved wood stove more than heats the home during the winter months. The 200 amp service is backed up with generator and transfer switch.
Extending your living space is the homes large 15 X 34 covered deck which is a beautiful place to sit and watch over the property and creek and take in the views.
Time and care went into the established raised vegetable gardens with garden shed and a greenhouse for growing in early spring and into the late fall. A most captivating and important feature of the property is Moffat Creek. A year-round rocky bottom brook that winds it way between the home site and ranch buildings, offering excellent water to livestock and the homesite with the transferring water license.
