A rare find in the NWT: rural, titled property. The title is fee simple and not just a leasehold interest. The lot is 46.3 acres in size, approx. 30 acres cleared for farming with a 1000 foot in-ground 4” irrigation line and a 100’ X 400’ garden and about 13.3 acres still forested, mostly around the home. The zoning is MG (Market Garden) which allows for a broad number of permitted and discretionary uses (go to hay-river-zoning for details). The property can be subdivided into 5 acre parcels.
It is located on the Mackenzie Highway (Highway #2) near the Fort Smith (Highway 5) junction, within town limits but 9 km from the town centre.
The 1984 log home is approx. 1700 sf on the ground floor and 600 sf on the second floor, with an unfinished walkout basement about 1300 sf plus an additional 400 sf of dirt floor storage. The house looks out over the scenic Hay River but it sits on high ground and was untouched by the recent historically unprecedented spring breakup flooding. (Disclosure: there was some limited damage done to the lower garden and part of the irrigation line.)
Recent renos and upgrades include second floor PVC windows (2011), furnace and ductwork (2011), Roth double wall oil tank (2011) propane hot water heater (2013) Blaze King airtight woodstove (2018) and chimney (2021), replacement shower (2022) washer and propane dryer (2022). The propane appliances have reduced the power bills substantially
Other features include some cedar shake shingle siding, cathedral ceilings, large kitchen island, a second bathroom rough-in in the basement, a large (1200 gallon) water tank with new pump and a septic tank and field rather than a sewage pump out tank (a rare find in the Canadian sub-arctic).
Price includes: fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, washer, dryer, window coverings, 2 sat dishes, 4 sheds and an older Champion road grader
Note: The Champion Grader and sea can goes with the property. This is agricultural land or development property. This is a none flood zone area.
