Welcome to this scenic quarter section (159 acres) nestled along the north side of the Sheep River in the MD of Foothills, only 2 kms west of Okotoks. The charming cedar home was originally built in 1960 followed by 2 additions, one in 1968 while a 2nd story followed in 1997. The house was renovated in 1992. This lovely family home offers over 3,341 sq ft of living space, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms & overlooks the river valley & creek below the house. The southern portion, in the middle of a hay field, features a 3 acre artesian spring fed pond stocked with trout. The pond is ideal for swimming in summer & skating in winter. The property is the remaining 1/4 section of a large dairy, farming & ranching operation. There are 2 barns including a 60’x30’ former race horse barn & paddock. The property is suited to hobby ranching. Its proximity to Calgary makes it ideal for weekend getaways. There is revenue from barley, wheat or hay, which are still grown on 130 acres. After harvesting, the land is used for grazing cattle. The 70 acre upper plateau has views west to the Rocky Mountains and east towards Okotoks. An adjoining 40 acre parcel on the west side was subdivided in the 1990s into 8 parcels of 5 acres by the owner. There is additional development potential.
