Own a Slice of Kootenay Gold Rush History

314 Fir Street, Ymir

Reduced for quick sale! Quick possession possible, and plenty of development upside.

A great opportunity to own a slice of the Kootenay Gold Rush history with this charming and soulful property. Affordable living only 20 minutes from Nelson and 10 minutes from Whitewater Ski Resort along the quietest highway commute into Nelson. A rare find at an affordable price.

This is a private property tucked away at the end of the road in the town of Ymir, with a strong sense of community and full of young families. Famous for the Tiny Lights Festival, this is a creative and musical community with a cafe and store as well as the fabulous Ymir Bakery which doubles as Post Office. There is also the Ymir Hotel with a well known art collection which hosts regular music and fun nights.

Tucked up alongside a strip of forested Crown land that won’t be developed on. The property has two entrance as it spans the whole block between the two streets- so plenty of parking and access for future guests and projects. The main entrance to the two bedroom rancher/cabin is fenced and gated with wonderful neighbours that have renovated and fenced the neighbouring home.

All the buildings on the property are original 1898 builds with no bad taste 1970s renovations. As well as the two bedroom cabin/rancher there is a woodshed and a the original three bedroom house that is waiting to be restored. This adds huge value as it is an original historical Ymir building and a great project for the right person. Affordable living and/or a great investment for a carpenter or someone with vision and energy.

RDCK says lots 13 and 16 can be consolidated as a separate title for a new build.
