New Farm

After 5 months of camping around the Southwest with our horses we have finally bought a new farm and have move in. We have always loved the Nicole Valley in Merritt B.C. and have been looking in the area for the prefect place for a few years now. We wanted to be able to ride right out our back door to crownland. Finding the right place was the key.
Once we had the sale of our home in Langley completed we headed back up to camp at Lundbom Lake and go searching for a new farm. We were now homeless. We spent a few days with our realtor  Brad from Century 21. I had a few places I had picked out to look at and Brad had a new listing he wanted us to see. Brad had taken us out looking at properties last year and kind of knew what we really wanted. He took us up Hwy 97C to a 20 acre parcel that I knew the minute we drove up the long winedy driveway it was the right place. The views from the top where unbelievable you could see right down to the Lower Nicole Valley. This was going to be our new home. We looked a some more properties that day but only one other one caught our eye but are mind was still on the property with the views. We took a second look the next day and made our mind up we where going to make an offer. Well it all worked out because now we are here and loving it. The old owners were such a nice couple they even let us camp on the property for a few days before we took possession so we could finish the outer fencing. This is cattle country so we had to put in wire fencing all around the perimeter to keep out the cattle. We can ride off the property in almost every direction to endless riding. "We are in heaven". Here are some pictures of our new place. Even came with a full RV hook up for our friends that have big rigs.

This is the house from the side where the basement comes out.
