A former BC mining town 109 km north of Whistler is for sale. The town is going for the same price and as entry level detached home in Vancouver.
At a list price of $995,000 this 20 hectare, 22 house land has much to offer in ways of future development and possible investment opportunity.
While most mining towns are ghost towns being quite remote and most certainly deserted this towns proximity to Whistler and Vancouver make it a prime opportunity for any investor wanting to try something unique or to just own 22 turn of the century homes.
The sellers warns that a great deal of work is required to turn this into something modern or usable. The entire town was abandoned during the 1970's and has sat unused and is disrepair since then. They also warn that all of the infrastructure was built to 1930's standards so the electrical, sewer, piping, etc, would need to be upgraded.
But so far this property has seen quite a lot of investment interest.
Will be interesting to see what develops.
