Selling ONLINE Feb 13, 2024. 'Over The Top' will be offered for sale by CLHbid.com by way of ONLINE electronic tender from 9am-10am MST.
The price listed is the Starting Bid for Parcel 2 - see website for Starting Bids and Details.
‘Over The Top’ is comprised of three quarters with a combined total of 470 acres of real estate, all located a mere twenty-eight miles northwest of the Grande Prairie airport. Situated just over the crest of the Saddle Hills in Saddle Hills County, Alberta, these three Parcels are all connected to Crown Land. This sought-after hunting area is known for big game, numerous species of birds, and recreational opportunities, in addition to ranching and farming.
Parcel 1 includes the former home site in the northwest corner and offers two water sources from the existing well and the dugout that was recently constructed in 2023, as well as power, and a sewer.
The setting offers a perfect building spot for a home quarter, whether purchasing one Parcel or combining it with Parcel 2 and enjoying the half-section. Parcel 1 has 125 acres of arable land that is ready to go to work for its new owner - whether cropping, hay, or pasture. After a 25-year rest period, this land has only been in production again for the past three years, resulting in reduced soil erosion and land that is ready to produce. The adjacent Crown Land has been designated as different Grazing Leases in the past and the fences are still in place.
All three parcels that form ‘Over The Top’ are really over the top with regards to privacy. Tucked into the northern slope of the Saddle Hills, with Crown Land adjoining all Parcels, it doesn't get any better if you prefer the outdoors over people. Parcel 2 is the most southerly of the three quarters and is a mix of both arable acres and a naturally treed landscape. If your dream is to have a deeded recreational quarter at the end of a dead-end road adjacent Crown Land, then Parcel 2 checks all the boxes. If one were to make Parcel 1 the home quarter, consider adding Parcel 2 to the mix to own the entire half-section.
Parcel 3 is as remote as they come, yet still offers pavement access from Highway 724 on the eastern perimeter. Build a cabin on this quarter and enjoy the opportunity to hunt in your own backyard; you could drive to your private getaway and bag an elk, all within an hour of leaving Grande Prairie. Parcel 3 has huge Surface Lease Revenue; the revenue alone offers a good return on the Starting Bid for this Parcel. ‘Over The Top’ is situated in big game country and given the significant feed sources in the nearby fields, offers an abundance of elk, moose, deer, bears, and other animals. Parcel 3 comes with unlimited opportunities, including adding arable acres or buying it with a buddy for hunting purposes. Deeded quarters on pavement with a starting bid of under $200,000 have been unheard of for decades.
