RIDE or HIKE the endless trails from your own private retreat in the heart of Nanaimo River Horse Country. Only ten minutes from Nanaimo, along South Forks Road, this magical five acres is ideal for horses with its well drained soil, level and gently sloping areas. If you want a low maintenance property, nature has provided a divine "native garden", with numerous species of wild plants and shrubs; trees could provide wood or logs for your dream home. Listen to sounds of rushing water from Boulder Creek and the Nanaimo River in winter and spring time. Building permit free zone until April 2011! Paved road to lot line, drilled well, and covenant septic areas approved. A wonderful opportunity to live right next to Boulder Creek Ranch renowned for its trail rides. Enjoy summer swimming in the Nanaimo River and drive only ten miles to Nanaimo Lakes' recreation area.
