Nimpo Lake, 1920 Otter Road

Nimpo Lake, 1920 Otter Road

Lakefront log home on 1.47 acres! Nimpo Lake is 300km west of Williams Lake in the Chilcotin District. Only a small portion of the lake is accessible by road, with most of the properties on the lake being accessed by float plane. Nimpo Lake is in fact referred to as The Floatplane Capital of British Columbia.

This property sits at the entrance to the “Short Arm” of Nimpo Lake on the eastern shoreline, providing easy access to the main body of the lake. Highway 20, which runs between Williams Lake and Bella Coola on the west coast, passes this side of Nimpo Lake. There is limited road access which is better in summer, this property is best accessed by float plane.

The acreage has been cleared except for a strip of trees along the southern boundary, offering stunning views across the lake and taking in the small islands out front, the western shore of the lake and the large Main Arm of the lake. The shoreline is low bank with typical lake vegetation at the edge. A float plane ramp sits adjacent to the dock. A road connecting all the neighbouring properties fronts the eastern edge of the boundary.

The main residence is a 4560sqft log home built to the highest standards. It offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, as well as an open concept living space on the main level and an additional large living room on the lower level.

The master suite features a private den, balcony and fireplace, all on the upper loft level.

The kitchen was custom built and has top of the line appliances, including a stainless steel 4 burner range and oven, a stainless steel dishwasher, a Heartland fridge and a Heartland cookstove. Light wood lower and upper cabinetry with tile counter and backsplash create a bright and attractive space for cooking and entertaining. There is a separate pantry off the kitchen.

The great room is bright and airy, with vaulted ceilings and large windows facing the lake. A stone fireplace and chimney divides this living space from an office tucked in beside the stairs.

Downstairs offers 2 bedrooms, a living room complete with bar, and cold storage. Sliding doors provide access to the outside from this level.

A 1316sqft deck runs along the lakeside of the house, offering plenty of space for outdoor living.

A second residence sits closer to the lake and to the side of the home. This log house offers two bedrooms and an open living space with a wood stove, kitchen and dining area that opens onto a wood deck overlooking the dock and the lake.

The 28x34 workshop sits at the back of the property and allows for car storage or for workshop space. It has a woodstove and a bathroom, offering lots of opportunity to develop a hobby space, workshop or garage.

Additional outbuildings on the property include a smaller workshop/storage building and a boatshed down by the dock.

Services for the property include a drilled well for domestic water, electricity with the shop on a separate meter, and septic. There is lawn irrigation which is provided by water pumped from the lake.

The current owner has purchased new wood for the dock and ramp, if this is not completed prior to sale the wood will be left for a new owner.

This is a beautiful lakefront property, with a large and attractive log home built to high standards and ready for family living or entertaining, workshop space, a second residence as well as moorage and a float plane ramp. Turn key ready!

Nimpo Lake serves as a major jump-off point for many wilderness activities in this Chilcotin region, including fly fishing, day hikes, adventure camps and more. The Chilcotin region encompasses a vast region of lakes and small communities between the Coast Mountains and the Fraser River, and offers incredible wilderness adventure. The two main service centres would be Bella Coola in the west or Williams Lake to the east, while the small town of Anahim Lake is just north of Nimpo Lake on Highway 20.
