Property in detail

This spectacular property is located at Nine Mile on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, just 15 minutes east of Nelson and near enough to all the charming amenities of the historic city but completely away from it all. The land was quietly assembled by the current owners over the past 26 years and the offering includes 6 land titles and 97 acres of land which span both the north and south shores of the West Arm and over 2400 feet of walk-on sandy beachfront.

The north side include 3 titles and 14 acres of incredibly private land with 800 feet of south facing waterfront. 3954 MacGregor is the primary lake front property. It has a cozy 2-bedroom home with wonderful lake views and a deck/patio perfect for entertaining. The property also features easy care gardens, mature forest and trails and an expansive lawn that slopes gently to the sandy beach. Nearby the main cottage is an historic, 2-bedroom guest cottage as well as a new, oversized garage to store all of the toys.

The neighbouring property is 4002 Highway 3A. This tile runs from the highway through to the lake and it has its own 2 storey, 2400 sf 3-bedroom home that was completely rebuilt in 2019. This home can be used as a caretaker's or primary residence. The new home also has a detached workshop.

The 83 acre, boat access, south shore lands consist of 3 titles and 1600 feet of sandy beachfront, perfect for warm water swimming.

This is a one-of-a-kind assembly of land that offers unparalleled privacy and the best that the Kootenays has to offer. This is a turn-key offering that includes furnishings, 24 ft. ski boat, Toyota 4 Runner, Lund fishing boat and Polaris ATV.

Area Overview - The Kootenays

The Kootenay region makes up the southeastern portion of British Columbia and is famous for its stunning scenery and remote destinations. With four of the province's seven national parks, this region is the preeminent destination for outdoor adventures in Canada. The surrounding mountains that once gave rise to mining boom towns, now offer outstanding outdoor recreation. Visitors can enjoy downhill, cross country and heli-skiing, hiking, climbing, snowmobiling, and much more. The countless lakes, rivers and streams provide excellent fishing, boating and kayaking and the many golf courses provide exciting challenges for golf enthusiasts.


The charming historic City of Nelson (population 10,000) has a great deal to offer. This rural mountain paradise has turn-of-the-century charm enhanced by the forethought and preservation of 350 Victorian Heritage buildings. Baker Street bustles with incredible specialty boutiques, famous coffee houses and more restaurants per capita than Manhattan or San Francisco. Outdoor pursuits include the renowned champagne powder skiing at Whitewater, world-class mountain bike trails, golf, sailing and scenic hiking.

Nelson is located 35-minute drive from Castlegar, B.C., with one hour scheduled Air Canada flights to Vancouver, BC and Calgary, Alberta.
