A tiny vineyard, a running boutique winery, horse stables, and a riding ring are included with a mansion in B.C.’s Fraser Valley that is advertised for a little under $10 million.
5290 Olund Road, Abbotsford, the property is a vineyard and equestrian estate, and Sotheby’s has it on the market for $9,950,000. With five bedrooms, five baths, towering ceilings, and views of Mount Baker, the 6,000-square-foot mansion was constructed in 1992.
A mural in the style of the Renaissance is painted on the ceiling of the foyer, and there are traditional ornamental columns all through the house, giving the interior of the house the appearance of an Italian vineyard estate house.
The house is simply a portion of the deal, according to listing agent Paul Hague. He claims that the site presents a special chance for a would-be vintner to establish a business around an hour outside of Vancouver.
People find it rather surprising when they come across outstanding wines and gorgeous wineries, the author continues, adding that the vineyard has the ability to increase revenue by holding events in its tasting area.
A total of 2,000 bottles of wine, including Okanagan Valley VQA wines made from Okanagan grapes purchased and Fraser Valley VQA wines made from grapes grown on the property, are produced annually by the family-run Seaside Pearl Farmgate Winery.
After tasting the wine, Hague calls it “amazing.” Numerous employees are leaving the company to retire. B.C. has been producing large quantities of wine for 25 to 30 years, and we have truly mastered it. Many folks are just plainly retiring. In the upcoming years, many wineries will change hands, and a lot will happen this year.
The nine-acre property is described as being perfect for an “avid equestrian” and having a stable with space for 13 horses, nine outside pens, a riding arena, and “serene” outdoor trails.
Given the current market conditions, it is a significant price for a piece of real estate in British Columbia, but it is a really remarkable property.
