First off - this is not just any piece of ground. It is, by our standards, "special". Consider these points: It borders the East boundary of the Town of Cochrane. The South portion, which is on Big Hill Rd. is flat & open to the West & South. Yes, the views are superb. The balance of the land is covered with a mix of Deciduous and Coniferous which can only be described as "forested "land which, in part, slopes down to the Retreat Rd. which is the northern boundary. On the West side, the slope conditions appear to not be so severe and if forest is what you want, forest is what you'll get on this part of the property. In other words, we have lots of diversity with, flat open spaces that should be easy to subdivide, heavily wooded areas with a slope to the north and more of the same to the West, again on Retreat Rd. Oh yes, the older home is accessible from the Retreat Rd. as well and it is a good place to park if you want to walk around. Please note, if you go inside the house there is an open and unfinished stairwell and also, please remember, we're selling a great piece of land here, not an old, home that's seen much better days. Lastly, everyone wants to know about water and this property, if developed in time, will likely require hookup to a water pipeline. Lastly, buyers should be aware that this property for some unknown reason has never been included in the Bearspaw Area Structure Plan (ASP) and the Seller has asked the M.D. for it to be done.
