We have had a private powerline installed along the back (north) sides of lots 29 thru to 35. All lots now have access to BC Hydro power. By putting the power line at the north, back end of the lots, the beautiful views to the south , east and west are preserved.

Coming in from the east is an old deteriorating wooden water flume.
A 110 or so years ago, settlers from England and other parts of Europe, planted a large number of apple and other fruit trees, on these properties we have for sale, and on nearby land, and on land across the river.
The trees were watered from a long wooden water flume, built in 1910, that started at a lake a long ways up the Deadman's Creek valley. The orchards and the trees flourished for a few years, and Walhachin became quite a community with parties and a vibrant social life. However, with the start of WW1, many of the men that maintained the water flume and the orchards, joined the war in Europe, and by the start of the 1920's, the flume and the orchards were both in disarray from lack of maintenance.
And not enough money or manpower came forward to keep the dream alive. A few old apples trees are still visible along the Hwy.
One of the old time apples trees from Walhachin’s glory days, still survives along the Trans Canada Hwy. I"ve tasted better apples, maybe pruning and care do count.
A. No single wide mobile homes, new or used, will be allowed.
B. Home builders are encouraged to use to use muted colours that will blend in with the landscape, rather that bright colours that will stand out, as the Thompson River Valley is an area of great natural beauty. Tobiano, a development 15 minutes west of Kamloops, is a good example of colours that are easy on the eyes.
The beautiful views from all these lots are 360 degrees. The main view to the south starts with a kilometre of green irrigated alfalfa and corn fields across the hwy. Then there is the river, and the grasslands hills across the river, which give way to mountains and trees farther in the distance.
Lot 27 is an L shaped lot lying to the north of the Trans Canada Hwy #1.
It has access off of the TCHwy #1 and Ashcroft rd. It is mostly covered with sagebrush, and offers a fairly private setting, and possible building site, at the North West boudary of the bottom part of the L, which is up against an old unused road called Bedford Rd. And approximately an 1/2 acre of lot 27 lies across the hwy in the green alfalfa field.
It has a BC Hydro and Telus line running through it. This line will service itself (Lot 27), and some of the other lots.
