Nestled in the midst of Nature’s playground in central Alberta, this lovely home is situated in the quiet little hamlet of Benalto, close to the rolling foothills, the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains and pristine lakes. It is within a short distance to all amenities being only a ten-minute drive to Sylvan Lake, a beautiful and bustling Summer resort and a fifteen-minute drive to Red Deer, the third largest city in Alberta.
It was originally designed and built as a Bed & Breakfast. (3 Bedrooms, 3 Bath) It ran successfully as such for three years. A separation ended the business. It is a well appointed home with many unique features sitting on 7.5 acres of abandoned railway line, approximately 120 feet wide and half a mile long. Beautiful perennial flower beds and many trees are a feature of the front of the property while the remainder is well treed with walking trails throughout. Deer and small animals roam freely.
