Laird Lake - Princeton, BC
VACANT WATERFRONT LOT
This lot is not accessible by public road to the property. Owners of the other ( 8 ) properties on the lake, park across the road and boat into their own private cabins.
There is no amenities that I am aware of, other than year round access via Hwy. 5A There is lots of parking just off the highway and a very nice boat launch to Laird lake.
The property is .36 acre in size on Laird Lake, also known as ( MacKenzie-Laird lake ) 91.41' of lake frontage x 91' at the rear by 198' on the west side by 198' on the east side. Most of the cabins located in the same general area as the subject property have the same grade down to the lake. There is a flat bench located about 100' from the lake which would be a perfect location for a cabin.
I noticed other cabin owners have taken advantage of the slope of the land and built their cabin half way down the grade of the property.
Property taxes for 2008 were $328.94
