Tucked in the foothills of the Caribou National Forrest, just outside Montpelier, these gently rolling hills provide an off-grid rural development opportunity. Enjoy views of the mountains, valley, and Bear Lake in the distance and wildlife viewing from your porch. Since it is surrounded by private agricultural land, the hunting pressure on wildlife is limited. This property is zoned agricultural, east of Highway 30, with seasonal access off Banks Valley Road. It could be split into forty-acre parcels or, more significantly, create homesteads with tillable dry farmland to cultivate and graze. The property currently consists of two adjacent parcels, and the Seller is subdividing off a fifty-five +/- acre piece from the northern parcel, land opposite Banks Valley Road. Since power is not available close by, each build would require solar power or a portable generator, and a well would need to be drilled for culinary water, stock water, and to water a garden of up to half an acre. Self-sufficiency and conservation are key when living off the grid in a rural town. Experience the lure of the pioneer days, ranching, farming, and living off the land.
Caribou National Forrest and Cache National Forrest are close by, with access to thousands of miles of dirt roads and trails to explore big game and upland game hunting, cruising in ATVs, mountain biking, hiking, and backpacking. Winter access requires a snowmachine and opens the door to a magical winter wonderland to explore cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. The nearby Bear River and Bear Lake also offer great fishing and boating opportunities. Call your Land Specialists for more information.
