NEW WESTMINSTER, BC, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ - It's not every day that an
entire town goes up for sale, but that is exactly what's happening with
Kitsault, British Columbia. The price? Offers in the $7,000,000 range are
Located 500 air miles north-west of Vancouver, and a 3.5 hour drive north
of Terrace, Kitsault was once a thriving coastal community on the shores of
the Alice Arm fjord. The town is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and is
situated on approximately 1.5 miles of ocean front. It has been vacant since
the early 1980s when a nearby molybdenum mine shut down. A caretaker and his
wife are the only residents who remain.
The Kitsault town site consists of over 322 acres on eight titles. It
includes approximately 90 houses and duplexes, seven apartment buildings
(which contain a combination of over 200 bachelor, one and two bedroom units)
over twenty foundations for double wide mobile homes, a shopping centre, two
recreation centres, a hospital, a large works yard and a local dock.
The 22,000 square foot shopping centre has premises suitable for a
grocery store, liquor store, bank, hardware store, restaurant, post office,
and other specialty stores. Together, the two recreation centres include a
swimming pool, hot tub and whirl pool, locker rooms, gymnasium, a library,
curling rink, and even the Maple Leaf pub. The Kitsault General Hospital is
equipped with X-ray diagnostic equipment, operating equipment, examination
room, waiting/reception area and a suite to house visiting physicians and
Throughout Kitsault, all utilities including telephone and cablevision
have been installed underground. Pavement, curbs and landscaping have enhanced
the human engineered aspects of the town site. There is even a complete sewage
system with lift stations and sewage treatment plant.
"This is a spectacular location and the potential uses for Kitsault are
virtually limitless," says Rudy Nielsen, President of Niho Land & Cattle
Company. "It could be revitalized as a destination resort or vacation retreat
or maybe a cruise ship facility. A buyer could subdivide the property and sell
recreational homes. The water, the mountains, everything is here - even a good
sized town. With a little TLC, anything is possible."
Except as to title, the town will be sold on an "as is" basis. Potential
purchasers will have to satisfy themselves as to the accuracy and completeness
of all information concerning Kitsault before submitting offers.
