Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Owners Gerry and Carol Canuel have been married for 44 years and settled in the Cariboo region of British Columbia 10 years ago after tiring of the city life. Country people at heart and extreme animal lovers, Gerry and Carol decided to completely restore a historic building on their nearly 1000 acre working cattle ranch in 2003. After a lot of hard work, attention to detail and devotion to originality, the 'Old House' was ready to welcome anyone who yearns for years gone by, when life was simpler and quieter, and one could see the stars every night!

Why the Owner Chose Thompson-Nicola E, BC, Canada:
After having enjoyed this part of the world for 30 years, it was decided that we would move here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spectacular views, privacy, opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and wildlife
