Feel free to drive up Burma Road and look.

We were looking for more than a city lot, with some space and privacy but in close proximity to the town. Burma Road Estates had exactly what we were looking for.  The size and layout of the lots gives the feeling of living in the country and backing onto Fernie mountain, with views of the valley provides a great setting. Being on city services made the build much simpler, eliminating the need for water well and septic system. It has been a great experience.

The Concept

Almost 30 years ago the Shoesmith family moved to the land straddling Burma Road running along the base of Mt. Fernie. The three Shoesmith children grew up on this always changing landscape at the base of the mountain, playing and tromping through the woods on a daily basis—winter, spring, summer and fall. A natural playground for children and adults, mountain bike trails chris-cross the land and tie into the extensive Fernie Trails Alliance network. Hiking trails lead to the summit of Mt. Fernie and into Ferry Creek and continuing to Mt. Proctor’s summit. 

Now, with their children grown, the Shoesmiths decided to open the experience of living literally on the mountain to a few select families. The lots lie nestled in the mature forests and meadows of Mt. Fernie, yet the City of Fernie is only a couple of minutes away.

While developing the upper portion of their land, the Shoesmiths placed the critical riparian zone along the Elk River in permanent conservation. From the river to the top of the escarpment will not be touched. Preserving this mile and a quarter section of river bank maintains access to the river for the area’s abundant wildlife and ties into the wildlife corridors left from the selective logging of the 90’s.

Above the escarpment, sitting on the river bench directly above Fernie, each lot is unique, offering expansive views from Mt. Hosmer to Morrissey Ridge to the Lizard Range. Out the back door, the slope of Mt. Fernie rises, inviting exploration. Each lot is more than one acre in size are ready to build with full City of Fernie services (water, sewer, power, gas, data) to the lot line.
