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.

Sanctuary

Sanctuary

It seems as though today, we are constantly surrounded by noises and distractions. So much so, that when we find these places where the peace and quiet of the world returns, it’s like we’re removed from everything else and things become simple, and normal, once again. At Burma Road Estates, we have embraced this feeling. On our land, the solitude becomes the forefront and the hustle and bustle of the world fades into the background. It’s our sanctuary.

Light of the Day

Light of the Day

We all know that light creates life. It provides energy and warmth that is necessary for plants, animals and…well…us, to keep living. At Burma Road Estates, we are fortunate enough to have ample light. From when the sun first peaks above the horizon at the end the valley, to when it finally decides to drop behind the Lizard range at the end of the day, we get to take it all in.

Nature’s Highway

Nature’s Highway

Because we are located on the slopes of Mount Fernie, our land acts as one of the last pathways for animals living on these same slopes to access the river. We are lucky enough to sit amongst one of nature’s great highways, where animals such as bear, moose, deer, and elk make their way back and forth between the mountain and river.

Light on the Land

Between the Forest and the River. The area of land along the bank of a river is called a Riparian Zone. This interface between a forest and a river is incredibly important for the health of the waterway and therefore, the plants and animals that call it home.

In a Riparian Zone, the trees of the forest shade the river and limit the temperature change of the waters which is vital for the health of fish and other aquatic animals. These same trees and other vegetation along the bank of a river also provide soil support and act as a biofilter to prevent erosion and pollutants from contaminating the waters.
