Slocan Valley Realtor Greg Gritchin of Kootenay Connection understands the benefits of living in such a serene place first hand. He was born and raised in the area and has years of experience helping clients buy and sell their homes. He takes pride in finding the perfect properties for those looking to move to the area for the first time, or to move locally and experience a different area in the region.
The 105-kilometre-long and 10-kilometer-wide Slocan Valley is nestled in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains. The valley includes the villages of Slocan City, New Denver and Silverton, as well as a number of much smaller communities. The residents of these small towns truly appreciate country living in beautiful scenery.
The Slocan Valley is a great place for history buffs as well. Home of the Silvery Slocan, a rush of miners looking for silver and galena in the 1890s, there are a number of museums and places to learn about the region’s rich history. If you’re lucky, you might even find land with a few artifacts from the vibrant mining history.
The area is home to a thriving cultural community as well, with a number of coffee shops, restaurants and art venues, in addition to studios for yoga, art, music and more. If you're looking for a business for sale in the Slocan, or a home for sale, I can help you find a property close to town amenities.
If you prefer to stay off the beaten path, the Slocan Valley is home to Valhalla Provincial Park on its upper wester side and is bordered by the Little Slocan River to the south. It’s also home to Bigelow Bay Regional Park and Winlaw Regional and Nature Park. These natural playgrounds have resulted in a variety of trails for hiking and mountain biking, as well as plenty of places for camping, kayaking, river rafting and rock climbing.
Slocan Valley Realtor Greg Gritchin can help you find properties centrally located to these amenities. Or, if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll find a property with amenities right in your backyard.
