Over a century ago the Cooking Lake area was the elite summer destination for residents of Edmonton.  At one point Grand Trunk Pacific considered building a world-class hotel on Cooking Lake. In the end, however, they decided on Jasper Park Lodge instead.  Residents would ride the train out of Edmonton and then catch a boat to the White Sand Beach on the south side of Cooking Lake.  Today the area remains as pristine and unique as over a century ago, however the Anthony Henday ring road now means a 15-minute commute to Sherwood Park or 20 minutes to Edmonton Common.  All highway driving without the stop and go of stop lights.

Country Farms on 14th offers up that unspoiled rural living close to all big city amenities. This is not high-density acreage living but rather three large farm estate properties on dead-end roads ending on the south perimeter of Cooking Lake. The properties come in three shapes and sizes. If you are looking for seclusion and are too impatient to wait for a shelterbelt and mature yard, then Parcel 1 is sure to bring you to attention.  With a sealed road to the driveway, you will instantly feel at home as you turn down the treed laneway.  The farmstead has a well, septic system, power, phone lines and a natural gas line.  It includes an older house, shop and newer barn.   A large cultivated field makes up the eastern portion of the parcel. It is genuinely that textbook parcel for a hobby farm or market gardens.  

Parcel 2 is 62 acres in total running one-half mile along Highway 14.  This parcel contains a mix of arable land and virgin natural areas. The parcel is your blank canvas – grab ideas and starting plotting.  A spot for your dream home and large paddocks for the kid's horses comes to mind complete with outdoor jumping arena. Perhaps the best part is it could all be had for the price of a large residential lot in the greater Edmonton region. The difference being this 62-acre parcel comes without rules or neighbours.  

Parcel 3 is for serious players only. The real deal being a full quarter section of land.  If you check out the open quarters to the east, it is not hard to imagine parcel 3 being cultivated in years to come growing lush crops on the fertile land less than a mile from Cooking Lake.  If you're a nature lover however, you will want to leave the parcel as is and perhaps run a few head of cattle or buffalo to qualify for farm status. The parcel offers Surface Lease Revenue from the wellsite located along the north perimeter.   Buy this quarter, subdivide and sell off a rural acreage and you may find yourself into the balance of the quarter for a country song.  This quarter is set up turnkey for livestock with good fences and a large fenced dugout for water.

The 3 parcels will be sold using the 'en bloc' platform such that at the end of the sale, if you meet specific requirements to bid 'en bloc', you may potentially purchase all 3 parcels.

Country Farms on Highway 14 will be offered for sale by by way of online electronic tender.  Check website for details from time to time.
