The property is bisected by Highway 23 with 21 acres residing west of the highway (and bounded on the west by the Arrow Lakes) and the remainder (87 acres) is east of the highway. The property includes access to Blonden%u2019s Point which was formerly part of the property before the water level in the Arrow Lakes was raised as a consequence of dam construction in the 1960s. The beach at Blondens Point is covered by high water during the summer period, but is exposed for at least 8 months during the remainder of the year.

The access road on the northern boundary is clearly visible branching off Highway 23. The access road ends up on the property, but starts on the easement portion of the neighbouring property.
The portion of the lakeside portion of the property closest to the highway has a continuous slope underlain by bedrock. The soil depth increases to a much greater extent where the property flattens out closer to the lakeshore. At the Blonden Point portion of the property there is easy level access to an extensive pebble/boulder beach. When the rock point is exposed, it affords a natural shelter for boats from storms. The Blonden`s Point is the only region where a marina could potentially be established for the area.
The remaining 87 acres above the Highway 23 is bounded on the east side by the old Highway 23 that has been abandoned for many years. The two highways are connected by a logging road about 4 km south of the property. The distance along this access road from the main highway to the top of the property is 4.5 km. The top of the property has a large bluff which offers a very unique 140 degree perspective of the whole region and is very peaceful. A year round stream runs through this upper portion of the property and could potentially supply water to residences on a gravity feed basis.
Property is zoned R3 - rural residential with 5 acre minimum lot size. Precedent for smaller subdivision has been set by the neighbouring property to the north where the lots range from 2 acres.
