Calgary Herald New Condos - - Recre­ation & Investment Prop­er­ties -

ive me land, lots of land un­der starry skies above,

Don’t fence me in.” The 1934 Cole Porter/Bob Fletcher song Don’t Fence Me In could have been writ­ten specif­i­cally for Cal­gar­i­ans Candy and John An­ders.

The cou­ple looked in B.C. and Al­berta for a lengthy pe­riod with their de­tailed list of cri­te­ria to find the per­fect re­tire­ment home — and that list had na­ture writ­ten all over it.

“We wanted recre­ation at our foot­step, and a place that was not at the end of a road, but had in­ter­est­ing day trips around it,” says John.

“We like neigh­bours, but we wanted a bit of sep­a­ra­tion be­tween prop­er­ties, and a place where our friends and fam­ily would want to come.”

The wish list in­cluded a prop­erty with views, with moun­tains a pref­er­ence.

“It was very hard to find in the peak of the boom,” John says. “There were vis­ually-pleas­ing prop­er­ties, but not at a rea­son­able price.”

But when they made their way from Ver­non all the way down to Osoy­oos, they fi­nally found their dream lo­ca­tion.

“We have three and a half acres of land on Anar­chist Mountain just above Osoy­oos on the eastern side in Re­gal Ridge de­vel­op­ment.”
