Banks Valley Road Montpelier ID 83254

  • MLS #: 572698
  • Status:


Tucked in the foothills of the Caribou National Forrest, just outside of Montpelier, these gently rolling hills provide an off the grid rural development opportunity. Enjoy views of the mountains, valley and Bear Lake in the distance and wildlife viewing from your porch. Since it is surrounded by private agricultural land, the hunting pressure on wildlife is limited. East of highway 30 with seasonal access off Banks Valley Road, this property is zoned agricultural and could be split into forty-acre parcels or larger to create homesteads with tillable dry farmland to cultivate and / or graze. The property currently consists of two adjacent parcels and the Seller is subdividing off a fifty-five +- acre piece from the northern parcel, land which lies opposite Banks Valley Road. Since power is not available close by, each build would require solar power or portable generator and a well would need to be drilled for culinary water, stock water and to water a garden of up to half an acre. Self-sufficiency and conservation are key when living off the grid in a rural town. Experience the lure of the pioneer days, ranching, farming and living off the land. Caribou National Forrest and Cache National Forrest are close by with access to thousands of miles of dirt roads and trails to explore big game and upland game hunting, cruising in ATVs, mountain biking, hiking and backpacking. Winter access requires a snowmachine and opens the door to a magical winter wonderland to explore cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. The nearby Bear River and Bear Lake offer great fishing and boating opportunities as well.
