Nicola Valley Ranchland Estates —Unique Equestrian- Focused Real Estate Project Near Merritt, B.C.

Merritt, B.C. — April 9, 2008 — Nicola Valley Ranchland Estates, a unique equestrian-focused real estate development located in the beautiful Nicola Valley near Merritt, B.C., is pleased to announce that it will open its sales centre for pre-sales on Thursday, May 1. Prospective owners who have registered for preferred selection will be given the opportunity to purchase a home site during the two weeks prior to the grand opening of sales to the general public on Saturday, May 17.

Ranchland Estates includes 87 prime one-acre home sites well-spaced within 900 acres, with each owner’s home site surrounded by protected green space. Ranchland Estates is located within the 3,600-acre Chutter Ranch, owned and operated by the Chutter family since 1977. Phase 1 will release 45 home sites for sale May 1, with pricing available in April. More information can be found at http://www.ranchlandlots.com.

Top-quality equestrian facilities and nature experience

Ranchland Estates features first-class equestrian facilities — including stalls, paddocks, indoor and outdoor riding arenas, and turn-out pastures — and caters to both English and Western riding disciplines. Miles of riding and walking trails winding through the property and neighbouring 12,000 acres of open public grasslands offer fabulous horseback riding for both novice and experienced riders. For horse owners, flexible boarding options allow for boarding of up to two horses on each home site, or more at the equestrian centre.

“The theme of equestrian-focused real estate developments has emerged over the last decade. With encroaching urban development in the Lower Mainland — where there are more than 20,000 horses — the demand for the freedom to ride has escalated,” said Dave Chutter, manager of the real estate project located at the Chutter Ranch, just 10 minutes from Merritt and near easy access to highways that connect to the Lower Mainland.

“Ranchland Estates is an opportunity for horse or nature lovers to build an acreage home inside a working cattle ranch where they can ride year-round in the B.C. southern interior’s natural wide-open surroundings,” added Chutter.

Preferred selection to online registrants begin May 1

“We’ll be offering those who’ve expressed an interest over the last two years an opportunity to buy during a two-week window beginning May 1, before we open sales to the general public at our grand opening on May 17 during the Victoria Day Weekend,” said Chutter, who with his wife will be buying a home site on the project for their future retirement. “It’s our way of saying thanks to the many people who have been excited about this project since the early days.” On Saturday, May 17, 2008, the project will open to the general public. Ranchland Estates has a total of 87 home sites for sale.

Temperate and dry weather perfect for year-round outdoor activities

Located in B.C.’s sunny interior just 10 minutes from the small southern interior city of Merritt, blue skies are the norm in the Nicola Valley; in fact, umbrellas are almost unheard of. Ranchland Estates boasts warm, dry summers and mild sunny winters, providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy the outdoors year-round, while nearby Nicola Lake provides enjoyable summer swimming. The location near Merritt combines city amenities such as access to medical care and restaurants, with the rural country lifestyle to which many people aspire.
