“Mount View Ranch.” Commissioned by the Dedecker Family from Belgium in 1912 and built by Constant & Bell.  Judge Chapman’s Family were the second owners, relatives of Sir Charles Tupper, one of the Fathers of Confederation. The third owners were the Helmsing Family, and a photo taken by them is attached. The Hunt Family owned the home for a short period. In 1965 the Johnson Family purchase the home, and they have owned it since.  This loving kept 4 bedroom, multi bath home sit on 5.36 acres.  Many upgrades have been done, including floors, windows and the roof, but the Heritage style of the home has been preserved.  There is a 2 bedroom Cottage on the property for extra space and/or income. Outdoor pool, workshop, garage and carport.  Close to school and grocery shopping, minutes from Vernon but in a quiet setting; listen to nearby BX Creek from your balconies. Property was run as a B&B for 4 years.
