Burma Road Estates

Almost 30 years ago, the Shoesmith family moved to the land straddling Burma Road along the base of Mt. Fernie. Their children grew up in this natural playground. Mountain bike trails tie into the Fernie Trails Alliance network. Hiking trails lead to the summit of Mt. Fernie and into Fairy Creek.

With their children grown, the Shoesmiths decided to share this experience of mountain living to a few select families.

The lots lie nestled in the mature forests and meadows of Mt. Fernie, yet the City of Fernie lies only a couple of minutes away. On the river bench directly above Fernie, with expansive views of Mt. Hosmer to Morrissey Ridge to the Lizard Range, each large one-acre parcel is unique and ready to build with full City of Fernie services (water, sewer, power, gas, data) to the lot.
