Bridge Creek Estate: House Sites

Build Your Dream Home

There are several picturesque building sites on the Bridge Creek ranch for your residence, with breath-taking water views of Exeter Lake, as well as easy access to the amenities and utilities of the village of 100 Mile House.

Exeter Lake

Exeter Lake is a pristine 1.5 km-long freshwater lake, extending west from 100 Mile House on Bridge Creek Estate property. There are numerous building sites along its northern (south-facing) shore, enjoying open sun and unbroken views of the mixed-fir forest across the lake. Views of wildlife can be enjoyed across the lake, including bald eagles, loons and ospreys; moose and deer. Exclusive access to Exeter Lake allows canoeing, kayaking or sailing to be enjoyed, along with swimming and trout fishing.

Exeter Lake

Easy access to your building site is along Exeter Station Road which runs parallel to the lake along the northern property line. Electricity, telephone, water, and good septic field drainage are available to this area.
