With many people leaving the city and looking for a more simple lifestyle, it is no surprise that small town properties are selling fast.  The Creston Valley offers many different home options – large acreages out of town, small homes in town, new subdivisions, and small acreages close to town.  Creston Valley is situated just 10 kilometres north of the U.S. border and at the south end of Kootenay Lake, nestled between the majestic Selkirk & Purcell Mountains. The valley is a unique fertile agricultural region and home to many beautiful fruit orchards and wineries. It also boasts one of the mildest climates in British Columbia.  With a hospital, community complex, public and private elementary schools, and a high school, Creston offers everything you need in a small town.

We searched the current listings to find homes that are ideal for those looking to have a small acreage, but with the convenience of being less than five minutes from town and all its amenities.  Here are our top three properties.
