article imageFormer mining town of Bradian, B.C., up for sale

By Owen Weldon     Aug 23, 2014 in Lifestyle
Bralorne - Bradian, a small town in British Columbia, is about 70 miles north of Whistler, B.C. and it is for sale. For just under $1 million, someone can own Bradian.
According to CBC, Bradian has 22 houses that sit on 20 hectares.
John Lovelace, a realtor, said that since he put up the listing there has been a lot of interest shown.
Lovelace said that he's had about 30-50 inquiries, but some people tend to soften up when they hear about the plumbing and travel challenges. Lovelace continued to say that he doesn't understand how the town has not been sold yet, and it is a long-term investment.
According to CTV News, the town is located about two hours away from Whistler, and it is about a four hour drive from Vancouver.
Lovelace said that potential buyers are also being told that they will need to spend quite a bit of money to restore the old homes and to bring the town's infrastructure up to par with today's standards.
Workers at the nearby Bralorne gold mine were living in Bradian in the 1930s, but they all left when then mine closed in 1971. Twenty-six years later a couple discovered Bradian and they bought it. They did some work on it and made the town a place that they could enjoy with their young kids.
When the couple's children got older, they put the town up for sale. Lovelace said that he was hoping that another young family would purchase Bradian and use it the same way that the previous owners used it.
