Abandoned Canadian mining town up for sale

A whole town in British Columbia, Canada’s most western province, has been put up for sale and for less than $1 million. Yes, you read that right.

Just two hours north from the popular resort town of Whistler and four from Vancouver, the ghost town of Bradian, a former suburb of the gold mining town of Bralorne, has been listed for Cdn $995,000.

The 20-hectares town has over 22 houses still standing in reasonable condition and all basic infrastructure and it is already zoned rural residential, according to realtor John Lovelace.

The seller is a family who bought it in 1997 and used Bradian as a place to take holidays and work on the buildings.

And while the location is considered one of the most beautiful, scenic areas in British Columbia, the town is a fixer-upper on a major scale.

In fact Lovelace told The Province he has received dozens of inquiries, but most back off when they realize how much work is required to upgrade the town.
