"Vinteri" property, 17.9 ha. Photo fall 2010. Road in forefront under reconstruction.
Temple Black John in memory of forests
is offering for sale “Vinteri”
17.9 hectares of prime land

Location: Braslavas pagasts, Alojas novads, Riga Region, Latvia.
Legendary Burtnieku Lake is about 10 km north of property.
Lake Khegums is within walking distance
Two sides of the property are edged by roads in good condition.
One road was finished rebuilding this year.
"Vinteri" property from the crossroad looking west. Note hedge of spruce bordering hayfield.
The roads meet at a cross road.
Easy and quick access to asphalt roads leading to Matiši, Aloja and beyond.

Description of property: Originally land was zoned as 15.9 ha of arable land, 0.7 ha of forest. The southern edge of the property borders on a ditch beyond which begins a swamp. For the past twenty and more years the land has been let go fallow and has been planted by present owner with trees. Originally a well to do farm, “Vinteri” became a collective farm during the Soviet times. Upon the demise of the Soviet Union, the property was abandoned and was subsequently bought by the present owner. The old buildings on the property, located in the center of the property and surrounded by a row of oak trees, have been raised by owner because of their state of decay. One corner of the land at the cross-road has been used for a number of years as a source of hay by a local farmer.
Old road leading to old homestead "Vinteri". Tractor tracks from removing remains of  fallen trees.
Description of area: About 1 km to the west along one of the roads is Temple Black John. Across the road to the north of “Vinteri” are “Dzerves”, also a collective farm during the Soviet days. The name “dzerves” means “cranes”, of which a number continue their thousand year long residence in the area and can be heard calling during the spring, summer, and early autumn days. Area has an abundance of wild pigs, deer, moose, and stork. More distant, but still in immediate neighborhood, are the small villages of Khegums, Braslavas Park, and the pagasts administrative center at the village of Vilzeni. A recent new owner to the area plans to build and develop a rabbit farm.

This is a reluctant sale, one necessitated to keep the Temple operating.and agitating on behalf of the forests and wildlife. Ideal buyer: one who more than respects nature.

Ask: Ls 30,000
Due to the present unstable financial markets, price may fluctuate.
