About our home
This is an older log home that we are currently renovating. Downstairs will feature large open plan living, dining, and kitchen areas. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms and 2 full baths. Another shower room downstairs is next to the door leading to the very private hot tub which will have lovely views down the valley. The 8 acres are a hilly mixture of open meadows and trees with a spring-fed stream flowing year round. Out the back gate is direct access to miles of forest trails that are ideal for both summer hiking and mountain biking or cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. A seven minute drive leads to the funky town of Golden, BC. Known internationally for its unparalleled helicopter skiing (the legendary Bugaboos) and daredevil mountain bike races Golden is also home to world class white water rafting and paragliding sites. Kicking Horse Resort is 15 minutes from the house and is an excellent and uncrowded resort for experts and beginners alike. Lake Louise, popular in both summer and winter is a spectacular 40 minute drive away. This home will be ready for swap from March 2013. We also have our main residence in Nairobi, Kenya. Both are available for non-simultaneous swaps.
