WELCOME to our beautiful home. Our home overlooks the picturesque Burrard Inlet that is part of the Pacific Ocean. Vaulted 16 ft ceilings allow amazing light through the 2400 sq. ft. home.The home faces southwest with exceptional views of the water. Our home has been lovingly designed and decorated with attention to detail. Gardens are maintenance free with grasses, rocks and flowers in typical Okanagan style with an underground watering system. A 10 min. drive brings you to a beautiful fresh water lake with beachs and swimming. There are 3 lakes & parks close to our home with lots of hiking trails.Though we have wonderful fine dining restaurants in our community we are only 14kms from Vancouver with an abundance of restaurants of your choice. Vancouver is a very clean city and has been voted for years the best city to live in. The city is multticultural and we have restaurants and food from everywhere in the world. You'll find many theatres, museums,sports arenas & world class shopping. There are several transit systems that will take you from Port Moody to Vancouver in approx 30 mins. Locally we have Grouse Mountain where the lifts open in October but we are only 90 minutes from Whistler/Blackcombe ski resort whiich is open all year & known for the best skiing in the world. We are 1/2 hour from the USA border with lots of shopping & the best Mexican meals.There are an abundance of beautiful islands to explore and the B.C. Ferry System can take you & your car to Victoria on Vancouver Island for the day or a getaway or perhaps some whale watching. We live where the mountains meet the ocean so it is not unusual to see eagles flying over the water, seals fishing for salmon or even a black bear. The area of the world we live has a very moderate temperature. Our summers do not get too hot (approx. 23c to 33c) they are not humid and our winters are also mild. Ideal really. We love where we live and know you will too.
