The diverse opportunities that this property has to offer will certainly make this a fit for many. It can be something as simple as a spacious place to relax on the expansive, covered deck overlooking the rolling fields and beautiful sunsets or getting your hands dirty to grow a crop of some sort. It even offers the opportunity to have a few horses, raise some livestock or just tinker in the shop or the garage and watch someone else harvest the fields for you.
The property also boasts amazing fresh mountain water that comes from a community water system that has approximately 25 users. Its non chlorinated and safe to drink. The Interior Health Authority has direct oversight and regulates this system. Both 10 acre parcels have their own individual water rights to the system which is a bonus, as they are not releasing any new water licenses for the foreseeable future.

The high vaults and solid natural log beams create a majestic and warm atmosphere that will make you pause and take some time to take it all in. The wood stoves create cozy warmth in winter, while the heat pumps will keep you cool in the summer and offer the convenience of electric heat if preferred.
Relax with a glass of wine on the front deck while taking in the sunset or enjoy a
delicious meal on the expansive covered deck in the shade of its vaulted pine ceiling.
You will be treated to stunning views as the breeze blows gently and the deer and elk
graze in the fields below. At the end of the day, soak in the 8 person hot tub and even
