The adjoining great room walks out onto a wraparound cedar deck and covered veranda offering majestic views of the Rockies; a short distance to the river front. Both levels are covered with hardwood flooring and underfloor heating powered by solar. In addition, the great room has a 20’ high efficiency wood burning stone fireplace.

Bonus and Opportunities: Adjacent heritage home, barn and shed are included which could be modernized to provide significant additional bunkhouse accommodation. The large open space land could accommodate a helicopter landing if required. Furniture included; ask for details.
Interesting point. Many of the timbers were sawn from such large logs that many are quarter sawn from the logs (with no centre core). Also many of the timbers are clear cedar with no knots. The sweet smell of the cedar is ever present in the home.
