LOCATION AND SURRROUNDING AREA:

The „Upper Columbia Valley“ is the source of the mighty Columbia River, which meanders over 2000 km to Portland OR, USA. The valley runs along the west side of the Rockies in a northwesterly direction, connecting with 6 National Parks (Kootenay Ntl Park, Yoho Ntl Park, Banff Ntl Park, Jasper Ntl. Park, Mt. Revelstoke- und Glacier Ntl. Park). Golden is an outdoor Eldorado with all the classic summer and winter sports possibilities. South-east, numerous small lakes, streams and rivers stretch along the uninhabited western side of the Columbia River..
South is Radium Hot Springs (Thermal Bath) and Invermere as well as Windermere Lake and Columbia Lake, the origin of the Columbia River.
Brisco is the "birthplace" of the world-famous Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH), heli-ski company, which operates 2 of its ski lodges (Bagaboo Lodge and Bobbie Burns Lodge) from the Columbia Valley.
Located in Golden is the fabulous Kicking Horse Resort ski resort with world-class Champaing Powder Skiing and Mountain Biking in the summer.

Beautiful, Timber frame house, large property, for sale, Golden, BC, Canada Soothing stillness, serenity, fantastic mountain panorama in all directions
The Columbia Valley between Golden (35 minutes north) and Radium Hot Springs (35 minutes south) is the quietest part of the valley. The main traffic goes along TransCanada # 1 west through Golden and on the Highway 93 flows the southern traffic. In between lies the little-frequented Highway 95. Golden is "our" business center with numerous cafes, restaurants, banks, schools and hospitals as well as a small airport that serves as the base for numerous back-country lodges. Golden as well as Invermere in the south (about 45 minutes south) offer everything for everyday life to comfort your life on all different levels.

The property is 1.5 km above the Columbia Valleý and from the Hwy 95 at about 920 m and offers incredible scenery with the Rockies in the west and the Selkirk Mountains in the east. No matter in which direction you look - whether North and South in the Columbia Valley or the mountains. The access road is paved and is cleared and maintained by the district.

OWNERS DESCRIPTION:

The "Timber Frame" house (classic solid wood truss with traditional tenon joints) was built in 1998 on site and is solid and energy efficient. The 430m² living area include 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms plus a large terrace. Two of these rooms are rented as AirBnB and offer a nice income opportunity.

Due to the elevated location on the "Westslope" of the Rockies, this is an extremely sunny plot. The house has 4 floors: walk-out basement (basement), ground floor, 1st floor and large loft.

In the basement are south facing 2 large guest rooms each with private bath. The view from here is across the meadows into the Selkirk Mountains. Between the two guest rooms is a living room with separate exit. In the northern cellar is storage room, heating and water supply.

The Timber Frame house:

Beautiful, Timber frame house, large property, for sale, Golden, BC, CanadaThe spacious ground floor is accessed from the north (main entrance) and leads to 2 guest rooms (each with bathroom) over in the voluminous living-dining room and the kitchen in the east.

Here comes the "Timberframe" in full 3-storey height to full effect. Framed by a gallery on the 2nd floor and flooded with light through a large southern window front and with a view to the south of the Columbia Valley and the Selkirks, with the terrace facing the natural beauty can be fully enjoyed.

In the center is a beautiful open fireplace, created by local stones from the Bugaboos. Behind the chimney is a staircase leading to the first floor to a gallery.

From the kitchen it goes through an anteroom (coat rack, washing machine and dryer, supply) to the side exit on a lovely covered Timberframe Porch in the east.

Above the kitchen is a cozy open seating area, again facing south. Adjacent to the east is an open office. From here, the stairs lead up to the loft.

In the northern part are 2 additional bedrooms with a central large bathroom. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes (closets).

The "loft" on the second floor is completely open to the south. Again, the beauty of the Timberframe shows it’s full effect. A central shaft brings all the connections to the loft, which can be modified into an additional suite as needed.

Heating is done with a combination burner wood / oil. With the annual wood from our own forest, the house can be heated comfortably and inexpensively throughout the winter. In the combustion chamber is a "preheating" unit for the hot water supply.

Water supply comes from our own rimmed and covered well with enough pressure due (gravity feed) to the difference in height, that even without a pump the water supply is secured on all floors. Hot water is generated by a propane gas boiler. Wastewater is taken care off by a sewer tank and a drainage field. The wastewater plant is twice the size as normally needed to ensure reliable capacity in case all rooms are rented out or occupied.

High Speed Internet comes over a distribution tower on the opposite side of the valley over microwave and has proven as very reliable over the past 7 years. Optionally, service via satellite is available.

The power supply comes in via the conventional power grid and runs underground in the proximity of (50m) around the house. To the east, the property adjoins Crown Land and offers a huge variety of small forest roads and trails for horseback riding or motorsports or hunting.

The quiet location also makes deer and elk feel at home here, which can be seen in the meadows in the mornings and evenings. The property has 2 direct neighbors, one north and one east, both out of sight and earshot. Furthermore, 2 other neighbors are further "down", one of which is a beekeeper producing outstanding organic honey!
