OWNERS COMMENTS "So take yourself back in time to 1996 when I was searching for a home at the age of...well nevermind lol...this was the 5th house I looked at and, as it turned out, my favorite. Had you been there, you migh've asked yourself why as it was bright yellow inside and out; it had no heating or hot water; and the only toilet was outside. From the moment I walked in and around the property it had a special feel to it, like a haven away from it all, warm and inviting. That feeling has never changed and in fact we've just added more love and warmth to it like we have to each other.
Obviously it has heating, from radiators and a modern, multi-fuel stove, hot water from a modern combi boiler and up-to-date electrics and gas with a smart meter. We've poured love into this house from redoing both bathrooms, decorating every room, laying new floors, putting in a new composite multi-level deck and many other things that reflect the love we have for each other and this house and garden.
You may ask yourself why we're moving if we love it so much; well if we could take this house and garden with us, we would, but we can't, so why are we moving? We're hikers, full stop. Mountain bikers. We love wildlife(as in bears, wolves, and eagles)...We love mountains and hills and caves to explore! So in the 7-8 years that we've been together here, we've exhausted this area of those things to do, so we're off to other adventures.
We hope you, the new owner/s, will love the peace and tranquillity that the house and garden offer, no matter what the weather, as much as we have. May you feel the warmth and love this house offers from the moment you walk through the door."
