This exceptional townhome in the award winning Selkirks provides greater practical living and sleeping space in a position with quick easy access to the centre of the resort from a peaceful location with splendid views of the mountain and Kicking Horse trail. The property's greater floorspace and 4th dedicated bedroom were specified prior to construction to ensure it remained consistent with the design and its awards.
This great value mountain family home is offered with all furnishings and fittings with the exception of the owners' lock-up items and some wall art that will be identified when concluding the sale agreement and price.
It is one of the sought after Selkirk town homes at the base of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort: Unit 6 Selkirk Strata, 1595 Whitetooth Trail. Ski or board straight from the front door down to the main gondola lift "Golden Eagle Express", or simply walk across to the "Pioneer" chairlift behind the house! At the end of the day "Kicking Horse" trail will return you back to "The Silver Fox"!
Bedroom 1: the Master Bedroom. This top floor bedroom has twin beds which can be pushed together into a king size bed, ensuite bathroom, and picture window. Enjoy the views from the window seat looking up to the "Dogtooth" and up "Pioneer" chairlift to the ski slopes.
Bedroom 2: the Canadian log bedroom. This bedroom is a favourite with its rustic log bunkbed (queen size bed below and single above). Romantics can cosy up under the grizzly bear patchwork quilt!
Bedroom 3: the Douglas bedroom. This bedroom is light and bright and looks towards the Rockies. It has a queen size bed with a single above, crafted from Douglas fir by a local furniture maker.
(Bedrooms 2 and 3 on the top floor share a shower room).
Bedroom 4: the Scottish room. We have chosen flamboyant red tartan bed linens for the twin size beds, which can be joined into a king size bed, to remind us of our Scottish roots back in Edinburgh!
(Bedroom 4 is on the ground floor with its own shower room).
The open plan kitchen lies at the heart of the living area on the second floor. It features rustic slate tiling, sparkling granite worktops and traditional wood and wrought ironmongery. The kitchen has a large oven and microwave, and a full range of cooking utensils and kitchen equipment for your holiday celebrations.
There's a large open plan living area complete with a dining table and chairs, breakfast bar, sofas and deep armchairs, coffee tables, flatscreen TV and spectacular gas fire in a slate hearth. We've got antique skis and snowshoes on the wall, and timeless Swiss railway prints which remind us of the origins of our favourite sport!
There is a Bose iPod player with a remote control plus adapter plates for the regular, Mini and Nano iPods. There is an audio visual (AV) system with a large flat screen TV, satellite receiver, DVD/CD player and radio/amplifier.
A relaxing and surreal Canadian winter experience, outside on the balcony by the living area. Plastic glasses for your beers and wine are provided!
On the balcony by the hot tub. Please take great care!
There is a phone in the house with local calls (i.e. 344-####) provided free, but you will need to use a prepaid telephone card or toll free numbers to make long distance calls.
Internet and wifi are available in the property.
There is a washing machine and tumble drier in the ground floor shower room.
We keep a wooden clothes rack next to the bootdrier in the garage. The thermostat in the garage keeps the temperature in a 10-15 °C range easily drying clothes.
Heated, and with loads of space for two cars.
In the garage we have provided racks for skis, and slots in the bench for storing snowboards.
There's space for 8 pairs of boots and 8 pairs of gloves! An electronic timer activates the heater twice a day from 8-9am and 4-6pm.
The house is warm and cosy with underfloor heating, electric base board heaters controlled by wall thermostats and a 3-sided gas fire in the main living room - beautiful and practical.
