So, surely this house gets its share of snow, which transforms it into a winter-wonderland among the tall pine trees:
The house (with exceptionally lovely gardens in summer) is situated on a 2-acre lakefront property on beautiful (75-mile+ long) Kootenay Lake! There are lake, forest and mountain views all around....like this view from the dining room:
There's a large kitchen, but this magnificent (AGA) stove has to be its most stunning feature...I think it's the most beautiful stove ever! I love that deep cobalt blue color, and look at all those separate baking compartments. There could be some serious apres-ski cooking / baking magic happening here:
The house has five bedrooms; here's a peek at one of them...nice post and beam construction and vaulted ceiling:
In addition to a cedar sauna, here's a soothing place to soak away the aching muscles apres-ski:
This house seems to go on and on...but for me here's the best feature of all...this house has an incredible indoor swimming pool in a gorgeous tropical atrium with a soaring ceiling! Imagine swimming in here and watching the snow falling just outside all those windows:
....with a view of the lake and mountains beyond:
With Canadian flags proudly flying in Nelson and all over Canada today...
...here's a look at how they celebrate Canada Day in Nelson.
Nelson, and this fantastic ski house, are absolutely glorious! Happy Canada Day, eh!
