The House

Originally a Lindal home, this structure has been customised with superior craftsmanship on every level adding thoughtful creative details.  An addition was added to the front of the house, expanding the kitchen and adding a skylights throughout the length of the main kitchen/dining room.  Here the main level is open plan with skylights, juliet balconies and a wrap around deck to bring the magic of the garden in.  Also on the main floor is the living room every looking a small pond, and 3 piece bath with heated slate floors and the master bedroom with views of the garden and large pond. Upstairs are 2 guest rooms with views of the garden, skylights and a balcony.

Unauthorized Guest Suite

On the lower level you have the possibility of a guest suite. Currently used as an office, the suite has a separate entrance, office, living room and library with wood stove. The office is easily converted into a kitchen as all plumbing is already in place.

Garden

Fully deer fenced, you will find raised veggie and flower beds surrounds by a variety of fruit bushes:  Black current, gooseberry, raspberry, blueberry and mulberry.  Established fruit trees are also speckled throughout the garden perimeter including Damson ( great for plum jam), plum, pear, cooking apple, eating apple and miniature cherry.

Meadow

In the meadow is a idllic pond with small island in the centre as well as a variety of fruit and nut trees:  Cherry, walnut and hazelnut. Between and the road and the meadow is a seasonal creek lined with salmonberries. The meadow is big enough for animals or additional fruit trees for a full size orchard.
