Welcome to your slice of self-sustaining paradise nestled in the warmest and friendliest part of the Kootenays.  An incredible amount of planning and design went into the building of this beautiful Arrowcreek home that can literally pay for itself! This stunning, energy-efficient home offers the perfect blend of modern comfort and self-sustainability, ensuring that you can enjoy the tranquility of country living without sacrificing convenience or experiencing disruption.

Step inside and exhale, as you are welcomed by cathedral ceilings and oversized windows that allow natural light and mountain views to flood into the main living area. This 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home boasts many thoughtful design features, including in-floor heating on both levels and a hot water on-demand system powered by propane. With a battery bank backup providing two days’ worth of power, you can rest assured that even in the event of a power outage, this home continues to operate seamlessly.

The feeling of tranquility is carried on throughout the house into the Master bedroom that has oversized windows and French doors that offer access to the covered wrap around deck.  The walk-in closet is another bonus feature of this incredible master, offering ample space for your entire wardrobe.  Adjacent lies the inviting en suite, featuring double sinks, a large jetted tub, and a convenient walk-in shower—a perfect blend of functionality and relaxation. 

Have we previously mentioned huge windows and ample light? Well, we will say it again, for the lower level of his home showcases a multitude of the same huge oversized windows and two exterior doors, continuing the bright open feel of this basement space. The heart of this level is the vast rec room, offering ample space for entertainment and recreation. With room to accommodate a pool table or ping pong setup, the possibilities for enjoyment in this space are endless.

There are two generously sized bedrooms on the lower level, offering comfort and privacy, along with a full bathroom with ample storage for linen and towels. Additionally, the utility room stands as a testament to innovation and efficiency, boasting top-of-the-line technology meticulously organized for seamless operation.

The front of the parcel features roughly an acre of open fertile land, for all of your gardening and homesteading activities, with the remaining 9 acres being forested with mostly Cedar, Larch, Fir and Birch trees.  The habitat of this forest is home to a multitude of foraging plants and fungi including Chanterelle, Pine, Boletes, Russula and even elusive Lobster mushrooms (which there was remnants of the day of listing!) Strategic paths have been created through the property offering easy access as you explore the endless magic of your own back yard.

Speaking of magic, this property also features a unique Artesian well as its water source, which has never left the system high and dry even during the warmest of summer months.  

Lakeview Arrowcreek Road, is a quiet country road, mainly utilized by local traffic.  The lack of busy traffic creates a wonderful opportunity for family walks and bike rides, throughout the peaceful community. 

As a grid-tied home in British Columbia, you’ll enjoy the benefits of self-sustainability, knowing that your energy needs are met while minimizing environmental impact.

Note: Being “grid-tied” in British Columbia means that the property is connected to the electrical grid operated by the local utility company. This allows the property to draw electricity from the grid when needed, such as during periods of high energy consumption or when the property’s renewable energy sources (such as solar panels or wind turbines) are not generating enough power to meet demand. Conversely, excess electricity generated by the property’s renewable energy systems can be fed back into the grid, potentially resulting in credits or compensation from the utility company. In essence, being grid-tied provides a reliable and convenient way to supplement or offset the property’s energy needs with renewable energy sources while maintaining a connection to the broader electrical grid for backup and additional supply when required.

Adding to the charm of this property is the original “homestead” building, currently utilized as a workshop but offering endless possibilities as a studio or boutique. With ample space for storage and a fenced garden area, this property truly offers everything you need for a sustainable and fulfilling lifestyle
