The big sell: A quintessential log cabin sitting on 4.2 acres just 15 minutes from Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and surrounded by the Purcell Mountains and a plethora of national parks. Boosted by exterior and interior renovations, this two-storey property now has new thermal windows, refinished hardwood flooring and modernized kitchen (butcher block surfaces and new appliances) and bathrooms. Heck, even the external logs have been refurbished. A unique handcrafted wooden spiral staircase leads to the upper level and all the three bedrooms. Two covered decks - one directly off the master bedroom - provide a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the mountain vistas and the free-standing wood-burning fireplace in the living room adds comfort on those chilly winter days.
