The big sell: According to listing agent Bill Lander, the Silverton/New Denver real estate market continues to defy the West Kootenay area pricing slide, as demonstrated by this historic Silverton home with Valhalla Mountain views: it sold for 98 per cent of its listed price. Built around 1920 on a 75-by-105-square-foot lot, the property oozes charm. A 408-square-foot separate studio provides a space for artistic endeavours or it could be used as a guest cabin.
