Off Grid Living is living with nature rather than against it. Where spaces are created to take advantage of natural light, the views and the feeling you want to create. This property built and developed by the current owners has been a task of love. You can see that with the original design of the 2+BD 1BA home - the fireproof materials used, low maintenance, to keep cool & warm by taking advantage of what nature provides, the outdoor spaces are set in places on the property that allow you to experience and enjoy nature. The practical things that are needed-the root cellar, the workshop areas, the fenced garden, the dock, the solar system, the micro hydro system, gravity fed fresh water to drink and grow food. It's about a 10 mins boat trip across Kootenay lake to Schroeder Creek and then a 15 mins drive into Kaslo BC. With the conveniences of modern living like reliable internet you can stay as connected as you want to and not miss a beat with what's happening outside your private oasis. Architect, Peter Turje, who designed several of the local schools in the area had this to say when visiting the property:"Craftsmanship and attention to every detail throughout from the overall design to the design of the garden bench". This 10+ acre property has everything you need to live simply and beautifully. The shared 0.5 acre waterfront lot provides the dock and beach area to enjoy and use. The property is set up for year round use in the community of Birchdale, surrounded by Wilderness Conversancy on the east shore of Kootenay Lake (id:33122)
