Hope house description

Get a break from the city without sacrificing comfort. Enjoy the house with 2000 square feet over two floors, which together with the surroundings offer a great mix of recreation and serenity nestled in the mountains.

Great location for families to spend quality time together. Go swimming, kayaking, fishing, jet-skiing, or boating in Kawkawa Lake just across the road. Or just sit on the back-yard balcony and enjoy a lazy afternoon. The house is nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac in a modern sub-division.

The spacious master bedroom has a comfortable king sized bed. Watch the sunrise over the mountains and lake from bed. Start your day with a warm bath in the soaker tub while looking at the evergreens and mountains. Two sinks and the shower could allow someone else to share the bathroom with you if you wish. The walk-in closet keeps the clutter outside of the room.

The second room is also spacious and has a comfortable queen sized bed and the view is of the other mountains and trees.

The main bathroom has two sinks. The bathtub/shower and toilet are in the back of the room and can be closed off with another door for additional privacy.

The third bedroom is ideal for children, however could also be suitable for adults. The hide-a-way twin bed allows lots of room for play.

There are lots of attractions and things to do just a few minutes drive away such as playing golf or walking through the scenic Othello tunnels. Plus para sailing and water sliding down the road about 20 minutes drive. And for those of you who cannot live without their gym, the Hope Community Centre provides just that, along with a swimming pool, skating rink and a library. The location is also just a 90 minute drive from Vancouver and a 2 hour drive from the Okanagan, so it is a great central location for somewhat more ambitious day trips too!

This house is ideal year round.
Spring - watch nature come back to life and enjoy fishing after a few months of winter.
Summer - cool down at the lake, and enjoy the green scenery. The waterslide park is only a 20 minute drive away.
Fall - the many beautiful colours make Hope stunning. Perfect for hiking and golfing.
Winter - Spend Christmas with your family in this fantastic setting. The snow covered mountains are breath taking. A 40 minute drive east brings you to Manning Park and lots of great downhill skiing and snowboarding as well as cross-country skiing.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Tanja and Stuart (and our daughter Anathalia) enjoy an active lifestyle. Tanja comes from Germany, and Stuart is Canadian. Both of us speak German as well as English. Wir sprechen deutsch!

              Why the Owner Chose Hope:
              We chose to buy and then build here because it allowed us to create the kind of place that we ourselves like to stay at when we want to have a vacation. We enjoy relaxing together, but also exploring new things and places and of course meeting new people.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We designed the great room, kitchen and eating area to be open so that people, especially families and friends can enjoy being both together or apart in the same space. The back of the house feels like the front, because it looks directly onto where the public beach access is across the street. Just sitting on the balcony enjoying the trees and peekaboo view to the lake as well as the towering mountains to both sides is really something special.
