Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: The owner grew up in this area, and has worked as an Acute Care Paramedic for 40 years. He, and his wife purchased and moved the old church building from a small community 30 miles away, then gutted it and totally renovated it into their home, which is now the lodge. They are friendly, multi-talented, individuals that have developed the property, including a 2 room cabin near the river, in the ensuing years, and are planning further exciting developments. They have 5 grown children and now 12 grandchildren, and an interesting assortment of animals on the farm.
Why the Owner Chose Waterton Park: Prior to purchasing, we had long enjoyed walking on this piece of land, loving the serenity, and dreaming of 'what if...'. One day a realtor was putting up a 'for sale' sign, and we bought it on the spot. Then we worked to make our dreams come true and have built this wonderful place for all to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: Creating a home with the old world charm of hand crafted iron, old wood, heavy beams, and stone, from a church built in 1903. Awe inspiring views of the mountains and river valley. Peace and serenity in the lodge or on the walking trails along the river. A place where we could have horses.
