Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We have lived in Nelson since 1990. We are both teachers and wanted to raise our children in a small community with easy access to an outdoor lifestyle. We can often be found taking in performances at our local theatre, mountain biking, cross country skiing, gardening and paddling on the lake. We enjoy meeting our guests and sharing our private beach.

Why the Owner Chose Nelson, BC, Canada:
This property is in a quiet residential neighbourhood on a crescent which offers an ideal location for relaxing strolls. The private, sandy beach has spectacular views of the West Arm Provincial Park.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
An open living space which is fully equipped for a relaxing, comfortable stay. The beds are very comfortable. The bbq is located next to the beach with a patio set to enjoy beach front dining. Excellent fishing, swimming and boating from our private beach. It's just like home, only better!
