Russell’s Revelstoke Retreat is post and beam design at its best. The house was built in 1976 by the owner of the local sawmill using local, old-growth, cedar that is unavailable to today’s builders. This 4600 square foot home sits directly above the Columbia River with an expansive view of the river and Monashee Mountains.
Trees and gardens surround the 1/2 acre property that is located at the end of a quiet lane, near the centre of town. Shops, cafes, pubs, and restaurants are a 3-5 minute walk for your morning croissant or evening meal.
Enjoy the views through the floor to ceiling windows that surround each level. The home is the epitome of open concept design with no view obstructed. After a day in the mountains you can warm up by one of the two custom brick beehive designed gas fireplaces, gather on the cozy couches looking over the river and snowcapped mountains, or relax downstairs in the entertainment area.
The open concept kitchen is fully equipped with two sinks, stainless steel cookware, appliances and dinnerware. The cherry dinning table comfortably seats eight. An open, custom built staircase, provides a dramatic entrance to the family entertainment area and second gas fireplace on the lower level.
The home is well suited for three couples or families/groups of up to eight. In addition to the master bedroom (king) on the upper level and two bedrooms (queen) on the lower level, we have included a sofa bed and futon for additional sleeping capacity.
A covered carport provides parking for two vehicles with space for an additional vehicle in the driveway. This home has thought of everything, including a large welcoming entrance with ski boot dryers.
