Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I have lived in the area for 24 years, it truly is a delightful warm and welcoming community. The small friendly warm small town feeling is tangible. Myself, 3 daughters and late husband love the outdoors Shawinigan offers, beautiful hikes, clear rivers, gorgeous views from nearby mountain tops. I am a nurse, have been for many many years, I am active in the community I enjoy hiking, biking, running and swimming...........oh and also the wonderful yoga in the area as well! I look forward to you enjoying my home, filling it with fun, happy energy!

Why the Owner Chose Shawnigan Lake, BC, Canada:
This present property was in the original family for over 100 years, we were so very fortunate to be able to purchase it. There was a very old cottage in place of the current house, we- 3 daughters, husband and myself lived in the wee cottage, tight quarters but fun! We designed and built the house, an open design so lots of sharing times which we loved. The property has a wonderful exposure, full and open with sun all day, difficult to find. As well it is close to amenities, not so far to go for the milk and eggs!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the big trees at the back, fun to watch them swaying in the wind. I love that my home is at the end of a wee road, very quiet, relaxed and welcoming feeling to my home. You will immediately be drawn to the view as you enter, the expansive windows can't help but draw you out! So nice to wake to this every day, your day starts out right!
