Property description

The Beach:

It's really all about the beach.......100 feet of sunny beach starts directly in front of the house, across the road.
The beach is very clean, natural and private. This particular stretch of waterfront has a variety of tiny pebbles and rugged outcroppings providing exceptionally clean swimming conditions. Wearing proper beach shoes is a must ! The water is crystal clear and usually free of any duck population. Tucked into a private area under the trees, is a 3 seater swinging lounger/daybed.....the perfect retreat in the afternoon. You'll have to fight for this one!!!

The Cabin:
The architecturally unique design is a new build on the lake and offers expansive views of Copper Island. In the master suite you will wake to the stunning lake view that spans the entire width of your room. Enjoy a lazy morning in your king size Beautyrest or join the family for coffee down at the beach in your pyjamas.
Now for breakfast...with room for 2 cooks this kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of. The large island prep area faces your guests with seating for 6. There are 2 overstuffed club chairs in the kitchen too ensuring comfort for every age. SubZero-sized refrigeration provides 50 cubic feet for everyone's groceries and beverages! The chef in the family will appreciate the 60 sf pantry, loaded with serving dishes, apply platters, wine glasses, ethinic spices and a live herb garden. At the touch of a button the steel and glass garage door expands your kitchen to the patio with pond and 15 foot waterfall. This outdoor entertaining area faces the lake and is where you will BBQ and gather around the gas fire table with seating for 12.
The upper deck also faces the lake and offers very private, alfresco dining with seating for 4 -6 and a wicked view of Copper Island and of course the spectacular, unpredictable sunsets.

Sleeping Arrangments:

Master suite on upper floor has 1 King bed with an I incredible view of the lake. Extremely large ensuite area functions as a main bath for this open concept home and features a Texas-sized, custom tile shower with 3 shower heads and a private enclosed toilet area. The spacious dressing area is furnished with wardrobe, sink and vanity and lots of natural light.

Mid-level sleeping: : The Cabana Room is a well-dressed, fully enclosed and screened outdoor room furnished with 1 Queen bed and 2 twin beds. The kids will love the tropical feel of this room and the ensuite can be easily accessed at night without disturbing other guests.

Lower- level sleeping: 1 Queen bed with ground floor, level entry access. All doors are 3-4 feet wide on this level. Seniors will prefer this room with their own private toilet and shower. This room is a bright, well-lit reading room with Satellite TV for movies, news and sports.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: After experiencing lake life on Vancouver Island just a mile or so from the famous Horne Lake Caves, I knew I would always own a lake cabin. When our family relocated to Kamloops in 1999, I instinctively knew the Shuswap would be a great lake to recreate the cottage lifestyle that I missed. It is here that I grew my tile setting and hardwood floor installation business to include many fabulous residences and resorts in the region. Now I am seeking cross border opportunities with Alberta's oil and gas industry and am proud that the "Shwap" is one of our neighbours most coveted destinations! I am eager to share my dream home with this hardworking population.

Why the Owner Chose Blind Bay, BC, Canada:
Blind Bay is a little bee-hive of summer boating fun and great people. The proximity to the Trans Canada Hwy. and extremely clean, drinkable water makes this location ideal.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As an architectural enthusiast, I began the design process on the back of a napkin! Building upwards was the best way to embrace the incredible views of Copper Island from every room. With over 800 sq ft of steel and glass, you will experience this unforgettable view the moment you open your eyes in the upper loft that friends have named the "Birds Nest".
