This house is 2400 square feet. In the 1990's a locally renowned architect turned a tiny farm house into the beauty it is today. It sits on a double lot perched high enough above town to benefit from stunning views, but close enough to walk to town. The floors show the wear of the previous owner's family and will be grateful for an update in a couple of years. It's got all the charm in the right places for us and we love to share it with people who can take care of it like it's their own home.
You will have a fully functioning kitchen, laundry, flat screen tv, and space to spread out.
We live in uphill Nelson. 3 blocks from the rails to trails walking/nordic ski path; 5 blocks up from Baker street, 5 minute drive to lakeside park, 20 minutes to Whitewater ski hill and 45 minutes to Aisworth Hotsprings. We are one block from an elementary school with a soccer pitch and fantastic play ground.
Nelson is the kind of magical spot that inspires people to sell their homes, rearrange their careers and move here after they visit. The neighborhood is high enough up to get stunning views but close enough to comfortably walk down to the shops and restaurants of baker in 15 minutes.... walking up can sometimes be a bit more of a challenge, but for those who aren't adjusted for the uphill walk there is a bus that will drop you within a block and a half.

We are people who live for family, community and making a positive difference in the world. Simon is a teacher at the local highschool and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in private practice. We have two children, aged 7 and 9. We all love to be active in the mountains and with community sports. We also enjoy relaxing with friends on the beach. We camp throughout the summer and focus our time and resources on living a beautiful life. We have been living in Nelson for over 10 years and could not imagine a better place in the world to call home. Simon grew up in Victoria and Sandy grew up in Toronto and Montreal.
