A native 'Lulu Islander' from the west coast - Richmond, British Columbia, I've been a resident of the West Kootenay and Columbia- Kootenay areas since 1972, and have never looked back! This south-eastern corner of our beautiful province certainly was and is, the paradise of all for four season pursuits and a simply awesome area to hang one's hat, for the weekend, the season, your life, whether it be full time, recreational, or to retire.
The 'lakes country', incorporating Lake Windermere and Columbia Lake, headwaters of the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers system, and incorporating the diverse micro-climates and friendly communities of, from Golden on Hwy 1, the TransCanada to the north, via Highway 95 - Spillimacheen, Brisco, Edgewater, Radium Hot Springs - gateway to the Valley from Kootenay National Park and Alberta through the Rockies via Highway 93, then on through Invermere on Lake Windermere, Windermere, Fairmont Hot Springs, the Columbia Lake communities of Dutch Creek, Columere Park, and more, to the revitalized and fast growing community of Canal Flats at the southern end of Columbia Lake, where the Columbia and Kootenay River systems 'miss' each other at their source by less than a mile!
Maintaining a personal office in each of our main MaxWell Realty Invermere offices in downtown Invermere and in Fairmont Hot Springs, I am uniquely able to offer you the area and property knowledge you need to make your choice to make your home here,,, from history, and terrain, and amenities and features from my long residence here, and professional service in Real Estate since 1998.
I hope to hear from you soon.
