I just finished uploading this House & Acreage for sale, 8707 MEADOW STREET, BALFOUR, BC

New to the market and priced well below assessment this is an impressive, affordable, chalet-style, three bedroom home on a flat, entirely usable, entirely fenced .46 acre lot in Balfour. What more could you ask for? Aside from the beautiful mountain views, the property is located just steps from a public boat launch and Kootenay Lake beach area at the end of Meadow Street. And when you come back to the home you can always have more fun out doors on the overlarge decks (just resurfaced with DuraDek low-maintenance vinyl), or under the garden gazebo and BBQ shelter. The home also brags an oversize 26'X 24' garage with lots of shop space and wood heat for the winter. Inside, the house is impeccably clean and has a beautiful open floor plan that offers 2 large bedrooms on the main floor (one with en suite bathroom), plus another larger bedroom with en suite AND its own exterior balcony. Also upstairs you'll find a multi-purpose loft area with fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. Downstairs, there's a large finished family room that walks-out into the garden. The walk-out level also has a cozy gas fireplace, a generous coldroom, and additional unfinished space for the buyer's fancy. The large lot is completely fenced and the seller is an avid gardener, with many spaces already thoughtfully carved out for the green thumb. There is also a green house for starting spring plants and a large storage shed for tools and equipment. There is also a large, separately fenced vegetable garden. This home has always been well maintained, which will be obvious the moment you walk in the door. The roof was brand new last year, and the home is in impeccable, move in ready shape.
