The big sell: This centrally located ski-in/ski-out half duplex property in the Trapper’s Landing complex could be perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. Just steps from Sun Peaks’ Morrisey chairlift, the valley and cross-country ski trails, it’s also near the 16th fairway of B.C.’s highest elevation course, the Graham Cooke-designed Sun Peaks Resort Golf Course. The property has undergone some upgrades since it was built in 2004, including the installation of radiant heat, central air conditioning, upgraded fir cabinets, gourmet kitchen appliances and a second rock-faced fireplace in the family room. Four patios provide plenty of outdoor space, with one housing a private hot tub in which to relax after strenuous mountain activities and watch skiers and snowboarders descend the mountain. A private garage ensures that owners’ personal items can be stored safely away as the strata allows for the property to be rented out. An additional bonus? The home was sold with furnishings included.
