The big sell: This rancher, built in 1977 on a third of an acre, has spectacular views of Mount Fernie and the Three Sisters mountain range. In 2011, it had a complete transformation and now has an open-concept floor plan with hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, two rock-faced wood-burning gas fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. The 21-by-21-foot gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, a large central island with wine rack and cooler and a pantry. The master bedroom provides an oasis retreat with a spa bathroom and french doors that lead to a private deck. There is a sizable lower level with a fourth bedroom and more than enough space for a games room or media room. The attention to detail continues outside with a large deck that provides ample relaxation space and steps that lead to the garden and an outdoor hot tub from which to soak up the far-reaching mountain views.
