The big sell: This picture-postcard log cabin was built in 2009 on a 1.925-acre lot eight kilometres south of Golden. It has a private position with a backdrop of dense trees, and far-reaching mountain views that can be enjoyed from within the home and the 16-by-24-foot sundeck. The interior features an open-plan living, dining, kitchen and den area with wood accents throughout, including larch and fir floors and log-clad walls. There are 10-foot ceilings on the main floor, as well as pendant and track lighting. The contemporary kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, a breakfast bar and a linear design with plenty of countertop space. The three bedrooms are upstairs, as well as a large bathroom and laundry facilities. There is a walkout basement, which is unfinished and ready for creative ideas to transform into separate accommodation or an extension of the home.
