The big sell: According to agent Liz Forster, the buyers of this three-level Sun Peaks home — they hail from Australia — were attracted by the friendly, welcoming nature of the town and its inhabitants, as well as the ski-in, ski-out access that the property enjoys. The fully furnished home has three separate self-contained living areas that provide personal use and/or rental revenue opportunities. There is a two-bedroom suite on the lower level, together with a studio/caretaker suite. The layout is well proportioned and the south-facing views take in the village and Mount Morrisey. An indoor sauna and outdoor hot tub ensure that tired limbs are revived at the end of a full day on the slopes. As well, there is plenty of relaxation and entertaining space, with an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area on the main floor. The property is near the top of Sunburst Drive, which is a quick slide to the main lift area, and a short walk from the village.
