Perched on top of The Knoll (part of Silverstar’s top 2 most desirable locations) and overlooking giant trees and mountains, this handsome townhome is just hoping, and wishing, and waiting for you.
In excellent condition and previously lived in by full-time residents, this is not a beaten-up vacation rental!
Boasting the larger floor plan, a BOOT ROOM OFF THE ENTRY, granite counter tops, gas stove, large fridge, private hot tub, gas fireplace, gas bbq hook-up, glass shower, heated floors and a few more features that make this stud muffin of the most attractive in the complex!
Also, there are laundry hook-ups in the Master closet should you want to use the laundry room as your private lock-off (perfect if you plan to rent it out part time).
With hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances, this guy is styling. AND with triple-pane windows, gas hot water and heat, plus a Venmar air exchanger and brand new furnace... this guy is also an environmentalist! PLUS with 3 bedrooms all on the top floor, a boot room off the front entry (a ski hill must), and a den in the basement... he is also a family-house. Win, win, win!
Side note, the next door neighbours are not a rental property.
Can you see yourself here; enjoying the fresh air, snowy slopes, biking trails, breeze through the trees and views for days?
Furniture included. No GST on this property (homes that have been vacation rentals are often subject to GST). No speculation tax in Vernon. Offered at $629,900
