Where it is

6308 Ash Road, Wasa, British Columbia


The location

Wasa Lake is a popular family vacation destination for visitors and locals alike. It’s an especially warm swimming lake in the Kootenays, making it ideal for swimming, waterskiing, paddling, fishing and boating. Surrounding the lake are sweeping mountain views and vast open nature. This home is just .5 kilometres from a public boat launch, the Wasa Lake beach and the many recreational options around the area.


What to love

The home’s main floor offers a sleek kitchen and living and dining areas with hardwood and heated travertine tile floors. The custom cabinets, rich wood accents and vaulted ceilings add to the area’s spaciousness and provide a natural sense of warmth.

The primary bedroom is designed around a walk-in closet and full ensuite with a soaker tub and glass-enclosed shower. A second bedroom opens into a four-season sunroom, offering a secret sanctuary for a private retreat, yoga space, reading room or other uses.

The lower level of the home is a full walkout with nine-foot ceilings, a home office, a den and a recreation room with a wet bar. There’s also a spa-like bathroom downstairs, complete with a steam shower and separate water closet. Completing the home is the 800-square-foot, two-bay garage with vaulted ceilings to store cars on the ground or in a hoist.
