The Indoor Riding Arena is 120 x 90 feet and is fully insulted. 225 tons of washed sand was brought in so you can be assured there is excellent footing for your horse no matter what your discipline is. The foundation is flat, packed and free of rocks. A mechanical cow runs from South to North along the west wall for training cutting horses. There is six feet from the ground of 2 x 10 wood all the way around the arena, and that wood has been covered by tongue and grove knotty pine and completely verithaned. There is a heavy-duty gate in each of the East corners, finished in fir stripes. The corner to the house entrance is also built so that there is no corner, but instead a large boot-room finished in tongue and grove knotty pine on the interior of the arena and cedar tongue and grove inside of the boot-room on the walls and ceiling. The boot-room has a closet for winter-wear as well as a freezer. There is plenty of storage there for hats, mitts and scarves in the corner cabinet. The flooring is laminate, to match the inside of the main house. The boot-room has access to the outdoors, the indoor arena and to the house.
From the boot-room you will enter the back doorway of the main home, which has been done in high quality ceramic tile. There is a three-piece bathroom with a ceramic and glass shower with a Charlie Russell picture on ceramic tile on the south wall of the shower. All fixtures are by Koehler. The guest bedroom has two large windows viewing the porcupine hills to the West and the mountain range to the South. A ceiling fan with stain glass light covers completes the western décor.
The great room has two large 5×6 triple pain windows with glare reduction. A large ceiling fan with stain glass is in the centre of the room. The kitchen is large, with an island in the middle. Lots of Hickory cabinets and a pantry with under cupboard lighting built in microwave and fridge, stove and dishwasher. The drinking water is by reverse osmosis. That same filtered water is hooked up to the freezers automatic icemaker. There are two antique stained glass light fixtures hanging over the Island. These fixtures came out of the King Eddy hotel in Calgary in the 80’s.
The Dining area has ample room for your family and friends. The wood stove is nestled in the corner to make sure everyone is cozy and warm. There are two separate areas on the south side of the Great room for a formal sitting area and a family room in front of the kitchen assures you no one will miss out on the fun and conversation in this open concept.
