Mike & Pippa Heck - originally from England. We settled in Fairmont 20 years ago and love the area. We raised 2 kids in the house, but they have since flown the coop, so now we love having other families enjoy our lovely home and the area.
We actually designed and built the house ourselves as a family home. We wanted to be on the golf course as we are keen golfers and close to the ski hill as we wanted to teach our kids to ski.
It is a wonderful area to raise children and enjoy family life. We all enjoy the golf course, and the hot pools, and all the outdoor activities in the area.
We love sitting on the back deck overlooking the golf course on warm summer evenings and watching all the golfers go by. Many evenings we walk down along the Columbia river - just yards from the property, or float or canoe along the river. We are keen gardners and take great pleasure in our lovely flower beds every summer.
