But Faro is losing a really fantastic family. They are moving to Haines Junction to start a new adventure after spending 12 years in Faro. Their gorgeous house is up for sale and we would love to see another family move to town.
I have said it repeatedly over the last seven years that we have lived here and I will keep saying it- Faro is amazing! Here is what the seller says about Faro and I have to agree:
Why would you want to live in Faro? Families can buy an awesome home here without being a slave to your mortgage! One parent can stay home with kids so you can escape paying those daycare bills. Faro has all the amenities you need, with an incredible K-12 school, affordable and varied recreation, and world class hunting, hiking, fishing and outdoor opportunities. Faro has a strong, safe community with many young growing families choosing to raise their kids here because of the high quality of lifestyle. Live in a place where your kids can dirt bike to school, where the cops are your hockey coaches, and where you can put your groceries on a tab at the store because your forgot your wallet at home.
See! Why would you want to live anywhere else? Sure, you can move to Whitehorse and pay over $400 000 for a house not near as nice, but who wants to do that? Move to Faro and buy this house for $210 000 instead!
This town is the perfect place to live if a parent works away in a mine or oil patch too. Leave your family in a safe, caring community while you are on your two weeks away at work!
Their house has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and has been renovated and updated throughout. There is both a wood stove and a propane stove so your heating bills can be minimal. And the kitchen. My god, it is stunning! There is so much living space in this place! Check out these photos:
|Cedar siding, new windows, big yard!|
|Gorgeous hardwood flooring and a propane stove upstairs.|
|More hardwood flooring and a woos stove downstairs. No huge fuel bills for you!|
|And who wouldn't want a hot tub?|
|Everyone in Faro has kitchen envy. There is even a pantry off the kitchen!|
Oh, and if you do buy the house, I get full access to the rhubarb patch. Yep. Just part of the deal.
