Looking for a luxury home in the Kootenay/Columbia region? If you are in the market, take your pick of one of these stunning Kootenay homes.

We have put together an updated list of the most expensive homes listed on MLS in the Kootenays as of May 5, 2015. 

Even No. 20, pictured here and listed by Carol Ryan of Coldwell Banker in Nelson, is a stunning property overlooking Kootenay Lake. 

Interesting enough, the Thunder Bird Ranch located near Wasa Lake takes top billing at $22 million primarily because of a vast gravel aggregate find on the property.

Below, we give the price of the home and its location as well as the realty company and person to contact for more information.
