Property Description

Want privacy? Want a mountain view? Want an incredibly landscaped yard with an established garden? Want a quintessential Alaskan house married with a Norwegian overlay in the design? Your search is over, this is the house for you! Your new home is tucked away on the south facing hillside above Chena Hot Springs Road. Be prepared, the words “Wow!†will involuntarily escape your mouth as you pull up in the driveway. There is a paved and level parking area terraced into the hillside. Before you make your way up the stone pavers to the house, take a moment to appreciate the incredible landscaping on this property. It is well manicured, inviting, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. As you continue up the rock pavers and enter the house, prepare to be taken aback yet again when you walk into the living room and see the incredible south facing view. The interior is light and bright with unique features such as a two-level master suite with an elevated bed area and skylight. It is apparent the house was built by skilled craftsmen the more you notice the details in the wood work. For example, check out the dovetail mitered railing at the stairs leading to the living room. The double framed walls are like having a house within a house. You will surely appreciate the extra thick insulation to keep the heat costs down. The thousand-gallon fuel tank means you can buy fuel in bulk when the prices are down. The wood shed gives plenty of room to store dry firewood for the wood stove, again helping reduce your fuel bills. It just keeps getting better and better as you go down the list of features. Solid surface counters with a ton of counter space, stained glass cabinet doors, and a large bay window are just a few features in the kitchen. The top floor has a bonus room with a south facing window that can be used as flex space. The arctic entry will keep the mud and snow consolidated to one area because you will want to be outside enjoying the property as much as possible. The family room downstairs is complete with a custom rock fire surround, a cozy wood stove, and extra hidden storage spaces. The basement is full sized and provides a large area great for a shop space or recreation room. You will not be lacking for space either inside or outside on the 4.77 acre parcel. Sellers report it is not uncommon for local four-legged neighbors to swing by for a visit. Indeed, they had a “pet†moose one year who camped out on their lawn for most of the summer and became something of an honorary family member. In fact, the moose would remain curled up on the lawn as they mowed around him. Only in Alaska right? Bring a cup of coffee with you and walk out the living room sliding doors and take a seat on the porch. And without speaking a word begin to take it all in. You will hear the song birds, smell the grass and flowers, see the mountain views and vistas, feel the warmth of the sun, and you will know you’ve found it: Welcome home.
