Description
The perfect pilot's and family home. Well thought out completely remodeled home with huge addition in highly desirable Oceanview area. Air strip access! 4bed 3bath 2 driveways with room behind gate for Alaskan toys and a separate entrance for office or en suite. New roof, siding, electrical, plumbing, and radiant infloor heat. South facing fenced yard with Trex deck, fire & trampoline pit. 12921 Aro Cir3344 sqft 4 bed, 3 bath, 2 driveways, 1 office/suite in airstrip community home in South Anchorage. The neighborhood within the greater Oceanview community is called Flying Crown, and is one of only 3 neighborhoods in the Anchorage area that is built around a private grass airstrip. The 50 homes in Flying Crown all have titled ownership of this exclusive airstrip. There are no tie down fees. The strip is insured through the $280/yr HOA fee. This house is the farthest house from the airstrip that still has tie-down rights, meaning low noise impact from departing aircraft, but complete access to use the strip. The airstrip is 1100' long with neighbors sharing in the maintenance and mowing of their areas of use. Many days when Anchorage is marginal weather, Flying Crown has a beautiful sky to the south. A 30 min flight to the Kenai river, Whittier, or Seward. The closest stores are Carrs, Walgreens, Cabellas, Target, Lowes, and Costco. This is the premier school area with Oceanview Elementary, Goldenview Middle, and South High schools.There is not a more stable, established, safe, and affordable place to live in Anchorage than Oceanview. With nearby conveniences such as Rabit Creek shooting range, city and state trail and park access, churches, Grace Christian School, and restaurants such as South, Firetap, South Bistro, Obradys, and several fast food options, you will rarely need to go far. Ted Stevens International is only 10min away, and the winter drive to ski Alyeska is usually under 40 minutes.Features:Complete remodel with 1600 sq ft addition in 2010 to maximize family usability and ability to entertain with a high trim level and low maintenance burdenNew shingle and torchdown roof in 2010 w 50year Malarkey shingles and fully under layed with Grace Ice and Water Shield.Upstairs was reconfigured to place all bedrooms and laundry on same level.

Radiant heated marble floor, water closet, walk-in closet, and built in concealment large enough for a safe. Three additional bedrooms upstairs - all bedrooms on same floor. Upstairs bath with double vanity and radiant tile floor. Upstairs laundry room (no more hauling laundry up and down stairs) with built in ironing board and shelving.The kitchen/dining has Brazilian cherry heated hardwood floors, white modern cabinetry with soft close drawers, a country apron front sink with instant hot water, built in oven and microwave, five burner gas stove with pop up downdraft vented to outside, new ultra-quiet dishwasher, reclaimed pool table solid slate counter tops, giant butcher block island/breakfast bar, dedicated kitchen desk, full pantry, built in overhead speakers, excellent lighting, and an utility closet with shelving and wired as Audio/video server hub.The living room has 9' ceilings with exposed post and beams, a highly efficient tall "Rumford" fireplace (upright logs) that features a sliding glass door that fully seals out cold air when not in use, wired 5.1 surround sound, floor outlets, and sliding glass door access to a large ground-level backyard deck.Downstairs from the main level is a below grade rec room that has been used as and exercise room, music room, and long term guest suite with easy double door access to clean, dry crawlspace that has been floo 12921 Aro Cir3344 sqft 4 bed, 3 bath, 2 driveways, 1 office/suite in airstrip community home in South Anchorage.

A custom installed commercial heat exchanger system provides economic natural gas hot water supply for a future hot tub or, as the current owner uses, an in ground swimming pool. The house is oriented on the very front edge of a 12,000sqft cul de sac lot, which creates a huge and usable back yard space with mature birch trees and a well kept lawn. A 2010 installed cedar fence with a man gate, dog run space, and covered wood storage on southeast side follows the 55yd back property line around to the northwest side with a double vehicle gate and gravel parking pad to keep boats and rvs up to 30' out of the second driveway. A grade-level, maintenance free Trex PVC deck, wraps around a 14' "trampoline pit" that has kids jumping injury free at ground level during most of the year. In the warmer months, the trampoline gets pulled out and the "pit" converts into an in-ground heated swimming pool. Natural gas stubbed out below the deck can run a future outdoor fireplace or grill. Exterior wood beams and cedar trim highlight the 50 year no maintenance cement siding prestained in a weathered wood color.The front yard is abbreviated with a small garden space and serves primarily as home to the nicest spruce tree in the neighborhood along with lilac and birch trees. This large spruce has LED lights installed to the top and is a favorite during the winter season while providing privacy for front upstairs bedrooms. The front door is framed by a local harvest and milled rough cut red cedar timber porch awning that keeps the entrance well lit and dry. Two driveways provide flexible parking for Alaskan toys and family vehicles. The cul de sac is level, low traffic, and family friendly for basketball, chalk drawings, and learning to ride bikes. Two neighbors are retired couples, the other two neighbors have school aged children that are friendly and considerate.
