Description
A mountainside log home on 2.57 acres in desirable low wind area, this home is a modern homesteader's dream. Nestled in a phenomenal gardening area, this property has a large established vegetable garden plot, strawberry patch, raspberry patch, rhubarb and beautiful lilac trees. The sparsely wooded yard offers filtered views of Lazy Mountain, Matanuska Peak and Pioneer Peak. Moose and grouse... frequently wander through the yards and the barn, chicken coop, and fenced pastures are ready for goats, pigs and chickens. The house is a cozy log home with a full basement, and several rooms that could serve as a home office, studio, project room or guest room. The master bedroom is upstairs with a beautiful balcony overlooking the gardens - perfect for enjoying your morning cup of coffee. Two additional bedrooms with a kitchenette and bathroom are downstairs. There is an 18x40 detached garage with full benches, electricity and a wood stove and an insulated well house with heat, electricity and water. On the back of the property there is a two story, 1,536 square foot, unfinished building that could be completed as a shop, art studio, or a facility for a home based business. Lazy Mountain provides wonderful access to the Valley's premier recreation - Hatcher Pass, Jim Creek, horse trails, Butte hiking trail, etc. Highly south after Butte and Palmer schools. frequently wander through the yards and the barn, chicken coop, and fenced pastures are ready for goats, pigs and chickens.
