Description
Everything about this property just 'feels' like home. From the minute you pull into the driveway and are welcomed by the rich cedar siding, to entering the arctic entry and going inside. When you step inside you're welcomed by the timeless appeal of raised panel wood doors and millwork made of real wood. The kitchen features a built-in oven and a built-in range in the center island. There is even a wood burning fireplace in the adjacent family room to take the chill off after your day. The formal dining and living rooms are opposite the kitchen and provide a spacious area to entertain when more space is required.The upper level contains all three bedrooms and features an extra bonus room over the garage that would be an excellent work-out room or as a guest room for your visitors from outside of Alaska as it is accessible via the master bedroom bath or from a separate staircase that leads down to the family room.The back yard offers wooded privacy and a separate storage shed for lawn care and home maintenance items. The exterior was refinished in 2015.Conveniently located in the ever popular Equestrian Acres, it's an easy drive to either Palmer or Wasilla and is just a few miles to Trunk Road allowing easy access to the Parks Highway into Anchorage. It also is only about 500' away from the community park that is located within Equestrian Acres.It is technically designated to be in the Palmer Junior Middle and Palmer High Schools, the buses that deliver students to Colony Middle and High Schools stop right in front of the home. The current owners were able to obtain an exemption so that their children could enroll at Colony. The kitchen features a built-in oven and a built-in range in the center island.
