Want the convenience of living in the middle of town, but still enjoy some seclusion from the neighbors? This well-loved home is situated in one of the finest locations in Soldotna, we think. At the crest of a small rise on West Arlington Avenue just before it ends in a cul-de-sac, there is no through traffic and few cars to worry about. If you walk just a couple of hundred yards, past the end of the street, you will find yourself on the expansive playfields of Soldotna High School and Soldotna Prep School with all sorts of opportunities for playful recreation, walking and exercise. Not only is it a short walk to SOHI and Soldotna Prep, but Redoubt Elementary is also a short walk away. Your kids won't need to ride the bus or get dropped off and picked up from school! How nice is that! It is also a very short distance to the Soldotna Public Library, Central Peninsula Hospital and a variety of medical clinics, several area churches, neighborhood parks, and the main shopping districts of Soldotna. For convenience, this location is hard to beat!
This home was custom designed, built and meticulously maintained over the years by its original and current occupants. We hope to find a new owner that will fall in love with this house as much as we have. What a great place it has been to raise our family.
The house has four bedrooms, two and a half baths, and has just over 2,500 sq. ft. of finished living space. Upstairs are the three main bedrooms, two full baths plus a large office which could be converted to another bedroom with minimal effort. The laundry is also conveniently located on the second floor, near the bedrooms. The master suite bathroom boasts a 6-ft. jetted Jacuzzi tub and a brand-new walk-in tiled shower. The master bedroom looks over the lovely backyard, and has new custom-built wardrobe closets. The house has many other appealing features:
A large entry parlor welcomes and draws people into the home.
A sunny, south-facing bay window lights up the living room.
A vaulted ceiling in the living room adds to the spacious feel.
A wood-burning stove fireplace insert for backup heating source or just enjoying a cozy fire.
Built-in custom oak buffet cabinet in the dining room.
New tile backsplashes throughout the kitchen.
Brand new GE slate gray appliances.
Large family room that can double as a large dining room for those large dinner gatherings.
Bookshelves and entertainment center come with the house. They look built-in, but can be easily removed if the new owner wants to do something different in that space.
Room off the end of the family room is a fourth bedroom or a second home office.
Large bonus room in the finished basement would be ideal for a kids' playroom, a sewing or hobby room, or Dad's man-cave.
Storage, storage, storage! Besides the usual closet spaces and garage storage, there is a large pantry closet in the basement, a cavernous 4-ft. deep crawlspace, plus accessible attic storage space.
A large deck behind the house for grilling, sunbathing or entertaining.
Complete new roof installed in May of this year.
