Description
4 Bedrooms plus an office within this Original 1960's hand chipped log construction homestead with larger structure from the 80's and updates through out the years.Mother-in-law apartment w/ separate kitchenette. Open space design in main living area. Original river rock chimney and wood stove.Master bedroom has and private access to a 4 person garden Jacuzzi. Endless swim spa on first floor. For last 11 years the sellers have established a National Wildlife Federation back yard certificate for this property. Natural Springs come up on this 2 level property feeding a stream, pond, and lower property stream which also ends on the property going into bedrock. This natural design includes four 12'x3' raised planter beds with lilies, perennials, 4 different lilac trees, and 4 raised rock perennial beds, including eatable rhubarb and shade perennials. In addition there is 4 areas of raspberries for easy picking in the fall.There is an occasional moose that will drink from the pond, a warren of rabbits that live on the lower property, 6 swallows that return every spring (for the past 11 years) to the box above the garage. Mallard ducks will stop by in early spring to the pond as well as a resident white Alaska mink family that has been seen living under the historical shed on the property. In the past 11 years there has only been one bear seen by the driveway top walking down the hill. Owls can be heard a few times in the winter. Rabbits feel very safe here and you might spot one in the morning near the porch or pine trees. The owners have grown violas each year to feed the rabbits. A robin couple returns in the spring and will make a new nest each year in the pine trees. 2 stellar blue jays will stop by in September for peanuts.You will love this home and its natural playground. It's a natural wild crafter and an Alaskan Family's dream home. For last 11 years the sellers have established a National Wildlife Federation back yard certificate for this property.
