The 20 acre 3BR / 2.5BA home, nestled at the base of the Selkirk Mountains, with views of the Cabinet Mountains to the east, sits this delightfully spacious, light-filled home on two levels. Soaring vaulted ceilings and large windows give the Great Room a sense of spaciousness and oneness with the landscape. White walls, enhanced with the richness of maple joinery, add to the feeling of freshness and openness. Stroll out onto the covered Trex deck, take a deep breath of crisp mountain air and revel in the end-of-road privacy across 20 acres of this level, wooded and pastured sustainable homestead block. Stay a while and you'll surely spot a deer or two in the meadow below. Wild turkeys make themselves at home here, too.
The dining area has its own access to the wrap-around upper deck, or you can access it from the extra-wide sliding glass doors in the Great Room, which also features a propane fireplace. The well-designed, open-concept kitchen, with ample storage, ensures everything is within easy reach and the wide counter-tops offer ample working space. The warmth of Maple cabinetry adds a sense of comfort and charm. The Amana fridge, Amana propane oven/stove and Maytag dishwasher will remain.
The Master bedroom which is on the upper level, boasts a full-sized bathroom complete with a relaxing and indulgent soaking tub. There is also a half-bathroom for guests. Downstairs features a large family room with a Renie propane heater whose rising heat warms the entire house. There are two comfortable bedrooms with plenty of closet space, a laundry room which includes the washer/dryer and another half bathroom.
The property is beautifully set out for use as a fully sustainable homestead, with its own private well, permitted septic system, 3-car carport and various out-buildings, including a shop and barn combo which could be used as a tack room and an 8' x 10' storage shed. There's room for over 15 tons of hay in the barn and room for more in the lean-to, though you may want to store your tractor or your toys there instead. The fully fenced garden features raised beds, maturing fruit trees and a handy 10' x 12' greenhouse.
Let's not forget the livestock. The fenced chicken-run and walk-in chicken-coop house around a dozen laying hens and a couple of roosters. They'll happily stay if you want them, as will the two Holstein cows, both 1 & 1D2 years old. There's room for horses too, with two separate corrals with shelters for three horses. The 5 acre and 2 acre pastures are both fully fenced with electric ribbon or horse fencing. Your kids will find the 20' x 20' Project Pen handy for their 4H projects. The custom-built Western-style outhouse could be either functional or simply decorative.
The 100 yard Shooting Range has been thoughtfully set-up, with steel targets and double-stacked railroad ties for backing. It includes a shooting bench which could easily be covered, giving you year-round accessibility. When you're done practicing on the range, you'll find deer, moose and turkey on the property. Further afield, you have access to the Idaho Wildlife Refuge, with over 1,000 acres of ponds, streams and hiking trails to explore, or head on over to 10,000+ acres of public and timber lands, giving you the potential to explore as far as Priest River or all the way to Canada.
If you've been dreaming of a more sustainable lifestyle, it's all here, ready and waiting for you.
