The Good News: My inventory is strong with quality product, ie., Lot 3 in the waterfront community of Whiskey Jack Circle is back on the market!
The Bad News: The pending sale for Lot 3 Whiskey Jack Circle fell through. It’s back on the market.
The Best News: The new price of $397,700 leads the market for Lake Pend Oreille waterfront close to Sandpoint, Idaho!
Not only is Lot 3 back on the market, but the American Coots are back in Kootenai Bay! These guys invade our lake every Fall with a vengeance as tens of thousands of coots gather together to prepare for their migration south. Since Lake Pend Oreille rarely freezes over, the coots have been known to hang around well into Winter. I’ve never eaten a coot, but I hear coots are a mainstay in Cajun gumbo. (Note the swarming coots in the photo above.)
The coots are great fun to watch, especially as the eagles dive bomb their swarm (called covers or rafts) but the coots are not really the reason to consider waterfront on Kootenai Bay. The "Bay" is the reason to buy on Kootenai Bay!
Kootenai Bay is located a mere 3 miles by boat from City Beach in downtown Sandpoint. Sandpoint's city limits are a mere 3 miles by car. Even better, with the city council approval of the new Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail, Kootenai Bay is a mere 3 miles by foot or bike along a spectacularly scenic shoreline trail! The comprehensive Concept Plan for the Pend d'Oreille Bay Trail is linked here - PEND d'OREILLE BAY TRAIL CONCEPT PLAN. (Thank you to Dann Hall, local photographer for his inspirational photos supporting this great enterprise! Dann's website is a "must view" for anyone who loves Sandpoint.)
Moreover, Lot 3 has 115' of prime waterfront with a trex dock system already installed! The building site offers a level building footprint or the option of building a daylight/walkout utilizing the bank of the lot. 115' at $397,700 comes to $3,458 per waterfront foot...that's an amazing deal.
LOT 3 WHISKEY JACK CIRCLE...YOUR DREAM IS ALMOST A REALITY.
