As I was filling out the MLS listing information on this home, I found I was getting more & more excited about what this Pack Riverfront property actually offered.
Let's start with the location. 1933 Lower Pack River Road is just 10 miles from Sandpoint's city limits and a mere 1.5 miles from the famous Idaho Club Golf Course (a Jack Nicklaus designed masterpiece)! It is hidden in a spectacular mountain meadow, yet is just 75 yards off Lower Pack River Road...a well maintained county road.
As we researched the river frontage on the Pack River (one of Sandpoint's most treasured tributaries into Lake Pend Oreille - one of Idaho's world class destinations), we found that this frontage was an astounding 2000 (+/-) feet of sandy beach. ...and here was the clincher...the entire 2000' length of the Pack River borders the Trout Creek Wildlife Management Area which is part of Kaniksu National Forest...an astounding 1.6 million acres.
When you consider the wildlife, seclusion, pristine beauty and the potential for an "off-the-grid" type of lifestyle while still enjoying the convenience of being close to town (Sandpoint, ID...voted the most beautiful small town in the U.S. by Rand McNally/USA Today) how can you not get a little excited about this offering? In fact, while we were at our listing presentation, a mother moose and her calf walked right up to the living room deck! I pulled out my iPhone and recordered the event...not the highest quality video, but proof-positive I'm not exagerrating the magnitude of this listing! (The photo to the right is the Pack River Delta where The Pack enters Lake Pend Oreille...a short 3 mile canoe trip from "your" backdoor).
The location is extraordinary, obviously...but let's talk about the home, itself.
This stunning 3BR/5BA/3424sq ft.log home (with an oversized 2-car garage & wrap around deck), was built in 2010 and is just 9.9 miles from Sandpoint. All 3 Bedrooms include a private bath. Enjoy off-the-grid seclusion with the wood burning stove & elec. forced air heat/AC on this forested Pack River peninsula. There is even an established garden area complete with a seperate well and running water on this 14.6 acre masterpiece!
Happy to announce that this home has SOLD!
