The property is located just across the Long Bridge from Sandpoint on a tree-studded lot that slopes gently from Lakeshore Drive to the lake. The trees are old growth cedars and Tamarack pines. There is 150 feet of lake front including a dock, sandy beach, and a fire pit. The low-sloping lake bottom provides for shallow water near the beach that warms up nicely in the summer. The temperature of the water is much warmer than the deep areas of the lake and the bottom is small pebbles rather than mud but best of all, no milfoil infestation!
The main house is a recently remodeled three bedroom, three bathroom home set up to provide privacy while promoting interaction. Two of the bedrooms are suites (private bathrooms) with separate entrances. The great room includes an open-beam living room with a large stone fireplace, a spacious dining area with a large, family-style table, and an open kitchen.
There is a large surrounding deck to enjoy the unsurpassed views of Sandpoint's night light reflection glimmering on the water. The sunsets and mountain views are fabulous.
A laundry room rounds out the attention to convenience.
The kitchen is well supplied with dishes and settings for 8-10 people.
A bunkhouse-style cabin for the kids is just a few feet from the main house. It is available by arrangement.
We especially enjoy the beach. It is a joy to sit around a fire in the bonfire pit and gaze across the water at the beautiful small town of Sandpoint with Schwitzer ski mountain as a picturesque backdrop. This view is also extraordinary in the early morning hours when the birds are fishing! This is a gest way to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.
A walk or jog across the Long Bridge into town is an early morning or evening treat.
Off-street parking is abundant.
By arrangement, other dwellings on adjacent property can be made available individually or as a family compound or corporate retreat.TripAdvisor property ID 3607875...Read more
