Pure North Idaho! 1933 LOWER PACK RIVER ROAD, SANDPOINT, ID
Kent Anderson, from Schweitzer to the Lake (Coldwell Banker Realty-Schweitzer Mountain, Sandpoint, Idaho)
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!

NEW Sandpoint Home...close to town AND Idaho's legendary wilderness...Really?
Kent Anderson, from Schweitzer to the Lake (Coldwell Banker Realty-Schweitzer Mountain, Sandpoint, Idaho)
LOCATION • LOCATION • LOCATION We all have different motivations for why we have selected to live where we live.  How’s this for motivation: New, never lived-in, cedar home located at 1662 Upper Pack River Road just minutes from the entrance to The Selkirk Crest Wilderness Area and some of North Idaho’s most dramatic hiking trails and rock climbing faces!  Hunting, fishing & unlimited outdoor recreation abound in the pristine Upper Pack River drainage. More motivation? This home is located just 1.6 miles west of Highway 95 on the county maintained Upper Pack River Road and a mere 11 miles from Sandpoint, Idaho and all the amazing amenities of this premier resort community ...including Lake Pend Oreille (the 13th largest freshwater lake in the world), Schweitzer Mountain Resort (rated the #1 ski resort in the Northwest), vibrant art & music community (including the renowned Festival at Sandpoint - a world class music event), a VERY active tennis community and world-class golf courses surrounding the area.  It is ALL right here! The problem, of course, is who can afford all of this?  It can take years just to save up the money to vacation in this wonderland, right?  ...Wrong. 1662 Upper Pack River Road (3,022 sf) is listed for $239,000! ...that works out to $79.00 per square foot! Built with pride by Peregrine Builders...and built to last. (MLS#21100566) Life is good...Live The Dream.
