Absolutely stunning and unique, Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home plus an awe-inspiring observation lookout. The custom designed estate draws the outside in with the masterfully designed arrangement of the interior space to the exterior features. From nearly every window in this home you have garden views. There are lilacs, mock orange, berry producing shrubbery, roses, lilies, and so much more!Serviceberries (pick when dark color for sweet fruit) and Haskap berries (a part of the Honeysuckle family-pick when you notice the Robins gathering or they will steal them all) are both planted amongst the other beautiful landscaping. The covered sunroom is its own private oasis. Patterned to allow the gentle breezes through but to also be a protected from the weather, this is one of the best sitting areas to enjoy nature in a nearly mosquito free zone. No snow, no rain, perhaps a gentle breeze and the natural perfume of all the well established gardens resounds in a calming environment to simply relax. All of those gardens? Most are self maintaining or require very low maintenance. The roses are knockout roses and thrive when cut back (they come back more thick and strong). The lilac row? Imagine the smell (they are different types of lilacs and have unique scents to each) as you wander about the grounds when they are blooming. The added garage in the rear yard has a concrete floor and a roll up garage door. Although it was used for large yard equipment and not heated, it could hold a vehicle if you choose. The covered 1/2 carport is also to help keep equipment and wood (there was a firepit at one time) out of the weather. Extra storage is always welcome in Alaska! The large room near the hot tub was used as a garden room and that is where the homeowners started and cultivated the plantings in the yard and for the home. It was filled with lovely plants, and, in the winter, they still had their lush botanical sanctuary. Notice the drain in the floor? That is also purposefully placed for the seedlings and trees (really-a full sized Ficus tree lived in this room). The massive space next to the garage could be converted to bedrooms (or use it as a huge bedroom), an in-law suite, media room, game room or used as the owners did-a workshop. This home has a 4-bedroom rated septic system (as rated when constructed). The custom spiral staircase is from York and when this home was built in 2009 it cost $12,000 without installation or shipping from Maine. If you notice most spiral stairs are built around a center post not this one. York is known for the double helix design with two handrails, more usable tread space in a more comfortable safe and practical stare. The staircase was shipped from Maine to Alaska all fully assembled. Imagine what that looked like! For more information go to www.yorkspiralstair.com Come on up the stairs to the observatory. There are plenty of window to watch the birds, the northern lights or just bring a pillow and have your own hideaway! There is extra storage under the built-in platform too. This room is 18 ft by 8 ft. There's a niche at the top of the stairs you might not notice. When you go up the spiral, be sure to look at it. You will also notice all the concrete and exposed aggregate concrete around the home, the patio, and the walkway. This was also specifically designed and had been reinforced or thickened. It is in beautiful shape! There is not another home like this one! It is custom and distinctive. It simply exudes both elegance and your own private garden sanctuary.
