This new and very modern house is set in a grove of large hemlock trees in the quiet Virgin Creek neighborhood of Girdwood. The property includes an exterior wood fired sauna and hot tub set under the lush hemlock canopy. Large ceiling to floor windows open the house interior to the surrounding forest (squirrel ballet at unscheduled times).
The second floor balcony makes for a pleasant perch to observe the landscape or wildlife including the occasional bear. The polished concrete radiant-heat floor and gas fireplace ensure warm days and cozy nights.
Three bedrooms, a pullout bed, a small loft and plenty of couches provide comfortable sleeping for 8 to 10. or friends and endless floor space and couches for your entourage or security detail. The “kids” bedroom has two sets of bunk beds. A large gas range and espresso machine anchor the fully equipped modern kitchen. A granite breakfast bar and large dining table adjoin the living room.
Furniture includes multiple leather sofas and chaise lounges set next to the huge fully opening windows. Perfect for the serious reader. A central stereo system accesses your personal music via the wireless Ipod docker or taps into the quirky funk of the reformed local pirate radio station.
Sound flows through the house and even feeds the exterior sauna! You have not lived until you've danced in the steamy fog of the sauna entry. A heated jacuzzi is in the third floor bath. The house first floor includes a major gear and equipment room and a European-style drying closet that takes care of any equipment drying needs. The recreation room/garage includes a Foosball table and a ski waxing bench.
Two large screen cable TVs and high speed internet. A fax and printer are also available. Wireless internet is also provided for your personal laptop. Cellular phone service for most carriers can be received at the house.
