A large variety of wildlife can be seen everyday. Ospreys, Bald Eagles, river otters, deer, moose, geese, swans, coots, loons and an abundance of fish all live here. Fall and spring bird migrations are fantastic!
The home itself was custom designed to reflect the natural beauty of the area and the special relationship the Kootenai and Pend Oreille Native Americans had with this region. Cedar, pine, hickory, granite, slate and large stones are used throughout. Designed by well known architect, Jon Saylor, The Point has separate 'pavilions'.
The Great Room Pavilion is spacious, yet intimate. Cedar, wood-beam ceilings soar to 24 feet, but the plush, comfortable furnishings keep conversations easy and familiar. Floor to ceiling windows give you the feeling of being surrounded by water. Listen to the lake lap outside as you recline in the sitting area and watch eagles and ospreys hunt for a fresh fish dinner.
When it’s cold outside, radiant heated floors silently warm you from the toes up. A massive river stone fireplace anchors the Great Room. Remarkable for its artistic 'dry stack' masonry, it burns real wood with ease thanks to an instant gas starter.
The heart of any home is its kitchen. The Point is no exception. An immense gourmet workspace allows a commanding view of the Great Room, Lake and guests. Multiple chefs can work freely on the expansive granite counter tops while friends and family gather around the 'U' shaped alder bar to watch the culinary action. Stainless appliances, warming drawer, a five burner gas range and other amenities make the cooking fun and easy.
A true hub, from the kitchen you're just steps to the lawn, deck, breezeway, and media room. An informal dining area right next to the kitchen makes serving easy. Or in summer dine al fresco on the covered deck. The natural gas barbeque right outside the door is perfect for grilling.
The Breezeway Pavilion features an entire glass wall that lifts up and hides above a cedar ceiling -- all at the touch of button. Watch a thunderstorm roll in or walk out to the stone, amphitheatre steps that lead down to a flat, grassy lawn -- perfect for volleyball, croquet or horseshoes (all provided).
The Family Room Pavilion is that perfect escape room for kids and adults. It's stocked with games, kid toys, 55' HD TV, movie and stereo system. As a 5th bedroom, the Family Room also has 2 bunk beds, plus 2 twins in the built in window seat -- for an additional 6 beds. Great for cousins, grandkids or the perfect 'teen' hangout.
The Sleeping Pavilions form a separate wing of the house. Accessed by a long, generous art corridor with deep, plush carpeting and capped off with a solid wood door, the bedrooms offer a serene escape from the rest of the house. This separation allows early and late risers to enjoy themselves without waking the household. ALL bedrooms have incredible lake views!
The Master Bedroom Pavilion offers a beautiful King size bed, luxury linens, private patio, and an adjoining Office with Daybed and twin trundle. High speed, secured internet is provided throughout the property. The Master Bath is luxurious with a Jacuzzi tub for 2, granite countertops, slate shower with 2 showerheads and a separate dressing area. A large hot tub is accessible on the stone patio with amazing views of the lake.
Three additional bedrooms have Queen beds, with organic luxury linens.
The Point at Sandpoint offers different experiences in each season. During the warmer seasons, everything revolves around the lake. A private dock with boat lift and 2 jet ski lifts will insure your water toys are safely stored. 2 stand up paddle boards, single kayak and double kayak are included, as well as sand toys and outdoor games to help with play time.
The Point at Sandpoint - where dreams become memories.
