Truly strategic individuals preparing a safe retreat know that proximity to an international border could prove a life-saver. Add to that access to plenty of clean water, vegetation, firewood and copious space between you and your nearest neighbor, and you've got the recipe for great security and survivability options. This quality log home set on 21 prolific mountain acres is barely a mile to the Canadian border (unofficial crossing, just farmland) and a short 15 minute drive to the official crossing. The house is almost off-grid, but can be made truly off-grid with an additional $7500 to the price. This meticulously cared for log home has its own well, septic and new backup generator. Meanwhile, enjoy all the amenities of modern living with radiant heat tile floors, commercial grade stainless steel wok room, 2 clawfoots, skylights, internet satellite dish, hickory cabinets, top of the line BlazeKing stove, all adding charm. Covered front porch and large sun room that opens to the back deck with beautiful views of the mountains. 30 minutes to Mt. Baker ski area, 35 minutes to Bellingham, 1 1/2 hour to Vancouver, Canada. NWMLS# 526707.
