Dual radiant floor heating systems include an indoor whole house wood boiler backed up by a new auto-starting super-efficient propane boiler system that automatically takes over whenever you are gone or choose not to use the wood boiler.
Set in the heart of the Kootenai National Forest (2.2 million acres) with 80% National Forest borders.
Lush riparian area along 5/8 mile mountain stream offers beautiful mix of mature private forest of fir, spruce, tamarack, paper birch and 300 year old cedars. Here there is absolute quiet and serenity in old world pristine nature.
Comfortable one-level open floor plan including great room and window walls with vaulted ceilings throughout. Two spacious master suites. Cell phone, satellite TV and internet reception.
Dedicated space for up to 40 foot south-facing greenhouse with plumbing stubbed out for radiant floor heating from either wood or gas boiler. Plenty of solar exposed level organic ground and ample hydroelectric-pumped stream water for gardening and fruit trees. Wrap-around covered porch plus Trex deck and brick patio offer inviting outdoor living space.
Wildlife viewing meadow has auto sprinkler system and is visited by elk, moose, bear, deer, turkeys and much more. Perennial landscaping around home is on drip system.
A relatively unrestrictive conservation easement is in place which permits building a second home or ‘bed and breakfast’ along with an array of service buildings.
The home was designed to comfortably accept a multi-bedroom/bath or living area addition accessed from the great room (see CEDARWILD HOMESTEAD website for sample floor plan additions). Natural rock fireplace & extensive rock accents. A unique and rare find for the discerning buyer.
