Sandpoint Idaho Cabin

Very charming log home on four flat, beautifully treed acres on Rapid Lightning Road in the Sandpoint area. Only 18 miles from Sandpoint on a very well-maintained county road. Six miles from the Pack River store/deli/restaurant. This home is very unique, with a lot of charm and whimsy. It has so much charisma it was selected to be used in the feature film "Radio Flash" last fall. Approx. 950 SF with a loft bedroom, 1 bath, and a three-story tower. There is a large deck off the second story tower room that makes for wonderful star-gazing. The home features a high-quality Jotul wood stove plus oil heat provided by a modern, programmable Toyo oil stove. This home is cool in the heat of the summer but warm and cozy in the winter months! The bathroom has been upgraded with a tile shower and tile flooring with programmable in-floor heat. It also has a hand crafted sink and wooden pedestal. The shop is a 900 SF metal Quonset hut about 4 years old, fully insulated, with a concrete floor, wood heat, and great electrical service. An enclosed, insulated work room allows for smaller tasks and the mezzanine above the back portion offers plenty of storage or can be used as an extra work space. The shop is very well insulated and easy to heat with the existing wood stove. The septic system is a permitted and approved 1000 gal tank with a proper drain-field, and was inspected and pumped in Aug. 2017 The property includes a wood shed, a secondary shed that can be used as a solar wood-drying shed or a greenhouse, a fenced garden area, and a fenced, small log cabin chicken coop. The home is move-in-ready, yet holds plenty of opportunities for improvements and upgrades. Please take note that this is a hand-built somewhat rough old log cabin. The plumbing and electrical was added after it was built so there is wiring on the interior surface and the plumbing is exposed modern PEX pipes. The floor is not perfectly level, and has dips in the kitchen area due to the heavy brick counter and a sagging beam. Most of the windows are antique single pane glass. At lot of the interior wood is rough sawn lumber. The first floor tower room is a utility room with all the water mechanical system and washer & dryer hookups. This room needs to be finished out on the inside. The well is a 12 foot deep shallow well. It is not a problem with normal domestic use IE, laundry, bathing, dish washing, etc, however outside watering during summer months may be limited. There are a few areas inside where you can see some of the insulation and need to be covered.
