0BR 2580ft2 house available aug 24

Impeccable craftsmanship defines this remarkable ranch style home situated on 12.5 gently sloping, sunny acres, with 595 feet of Kettle River frontage, home to brown trout, whitefish, rafting, and kayaking in NE Washington State. Easy access to property and river for year-round living - this property is a rare find.

Thoughtful design in this efficient 1,920 sq. ft. home flows through the open floor plan past a delightful kitchen with hickory cabinets and Corian countertops, into the spacious dining living room lit with custom cherry wood pendants, sconces and chandelier. Large windows provide spectacular views of mountains, river and wildlife. Artistic track lighting spotlights gallery walls just outside the 2 generous bedrooms, 2 baths. A simple office nook, pantry, coat room and large utility room complete the indoor space.

Energy Star appliances come with the home: Bosch dishwasher, Bosch washer and dryer, 2 freezers, side-by-side refrigerator, ceramic top range-oven. High speed Wi-Fi Internet offers streaming video entertainment or a computer based business option.

Foremost is the energy efficient construction: 1 ft. R50 insulated concrete form exterior walls, radiant floor heat supplied by a high efficiency condensing propane boiler, R55 attic insulation, Heat Recovery Ventilator, Therma-Tru insulated exterior doors, metal roof, 200 amp service, all quality materials used throughout. Low utility consumption during cold weather, low maintenance inside and out. During hot summer days, maintains low 70s inside the home, no air conditioning necessary. Super insulated, super quiet.

Wildflower wood carved panels welcome entrance to the home. Reclaimed wood creates the entrance beams, interior trim and unique pickle-wood interior doors crafted by an Idaho artisan. Plenty of clean water for the property with a 40+ gpm well.

In addition, there is a 660 sq. ft. guest apartment or shop, fully wired, plumbed, built-in shelving and queen-sized Murphy bed in a 42 ft. x 52 ft. shed with a 900 sq. ft. 3 bay garage, storage loft and 200 amp service. Park the guest RV on the 20/30/50 amp full service RV pad. Enjoy a bountiful harvest from the 100 ft. x 100 ft. deer-fenced garden and greenhouse with automatic watering system. Feel a sense of community with 7 neighboring acreages.

Bring the horses! Quality, nearly weed-free, grass pasture in 8 of the 12.5 acres.
Option to irrigate using State of Washington river water rights, river pump shared by 3 neighbors. Low maintenance of a mid-sized acreage means more time for activities.

Across the road, roam a multitude of State Land mountain trails. Ride the mountains with Back Country Horsemen. Cross country ski in the field or on the Curlew rail-trail. Fish or float the river right from this property. Switch to a low stress, do-it-your-own-way country lifestyle in NE Washington state: no state income tax, very reasonable flat fee car registration, low electric rates, low cost of living.

Living in Ferry County is like stepping back in time: low population, low density, great neighbors, safe community, beautiful country surroundings, lots of elbow-room. Smaller school system gives attention to each family. Whether its hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing or just relaxing, this property has it all.
