About the owner: David is a retired juvenile justice officer and a self-employed business owner. He has lived in Alaska since graduating from high school in 1976. Jane is a fisheries biologist with the federal government. She moved to Alaska in 1994 after visiting on vacation. Jane also sells Alaska art - primarily Fred Machetanz; most of her framed pieces fro sale are hanging in the house - she has more unframed for sale. Just ask!
Why the Owner Chose Soldotna: Jane owned a Kenai river view cabin in Funny River since 1996, which she recently sold. David and Jane upgraded to this beautiful home ON the Kenai River in Winter 2009.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Moose in the yard, eagles overhead, ducks and gulls swooping in on small fish. The fishing for king salmon, red salmon, silver salmon, and rainbow trout is FANTASTIC! The house is at the end of a road with only a half dozen houses - very quiet. You can hear the river flow from the sunny deck.
