Property description

A Truly Extraordinary, Unique and Private gated 2 story home on 4 flat acres fronting the Pend O Reille River. It should be noted that this property is FOR SALE and we cannot take any reservations for the summer of 2015 until Spring, 2015. Tenants would have to agree to allow realtors to show the property while they were renting.
The property has a very large clean sandy beach and lawn area with boat dock large enough to accommodate 3-4 boats. Over 200 feet of grassy water frontage. Gentle walk-in sand beach..great for kids, swimming or just floating on your raft. Beach has several umbrellas, lounge chairs, tables, a BBQ and large grassy play area . Property is recently remodeled and tastefully furnished with large outdoor decks plus hot tub facing the river and the mountains.

New modern fully stocked kitchen, granite countertops, glassed in dining room with views of forest and river. Cozy living room with stone fireplace. House is extremely private and peaceful. VIEWS FROM EVERY WINDOW! Two large upstairs Master Bedrooms. First Master bedroom is mostly glass with deck and 180 views of river and mountains. 2nd Master Bedroom suite has sitting area, entry deck, kitchenette and marble tile bathroom. Three large comfortable bedrooms with 3 queen beds. In addition, a queen size inflatable is available. Direct TV/satellite plus DVD in 2 master bedrooms plus downstairs den. A VERY PRIVATE AND SPECIAL PLACE FOR YOUR SUMMER VACATION. There are no other houses around except across the river.

We are also happy to say that the Willow Bay Marina and Restaurant which are located next door are open during the summer months. Gas for your boat plus launching available right next door PLUS an outstanding outdoor restaurant and bar for those nights when you dont want to cook.

In summer ONE WEEK MINIMUM RENTAL. No weddings, parties or events allowed. No RV's or Trailers on any part of the property without express permission of owner. Boat Trailers OK. No camping or RV's on the beach allowed. No smoking in the house.
This is one of those expansive properties that is a 'must experience it to truly appreciate it.' The pictures cannot do it justice.

  • The truly unique feature of this property is the privacy. There are no houses nearby and you can close the gate if you want total privacy. It is very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful views and a great walk in beach. It is also situationed adjacent to the Willow Bay Marina and this year the Marina and restaurant will re-open in June and you can use their excellent facilities to put your boat in and out plus get gas. In past years the restaurant was one of the best places to eat on the River. Will be under new management this year so we are keeping our fingers crossed that it may even surpass the excellent food of the past....moreless

The Marina has gas for your boat plus a ramp for launching and taking your boat out of the river.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am an adventurous, easy going and spirited woman who has been retired since 2002. I now spend half my time in California near my kids and grandchildren. I enjoy traveling, staying active, having new experiences and meeting new people. I love the outdoors and being on or in the water as much as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Sandpoint:
Sandpoint is one of the most beautiful and friendly communities in this country. The weather in the spring, summer and fall is extraordinary. The river and lake make it a perfect place for a home or a vacation. I bought this property in 2002 and lived on this property full time until 2007. I now spend winters in California with my family, and have decided to do some traveling during the high season summer months. My partner and I do reside in the house several months each year in the Spring and Fall.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views are fantastic .. this property is unique in that it is very private and quiet. The beach is wonderful.. very swimmable all summer - easy walk in with no drop offs - so quite safe for children. The house and grounds are beautiful..A 45 acre forest on one side of the property. Lots of birdlife everywhere. The stars at night are beyond spectacular. I spent several years remodelling and landscaping to fit this unique and special piece of land. Am very pleased with how beautifully it turned out. The other bonus is that we live right next door to a marina which also has an excellent outdoor restaurant and bar open in the summers only. If you have a boat the marina has gas and a place to put your boat in and out easily.
