              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: I grew up hearing stories about my great grandfather and his travels throughout Alaska as a young man searching for gold. I made up my mind at 6 years of age that I would go there some day. That day was 25 years ago! Our first home was on Kodiak Island where our children were born. In 2007 we decided to relocate to Anchorage for a change of pace and start a new chapter in our lives. There is so much to see and do! In 2012 we moved to Palmer , which lies just an hour north of Anchorage in The Matanuska Valley. My great Uncle, Fred Edlund, was a homesteader in Wasilla in 1915. His brother Anton Edlund ( my other great grandfather) followed a few years later in 1937.

              Why Palmer:
              The scenery is gorgeous, and its close enough to Anchorage so we can still keep up with our rental properties there.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              This house sits right in the middle of 8 peaceful acres but is actually less than a mile from downtown Palmer. The view of Pioneer Peak from the property is breathtaking! Moose and eagles are frequent visitors along with many beautiful songbirds
