Eagle River house description

This property is nestled in the Eagle River Valley with stunning views of the Chugach Mountains. Look at the mountains as you enjoy your morning coffee from the kitchen table, or step out onto the spacious deck to enjoy the sounds of the birds or watch the wildlife. A fire pit off the front patio opens to a large yard for kids to play. Three bedrooms (plus a futon downstairs) and two baths make it perfect for families looking to enjoy the wonders that an Alaskan summer has to offer. A short 6 mile drive down the mountain takes you to Eagle River where you can find groceries, dining, and shopping, or you can continue about 10 miles down the Glenn highway to find yourself in the middle of beautiful downtown Anchorage. This property is ideal if you are in Alaska to visit family or friends.

              Car: Necessary

              Eagle River is located a short drive from downtown Anchorage, and provides a scenic and quiet mountain environment to enjoy. Property is nestled in a quiet mountain neighborhood near the Chugach State Park, within walking distance of local trails. Just up the road is the South Fork Valley Trailhead, leading into the Chugach State Park, Eagle and Symphony Lakes, Hanging Valley, and other mountaineering terrain. Other trails in the area include the Historic Iditarod (Crow Pass) Trail, North Fork River Trail, Mount Baldy, Eklutna Lake, Thunderbird Falls, and many others (see Alaska DNR webpage for more information!). Groceries, restaurants, and other necessities are only a short drive down the mountain in Eagle River, or you can continue into downtown Anchorage to enjoy all that the city has to offer.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: Our family grew up in this home, enjoying a life in the woods while still being close to town. We moved to Alaska about 15 years ago, and found that Eagle River was a nice place to settle and raise our young children.

              Why the Owner Chose Eagle River:
              We love to enjoy the outdoors, whether that be skiing, hiking, or just going for quiet walks in the woods. This place offers the chance to enjoy all of this while still being close to home. This property makes us feel like the backcountry is right out the back door, but still close to employment, school, and city amenities.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This house is perfect as a base to launch day-long hiking trips, whether you want to explore in the Eagle River Valley or venture out to the various trails in the Anchorage bowl. However, the views from the front deck, the patio, or just out the windows are enough to make you want to stay 'at home' and relax.
