Girdwood house description

This spacious, executive-style house is located two blocks from the base of Mount Alyeska Ski Resort in the beautiful Girdwood Valley, a 35-minute drive along the ocean shores of Turnagain Arm south of Anchorage.

As one of the finest luxury rental homes in Girdwood, this all-redwood-sided house features a large, gourmet kitchen with Brazilian granite counters, a professional gas cook stove, an Indian slate floor, elegant stainless appliances, and a roomy kitchen island for seating and entertaining. Offering over 3,000 square feet of luxurious space, decorations include a variety of local art from Alaska's best known artists and multiple alaskan motif stain glass windows.

The main living area has hardwood floors, and features a large open circular fireplace with multiple couchs and chairs around it and a wall of windows with a gorgeous view of Mount Alyeska. There is also a game room area with a pool table, stereo, and a carpeted TV room with a large flat screen TV with cable, DVD/VCR surround sound system and several more comfy couches and chairs for relaxing at the end of a hard day. The main bathroom features a large, multi-person 80-gallon Jacuzzi tub set in travertine tile, perfect for melting your aches and pains away. Wireless internet is available for those travelers needing to stay in touch with the world.

There are four carpeted, roomy bedrooms upstairs and a bath to service three of the bedrooms in addition to the Master Bedroom bath (and a third full bathroom on the main level).
1. Master Suite: One king-sized bed, TV/DVD and a private bath with jetted jacuzzi tub.
2. Bedroom Two: Two queen beds and one twin bed, TV/VCR.
3. Bedroom Three: One queen bed, one twin bed and a full-sized baby crib.
4. Bedroom Four: Two double twin-sized bunk beds (total of four beds).

If you are looking for a comfortable house to base your South-central Alaska travels from in one of the finest communities in Alaska, Girdwood Valley is it. On the shores of Turnagain Arm, surrounding by seven glaciers, tall mountains, North America's northern most rain forest and located 35 minutes from Anchorage along one of America's most scenic coastal highways, Girdwood is to Alaska what Aspen is to Colorado.

Come relax in our little piece of heaven!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1996

                          About the owner: My wife and I were born in Anchorage and have lived and skied in the mountains around Girdwood and on Mt. Alyeska since our youth. After spending many years outside Alaska getting educated, we returned to our home state, fell in love and have been raising our family here ever since. I am a general aviation pilot and enjoy flying around Alaska and seeing the state. I run a real estate business and rental properties in Girdwood and Anchorage.

                          Why the Owner Chose Girdwood:
                          Mount Alyeska and the town of Girdwood is Anchorage's local ski resort, nestled in the heart of the Chugach Mountains just a short drive from Anchorage. Girdwood is a charming town that is filled with huge spruce trees, surrounded by mountains and glaciers and best of all, it snows a ton in the winter making the skiing some of the best around.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our home is just a few hundred yards from the base of Mt. Alyeska. Located on a well kept bike path that leads to the mountain, walking or biking from our home and accessing the rest of the Girdwood Valley is easy. Our luxurious home is very open and spacious, has a wall of windows facing the mountain, and a large open circular fireplace that will make you feel like you are in your own ski lodge.
