Coeur d'Alene house description

The 1930’s meet present day in the meticulously remodeled home located three blocks from downtown Coeur d'Alene. Enjoy the benefits of a one-year complete interior and exterior renovation.

Located on a quiet, tree lined residential street you are only minutes from the activities of downtown and Lake Coeur d'Alene. In ten minutes you can take a quiet nature walk along Tubbs Hill which overlooks the lake.

You are only 5 blocks from fine dining, browsing antiques or sipping coffee at the local coffee shops. If golfing is in your plans the renowned CDA Golf Course is a few minutes drive away. St. Thomas Catholic Church is just a two block stroll. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood away from busy traffic.

The interior is elegantly appointed with fine European antique furniture. The original hardwood floors have been refinished to reveal the original craftsmanship of the 30's. Fire up the gas fireplace with a push of the remote and enjoy HDTV on the plasma located above the mantel.

Sleeping for up to six persons is available. The master bedroom has a king bed, the guest bedroom has two extra long twin beds. The main floor has a pull-out sofa that is located in front of the fire place and the lower level is a trundle bed. There are full baths upstairs and in the basement. All beds are top-of-the-line Serta for that perfect night sleep. Luxury linen and bath towels are also provided.

The kitchen is equipped with the latest state of the art appliances and is fully equipped to meet your every culinary need.

The character of this home has been maintained with a touch of modern technology. Full audio control is located in each room via keypads to select your choice of Satellite XM radio, HDTV, or bring your Ipod to listen to your own music. A HD plasma in the living room is revealed behind art with a push of a remote control. Another HD plasma is in the master bedroom.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Hi! from Phil and Jan. Flying is our passion and Idaho is perfect for back country flying adventures. We enjoy biking, kayaking, hiking, fishing and everything Idaho has to offer. We especially enjoy the friendly people of Coeur d' Alene.

                      Why the Owner Chose Coeur d'Alene:
                      Our cottage on 8th Street is really special. We spent 14 months remodeling the home both inside and out. Previous owners dating back decades would drop by and introduce themselves and tell of great stories of raising their children in this home. They very much appreciated the improvements that we made. Of course the location is perfect. The home is on a quiet street but only 3 blocks from Sherman Avenue where all the stores, coffee shops, and restaurants are located.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      From our cottage our guests love to take leisurely walks into town. No need for a car. Tubbs Hill nature walk is a really popular activity. Our home is fully fenced in and you have privacy in the back yard while cooking on our grill. Everyone really enjoys the home audio system. Mom can soak in the claw foot tub listening to Mozart while Dad is in the kitchen listening to 80’s rock while cooking for the family.
