Property description

PRIVACY! This home is located on almost 6 acres of land. It has all the privacy, peace and wild beauty that you expect to experience on an Alaskan vacation. The property is conveniently located in the city limits of Homer and is only 3 to 4 miles from the city center. The house is located on a bluff that overlooks emerald lakes and the beaches of Kachemak Bay just below.

You can hear the murmur of the ocean from the porch and watch eagles soaring on the updrafts overhead. Before you stretches the waters of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet, the mountains of the Kenai range and the volcanoes of the Alaska Range.

This well kept house has a wall of windows to take full advantage of the view and thoughtfully placed window treatments to shut out the midnight sun for those not used to long daylight hours at bedtime. There is an access ramp to the house and the entire lower floor is handicapped accessible. Spend the afternoon on the large deck and grill your fish for a fresh Alaskan dinner. This house is a comfortable residence stocked with all of the conveniences of home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are both long time Alaskans who discovered all the amazing things about Homer and have made it our home. We love to fish, hike, bird-watch and kayak. Living in Homer has made these activities available right out our door. We share our local knowledge with our visitors and especially love to share our Alaska.

Why the Owner Chose Homer, AK, USA:
Some of the best things about this property is the privacy and the view. The most frequent comment I get from our guests is how greatly their expectations of the cottage were exceeded when they walk through the door.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My favorite feature of the house is watching the antics of the eagles and the acrobatic ravens playing stick-drop and aero-bomber with each other on breezy days. The long bayside porch is a perfect place to relax with a morning cup of coffee or s peaceful afternoon after a day's activities.
