Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I am a retired banker and my husband is a retired teacher and coach. We originally came from Michigan and have lived in the Seward area since 1977. This property is still our home, but since our children moved out, it's big enough to share with you.

Why the Owner Chose Jesse Lee Heights (Seward, AK, USA):
We designed and built this home to move in from the mile 7 area of Seward to be closer to the school and to town, as well as to take advantage of a little less snow and and the extended garden season.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When we were laying out our house plan for this lot, we ended up with so many windows because there simply isn't a way to look that doesn't have a fantastic view. It's so convenient to be close to stores and down town. The North Wing has the best views of the ocean and Mt. Alice, but also has a view of Mt. Marathon and Iron Mountain from the West side. We also have easy access to hiking on the cross country running trails at Seward High School, as well as a short hike to a waterfall.
