Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: David was born and raised in Alaska, the most awesome state in existence! He's lived in Anchorage, Palmer, Wrangell, Petersburg, Valdez, and Juneau (and some of them more than once!). David was a tour guide at Princess Tours for several summers, and has experienced many of the wonderful adventures Juneau has to offer. He is also a proud father of two, and loves his amazing wife and family dearly.

Why the Owner Chose Mendenhall Valley, Juneau, AK, USA:
David lived in this house for years. In 2016, his parents put it up for sale. Wanting to keep the property in the family, David and Karrie pooled all their resources together to purchase the home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Right next to a river? Heck yes! Nice woody feel? Oh yeah! A few miles from the glacier? You bet! Room for the whole family and more? You know it! And living in this house for years is an added bonus.
