Property description

A spacious three floor custom log home with radiant floor heat through out. Decorated with local art and artifacts collected through out the state of Alaska. On the top floor, enjoy a large master suite with a king size bed, extra-large Jacuzzi tub and steam/hydro jet massage shower. Enjoy spectacular views of the Alaska Range from up here or watching the northern lights from bed during the winter months or just closing the blackout blinds to get some sleep during the times of the midnight sun. For the working vacationer, take advantage of the third floor office space fully equipped with a spacious cherry wood desk, high-speed internet and printer access. Occasionally glancing up from your work to take in the wilderness, wildlife and solitude around you.
The bottom floor offers two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the second has two twin beds, both share a full size bathroom with its own Jacuzzi tub/shower. These two rooms walk out to a full size family room complete with a home theater system and from here you can walk out to a wraparound covered patio that's connected to a well-manicured lawn that you can go bare foot. The laundry room is also located on this floor.
The main floor offers an open floor plan that includes a gourmet kitchen fully-equipped with new appliances, a spacious coffee / wine bar and a dining area for up to 8. The kitchen is equipped with everything you may need to prepare a hardy breakfast or gourmet meals to a Thanksgiving style sit down dinner. Large walk in pantry with full size refrigerator and full size freezer/ice maker. This living area has a spacious sectional and two cozy chairs for seating of 6 comfortably around a soap stone wood stove on cool days or nights. A separate seating area for two is also located on this floor for reading or getting away to watch a game or favorite show on a 26" TV that also swivels for viewing while in the kitchen preparing a favorite meal. A spacious coffee/wine bar with separate sink, beverage refrigerator and a 1/2 bath is also on this floor.
While on this floor, you can walk out the front door to a covered 250 sqft deck that is perfect to relax in one of the rocking chairs on a rainy day and take in the smells of the local gardens. Or maybe sit and drink a cup of coffee as the sun has been shinning for hours on this side of the house this morning and stop to listen to the sounds of the mountains waking up.
The other 500sqft of deck is accessible off this floor from the back and side doors. You can BBQ on the gas grill, eat meals and/or lounge outside on the deck furniture while taking in the views of the Alaska Range, Cook inlet or just the wildlife wandering through the property from this open deck. 200sqft of this deck is also covered.
Our property is private and tucked away, not located on a through street. Skiing, hiking, fishing, rock climbing and biking are all within a 20 minute drive or less. Close enough to downtown Anchorage to enjoy fine dining and shows and still appreciate the solitude and scenery of the Chugach Mts.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We absolutely love Alaska! I was born in NW Alaska in the village of Kotzebue, am an Inupiaq and have lived my entire life here. My husband came to Alaska in the early 80's with USAF and instantly fell in love with Alaska (and with me). He has called it home for over 30 years. There is so much to see and do and it's perfect for those that love the outdoors. We built our garage/apt and moved in during the fall of 1998. We finished drying in the main house that year and spent the rest of that winter and spring finishing the inside of our dream home. We moved in May of 1999.

Why the Owner Chose Rabbit Creek, Anchorage, AK, USA:
I've always wanted a log home and it did not take much to persuade my husband that this was our dream property to build our dream home. The 2 acre property is private, with a large manicured back yard, two rock flower gardens with a sitting area with a chimneya. A separate, larger fire pit for the winter months and plenty of natural landscape to enjoy the wildlife that passes through the property. Enjoy grilling on the back deck and take in the spectacular views and sounds of the Chugach Mts.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy exceptional views of Cook Inlet, The Alaska Range and Chugach Mountains from three decks surrounding the house, as well as great opportunities to encounter wildlife such as moose, brown and black bear, lynx and on rare occasions wolfs. This is also a great central location for any activity you choose. Just 20 minutes to fishing, skiing or rock climbing and a very short scenic drive south where you can see beluga whales and Dall Sheep on occasion. Great trails nearby for walking, hiking or biking as well as cross country skiing in the winter. Cook a meal in a kitchen equipped for all your culinary needs or soak in one of the two Jacuzzi tubs (single & double) or maybe just take a steam or a hydro massage. An indoor soap stone wood stove guaranteed to take the chill out of any Alaskan night or just relax in the garden with a fire going, a glass of wine and take in the views and sounds of the wild.
