Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

Why the Owner Chose Turnagain, Anchorage, AK, USA:
Our home is located historic Turnagain neighborhood. Located a two minute walk from the coastal trail with views of Mt. Denali, Foraker, Susitna and Hunter. It is just three quarter mile to beautiful Westchester Lagoon which maintains duck, bird and fish habitat. It is an easy walk on the trail to downtown. Heading the other direction on the coastal trail, one might see moose in the woods and beautiful views and sandy beach at Pt. Woronzof.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Close to airport, bus, coastal trail, and downtown makes this setting convenient. With a private entrance and off street parking, it still has the homey feeling being an upstairs studio within a home. It has all the comforts and conveniences of home, i.e., internet, cable tv, and washer/dryer. There are beautiful Alaskana pictures on the wall with a growing library of Alaskan books and videos available. It is also a money saver because you can entertain yourself and cook at home!
