Welcome to Eagle’s View in Ponder Point.
This luxury 6 bedroom home is where families and friends come to cherish each other and celebrate lake living. If your group is large, you need a nice, luxury home where you can enjoy together time, but also have room to play, eat and rest well. Eagle’s View is that perfect place for family reunions, summer ‘on the lake’ vacations, Schweitzer skiing, or ‘girl’s getaway’ group. Sleeps up to 20 in beds!
Located just 3 miles from downtown Sandpoint — this home is peacefully situated on nearly 2 acres. Apple and cherry trees rim the flat front yard of this quiet neighborhood. The lake-side grounds are mature, private and enormous — with a gentle, green grass slope and/or stairs from the deck, unfolding 100’ of private “play-oriented” waterfront. Tastefully enclosed fencing keeps kids safely in, but does not impede the spectacular views of massive Lake Pend Oreille.
Stepping inside, you’ll enjoy 6,100 sq. ft., of thoughtfully designed rooms and furnishings. The entry leads to a large, nearly pentagonal-shaped Great Room with soaring, cedar-lined ceilings. Plentiful windows perfectly frame panoramic views of Pend Oreille Bay, Gold Mountain and Sandpoint. Aptly named, at Eagle’s View you’ll delight in the many Bald & Golden Eagles who perch in the pine trees outside or soar gracefully by.
The large and functional kitchen has plenty of space for conversation, food prep and cooking. Enjoy dinner around the classic American-styled, rectangular table — or better yet eat outside on the huge deck. Outside heaters can be turned on to ward off an early or late season chill.
Host a family “Scrabble” tournament, game or movie night in the high tech Theatre room. Push a button and a screen quietly descends from the ceiling, with window blinds automatically darkening the room. 3 couches, plus a game table make this the perfect play room for adults and children alike. Satellite TV and a variety of family games, plus Blu-ray player all included. The Theatre room also doubles as a 6th bedroom — as 2 of the couches are Queen sleepers. A full bathroom makes this a great overflow, teen or family suite bedroom.
Across the hallway, a custom lake-view office provides desks for two, and is that quiet area when work or a conference call beckons. High speed, secure Wi-Fi provided.
The master bedroom is ideal on the main level. The King bed is situated to welcome a sunrise and has ‘his’ and ‘her’ dressing closets, large double shower with rainfall shower head, plus jacuzzi tub. An additional twin bed resides in one of the large dressing closets for keeping a young child close by if need be.
Downstairs you’ll find 4 additional private bedrooms — with a variety of king, queen and twin bed configurations that accommodate another 11 people in beds! Each bedroom has a FULL bathroom.
Step outside to the lower deck, where the hot tub is recessed into the decking. No longer will you have to plod barefoot in cold or messy weather.
Luxury linens are provided for all beds and baths, with TVs in every bedroom and laundry facilities on each floor.
From May through October, you’ll spend most of the day outside enjoying the lake and surrounding mountains. Two enormous decks facilitate this with separate sitting areas that you’ll enjoy for meals, reading, wine and appetizers, sunsets, bird watching, sun soaking and the joyful exuberance of kids creatively frolicking outside all day. 4th of July is special here as Sandpoint’s City Beach hosts a fantastic fireworks display.
The water is clear and warm in summer and a private dock has 2 jet ski lifts. (There is *not* a boat lift at this time) Fish for rainbow trout right off the dock or enjoy your favorite water sport in the beauty of Lake Pend Oreille Bay. Boat to dinner or explore the amazing beauty of this incredible 43 mile long lake.
