About the Property
4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with view of Kachemak Bay including the Homer Spit
A huge fire pit graces the side yard, perfect for a cozy bonfire around which to share drinks and memories during your time at Playful Ravens.
We call the home Playful Ravens because the air currents surrounding the bluff that this home sits on create the perfect spot for birds to soar and to play on the breezes. We regularly see Eagles, Ravens, and Hawks swirling on the updrafts.
The Master Suite has an incredibly comfortable king sized bed, a large bathroom and glass block/tiled shower area with two shower heads, a north-facing balcony large enough for sitting, plus a lovely, lofted reclining area with a love seat and chair with matching ottoman facing the remarkable views of Homer, the Homer Spit with a flat screen TV if you ever tire of the view. The TV has a Roku box that streams Netflix and Amazon Prime Movies for free. There is also a Water Rower rowing machine if you need to catch a quick and effective workout during your stay.
On the main floor with the Dining Room, Living Room, and Kitchen there is a bedroom with a full sized bed with a log frame and a full bath with a tub/shower. The lower level has two bedrooms with queen sized beds, the movie room - a large room with two love-seats and a wall of bookshelves, and the laundry. The lower-level bathroom has a toilet, a urinal, a sink and a shower. Our home has in floor heating and a Blaze King wood stove.
The spacious deck has a large table and benches for lunches and dinners immersed in the view, four adirondack chairs, and a hot tub. There is also a grill located on the deck off the kitchen.
Summer visitors regularly see bear, moose, sandhill cranes, and eagles at our home.
There are lovely hiking trails only minutes away.

Homer is a nature lover's nirvana where common sights can include moose grazing, a black bear crossing the road or porpoises playing in the surf. The charming seaside city, overlooking Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains, can be the starting point for a multitude of exciting adventures, including glacier skiing and viewing and guided kayak tours. Naturally splendid Kachemak State Park offers even more outdoor fun, with miles of excellent backcountry hiking trails. Explore nearby Halibut Cove, a unique fishing and artists' enclave where the roads are made of water. Or head to downtown Homer to sample delicious seafood, art galleries, museums and shops that sell locally made crafts. A trip to Homer would not be complete without casting a rod for salmon or halibut, the area's major catches. Head to the Homer Spit and try your luck from the shore or join a chartered fishing boat excursion. No matter which activities you choose, time spent in Homer is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are an Alaskan Commercial Fishing family. We spend our summers on Chisik Island fishing for Salmon which leaves our lovely home open to share with visitors like you! During the winter Jon is a teacher at a local public school, Fireweed Academy. Paula volunteers and does fund raising for a local school and organizations. She is studying Piano. We are truly honored to share our special piece of Homer Alaska with you.
Why the Owner Chose Homer, AK, USA:
For eight years we drove past this home on our way home. We lived 'off the grid' on 10 acres with many animals in a beautiful timber frame home, hauling our water. When we returned home from fishing, this home that we had passed so many times was up for sale. After taking a tour, we were hooked! Spectacular views, so much space for our growing family, and closer to town so our kids could enjoy more of the opportunities Homer offers. It has been a terrific move for us. This property and home have drawn our eyes for years. Once this home graced the cover of Alaska magazine, thanks to a beautiful picture by Scott Dickerson. This is an incredibly well-built and lovely home. The yellow cedar logs that create the home were harvested in British Columbia and hauled up the Alcan Highway. The interior walls are so warm and inviting as well as a little challenging to hang art on :-) The entire front wall of the home is eight windows and a sliding glass door - the view here is truly part of the home. We never tire of gazing at the mountains and glaciers across Kachemak Bay. Watching the Homer Spit, Homer, and the Homer Airport as the sunsets finishes and the many lights come on. Soaking in the 104 degree hot tub gazing at Northern Lights is one of our favorite pastimes and there are plenty of stars and satellites to watch for if it is not Northern Lights Season.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Playful Ravens will allow you to feel completely comfortable and at ease while you are on your trip. Comfy furniture, cozy beds, and the spectacular deck to watch the sunset from (one of our favorite past times). The entire glorious package is just minutes away from downtown Homer. Ten to be exact, and those ten minutes of driving are beautiful! We see Moose, Porcupine, Eagles, Ravens, Hawks, Owls, and Lynx on our way to town. And that is just the Wildlife... the expansive views driving down the hill are delightful. The deck, fire pit, and hot tub are very special parts of this home... great places to make memories with family and friends!
