Our house is in the midtown area of Anchorage, within a few miles to everywhere. The first time we saw it, we fell in love with it by its convenient location close to the University of Alaska, hospital, well-known Anchorage Botanical Garden, and an easy access to local restaurants and shops. Two bus lines will take you to downtown and large shopping malls.
The property, renovated in recent years, has a contemporary and artistic feel. Two bedrooms face east and one faces south, each is bathed in a plenty of sunshine. Located at the back of the house is the Reflection Lake that offers a full view to the living room and the backyard deck. The summer sunset takes quite a few hours and one can enjoy the sunshine on the deck till 11 pm. Frequently you can see kayaks or canoes drifting and ducks splashing water for fun.
Inside the property, there are two floors. On the first floor, you see the sitting room with a large window overlooking the lake, the eating area, the kitchen, a powder room (a half bath), and a French door to the deck. You can choose to have your breakfast either on the deck under the pavilion or at the eating area inside while enjoying the lake view. On the second floor, we have three bedrooms (the Peony Room, the Bamboo Room, and the Calligraphy Room). Spacious and airy, the Peony Room has a king-size bed and an on-suit full bath. A new king bed set was purchased in 2017 for this room. The Bamboo Room is smaller with a queen-size bed; the Calligraphy Room has a queen-size futon, opposite which is the second full bathroom in the hallway. All rooms are very clean, eye-appealing, and comfortable to stay. There is a TV in the Peony Room and the Bamboo Room respectively, and a desk computer in the Calligraphy Room. We also have a loft on the second floor, a place to relax, watch TV, and hang out in the evening. It can easily host one person or two to sleep; a new mattress is provided there. Children particularly love the place. Opposite the loft area is the laundry room where you can use the washer and dryer. Feel free to use the facilities; detergent, ironing facilities are provided for your convenience.
Seeing is believing; you're welcome to stay at our property and you will surely enjoy your morning and evening at the house when you return from the daily exciting trips in Anchorage or close-by areas.
