Looking to escape the bustle of the city? If so, this retreat-style log home on 160 acres is for you. Located atop the Eagan Lake Valley the property and home offer extensive views of Eagan Lake and the surrounding wilderness for miles and miles. The property is very quiet and feels remote, but you are a relatively short commute to Bridge Lake and 100 Mile House.
The property itself has both flat portions and undulations. It is a combination of aspen, pine and open pasture. This makes it perfect for cattle, horses and wildlife (mule deer and moose are found in abundance). The main yard is well-manicured with a large lawn, landscaping, a koi pond and a fenced kennel system for a dog breeder. The fencing is in good shape and only requires minor repairs to fix damage from downed trees. There are several outbuildings (all require a little work). There is an older home with power to it, a small barn/equipment shed and a small cabin.
The house itself was built in 1992 and is very large and prominent at 3,000 ft2 (basement unfinished). Each level of the home has its own outdoor living space and offers views of the surrounding countryside. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The living/dining/kitchen are open concept with a stone chimney flu serving as a vibrant center piece. The woodwork in the home is very elegant with large beams and crisp corners.
There is a large entry way into the home where muddy clothes can be removed prior to entering the home. There is a laundry room with sink and toilet off the entrance as well. The south facing views and large open windows make the home extremely bright and warm. The sun’s warm rays are caught throughout the entirety of the day. The main floor is completed by a wraparound deck, which is partially enclosed, so that you can enjoy the outdoors in various weather conditions.
The master bedroom upstairs is enormous and exits out onto a top floor balcony. From the upstairs you can see clear across the valley. Each of the upstairs bedrooms has its own closet space and the upstairs bathroom is spacious with two sink basins.
Ultimately, this is the perfect getaway property for someone seeking to leave the craziness of the city behind and get back to nature in style.
