This ''Big Tree Lovers Paradise'' offers a piece of beautifully wild North Idaho forest. The mature forest and parklike yard has dozens of large, tall Ponderosa pine and Douglas Fir up to 36'' in diameter and includes six mature apple trees and a large delicious yellow plum tree. This is old Idaho at its best and rare in this day of logged-off real estate. In addition to the park-like yard, the 7.78 acres sports a picnic fire pit, thick forest, and established hiking, biking, or quad trails with turkey, deer, and occasional moose and elk. The land to the west is undeveloped, which lends a wilder experience to life here. There are no CCR's! ... AND ... This marvelous location is only two minutes from Athol's Super One grocery store and business complex with Ace Hardware, AutoZone parts store, gas station, PlCU credit union, and the new Sweet Lou's restaurant being built. An Urgent Care facility is planned for the near future.C&L Repair, North Idaho's best auto mechanics, are just 1 minute further down the road from Super One. It just does not get any more convenient than this!
The cozy 2BR, 1BA home has been updated with newer interior kitchen and bath cabinets, doors, trim, lighting, paint, ceiling insulation, and vinyl windows. The 30x50 garage/shop needs new metal and garage doors but is open and spacious with a solid concrete floor. An old 4-bay lean-to building for boat and toy storage is included. An existing concrete 22x30 slab would be perfect for a new tall RV shed. Service includes high-speed Spectrum cable TV/internet. Natural gas is available for new construction at Riley Loop nearby in the MVFP subdivision and the water is MVFP community water with north Idaho's greatest tasting water. MVFP is currently adding backup generators and an updated control system, so the house will not be out of water service even in the event of power loss.
Last, but not least, this property has 8-minute access to Lake Pend Oreille at Bayview or Farragut State Park. Lake Pend Oreille is North Idaho's "A+ rated gem lake" for swimming, gravel beaches, boating, and fishing for large trout, bass, and kokanee. There are also over a dozen other lakes within 5-20 minutes including Granite, Kelso, Spirit, Round, and Cocola Ila Lakes. Just barely across highway 54 are bicycle and quad trails leading to Farragut Park or the Super One business complex. This is LOCATION, LOCATION, with acreage, mature forest, and recreational access! It is ideal for those who must have modern amenities very close.
The existing older home served the current owners well for over 16 years, but a buyer could add on or live in it comfortably while building a new house. Bring your recreational aspirations, and love of RARE, BIG trees, and enjoy North Idaho at its best.
