Luxury homes come with all sorts of indulgent amenities – but it's a rarified few that come with their own private airpark. Set across five acres, this plush "fly-in" home in scenic North Idaho overlooks the majestic Coeur d'Alene Lake. "This private airpark 'hangar home' is a pilot's dream," says agent Greg Rowley. "It's the perfect North Idaho base camp, with direct access to a 2,750-foot grass strip and incredible sights to explore." The 5,600-square-foot hangar opens directly to the runway and is the ideal space for a true collector as there's plenty of room for multiple aircraft. The airstrip is oriented northeast and southwest, with a steep fall at the southwest lake end that ensures an unobstructed takeoff or landing.
Adjoining the hanger is a luxurious, 2,800-square-foot home, which comes fully furnished and ready to move in. The expansive floor plan features three bedrooms, each with an en suite, an open-plan living, kitchen, and dining area extending out to a covered patio via a fully retractable glass wall system. A built-in gym is located in a nearby detached barn, which also offers plenty of additional storage space. One incredibly unique feature of the home is a window that looks into the adjoining hangar, framing the aircraft within and transforming the scene into a framed work of art. Above the window, a vintage propeller has been hung as an aviation-themed objet d'art.
The outdoor living space is just as indulgent as the interior, with a built-in stainless steel kitchen, a large dining space, and a wood-burning fireplace beneath a dramatic vaulted timber ceiling – all with spectacular views over the surrounding meadows toward distant mountain ranges. Wind blinds and electric heaters mean the space is usable year-round, from breezy summer afternoons to cozy winter nights.
When it comes time to venture from home, the surrounding area also has plenty to offer. Discover secluded beaches and lakeside parks, go boating or paddling on the lake, or hike through evergreen forests in the 120-acre Tubbs Hill park. Keen golfers will love the area's scenic and challenging golf courses, including the luxurious Coeur d'Alene Resort, which boasts the world's only floating, moveable golf green. Those seeking something more adventurous can even go white water rafting on the nearby Spokane and Clark Fork River.
Or, explore closer to home – not only does the property have its own private airpark, but it also has secondary waterfront access to a private community beach and picnic area at scenic Carlin Bay. What more could you ask for?
