Three-Story Home In Alaska
View all photos View map
We have a 2400+ sq ft tri-level home with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in a quiet subdivision in south Anchorage.
The living room has comfortable leather furniture, a fireplace and an entertainment centre with plasma cable TV, DVD player, and a Bose Wave Machine. There is also a laptop available for your use.
There is a ping pong table in the partially-finished basement.
The uppermost level contains all the bedrooms. Master and spare bedroom have queen-size beds; the third bedroom serves as an office and has a single bed. We also have a roll-away bed that can be used if you need further accommodation.
We have two attached decks (upper and lower) facing the backyard, which has numerous birch trees, a strawberry garden and a raspberry patch.
Our two-car heated garage has a 2005 Subaru Outback wagon and a 2002 Mazda pickup with bike rack, and two 21-speed mountain bikes available for use.
Our quiet subdivision is just minutes from everything Anchorage and the surrounding area has to offer.
The nearest grocery store (Safeway) is just half a mile away, and we're two miles from Anchorage's largest indoor shopping mall.
There are virtually hundreds of miles of biking and cross-country ski trails throughout Anchorage and in the Chugach Mountains, just east of town. And Alyeska Ski Resort is only 40 miles south.
Veterans can enjoy full use of the large Army - Air Force joint base only minutes away from us on the north side of town.
In addition to summer and early fall, winter can be an ideal time to visit Alaska. The days become shorter as winter approaches, but the long twilights bring out the alpenglow on the mountains. The northern lights can be awesome, and the cool, crisp air is invigorating.
Some of the best silver salmon fishing takes place in September and October, when the crowds (and the mosquitoes) are gone.
During the winter Anchorage becomes a "city of lights"
In February, the "Fur Rendezvous" is a week-long festival that ends the first weekend in March with the start of the Iditarod dogsled race to Nome.
In March Alyeska holds its Spring Carnival.
I, Jim, was a petroleum geophysicist and oil and gas leasing manager for the State of Alaska for 24 years, and have been retired since 2004.
Gail, my wife, has been a part-time yoga-fit instructor.
Since 2007 we have done sixteen home exchanges in the US and other countries.
We love outdoor activities, especially bicycling.
