Alaskan Off the Grid living near the creature comforts you want! This home is truly the best of both worlds! Located on the more desirable East Channel of Pennock Island in Bald Headed Cove, the home sits on a 3.21 acre lot of mostly level land and boasts 409 feet of water frontage. Enjoy the water views that this 3000 sq. ft. home has to offer, two minutes from the newly renovated Saxman Seaport harbor. The dock for the home has been recently upgraded to 16” steel pilings, making it comparable to a commercial dock. Built from lumber milled on site, as well as some historic refurbished materials this three bedroom, two bath home has too many amazing custom features to list. The sub siding and siding have all been milled on site. The walls are 12 thick including the siding and are very well insulated. Countertops in the kitchen are reconditioned alleys from Ketchikans' own bowling alley and the outside decking has all been salvaged from the old wood stave water main used around town. Even the glass blocks highlighting the door to the master bedroom have been salvaged from a local building remodel. This home brings off-grid living at its finest with all the comforts of on-the-grid lifestyle due to specialized amenities for self-sufficiency that include solar power with battery storage, inverter, and two wiring systems throughout (12-volt for low energy use and 12 Kw diesel generator for 110-volt). There are two 3000 gallon water tanks to ensure there is always plenty of water and it only takes minimal rain on the large roof to fill them back up again. The finished attic space has plenty of room for play, crafts, reading – whatever might strike one’s fancy! The home features custom and unique wood work throughout; the wood was sourced locally and milled on-site. Multiple outbuildings are located on the property, most notably a woodworker’s dream workshop and a large area for working on equipment out of the rain! The home is heated by a Fisher wood stove as well a Kuma oil stove to provide supplemental heat for cold winter days. All appliances are propane, with the exception of the washer and dryer. A pipe system feeds hot water from the wood stove into the propane hot water tank to lower propane usage during the winter when the wood stove is burning all the time. All of these features make this home completely self-sufficient and not dependent on a public utility. Besides the butcher block counter tops, the kitchen features a bay window where you can eat your meals and enjoy the ever-active waterfront. The master bedroom with its panoramic views is a must-see! An abundance of eagles frequent the cove, as well as heron, kingfisher, and deer. Whales, sea lions, sea otters and mink have all been seen from the living room window! Halibut and salmon fishing are just a quick boat ride away. The possibilities are endless with this lovely retreat. This incredible home with walkable waterfront makes this property a must see. Open, light and bright best describe this wonderful home. There are wild blueberry and huckleberry bushes steps from the house, an attached greenhouse as well as an outside gardening area, and rocked road access to the rear of the house extending from the beach. Enjoy the quiet solitude of life on an island. Live the adventure of off-the-grid living (and save yourself a bunch of money by not paying a monthly utility bill!). Some tools will be left but many others to make this a turn-key, off grid situation, are available for purchase. Add these items to your new home to make remote, off grid living easy!
