Welcome to an architecturally stunning Sandpoint, Idaho, lifestyle! From the moment you arrive at the 40 foot porte cochere of this Sandpoint residence, the colonnade design of quarter sawn fir beams welcomes you into this unique North Idaho timber-framed home with impressive Sandpoint and Lake Pend Oreille views. Cedar cathedral ceilings offset the beautiful fir beams accented with stone from a local quarry, which gives you the immediate realization that you are somewhere very special.
This 7000 square foot home draws you in from floor to ceiling, when you step onto the Smoked White Oak engineered wood floors from France (manufactured by Carlton Wood Flooring in Compton California). They are elegant but rugged by design, so leave your shoes on.
(Photo 1) The entry is spacious and inviting with hand blown glass lighting fixtures and specially made bench seating, which is a work of art in itself. The glasswork and wrought iron chandelier from Hubberdston Forge, provides a very special touch of class. Hang your wet coats in this extra-large coat storage closet, with a Panasonic anti-humidity fan.
(Photo 2) The guest powder room is exceptionally designed with real 1/8” slate on the walls, which provides character without having a heavy feeling. The Balinese river rock and mirror create a unique backdrop to the lagos blue limestone specialty sink, which sits on a honed granite counter top. A rice panel paper window from Lumicor allows additional natural light and provides a softening effect.
Entering into the main living room your eyes will immediately be drawn to the large windows, which allow for a panoramic view of Lake Pend Oreille and the City of Sandpoint. Relax in the large seating area beside the beautiful hearth and gas assisted wood fireplace. No need to carry the wood through the home, as the fireplace wood storage bin is loaded from a covered deck outside.
(Photo 3) Host a game night and offer your family and friends a beverage of their choice at the wet bar located off the living room, which offers clear ice by Sub-Zero. No detail was spared when they placed copper panels on the bar with the wrought iron boot rail custom made by Mountain Metal Works.
(Photo 4) No expense was spared, even in the mud room. With its own entrance off the deck, this room includes a sitting bench, additional storage and a separate pet shower all on the highest rated PEI porcelain flooring to allow for less slip with wet feet. (Washer and dryer by Miele and a fireclay apron Farmhouse Sink by Shawls Originals).

The genuine leather tiled walls with cork backing keep the noise down, when heading downstairs. Separate lighting controls and hand stressed railings assist you on these beautiful wood stairs.
