You’ll get your exercise walking up the many steps to this vintage home in Ketchikan, Alaska.
Those gorgeous views make the climb totally worth it!
This craftsman home, perched high on a hill over the town, was built in 1920.
It has 5 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms in over 3,000 square feet.
It is currently listed for sale for $459,000
Unfortunately for us old house lovers, most of the original character of this craftsman home was remodeled out over the years. But….. the views!
The living room, dining room, and kitchen are situated on the second floor along with one bedroom and a full bath.
The light pouring in through those picture windows is spectacular!
On the upper level, there are two bedrooms and another bathroom.
One original feature that survived: beautiful hardwood flooring throughout.
Imagine waking up to that vista each day!
The bathrooms also have large windows but they face the forested part of the lot for privacy.
The bottom floor has two rental units, a utility room, an entry/mudroom, plus a sauna.
Even the lowest level of the house gets great natural light.
Although the lot is steep, there is a garden area and a hot tub nestled up against the lush trees.
In fact, the home backs to a greenbelt so it has views from one side and privacy on the other.
Still, the panoramic views of downtown Ketchikan, Tongass Narrows, and the mountain range beyond, are the star of the show.
The listing write-up proclaims:
Live like royalty on top of Ketchikan
