Location:

Situated on a section of the pristine Clark Fork River, this property is a picturesque one of kind North Idaho paradise. Only 2 miles downstream from Clark Fork and 3 miles from the mouth of Lake Pend Oreille, and 2 miles east of the Idaho-Montana border. The Coeur d’Alene National Forest lies to the south of the Clark Fork River, and the property has views of Scotchman Peak to the north.

Acreage/Topography:

The 121.74± deeded acres lies along the north bank of the Clark Fork River. The land is benched and nearly completely useable, with a mix of mature timber and natural meadows along with managed pastureland. While no timber cruise has been performed recently, the land was last logged in 1998. There are also mature producing walnut and apple trees, and patches of raspberries and strawberries. Several trails in various levels of establishment traverse the land. The home is perched on the highest point of the property, surrounded by lawn and garden with gorgeous forested mountain views. The land circling the lawn has been cleared for protection against wildfires. Castle Rock is directly across the river, and is protected from development, preserving your unadulterated river and forest views. On the east end of the property’s river frontage is a natural eddy which could potentially make an ideal location for a dock or boat ramp.

Zoning:

According to the Bonner County Planning Department, the property is zoned rural, one dwelling per ten acres, allowing the potential for residential development.

Structures:

The 3-bedroom, 1 ½-bath home was built in 1974, and has a single main floor along with a finished basement, which hosts a fourth bedroom and a dedicated wood storage room. The home has electric heat with a wood stove as a backup, and a fire-resistant metal roof. Large outdoor decks jut off the front and back of the house, providing a perfect vantage point to observe the neighborhood wildlife. Very private and quiet, the home is set back from the highway and hidden from view. A private circular gravel driveway provides easy access to the home, as well as the attached oversize two vehicle car port and detached garage storage. There is also a rustic, dry cabin on the ranch, which may be ideal for a private hunting retreat. It is heated by a wood stove. There are several other outbuildings on the property as well, including a shop, barn, and chicken house.

Water:

There is a good producing domestic well drilled when the home was built, and water rights to a small spring for stock-water and irrigation are included.

Hunting & Recreation:

Situated along the Clark Fork River near the mouth of Idaho’s largest and deepest lake, Pend Oreille, between stunning mountain peaks and nationally protected forests, the hunting and recreating potential of this property is unsurpassed. Neighborhood wildlife includes deer, elk, moose, wolf, bear, cougar, badger, coyote, grouse, ducks, geese, and more! A shallow point in the river creates a natural wildlife crossing, and the river is an important habitat for fish and waterfowl. Easy access to waterways for boating, fishing, and other water sports. Close to world-class Schweitzer Ski Resort in the Selkirk Mountains. Fishing is exceptional. The ranch may work well for a timbered, riverfront family retreat, corporate retreat, hunting and fishing club, riverfront development, or your own private piece of paradise.
