This rare mid-century modern architecturally designed home has been completely remodeled over the last three years. This is a house you see in magazines. Located in the hills above the inversion on 2 acres, the house has 4 large bedrooms, 4 bathrooms plus a finished dry cabin that can be used as an extra bedroom, work-from-home space, or workshop. The floor to ceiling windows throughout the home offer spectacular views of Denali and the entire city of Fairbanks, all while making you feel like you’re in the midst of a birch forest.

The designer details in this home are a must see. The plumbing and electric has been entirely replaced and updated to include smart home features such as nest thermostats, USB outlets, and integrated lighting throughout the cabinets. The brand new chef’s kitchen includes an induction cooktop, wall oven, and endless storage space. The cabinets throughout the home were sourced from Scandinavia and all designed by well-known architects. The featured paint is environmentally friendly small batch limewash paint flown-in from Los Angeles. Build-in furniture features throughout the home were custom built by a local master carpenter. The light fixtures throughout the home were hand-picked by an interior designer and sourced internationally.

The entrance floor of the home features the kitchen, living area, half bath, and a main bedroom that has enough space for a king sized bed and a built-in daybed. The attached main bathroom has a double shower with handmade designer cement tile. The bottom floor of the home has a fireplace with a seating area, laundry room, utility room, extra storage space, and three additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms. One of these bedrooms is designed as a second main bedroom or a guest suite with a bathroom, seating area, and separate entrance with an outdoor deck. The entire bottom floor can be closed off from the top floor of the home with a sliding door for extra privacy. This set-up works well if the homeowner wants to use part of the home for a short-term rental, bed and breakfast situation, or to get away from noisy teenagers.

This is a house designed for entertaining. The kitchen has a large butcher block island with a built-in beer tap, breakfast nook, and an outdoor balcony seating space with amazing views. There is a second covered patio area with built-in furniture as well as two outdoor patio sitting areas. Outdoors you’ll also find a custom made wood-fired brick pizza oven, greenhouse, small nature trail, and two storage sheds. The outdoor area is also wired with a plug for an RV and has a brand new cedar hot tub.
