Where eccentricity, love of family, and the cabin life combine to offer the perfect craftsman’s wilderness retreat. This unique cabin neighboring Nordic Valley Resort is surrounded by four equally well-crafted outbuildings; and boasts instant access to the backcountry, abundant recreational storage, and privacy.
A RV storage barn designed for both function and style is 50’ deep and equipped with reinforced concrete able to support the heaviest and largest of diesel pushers. The back half of the oversized barn expands in width for additional workspace or storage.
After purchasing an antique church bell, the current owner designed and built an archetypal chapel complete with a fully functional steeple in which the church bell rests and when called upon can be heard across Ogden Valley. The structure is plumbed for electricity and can be used for multiple purposes. Custom stained glass windows from a local artisan include a section of personal inscriptions that would require alterations or replacement. Attached is a “stable” for ATV or recreational storage.
Built with safety and minimal maintenance in mind, a kids playhouse placed upon stilts, is purposely elevated for access during winter. Featuring Trex composite decking, custom sized kid-friendly steel-clad doors, full electrical and lighting, a rock wall, slide, fireman’s pole, ships wheel, and a swing. The two-story playhouse includes built-in bunk beds on the upper level that also accesses the raised deck with added safety railings.
Originally constructed as a detached office, the fourth of the outbuildings was converted into a guest room. This one-room building features a vaulted ceiling, a modest porch deck, and is wired for electrical.
The two-story three-bedroom main log cabin is heated with both propane and a wood stove. Built with an Old Faithful Lodge vibe, this cabin is cozy while still providing large areas for entertaining, the upstairs loft is spacious enough it currently hosts two twin log beds for additional sleep space, along with a couch and love seats. Off the upper loft is a deck overlooking Nordic Valley Resort, Ogden Valley, and surrounding mountains.
Slate counters and hickory cabinets adorn the rustic kitchen leading to the dining table. Double doors off the dining area access the expansive raised deck above the three-car garage. To the opposite end of the home is an attached greenhouse with robust redwood counters, two thermostats regulating ventilation and heat, along with a full sprinkler system for multiple layers of planters.
The main-level master bedroom is adjacent the upgraded full bath anchored by a repurposed antique armoire into a sink. A brand new 40-gallon propane water heater supplies immediate hot water to this bathroom, and throughout the home.
Downstairs is home to two additional bedrooms, a bath, and a spacious laundry room with additional storage. Access to the three-car garage is also on the lower level. Built-in wood working shelving currently limits the garage to a two-car with a removable workshop.
All rock included in the buildings and structures were sourced on-site. All buildings are equipped with a 50 year steel roof, are plumbed for electrical, Trex-decking where appropriate, and 10-year exterior wood sealant. A splendid mountain home with the ability to host larger gatherings, plentiful storage, and immediate access to recreation, this cabin with its surrounding outbuildings is the perfect wilderness retreat.
