Lovely home on the Chena River with pets!
We are a professional couple; both self-employed. Married for 11 years, we have five grown children, and share nine grandchildren. We prefer not to be away from Alaska during the months of summer, but appreciate some get away time during the winter months. This will likely be a winter listing, so we will need someone that is confident with a pellet stove to maintain our secondary source of heat in our home, and care for our three dogs. We have two Springer Spaniels that are ten years old, and a Basset Hound who is two years. The river freezes at our home location, so during the winter months the river is active with skiers, snow machines, fat tire bikes and dog sledding. We also enjoy an awesome unobstructed view of the stars and Northern Lights with little ambient lighting. This is a non-smoking home.
Our Home & Location
We live right between the city of Fairbanks and the city of North Pole, off of Nordale road. Our home sits on five acres with neighbors on both sides, but not clearly visible. We have an unobstructed view of the Chena River. North Pole can be accessed from Badger Road, and Fairbanks can be accessed from either Badger or Chena Hot Springs Road. We have a two-story home, with most of our living area on the main floor. The master bedroom is on the main floor, and there is also a half bathroom with laundry facilities. Upstairs has four guest rooms, a sitting area, along with three bathrooms and a separate laundry room.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs are indoors, and are kenneled in our bedroom at night, although they are known to enjoy sprawl time on our bed. We need someone to care for them, with the same love and concern that we have for them. They are fed twice daily and let outside frequently. They are leash-trained, but walks are less frequent during colder months. They are allowed on our furniture, and are very social. We also need to be certain that our home stays warm. It is heated with an oil furnace that heats the water. We have radiant heat on our first floor and baseboard heat upstairs. Our secondary source of heat is a pellet stove. We are on an automatic delivery schedule for heating oil, and stove pellets are stocked. We also have a heated garage for vehicles. We just want to find our well cared for home in the condition as we left it. Clean sheets, clean towels, and happy, healthy pets. No smoking.
