    Description

    Spectacular Riverfront Country Estate in the Sayward Valley. Over 65 acres on three separate titles of gorgeous well-treed property with nearly a mile of river frontage located on the pristine Salmon River. A nature lover’s paradise with resident elk, blacktail deer and the occasional bear visiting from time to time. Numerous trails wind through the forest allowing access to multiple private sandy beaches and swimming holes on the river. The fishing is amazing when the salmon and steelhead are running.

    The residence o the property is a large 4,485 ft2 two-storey west coast style home that has a nicely appointed open concept design perfect for accommodating large gatherings. The home has been extensively upgraded over the past three years, with four bedrooms, five baths, a great room with a 17’ vaulted ceiling and a massive brick fireplace, a huge country kitchen with new premium quality appliances, a media room, a library and self contained suite. The exterior of the house has large covered verandahs on three sides, providing more than 1,200 ft2 of year-round outdoor living space. On the south side of the house, a two-tiered deck extends into the yard and steps down into the grape arbour. The yard site covers approximately an acre and includes a green house, a fenced garden, fruit trees (apple, cherry, plum, pear, hazelnut) flower beds and a small workshop. There is a high capacity drilled well on the property with no shortage of water. The adjoining hay field is approximately 4 acres with the remaining 60 acres covered by a mix of timber, including red cedar, fir, hemlock, spruce, balsam, maple, and alder.

    River Bend Guest Suites

    Over the past two years, the current owners have been using two of the suites as vacation rental accommodation. The main-floor suite has a bedroom with a sitting area, a three-piece bath, and a kitchenette for a total of 280 ft2. The larger suite has a separate bedroom, a small living room, a ¾ kitchen with a breakfast nook, and a three-piece bath for a total of 420 ft2. This suite can accommodate up to four persons comfortably with the use of a hide-a-bed. Each suite has its own private entrance.

    There is substantial potential to increase the vacation rental business, or take it to the next level by turning the property into an Exclusive Wilderness Retreat. The possibilities to this property are endless, whether you want to keep it as your own private west coast oasis or share the natural beauty of the property with other like-minded naturalists.
