SE 16-53-11-W5 | The Nojack Log Home Hideaway is located just ninety minutes west of Greater Edmonton. Whether looking to escape the concrete jungle on weekends or wish to live closer to your work this Log Home Hideaway is truly a Diamond in the rough. Situated on a full quarter section it is located in Yellowhead County, south of Nojack, only four kilometres off Highway Sixteen. This stunning custom-built log home was constructed in 2011 and sits majestically at the doorstep to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Tucked away from the main road it is a place your family can call its own and make special memories. Aspens and larch in the front give way to mature pine and spruce in the rear of the quarter. The quarter is a mix of open yard, previously harvested regrowth as well as virgin boreal forest. With dozens of trails leading through the forest, the property is perfect for quadding in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. The log home gives the utmost feeling of serenity. Jump on your ATV and follow the trails for the day, stopping at your little cabin in the back, nestled in the trees. Go camping on your very own property. The quarter is bordered on the west and south by crown land where wildlife is abundant - elk, moose, deer, bear, lynx and rabbits inhabit the area. The perimeter of the quarter is fenced with the interior cross fenced. Approximately ninety acres is cleared providing pasture for livestock.
Entering down the lane, the grandeur of the log home draws one to attention. The wraparound veranda invites you to sit outside with your coffee watching the sunrise, while listening to the birds sing and trees rustle. The home has twenty-five hundred square feet of living space with an additional fifteen hundred square feet of partially developed walk out basement allowing light and beauty to fill the lower level. The exquisitely crafted high vaulted wood ceiling is professionally insulated, making for cozy living areas heated from the wood burning stove in the center of the room. The main floor, with several grand windows, showcases an open concept with beautiful hickory cabinets and granite countertops contrasting the wood features. The master bedroom and its huge ensuite is situated in privacy at the one end of the home. The magnificent log stairway leading upstairs is without a doubt the focal point of the main living space. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a sitting area. Throughout the home, it is clear to see the fine craftmanship and choice of superior fixtures.
The Log Home Hideaway is perfect for any demographic. Looking to escape the rat race on weekends this Hideaway offers to Edmontonians what Whistler offers to residents of Vancouver, for millions less. Drive out after work on Thursday or Friday and take a short-day trip to Jasper National park hiking or skiing for the day and then return in the evening to the privacy of your own Log home, for an evening of warmth and relaxation with friends and family Spend the evening sitting around the fireplace reading a book or playing a game of cards.
