Description

If you want to get away from it all & live instead in a remote, friendly, subsistence community, this Edna Bay property is the perfect choice! With a spacious beach house, a duplex, a year round spring, 3.29 acres & 282ft waterfront, this property offers peace, privacy, a calmer lifestyle & potential income! There are many possibilities here & with no property tax you have the freedom to explore!Building remotely is challenging & expensive, so this property is sensational value for what it offers. Where else can you get a waterfront home as well as 2 apartments for rental income on several acres? The homes are built using lots of natural materials & have that wonderful, rustic, cabin-in-the-woods feel, but with lots of comfort. So let's look at this interesting & versatile property in more detail now. The Beach House is a spacious & comfortable Alaskan style home. The older part was once a float house, & it has a large, newer, 2 story addition. You enter through this addition on the lower level, this is currently used as a work room/ shop. This big covered space offers great versatility. Turn part of it into a mudroom & there is room enough for a master bedroom suite if desired. If you are looking to make more income in this new lifestyle & would like to try a cafe (which I've been told Edna Bay needs), this could also become a dining room that flows over to the waterfront deck outside. So lots of possibilities! Through the next door you enter the kitchen & living room. The home feels charming & rustic in that older Alaskan style with wood counters & panelling, cute curtained cabinets & a Blaze King wood stove. One bathroom with a shower/tub is adjacent. Upstairs is the addition, a huge, spacious, light filled room that can make any rainy day a delight with big windows and stunning diagonal patterned wood paneling (which offers strength but also beauty to the walls). Off this room comes the bedrooms, these bedrooms are part of the original floathouse and have an unusual floor plan but they would make for a lovely bedroom suite for children or guests. Some more modern interior updates would look wonderful! The Duplex is a little ways away from the Beach House, giving it privacy. This newer building has a clever design with a private entry on either side & a spare room in the middle. Both apartments are almost identical, with an open kitchen living room & bathroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. The spare room in the middle is on the upper level, this can be opened & locked from either side if you need another bedroom or even a meeting room for your groups. On the lower level, the middle room houses the generator and other utilities. The Duplex feels bright & comfortable and has a lot of open space outside to enjoy. The sellers said that they get a lot of requests to rent them longer term to the forest service, and many more requests for vacation rentals during summer. Both homes include generators, propane ranges & on-demand hot water, and the property also has a hardline phone & excellent internet. The Duplex has efficient propane heaters & the Beach House has a Blaze King wood stove. There are also several useful outbuildings, lots of flowering perennials & lots of garden space; everything you need to get off and running for a new life is right here! Edna Bay is a great place to go if you are looking for a remote community that really is away from it all. Yet it also has a wonderful, small, subsistence & family focused community with the basic infrastructure you need to make life more comfortable. It is a very remote area, only accessible by boat (about an hour from Naukati) or float plane. The mail plane visits 3x week and this is the best way to visit. Edna Bay has a church, post office, a small store, an excellent public dock, & if more children join the community, the school might be able to reopen. There are currently several homeschooling families that live there year round. It also has an active library with full internet and a new state-of-the-art bulk fuel facility. With independent 2nd class city status this is a great place for the independent minded! No property tax! Some business ideas for this property include renting to government agencies for longer term, short term summer vacation rentals, or even a charter fishing business; Edna Bay is in a wonderful fishing & hunting area! Apparently Edna Bay would also like a cafe or restaurant. In places like this, you can make it up as you go along, open a restaurant once a week for a community night or draw in vacationers in summer. There are lots of possibilities for the right person, and the right person for places like this are resourceful & independent thinkers. This property is likely not financeable and will best be a cash sale. This property is great value, in a breathtaking, remote location with a delightful community! If you have DIY skills and want a quiet life focused on subsistence & really living rather than just running around being busy, this could be the perfect place for you. And with so much on the property you can invite your family & friends or start a business - the sky is no limit here!
