This turn-key property enjoys unobstructed views of the Seldovia mountains, Kasitsna Bay and the islands to the north, and Kachemak Bay to the south with 180 degree views of Iliamna and Redoubt on a clear day and over 220 feet of waterfront - 110 on Kachemak Bay and 110 on Kasitsna Bay. Spacious living quarters inside and ample outside living areas make this a spectacular property!This family legacy property has fantastic morning sun because it faces the "inside"/Kasitsna Bay side of the spit, and also enjoys unobstructed and glorious sunsets as the other side faces Kachemak Bay. You have access to the beach on both sides of the property, as it is primarily level throughout, and has direct 4 wheeler access to the home via the Kasitsna Bay side. There are a few mature trees and a large eagles nest above the home! The majority of the land is protected on the Kachemak Bay side, lined with the plastic linked together sea wall, creating a protected "yard" behind the wall. On the Kasitsna side, the retaining wall is made of treated wood and is very solidly built. This side isn't directly impacted by the open ocean, and provides great beachcombing, clamming and calm waters great for kayaking and rowing around in a protected bay. At low tide a solid sandbar is revealed and folks often land planes for a quick drop off or pick up, of course paying attention to our grand tides! This neighborhood is a special place, where you enjoy unobstructed views of the Seldovia mountains, Kasitsna Bay and the islands to the north, and Kachemak Bay to the south with 180 degree views of Iliamna and Redoubt on a clear day! It is accessible via a private 4 wheeler easement off of Jakolof Bay Road and can be accessed year round if you have plowing capabilities or stay on the beach! There is a ramp up from the beach on the Kasitsna side. The parcel is .42 acres, with approximately 110' of waterfront on both Kasitsna Bay and Kachemak Bay (over 220 feet of beachfront in total). The charming 1,412 sq ft home was built in stages beginning around 1969. The living room area with vaulted ceiling was constructed in 1979 and the spacious ground floor"Bridal Suite" was added to the property in 1996. The home is heated with a toyo stove, which is a very efficient and reliable fuel oil system, along with a fireplace for supplemental and ambiance heat, though it is rarely used. Because of its location far out along the Spit, the property is in the sun from sunrise to sunset, so you enjoy the benefits of solar heat too! The property is also served by HEA. This last year, the entire deck around the home was replaced with treated materials. The non-conventional, though very effective septic system is created with two upside down buried barrels, and have never been an issue. There is no way for the septic to be further than 100 feet from the water due to the fact that the Spit is surrounded on either side by the two bays. This system has adequately served the owners for almost 50 years with many guests and without fail. The water to the cabin is fed by a line from the hillside at the base of the spit which serves the entire spit properties. Owner has a large holding tank and water pump so there is always plenty of water and pressure to the property. All you need to bring is food as the home is being sold fully furnished and outfitted, so that it will be a turn-key opportunity for the buyer. There is one large bedroom (the Bridal Suite) on the main level with a King size bed and views of Kasitsna Bay and a smaller bedroom which has a Queen size bed with views of Kachemak Bay. There is also a cozy bunk loft with 4 twin beds, which is great for visitors and small family members as it is not tall enough to stand in and has views of Kachemak Bay! There are two bathrooms one is a full bath including a tub, toilet and sink and the other is has a toilet and sink and the laundry facilities attached to the "Bridal Suite". The downstairs vaulted ceiling area hosts the kitchen and dining area which face Kasitsna Bay and the morning sun, and the living room area faces Kachemak Bay and enjoys the cozy fireplace and plenty of seating for family and friends to gather. The windows in the main room allow you to sit in the dining or living room areas and see both sides of the Spit, so you enjoy a clear view from beach to beach! Outside, the ramp and stairway comes up to the property from Kasitsna Bay onto a very large and beautifully deck built sturdy with pressure treated materials. This ramp is large enough to bring a side-by-side vehicle up onto the property. On the dock you have all the necessary things to manage a days catch! From a large fish cleaning table and hook up to fresh water to to a commercial vacuum packer and walk-in flash freezer. There are two buildings located on the dock. One shop that houses the large walk-in flash freezer, working tables and shelving and can store 2 four wheelers as well as an upright freezer and shelving with fishing gear, a commercial vacuum packer and ample room to process the catch of the day! A second and smaller shop is great for storage and houses a chest freezer and a spare beverage full-size refrigerator. The dock also has a very large smoker, so that you can smoke your fish right there! There is also another larger garage/shop which is adjacent to the home, which has ample storage and can fit two other 4 wheelers and all the necessary tools to support living in a remote beachfront property. The shop will be sold with fishing poles, tools, and even 4 4-wheelers will stay on the property. There are two above ground fuel tanks, one for diesel and one for gas that have been available to store their own supply fuels to keep the "toys"/vehicles, boats, etc running! Even though there are indoor toilets, there is also a convenient outhouse on site! Property is being sold with the 16 foot Lund skiff with a new Honda 4 stroke 20hp motor so you can get out and fish! This property was built to create an adventurous and enjoyable Alaskan experience. The sellers began their summer lifestyle exactly 50 years ago this year! So you will enjoy the many years of collecting and creating a perfect experience with all the luxuries of home in a remote and gorgeous location! Turn-key and all ready to go, for you to enjoy from day 1!
