8205 N Tongass Highway, Ketchikan, Alaska 99901
This 2 Bedroom 1.5 Bath home is nestled into Refuge Cove and sits on the waters edge. Enjoy morning sunrises with seals playing in the cove while Eagles soar overhead in search of a morning snack. The lot is terraced, and the property was originally zoned as a duplex with two structures. The home is resident on the lower terraced beachside and the now demolished rental unit resided on the upperportion adjacent to N. Tongass Hwy. With the removal of the rental unit there is ample room for off street parking or the possibility for constructing an onsite garage.
The upstairs was remodeled in 2015 with two new spacious bedrooms incorporated into the floor plan. The master suite is complete with an ensuite half bath. The primary entry opens into a comfortable living room with views of the cove. The laundry/utility room is located just off the main entry. Step up into the dining room and enjoy unrestricted views of Refuge Cove. The kitchen adjoins the dining area and affords the cook panoramic views of the cove.
In between the house and the beach is a rock containment wall that provides over 100 feet of uplands property between the beach and the front of the property. Based upon the orientation of the uplands there is enough room for the budding gardener to plant a lawn or a “jardin à la française.” Alternatively, this uplands area can be used for parking a boat or for motor home storage.
This property is perfect for a couple in their early stages of matrimonial bliss or for an experienced mature couple. The property can easily be converted to a VRBO rental as the zoning is CG. Either way this property provides a scenic pastoral escape from the hustle and bustle of current pandemic existence.
