Neighborhood of the week: Harbor View Estates

When you travel south from Coeur d'Alene on Highway 95, it's as if you're entering another world. You trade people and traffic for cattle, horses and elk; prairies and mountains for forested hillsides and pastoral flats.

However, the lake is a constant, stretching 25 miles south of town. Head east from Highway 95 and within minutes, you're gazing at its crystal blue waters. And if you turn onto Kidd Island Bay Road and wind your way through the varied, forested terrain, you'll soon find yourself gazing at those waters from Harbor View Estates.

Harbor View Estates is a gated neighborhood located approximately 18 minutes south of Coeur d'Alene. It's a quiet, serene, exclusive community of high-quality homes, with spectacular lake views, towering trees, and abundant wildlife.

"It's a very unique subdivision further out of town, upscale and well maintained," said Randy Oetken, a Realtor with Windermere Coeur d'Alene Realty, representing Harbor View Estates.

"It is a wonderful development, really," said Christy Oetken, also a Realtor with Windermere.

The first thing you notice when you enter this secluded neighborhood – well, besides the trees, wildlife, beautiful homes and incredible views – is how peaceful it is. "The really nice thing is that it's very quiet," Christy said. "There's no freeway or railroad noise. That's the hardest thing to find and still be close to town."

Lots are generally between .39 of an acre and 3 acres, with interior lots averaging .5 acres; most have breathtaking lake or territory views. Houses are scattered throughout the neighborhood, tucked into forested corners, clinging to rocky hillsides, nestled in lavishly landscaped nooks. And everywhere, there are trees. "The properties up here give the owners room to stretch out," Randy said. "Being as though they're on acreage, it's nice; you can get some distance between neighbors."

The stately homes in Harbor View Estates, are on larger lots, most with abundant natural landscaping and many with stunning lake views.

The developers left naturally landscaped green spaces throughout the neighborhood, and the larger lot sizes mean that there's plenty of natural terrain between the homes. "You have plenty of green space of your own," Christy said. There are a few lots available, both interior and lakeview, if you'd like to build your dream home in this serene neighborhood.

The HOA has a dedicated website to help keep residents informed, and a board of directors that guide the association. Dues are around $95/month, which include water and sewer services as well as maintenance of the roads and common areas, such as the waterfront picnic area and beach. They have their own water and sewage treatment plants.

The HOA pays close attention to every detail in this community, down to requiring builders to sweep the streets each evening, once the day's construction work is done. "The HOA has done a magnificent job maintaining the neighborhood," Christy said. "They've done a good job protecting the quality."

Residents have access to the community beach and pavilion, perfect for swimming or picnicking with family and friends on warm summer afternoons. There's a 17-slip marina owned by the Harbor View Boat Association; slips may become available for lease or purchase from time to time, but interested parties must contact that association directly.

A number of the area's premier homebuilders are represented in Harbor View Estates, such as JLR Developments. President and owner Joe Rumore has been building quality homes in North Idaho for 20 years. His houses regularly appear in the Parade of Homes, and has built in Selkirk Meadows and on Grandview in Hayden, among other prime locations.

"There's a nice variety of architectural styles," Randy said. "It's definitely not a cookie-cutter neighborhood." You'll find log homes next to Northwest Craftsman homes next to brick homes; actively enforced CC&Rs and architectural restrictions help protect their value.

Prices for properties in Harbor View Estates start at $350,000 and go up to $2 million. In 2014, homes that sold were priced from $375,000 to $950,000. There are currently two on the market, ranging from $599,900 to $1,595,000.

Residents take full advantage of the security of their gated community, walking the winding roads and enjoying the views of the lake. You'll find abundant wildlife: deer browse along the sides of the roads and nestle in front yards on sunny winter afternoons, and flocks of wild turkeys are a constant source of entertainment.

As the HOA website states, "Stop and listen to the quiet. It is remarkable."

If you're interested in owning one of the stately homes in this serene neighborhood, contact Randy and Christy Oetken at (208) 660-0506 for more information on the available properties in Harbor View Estates.

Caring for Katie

Reblogged from CDAPress.com

Originally published December 29, 2014


Katie & jacksonCOEUR d’ALENE – Katie Stolebarger’s world has been turned upside-down.

On Nov. 13, she received the worst news of her life – she has stage 4 breast cancer.

The otherwise super healthy 32-year-old single mom was in disbelief when her surgeon told her the swollen lymph node under her armpit was indeed cancer and that it had spread to her hip bone and a vertebrae on her spine. She thought she was just going in for a routine checkup.

“I immediately started sobbing and still can’t believe such a thing could be happening to me,” she said.

She is facing several rounds of chemotherapy, surgeries and radiation and won’t be able to work for a while. Stolebarger, of Coeur d’Alene, has been a real estate agent at Windermere for 13 years, and her work family at Windermere plans to be right by her side during her journey through cancer.

“She’s just a neat gal; I love her to pieces,” said Windermere co-owner and foundation secretary/treasurer Midge Smock. “We’re definitely family oriented and Katie is one of ours and we’re going to take care of her.”

Smock and her son and daughter-in-law were quick to action when they heard of Stolebarger’s distress.

“We were in Hawaii on vacation and we got a text and that was the week before Thanksgiving,” Smock said. “My daughter-in-law, son and I immediately got home and started figuring out what we could do.”

Smock and other Windermere agents are rallying support for Stolebarger to help her pay the forthcoming medical expenses as well as continue to provide for her 6-year-old son, Jackson. Smock said they have reached out to Stolebarger’s friends and others in the real estate community to donate their time or money to the cause. A Christmas photography fundraiser brought in about $7,000; combined with other efforts, fundraisers have generated close to $30,000 for Stolebarger, whose insurance deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses are about $27,000 so far.

Smock said they are in the process of setting up a trust for Stolebarger to also help with the medical bills and accompanying expenses. In the past, Windermere jumped to the rescue of one of its agents who needed a bone marrow transplant.

“We raised the money and it saved his life,” Smock said.

The real estate agency is once again stepping up for one of its employees.

“Her chemotherapy is going to be very intense,” Smock said. “We want to keep her in her apartment and help take care of her son. She’s in a fight for her life.”

Stolebarger has already gone through a couple sessions of chemo and knows she will be losing her blond hair soon. She is holding her head high and trying to maintain a positive and proactive attitude as she faces a frightening journey. She is happy and thankful to have her Windermere family.

“I can’t imagine not having them here right now,” Stolebarger said. “They’re like having an extra 100 family members to have by my side to walk through this with me.”

As for her own family, Stolebarger said being diagnosed with cancer has brought them closer. She said her friends have been supportive, too, and everyone is thinking more about the important things in life.

“I’ve been blogging about what really matters,” she said. “It’s not hair, it’s not having a perfect face or big boobs. None of that really matters because when you’re sitting in the chemo room, people are just happy to be alive. Everything just goes out the window.”

She said her family does have a history of breast cancer and she encourages all women to go in and get checked.

“I was fine, other than being a little tired. I feel fine,” she said. “Even if you feel fine, just go.”
