Gated 15 Acre Coeur d’Alene Lakefront Estate

Reminiscent of an English Country Manor, mortared in Rocky Mountain Granite, this singular Lake Coeur d’Alene gated estate has few rivals.  While premium waterfront property typically claims no more than a mere acre or two, this massive gated estate is nestled on a full 15 Acres, on 510 feet of deep water lakefront.

Incomparable cerulean lake views from large Palladian picture windows adorn most spaces of the 7330 sq ft  6 Bedroom, 5.5 Bath Main House.  Generous expanses of Eastern Butternut hardwood flooring, tongue-in-groove vaulted ceilings & hand-hewn beaming grace the interior of this Cross-gabled Tudor Revival. Interior hallways and a grand foyer are founded in Idaho Diamond Plate Rock.

Grand Stone Fireplace takes a well-deserved seat of honor in the formal living room.

Sun-drenched Palladian picture windows frame a breathless blue Lake View from the exquisite Formal Dining room, featuring a built-in sideboard.

That St Charles cabinetry is augmented in the Gourmet Kitchen, & faces a full suite of appliances, including built-in refrigerator.  The chef who masters this domain is treated to another Lake Vista, as well as a large granite island breakfast bar with prep sink & gas Cooktop.

Fairy-tale Master Suite has a Gas Fireplace framed in a charcoal surround with White Mantle & hearth.  The restful watery dreamscape is again a dominant focus to this heavenly retreat.

Trophy room is perfect for any prize: from big game or your Biggest Games. Equipped with a “Murphy” bed and its own bathroom, this could also serve as a 6th bedroom or guest room.  Daylight lower level boasts a Home Gym, Wine Room & Theater Room with two rows of theater-style seating. Also included in lower level are 2 full bedrooms with bath, sitting room and secret safe room.

Main Level Family Room features a wood-burning fireplace in a rocked wall with media niche, flanked by two walls of Lake Views, one of which opens onto an Outdoor Patio.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped with paved walkways and stairways, granite rockwork walls, lush shrubbery, colorful flora & Champion-Quality Tennis Court.

The Luxury 1500 sq ft guest house could serve as two separate guest quarters. Main Level has a Rocked Corner Fireplace in the Great Room, Master Suite & Full Granite Kitchen. Upper Level features a Bedroom Suite with Granite Kitchenette.  Guest House also features un-impeded Lake viewing.

Scenic patios boast views of Lake Coeur d’Alene and pine-, fir- and tamarack-studded mountains.  By day, bask in sunny North Idaho perfection from the Sandy Beach at the waterfront. Swim, fish or launch almost any type of watercraft from the 1110 sq ft, 3-slip Boat Dock with Lift.  Gather around the Outdoor Fireplace at day’s end for an evening of star-gazing.  An adorable single-room ‘Duck House’ on the waterfront might be suitable as artist’s studio or a play cabin.

Located five miles from The Golf Club at Black Rock, a world-class members-only community.
