In Idaho’s Magical City of Coeur d’Alene, This Meticulously Designed Lakeside Gem is Both World-class Resort and Pictorial Playground
It’s not often that one stumbles across a home that can be rightly considered the total package. But this Adirondack-style showpiece perched along the idyllic southern shores of Northern Idaho’s picturesque Lake Coeur d’Alene has the works.
“It would take decades to amass 900 feet of waterfront in Coeur d’Alene,” says Cody Funk, who is co-listing the estate with Ed Kaminsky for $30 million.
“With an average lot size of 75 feet of frontage, it would take a lifetime to collect enough properties to have that sense of privacy and security. There just is not another place like this on the lake, nor is there an opportunity to have one of that size on the lake again. I cannot stress how spectacular, or rare, it is for an estate like this to be made available to the public. Our seller has put together an unbeatable package.”
What’s more, Ed Kaminsky notes, this superlative getaway also provides complete seclusion from the neighbors. “Whether you are entertaining 300 guests or you just want to escape from the world’s woes on your own,” he says, “you’ll never feel more protected and calmed after you step foot behind the gates of Skypine Estate.”
Built in summer 2011, this timber and stone-clad, Eric Hedlund-designed home can be found beyond a gated entry and paved half-mile driveway. It offers more than 16,000 square feet of grand living space highlighted by lavish design touches, including soaring ceilings, wide doorways, six propane fireplaces, and a Crestron home-automation system that operates shades, doors, cameras and whole-house audio with the touch of a finger.
Among the highlights: four, fully furnished en-suite bedrooms (including a stunning master suite with its own office, exercise/yoga room, and spa-like bath with steam shower), as well as a theater, cigar room, and finished basement outfitted with a game room, full bath and direct beach access.
As impressive as the main house might be, however, the outside environs truly elevate the residence to top-tier status. Multiple covered stone terraces and enclosed porches, a Las Vegas-inspired waterfall, and a secluded sandy beach are just the beginning. The resort-like residence also includes a 2,400-square-foot boathouse with a total of eight watercraft, ranging from jet skis to a 34-foot StanCraft.
Also part of the sale is an on-site helicopter landing pad, along with a duo of aircraft hangars with office space and baths at nearby Coeur d’Alene Airport (one 12,500 square feet with an 80-foot-by-26-foot door, and the other 6,650 square feet with a 60-foot-by-15-foot door), and an adjacent 7-plus-acre, lake-view property holding a 1,500-square-foot building housing maintenance and snow-removal equipment.
“This home is absolutely impossible to duplicate,” says Ed Kaminsky.
“There is likely no chance to ever combine this many properties together and create the only thing that most of us search for our entire lives—peace, relaxation, serenity, family, fun, safety, privacy and pure joy. It truly is an oasis within reach. In addition, it’s surrounded by the most meticulous landscaping that absolutely captures your heart and soul as you wander the grounds. Not one blade of grass or flower is out of place. I can say I have never seen anything like this in my 32-year career, and I’m truly honored to not only represent the property but also to have been allowed to just step on to it. It renders you speechless.”
