HIDDEN BAY RETREAT IN SOUTHEAST ALASKA IS “HOUSE OF THE DAY” IN WALL STREET JOURNAL
What once was a secret retreat for a private family is now front and center on a global stage as Hidden Bay Retreat is listed for sale and was featured by The Wall Street Journal on June 27th in an article called “Life in the Boondocks” and then again as “House of the Day" on July 11, 2013.
“It’s of little surprise that this unique property has drummed up so much attention – it’s an extraordinary residential accomplishment in one of the most remote locations on earth,” said Dean Jones, Owner of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. “I had the pleasure to tour the home and even snuck in a fishing trip (we quickly limited in our catch). I know understand the calling of Alaska.”
This isn’t the first time the property has received high-profile media attention since it was announced the home and land portfolio would listed for sale. The property was also featured in a recent article by Jetset Magazine called A NEW CURRENCY EMERGES, which captures the trends for global wealth to consumer unique, destination real estate as an asset class instead of stocks or bonds. The property was also featured in articles in Elite Traveler, Ocean Home, At Auction as well as in The Collection, published by Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty.
Alone in its class, Hidden Bay Retreat comprises more than 45 acres and includes nearly a kilometer of low-bank waterfront along some of the most productive recreational fishing grounds on earth. The three bedroom 2,382 sq. ft. chalet style home was built with custom milled heartwood cedar trees and boasts its own power plant for sustainable operations at up to six months at a time.
“I think this property will sell to another family to be used precisely how it was or could easily be purchased by a collective of avid yachtsman and fisherman who desire to share in this unique asset,” adds Jones. “Alternatively, it could be purchase by a company as a corporate retreat for top employees and VIP clients or even operated as a lodge. With amply power and residential infrastructure, the adjacent parcels could easily host modular bungalows constructed offsite and barged in for additional guest capacity. Or the adjacent seven parcels could be sold to third parties or additional development of private homes.”
