Testimony of the value of an architect's perspective, this spacious 1720 sq. ft., 3 bedroom/2 bath custom residence is a beautiful example of quality home design and strategic placement blending to compliment the settings natural seclusion. The home’s plethora of picture windows and two covered decks capture commanding views of quiet, picturesque Bacon Valley, Cuddy Mountain, the sweep of the West Mountains and the thread of the Weiser River.  The residence was designed by a Seattle architect for the specific location with the intention of maximizing the exceptional view opportunity and maintaining the rich indigenous natural habitat long and well established.  Well regarded builders and craftsmen, Gene Langer and Mike Campbell, were the contractors.  The 720 sq. ft. finished shop was later added.


Bacon Valley is a quiet, undiscovered area in West Central Idaho’s Hell’s Canyon Rim Country located just the off the beaten path, yet with easy access by county maintained roads, state and interstate highways to nearby towns and cities.  This is big recreation country, rich with rivers, canyons, creeks, reservoirs and mountain lakes.  The Payette National Forest with over 2 million acres surrounds the area on three sides and stretches all the way to the Snake River.

The Weiser River through Bacon Valley is well regarded as a fishery and perfect for floating and fishing late spring and early summer.  The Weiser River Trail welcomes non-motorized access for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding along the Weiser River for nearly 80 miles.  Access is easy to the Weiser River and The Weiser River Trail as well as enormous expanses of national forest, BLM and state lands.  Wildlife in abundance includes elk, mule deer, wild turkey and water fowl that fly in and out spring and fall. 

Cambridge, the nearest town and service center is about 7 miles southwest; Council, the Adams County Seat is about 12 miles north. Both Cambridge and Council are small towns with a big sense of community.  Both have a variety of businesses including eateries, lumberyards, grocery stores, libraries and K-12 schools.  Cambridge hosts Hell’s Canyon Days in June and the Washington County Fair and Rodeo in August.  Council is known for its 4th of July Celebration, the Adams County Fair and Rodeo and annual music festival.  The popular winter/summer resort town of McCall is about 50 miles north.  The state capitol city of Boise and Boise International Airport is approximately a two hour drive primarily on state and interstate highways.
