The Anderson home and acreage is distinctively nestled in the Ridge Country between the West Mountains and Cuddy Mountain in the heart of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. The location is auspicious, capturing sweeping views of the two mountain ranges, timbered slopes and draws, rim rock bluffs and the picturesque farm and ranch lands of the Council Valley. Millions of acres of National Forest, State of Idaho and BLM lands wrap the Ridge country on three sides reaching for miles in all directions and all the way to Hell’s Canyon on the Snake River. Mountain streams, springs, lakes and reservoirs throughout the area contribute to rich riparian corridors and an incredible variety of wildlife from song birds to big game. The distinct four season climate is year around living at its best. From gardening to skiing, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and 4 wheeling, the territory offers magnificent diversity.
Council is the Adams County Seat, a small Idaho town with a big sense of community. Just a 15 minute drive south of the Anderson property, Council offers a variety of shops and services, professional and medical, K-12 schools and a small airport. The mountain resort town of McCall on Payette Lake, popular for summer and winter outdoor recreation, boutique shops and fine restaurants is just 30 miles north. Boise Airport is 122 miles southeast of Council via state and interstate highways.
Tucked back and nestled just under the ridgeline, placement and design of the home and outbuildings has been accomplished with artistic intention. The fit with the terrain is natural; the improvements blend and belong with the landscape as if they have always been there. The first sight of the home is exciting; the promise of that excitement is kept: A substantial log overhead and the rail fencing that lines the driveway creates a dramatic, yet tasteful, entry. Once inside, the open concept home incorporates a beautiful, spacious kitchen, dining area and comfortable living room area into a Great Room beneath cathedral ceilings. Ceramic tile floors, Salmon River Stone and log accents are highlighted by recessed lighting. Kitchen, living room and master bedroom feature picture windows that capture magnificent sweeping views of the Council Valley and West Mountains! Style and design combine with exceptional amenities to make this home on 40 acres worthy of its extraordinary surroundings.
