This beautiful custom home on 38 acres occupies an enormously rich and captivating setting in the picturesque Bacon Valley near Goodrich. Perfectly positioned on an overlooking point at the base of the scenic 7,867 foot Cuddy Mountain, the residence captures commanding views of the mountains and foothills, irrigated hay fields and the Weiser River that threads through the valley. The single level, open concept home merges quality, craftsmanship and artistic design with warmth, comfort and character. At the hub is an 825 sq. ft. Great Room crowned with cathedral ceilings and anchored by a centerpiece floor to ceiling Boise River Stone Fireplace. Living room, dining room and kitchen are integrated, each with its own focus and distinction. The spacious cook’s kitchen is large enough for several chefs; an impressive 16 foot tiled “breakfast” bar is perfect for quick meals, a latte’ and socializing while the cooks are working their magic. The adjacent formal dining area is at once elegant for special occasions and relaxed for every day meals. The living room area wraps around the fireplace and built-in entertainment center. On top of it all, picture windows line the west wall of the Great Room seizing the extraordinary views and opportunity to watch an incredible variety of wildlife from songbirds and water fowl to elk and deer. This is a rural Idaho home and acreage in a class of its own.
Goodrich is a peaceful, undiscovered area in the Hell’s Canyon Rim Country, just the right distance off the beaten path, yet with easy access to roads and highways to nearby towns and services. This is big recreation country, rich with rivers, canyons, creeks, reservoirs and mountain lakes. Access to the Weiser River for swimming, floating and fishing is merely a walk across the hay field; access to the 70 mile long Weiser River Trail for hiking, mountain biking and horse-back riding is within minutes. The Payette National Forest with over 2 million acres surrounds the area on three sides. Cambridge is approximately 8 miles south and Council, the County Seat of Adams County is approximately 13 miles north. Both towns offer a diversity of shops and services, K-12 schools, eateries, public libraries and much more. Boise is an approximate 2 hour drive primarily by state and interstate highways. McCall, one of Idaho’s favorite mountain resort towns about 50 miles north, adds to the areas extraordinary summer/winter recreation opportunities.
