You may say you are not seeing right, but yes; this is the real McCoy! It is like finding a needle in a haystack, above the Arctic Circle. This property ownership dates way back and several books have been written by the original owner, famous Bush Pilot, Guide; Harmon "Bud" Helmericks. (Google his name to see the books written).
The heirs and there are quite a few of them, came to the conclusion that it was now time to sell. And yes, they appointed someone to manage their affairs and we are proud that they choose us as their
"Exclusive Sales Agent".
As you probably know, the Park Service bought many properties (in-holdings), but this one, well, they may have to compete with private buyers.
I am sure the Park wants to buy it but as a government agency they have an awkward way to go about it, so here is your chance to buy the Whole Private Island on Walker Lake (apr. 14 miles long and full of fish).
The "Lodge" please see pictures, is in excellent shape, apr. 2.200 sq. ft. 3 story building with 3 Bedrooms and 2 Baths. Then there is a single-story Log Cabin, plus another Log Cabin and all in great shape.
There is a Green House to grow your own veggies during the summer months, and yes they will do well plus the Boat House, but both need some TLC.
This is a "Turn Key" property as everything stays and is included in the price. A full Kitchen with a propane Refrigerator/Freezer, range, wood stove/oven, hot water heater. Well, there is more, from a speed boat to a 32' sail boat, a Kubota Tractor with attachments, a Welder and many other items needed to live in the wilderness.
Obviously, there is more wildlife to see than let's say McKinley Park, but then it is far away from civilization; i.e. about 260 miles northwest of Fairbanks.
This lake is the headwaters of the world-famous Kobuk River. We could go on and on about the breathtaking beauty of this region , but you will not believe it until you see for yourself.
A good starting point after you have read all and looked at the pictures below, would be to Google "Gates of the Arctic National Park" and see the fantastic surroundings of this wilderness area and all that it has to offer: Wildlife – Fishing – Trekking and yes, Northern Lights Viewing.
As I said, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Offered for $4,500,000.-
