Panoramic views are a major plus in this lodge-style home, so families will want to chose their lot with care. Vistas from the vaulted hexagonal great room and deck are the most expansive, but those from almost every room can be stunning. The kitchen is open to the great room and is also vaulted, as is the luxurious owners’ suite.

Sandpoint serves up spectacular views
Because panoramic views are a major plus in the Sandpoint, families will want to chose their lot with care. Canyon walls, streams, seascapes, lakesides, rolling hills and/or soaring mountain peaks can be fully appreciated from inside this home.
The most expansive are views from the vaulted hexagonal great room and the wide deck that spans the entire rear and segues into a large screened porch. But the visual fields are also splendid from the office/bedroom, the kitchen, and both bathtubs.
Built-in benches rim part of the entry deck. To enter this shingle-style lodge, you walk between slender twinned posts set on tapered stone veneer bases. The vaulted porch opens into an even loftier vaulted entry inside double doors. The entry is part and parcel of the hexagonal great room, where six ceiling segments soar to a central apex high above.
At floor level, the entry is separated from the great room by an eight-foot-high section of wall or shelves. On the other side, a freestanding wood stove backs up to that wall, which could be bricked, tiled or whatever suits. Bookshelves and a home entertainment center line the wall to the right of the entry. Two rooms are down the hallway on that side. A generously sized vaulted kitchen is to the entry's left.
Skylights spill more light into the Sandpoint's already bright kitchen. Counters wrap around three sides, and an abundance of cabinets line two of them. Laundry appliances and a deluxe owners' suite are just a few steps down the hall.
Owners' suite amenities include a vaulted ceiling and walk-in closet. The spacious bathroom boasts a dual vanity, roll-in shower, and a deep tub with what could be a wonderfully relaxing view.
