    Description

    Built when woodcraft was an art form, Swan House is a gem to behold. The grand entry welcomes you with a custom art piece made from lapis, jade, white quartz, rose quartz, amethyst and gold tailings. The details don't end there. Upon entering, drink in the woodwork, the inlays, the architecture. All as breathtaking as the day it was constructed. This is truly a home like no other and a must see.Some information worth noting: *Home is on a nearly half an acre corner lot in a quiet Hillside neighborhood overlooking the city of Anchorage with Mt. McKinley as views. The new deck is perfectly positioned to take in the summer sun and the winter views. *Designed by architect, William Samples, for Al and Jerry Bergstrom, who were the owners of the largest lumber company at the time, Knik Lumber. *Home took 22 months to build with a full crew and no breaks. *All wood was custom milled for the home. *"Swan House" was designed to resemble a swan in flight, with wings on two sides, and has earned its title as "a trophy home" by Travel & Leisure Magazine. *Featured on the front page of Anchorage Daily News when it was completed. *It was a very successful B&B for many years. *Wyland stayed here while he created the "Whaling Wall" mural downtown. *The semi-precious stone entry way art is titled "Scene inside a blue diamond" *There are 127 windows in different geometrical shapes to bring in an abundance of natural light. *In the darker months, 160 lights on the inside of the home and 58 on the outside, including theatrical lights on all the stairs keep the home as bright or as ambient as you desire. *A few of the wood types include Heartwood Redwood, Black Walnut & Oak *Chefs kitchen with Thermador Appliances, granite counters and extra large stainless sink. *Gas Fireplace showcases inlaid and backlit jade panel of swans over the black walnut fireplace mantle. * A 16 foot long sky bridge runs from the Primary Suite, over the living room and to a private office. *Primary Suite has two walk-in closets, a private sitting room/additional office and built-in Red Oak crafted bed. *Primary ensuite was recently updated. Large shower now features custom stonework, bench and dual shower wand/adjustable rainhead. Tucked away heated bidet. Ensuite also has a private sauna with new heater. *The Guest House has been rented long term as well as a vacation rental. It had brand new carpet installed this month.
