A charming c.1909 Craftsman home on a double city lot with nearly 2,800 square feet of interior space is on the market in Coeur d’Alene for $780,000. Just a few blocks from beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene and a short walk to the city parks, dining and shopping, the landmark property is home of the famous “Little Free Library” carved out of a 110-year-old tree that’s been featured in Oprah’s magazine, Southern Living and House Beautiful. According to Little Free Library, “When a 110-year-old cottonwood tree in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, needed to be removed, Sharalee Armitage Howard—a librarian, artist, and bookbinder—transformed it into an amazing Little Free Library. Now, instead of providing shade, the tree will share books. The not-so-little Library, which stands in Sharalee’s front yard, features inviting stone steps, a sloped roof, a large green door, and warm interior and exterior lights. The details of the Library are exquisite, with miniature wooden books—like Call of the Wild and Nancy Drew—trimming the entrance. It is registered with the Little Free Library nonprofit organization, charter #82068, and can be found on our world map.”
The house features a large covered porch, bright and inviting interiors, open living and dining rooms, a spacious kitchen with island and 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms including the master suite with 2 walk-in closets. There is also a fully finished walkout basement with keg bar, entertainment area and lots of storage. Outdoor living spaces feature a large covered deck, covered front porch with a porch swing, slat patio, hot tub, charming play house, chicken coop, fire pit, beautifully landscaped yard, garden, fruit trees and RV parking. It’s on the market for $780,000 with Nicole Coco Jensen of Windermere Real Estate.
