Garden Valley, Idaho
Very rare 155F, crystal clear, odorless artesian hot spring with a ~1000 square foot, copper-sided cabin on 1.38 acres. Located in Castle Mountain Creeks Sub Division. Mineral-rich hot spring water fills a giant custom built concrete hot tub, with multiple ergonomic levels, for soaking in the mineral-rich spring water under the stars. This is truly a one of kind house and property located 60.6 miles from door to Boise International Airport (BOI).A year round creek and a seasonal creek run through the property and a year round stream flows from the hot spring.There is a 120-square-foot matching copper sided outbuilding about 10 feet from the hot spring tub that can be used to house guests and/or a changing room. It is insulated with finished walls and hardwood floor. The adjoining lot is owned by the subdivision and is not suitable for development due to hundreds of gallons a minute of 155F steaming water springing out of the ground in several locations. The combined steam puts on a dramatic show, particularly on cold winter days. Wells on adjacent properties reach 195F. It’s like your private Yellowstone.The main cabin has an acid-stained, diamond polished concrete slab on the first floor, engineered mahogany hardwood on the 2nd floor and engineered tigerwood on the 3rd floor. It is of 6x8” post and beam construction throughout. The concrete slab is hydronically heated by the hot spring, providing ample house-wide heat throughout the year. Pressurized hot water for the household is heated by the hot spring in a custom-built heat exchanger. Drinking water is treated by an 11-stage reverse osmosis filter. Included is a 42” wide x 58” long x 4” thick, 1008-pound granite slab table in the kitchen area. The high quality construction and materials are evident throughout the cabin.Appliances include a lightly used Maytag SteamClean stainless steel dish washer, an LG stainless steel refrigerator/freezer with water/ice station in excellent shape, Premier Pro 36" stainless steel stove and range also like new, and a nearly brand new Bosch Washer/Dryer set.There is also a 600-square foot slab and concrete retaining wall ready to build on. An electrical breaker box with 100-amp service is installed. If built to 2-stories as intended, it would add another 1,200 square feet of habitable space. With the foundation in place, a building can be framed in days.The adjacent property is the home owners association geo-thermally heated pools and spa facilities for enjoyment by sub-division home owners and is only 1-mile from Terrace Lakes Resort 18-hole golf course.
