(Mica View Estates, Lake Coeur d’Alene. Story on pg. 7)


Wow... summer has flown by. We’re learning that life as REALTORS has it’s advantages and disadvantages, and working in such a fast-paced environment sure makes time fly. Professionally speaking, it’s been a wild summer so far! Yes - the market has been HOT. Especially in the “primary market” price points. The luxury market has definitely shown signs of life as well, but not the frenzy that you’ve maybe heard about at other market-segments. To learn more about the specifics of the sales volume and quantities at the various market segments in Kootenai County through Q1 and Q2 of 2017, take a look at our updated MARKET REPORT on page 50. And if you have any questions as to what this information means to you, please don’t hesitate to holler. We’d love to help. NOW... ON TO THE FUN STUFF! We promised a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT in our last issue of NORTH IDAHO LUXURY LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE... So here goes... You are officially the first to be made aware of our plan to launch the NORTH IDAHO OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT! It’s our vision to make the “NIO” an annual event that will drive several hundred people to North Idaho every summer. It will be a multi-course golf tournament that will attract Professional Golfers and locals alike. We hope it becomes a summer event that’s attended regularly by the very best players in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There have been other similar tournaments in Spokane for years. We think it’s time to bring a “major” golf event to North Idaho! We have the courses, we have the hotel rooms, and we have the talent... so why not? And maybe mostimportantly... it’s a chance to find out who the best golfer in town is—as we plan to have a very special prize each year for the “CHAMPION RESIDENT GOLFER OF THE YEAR.” To pull this off, WE NEED YOUR HELP! It will require hundreds of volunteers. It’s our hope to get the same kind of support that we see during Ironman and other similar city-wide events. We’ll also need SPONSORS. And maybe that’s where you come in. If you or your company has a budget that affords or requires some charitable giving, we’ll be set up as a 501C3, and will announce our charitable beneficiaries next spring. We would love to create something that stands the test of time and becomes an annual event that has the support of the entire city. Our dream is to have local TV coverage and local patrons in attendance following the action as a gallery, watching your favorite players, or participating yourselves from inside the ropes. The Pro-Am portion of the event will be set up for players of all ability levels, and the END OF SUMMER GALA will become an annual event that you won’t want to miss. Think... Festival of Trees, but summertime! If you have questions or would like to pledge your support - please give us a shout. You’ll be seeing much more from us, and the NIO, via the various local and social media outlets VERY soon. Cheers!

MICA VIEW ESTATES

WHAT IS ‘MOUNTAIN MODERN’ ARCHITECTURE? In recent years, a popular architectural style has emerged that’s inspired by the beauty of natural surroundings— A PRIME example is now UNDER CONSTRUCTION at MICA VIEW ESTATES in Coeur d’Alene at Mica Bay. This home combines clean, angled lines and sleek materials to create a modern year-round or seasonal cabin. Natural wood paneling provides visual emphasis on horizontal and vertical lines while the angled single pitch roof exudes mod design. Perhaps Kevin Jester of Architects West in Coeur d’Alene, the designer of the home at Mica View Estates, describes the essence of MOUNTAIN MODERN DESIGN best:

“MOUNTAIN MODERN is about combining authenticity and integrity with the simplicity of clean design and crisp lines.”

THE FALLS AT HAYDEN LAKE

Q:

This place seems fantastic. Can you tell me more?

A:

In a nutshell, THE FALLS is the finest gated waterfront neighborhood in North Idaho—and quite possibly, the entire Western United States. There are 46 lots on 56 acres.

Q:

Does every lot come with a boat slip? Do we pay extra for it? Can we use our boat right away? Or do we need to wait until we build a home?

A:

Every lot comes with a boat slip, and yes, you can begin using it, and all of the other community ammenities for that matter, as soon as you close on the purchase of a lot.

Q:

Is there an HOA? If so, what are the dues and what does the List of Services look like?

A:

HOA dues are less than $200/mo. Dues cover maintenance of the parks, pavilions, trails, marina, waterfall & gondola. They also pay for snow removal in the winter.

Q:

How strict are the design guidelines? Are there height restrictions?

A:

A list of the CCRs & Design Requirements can be provided upon request. Yes, there are height restrictions based on proximity to the ‘rim.’

Q:

In this market, why haven’t the prices at The Falls decreased like we’ve seen in other neighborhoods?

A:

There are only 46 lots at THE FALLS, & when they’re gone, they’re gone. Only 46 lucky families will get to call this place “home” and experience what can never be recreated.

Q:

If we decide to buy a lot and build, can we bring our own builder, or is there a list of preferred builders that we can choose from?

A:

Yes, you are welcome to work with the builder of your choosing, provided all design standards are met.

Q:

The Falls seems like it’s quite a ways out there. What utilities are available?

A:

While The Falls feels like it’s in a remote location, it’s literally only a couple minutes from town and is connected to city water and city sewer. High speed internet is available too!

$2,249,000* | 4476 sq ft | 4 bd | 3.5 ba | 0.77 acres | L32 NOW UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Feel free to come check out the progress of this majestic lake-view lodge that sits perched high above scenic Hayden Lake on one of The Falls’ premier lots. Dramatic views in all directions. Easy access to town, the highway, and two nearby golf courses, including the idyllic Hayden Lake Country Club. Boat slip included. Hurry while there’s still time to pick your finishes.

GOZZER RANCH

HEY MIKE... tell us more about Gozzer Ranch. Love to. I field a lot of questions about Gozzer Ranch... specifically, I’m asked to describe the property, golf course and real estate offerings. The answer to these questions are best summed up as “rustic western, unpretentious private luxury golf retreat that has been carefully placed on the perfect location above lake Coeur d’Alene.” This 700 acre property includes amenities such as a private lake club/marina with 175 boat slips, a Tom Fazio designed golf course which is currently ranked #28 of the top 100 courses in America, an oldtime themed general store, and 267 custom estate-sized home sites. Gozzer Ranch also offers several turn-key properties, such as the 34 Golf Cabins, 28 Homestead Cottages, and 28 Lakefront Condominiums. Give me a call for more information!

“Here at Gozzer Ranch, the environment is so grand and unique, there were tremendous opportunities to place golf holes in and around dramatic elevations. You won’t believe this property... it is better than anything you can imagine.” —Tom Fazio, Golf Course Architect

6275 S. OLD BARN RD. $325,000 | 1.16 acres Serene and private lot located near the Red Barn, driving range and 10th fairway at Gozzer Ranch. Let your imagination run wild, bring your builder and construct the home of your dreams on this spacious lot with big views.

» BEST NEW PRIVATE GOLF COURSE IN AMERICA, 2008 When it won in 2008, Gozzer Ranch was the 13th Best New Course triumph for architect Tom Fazio. Gozzer won in part because of its gorgeous views of Lake Coeur d’Alene to the North and West, and the panoramic farm valley to the East. Little details elevate the architecture of Gozzer Ranch: a slight false right front edge of the first green, the backboard slope behind the sixth green, the fairway contouring on the dual-fairway drivable par 4 12th that kicks even a short drive to the base of the putting surface. Its shaggyedged bunkers are more than mere decorations. Some define targets off the tee; others pose options and challenges. —Golf Digest

“Irratio nally Good Pizza”

Pi-daho Pizza Events & Catering

History of Neapolitan Pizza: Pizza as we know it today (dough topped with tomatoes and cheese) was invented in Naples, Italy. Tomatoes were brought to Europe in the 16th century by explorers returning from Peru, and poor peasants in Naples began to top their flatbread with it in the late 18th century. The dish soon became popular, with visitors to Naples seeking out the poorer neighborhoods to try the local specialty. Baker Raffaele Esposito, is generally credited with creating Margherita pizza, now known as the classic Neapolitan-style pizza. In 1889, King Umberto I and Queen Margherita of Savoy visited Naples and Esposito baked them a pizza named in honor of the queen whose colors mirrored those of the Italian flag: red (tomatoes), white (mozzarella), and green (basil leaves).

At Pi-daho Pizza, we take our hand-made, authentic sourdough crust, top it with a wide variety of fresh and unique ingredients, and bake it in our 800+ degree ovens in less than two minutes - bringing ‘irrationally good’ neapolitan style pizza to your event! We can setup and serve our amazing pies almost anywhere! Check us out on Facebook to see where we might be setup around town, and we love to do private events! Some of our Favorites!

DESIGNED BY FEEL It’s no secret that there are many fine homes at Black Rock, widely considered to be North Idaho’s premier gated golf community. The stringent design requirements in place accomplish their object—to protect the integrity of the development and to enhance its overall aesthetic. And while these design guidelines require the use of many of the same materials such as rustic timbers, cedar and stone, the way in which these materials are ultimately put together can be as varied as night and day, addding the critical flavor and flair that, in part, make a good neighborhood great. One such home, found tucked in the timbers at the secluded southeast end of stunning Onyx Circle, was completed in 2007 by Dick and Sandy Sladek. The overall concept of the community, with its foundation rooted deeply in the design aspects of quintessential “Northwest Craftsman” style architecture, provided the perfect platform on which they built their North Idaho dream home. Dick refers to the theme of the home as a “blend of customary Black Rock craftsman style with a rustic Western tone.” A theme that was executed emphatically. The Sladeks, who have previously piloted a handful of other custom construction projects, took an uncommonly bold approach to the build of this home. Rather than strictly adhere to a rigid set of plans and preconceived components, they chose instead to make critical decisions as they went along. As Dick described, “we just made decisions based on feel.” Much more impressionism than color-by-numbers. From the street view, the home appears to be very modest, if not simple. But entering through the massive hand-carved front door is like crossing the threshold of C.S. Lewis’ wardrobe. The vastness and splendor of what awaits behind will surely surprise and inspire. The first thing you’ll notice is the uncompromising view of the entire southern expanse of one of “America’s most beautiful lakes,” per National Geographic. The view from the great room is made even more dramatic by the soaring 20’ timbered ceilings and the 15’ retractable wall of glass that opens to the expansive back deck—part covered, making a very intimate outdoor living room area, complete with stone fireplace, part uncovered, with a giant gas-lit firepit serving as the centerpiece. Nearly all who have been there consider this vantage point to be the best place in Black Rock to enjoy the “long view” of the lake—typically, with a cocktail in hand and feet resting at the edge of a warming fire. The sights are only enhanced by the soothing sounds of the backyard water feature. It’s a native stone waterfall with a 6’ drop to a meandering creek where the rushing water fills the air with the melody of a genuine mountain stream. Design-by-feel was a theme carried throughout, and accounts for many other special personal touches found at every turn. The barnwood ceiling and riverrock lined sink basin in the powder bath offer a unique experience in what can otherwise be an oft-neglected room.


Another example is the fitness studio. The room now dedicated for exercise equipment was originally intended to be an extension of the master bedroom closet. During the framing of that portion of the house, the Sladeks felt they had ample closet space to comfortably hold their golf and summer clothes, so the remaining space was changed on the fly into what is now a perfectly sized and situated fitness studio that is easily accessible off of the master suite, and if you didn’t know any better, would insist was part of the original plan. One more example of a decision based on feel is that of the final size and shape of the great room fireplace, which boasts a massive 6’ berth and a floor-level hearth. Dick wanted the television to fit above it, but after the fireplace was roughed-in, he felt it was too small for the space and too high off the floor, making for uncomfortable viewing. So rather than compromise and move the television to a different location, he instead lowered and widened the fireplace altogether. The result is a very distinctive feature that has become the signature of the great room and the heartbeat of the home. Sandy says her favorite thing about the home is the overall layout. In her words, “it’s what makes it all come together. The open and flowing plan. The easy access from kitchen to the grilling deck and outdoor living room. The main floor master suite so we don’t have to go up and down any stairs. We even have his and her‘s offices.” To that point, all rooms necessary for comfortable living are on the main floor, including laundry. But when guests are in town, the large lower level is set up to be a fully self-contained 3 bedroom living area, complete with kitchenette, bar, wine cellar, family room, covered patios and separate laundry. The lower level ceilings are 10’ high, offering similarly majestic views of the lake as the floor above. For added entertainment, the lower level has walk-out access to the backyard bocce ball court, which can also double as a putting green for at-home practice sessions when needed. Now the Sladeks are entering a new season in life, and have made the difficult decision to put their Black Rock home on the market. Dick summed it up simply by saying, “it’s just time.” With kids and grandkids involved in so many activities far from North Idaho, and a new business venture focused elsewhere, they have found it increasingly difficult to carve out the time to make it back to Coeur d’Alene each summer. And like their philosophy on the design of the home, so too is their philosophy on the path this life takes... While something may not be in the original plans, if it just feels right, do it anyway.

BLACK ROCK, IDAHO | A Transcendent Luxury Lifestyle Amid snow-capped peaks under azure skies sits the tranquil “panhandle” of Northern Idaho—widely known for its fresh mountain air and natural beauty. Located within an hour of an international airport, and perched perfectly at the crossroads of Interstate 90 and US Highway 95, it’s the ideal jumping off point from which to explore the wild west. But with an unlimited supply of year-round recreation opportunities, including hiking, biking, boating and skiing, and with 5 ski mountains, 25 golf courses, and 50 lakes within a 50 mile radius of downtown Coeur d’Alene, you may never want to leave. Dispersed throughout the region is a handful of premium gated neighborhoods, each with its own list of unique features and benefits. For some, careful consideration is given to the land and the location upon which they’re built. Light. Air. Water. Trees. Privacy. View. Community. For only a special few, a neighborhood is built to provide Opportunity. An opportunity for two things—to give you roots and give you wings. Of those premium gated neighborhoods in the region, one in particular simply SOARS above the rest... The Golf Club at Black Rock, which offers a truly WORLD CLASS LUXURY LIFESTYLE.

Dictionary.com defines LUXURY as “a refinement of living rather than a necessity; a pleasure out of the ordinary allowed to oneself,” and LIFESTYLE as “the habits, attitudes, tastes, moral standards and economic level that together constitute the mode of living for a group.” At Black Rock, that’s precisely what you’ll discover: An extraordinarily refined living experience shared with like-minded friends. As a golf professional in my previous career, I’ve had the opportunity to work at a few of the finest facilities in the country, including Black Rock. And now, as a member of Black Rock, my unique experience from starting out on the other side of the counter(s) has given me the perspective to realize that this really is a special place. It’s not just marketing fluff. There’s a warm and welcoming demeanor that permeates the property which I’ve discovered doesn’t exist at other clubs. It’s a pervasive culture of inclusion—an overwhelming attitude adjustment that requires you to park your ego and your troubles at the door and invites you to come enjoy life to the fullest. It’s a place where you can let your hair down, untuck your shirt if you like, and even play the golf course backwards on occasion (see: The Whiskey Run). So, if Black Rock really is different from other places, it begs the question WHY? What are the specific characteristics that make Black Rock such a unique community, offering a truly transcendent luxury lifestyle? If you ask me, I think it comes down to four Cs: CLUB, CULTURE, CONSTRUCTION and CLIMATE.

CLUB When people think of The Golf Club at Black Rock, the first thing that comes to mind is world-class private golf. And rightfully so. Course architect (and Black Rock member) Jim Engh has crafted 18 completely unique holes that take you on a journey through wooded forests, across prairies and wetlands, around natural ledges, beneath towering waterfalls and past the basalt rock formations for which Black Rock gets its name. As a former pro and hopeless golf enthusiast, I’ve been lucky enough to play all over the planet. I can say that in all honesty I’ve never played another course that offers the stunning vistas and exciting shots that are almost commonplace at Black Rock. I like to think I have a pretty good grasp of the English language, and would prefer to use a more sophisticated word to describe the experience here... but it’s just more FUN to play Black Rock than anywhere I’ve ever been. Yes, Black Rock has won some awards and earned some pretty elite distinctions, but that’s not what makes me enjoy the course so much. I’d still love it even if the experts didn’t say so. Engh describes his design philosophy for the course as using “trap doors and hidden staircases” to make each hole a unique challenge. Each round offers the opportunity to use every club in the bag, and depending on the hole location, the tee box of choice or the direction of the wind, each hole might play drastically different day in and day out. There’s a playfulness to the course, especially the green complexes, that makes each round entertaining, even when my score is lousy. But the clubhouse is equally as dramatic as the course. From the grand front entry, the private wine room, the well-appointed fitness center, or the open-air four-sided pool bar which is the hub of all summer social gatherings, there is no detail left to chance. Eric Hedlund (also a member at Black Rock), with his distinctive style and experience with golf clubhouse design, has selected every detail with an ample use of native materials, giving the feel of a grand lodge and unpretentious luxury. The quality of the club has a distinctly human element too. There’s a saying in the private club business that the true measure of the quality of a club is evidenced by the longevity of the staff. Off the top of my head, I can think of a dozen or so employees in key positions who have been at Black Rock from the very beginning (Black Rock first opened its doors in 2003), ranging from grounds crew to wait staff to club management. With this level of continuity, both staff and members alike become personally invested in one another. This is a critical component to life at a quality Club—and instead of the staff feeling as though they are “working for” the membership, if feels instead as though they are “partnering with” the membership in achieving the ideal luxury lifestyle and maximum enjoyment of the amenities.

CULTURE Black Rock is an ideal environment to make fast friends. But what I’ve noticed that’s especially rewarding is when fast friends become best friends—when summer friendships at Black Rock extend beyond the parameters of the property to the members’ off-season home, course or club. It seems that all meaningful relationships are forged through common experiences, and we’re innately drawn closer to those with whom they’re shared. The palpable camaraderie and the intangible connections that are unique to a specific time and place will only endure if born out of authenticity—and just those types of authentic friendships are found in abundance at Black Rock. Outside of the immediate area, which accounts for roughly 30% of the current membership, the bulk of the remaining members come from a few common geographic locations: Palm Springs, Scottsdale, Dallas and Naples, FL. But that’s not to say there aren’t folks from just about every other part of the country too. The membership is rounded out by families from the Midwest, back east, and even foreign lands. The membership tends to grow based on the unintentional recruiting efforts of our own members. It’s easy to invite friends to the Club and know the experience will exceed their expectations. Whether a round of golf, or a fine meal in the dining room, or to participate in any number of the many guest-friendly club events. It’s not uncommon for the guest of a member one month to become a new member the next. And because the cost of joining is so low compared to other clubs of similar caliber, it’s easy to enthusiastically recommend to family and friends that they do the same.

CONSTRUCTION The quality of construction within the gates perfectly compliments the course, the clubhouse, and the rest of the amenities on site, and adds to the overall experience that makes life at Black Rock so good. Cedar siding with stone accents. Granite and hardwood interiors. An open floorplan built for entertaining. Spacious outdoor areas. Timeless designs built to fit the terrain and showcase an inevitable view. The design requirements in place accomplish their object—to protect the integrity of the development and to enhance its overall aesthetic. Certainly, these design guidelines require the use of many of the same materials, but the way in which these materials are ultimately put together can be as varied as night and day, adding the critical flavor and flair that make a good neighborhood great. North Idaho is known for our world-class builders and architects, and some of their work is on full display as you drive the neighborhood streets at Black Rock. The homes on property are as varied as the golf holes on the course, and range in size/shape from the turn-key 1441 ft² two-bedroom golf cottages which surround the Himalayan style putting green, to custom estates with private gated drives that showcase grand panoramic views of one of “America’s Most Beautiful Lakes,” per National Geographic. Stylistically, tastes range from rustic log framed lodges to the more contemporary flavored “Phase 2” townhouses that are currently under construction. Or, for many who may have the appetite to design and create, there’s an abundant supply of available vacant land building sites. At Black Rock, there’s something to suit just about any taste or budget. 48 | NORTH IDAHO LUXURY LIFESTYLE

CLIMATE North Idaho is blessed with four distinct seasons. Snowy mountains for winter skiing and warm sunny days in the summer to spend time boating on our famously beautiful lakes. In between, you’ll find the transformation from season to season to be some of the best times of all... watching the golden leaves of autumn falling or the beauty of spring as the blooms unfold in an explosion of color. Associated with the weather are a couple other benefits of our geographic location that might not be as easily identified as the changing of the seasons, or empirically calculated per the bulleted data below. Our elevation at 2600 ft above sea level is ideal for comfortable sleeping and cool summer nights. The water temperature of the lake reaches 70 degrees during the summer months, which is absolutely perfect for swimming and other water sports. And our latitude makes for long summer days. In fact, it stays light enough to play golf until 9p or later in the middle of summer. YEARLY CLIMATE AVERAGES— • Precipitation: 16.7 inches • Snowfall: 48.8 inches • Wind: 8.9 mph (mean speed) • Relative humidity: Morning-78%, Afternoon-52% • Days with temperature over 90˚: 29 • Days with temperature under 32˚: 24 • Hours of sunlight, most (June 20): 16:02 hrs • Hours of sunlight, least (Dec 21): 8:24 hrs

CHOOSE BLACK ROCK Black Rock is a special place, where world-class golf and luxury living artfully collide. It’s an ideal environment for creating family memories and making new friends. To fully appreciate it, you need to experience it for yourself. You’ll find the air is better here... and quite possibly, everything else.
