Spirit Lake East Subdivision is nestled in the forest between both Spirit Lake and Athol off of the Main Hwy of Hwy 54. This is a subdivision of nice homes to upscale homes all on 10-12 acre lots. It’s a quiet private community with no shooting, lots of forest and not a ton of agriculture. You are allowed to have livestock and horses in their but it is limited. You will not see this subdivision getting ran down. This area is full of wildlife, deer, moose and the gamete of smaller creatures. Most of the homes boast cathedral ceilings, great views and some nice upgrades like granite counters etc. Shops are the norm for most of the homes and some even boast a mother in law cabin or guest house.
Water is provided by a community system that everyone pays into. It keeps the water cost down and reasonable. Most people in there say there water bill runs about $25 per month up to about $50 per month in the summer. Houses are all on their own septic system.
The road system is maintained by the subdivision. It is part of what your $217 per year home owners association pays for. For more information on the subdivision visit Spirit Lake Subdivision. The road is gravel but is usually in good condition does have a few pot holes and will be muddy in the spring but I have always been able to get my little car in and out of there even in the winter.
They do a good job of keeping it plowed. I think most folks in there do drive some form of an suv or something a little bigger then my car but that is also common to the area as there is a lot of wildlife and if you have to hit something big like a moose you really want to survive it.
The houses in their range from about 1800 sq ft up to 4000+ sq ft. Prices range from about the $250k range all the way up into the 600-700k range. Depending on the Estate. Most of the home owners are either professional people or are retired. Spirit Lake East is about 5-10 minutes from the town of Spirit Lake. Spirit Lake is a small town with just a couple of gas stations a full-scale (on the smaller side) grocery store, a hardware store and the post office. There are a couple of bars and a couple of small eating establishments also. Great food up at Annie’s. Recreation is close as the town borders the lake.
Your also about 10-15 minutes away from Bayview and Lake Pend Orielle right down Hwy 54. One of the largest inland lakes in the United States. Drop your boat into the water and you are off for the day to many destinations including Sandpoint and the gorgeous wonders of that lake.
Depending on where you work. Spirit Lake East is also about 25-30 minutes from the Town of Coeur d Alene, Hayden and the Interstate. Depending on which side of Spirit Lake East you live on most either cut across and down on Ramsey or Diagonal road and catch Hwy 95 over off Brunner by Silverwood Theme Park. It is now a 65 mph 2 lane hwy and has really cut the commute time down dramatically. If you go the back way and go down Hwy 41 you will run into Rathdrum in about 15 minutes or less and then you are about 20 minutes to Spokane Valley and all the shopping at the Valley Mall. Cutting across on Mission you can get to the downtown area fairly easily or take the back way up Bigelow Gulch and you can be to the North Side of Spokane quite quickly also. If you need specifics of how to do that contact me and i am more than happy to share some of the short cuts.
