Over the past decade, Sandpoint has received numerous accolades including Most Beautiful Small Town in America, A Top 10 Dream Town, Picture Perfect Mountain Town and more. A stroll through the charming downtown, a trip up to Schweitzer Mountain and a walk along the water all reveal what residents have known for years—there’s no place like Sandpoint.
For the last 13 years, Dover Bay Development has carefully planned and designed a beautiful place for many to call home just three miles west of Sandpoint in Dover Bay. Now, they have expanded their properties to include a new project—Sandpoint Lofts at Sandpoint Marina. Located at 115 Lake Street in Downtown Sandpoint, the 13-unit vacation rental complex is perfect for those seeking a home away from home.
“We have hit a price point and a size of vacation rental that is not available in town,” said John Sletager, vice president of Dover Bay Development. The lofts are perfectly situated within walking distance of multiple restaurants offering an eclectic choice of food, Sandpoint City Beach, the boardwalk, boat rentals and bike rentals. “There is also boat moorage available for owners of the lofts or those who are renting,” said Marie Garvey, Dover Bay’s director of sales and marketing.
Overlooking beautiful Sandcreek and Lake Pend Oreille, the quaint one- and two-bedroom vacation rentals are located near Sandpoint Marina and provide units at the walkout garden level, mid-level and top-level penthouse.
But it is not just people seeking a vacation home in the summer who are looking to purchase at the Sandpoint Lofts.
“We have a lot of interest from people who want a place they can call home after a day of skiing on the mountain,” said Sletager, who adds that everyone from young couples to retirees have already reserved their loft unit.
The foundation was poured in early November, and while some of the units have already been purchased, there are still some available. “The interior finishes are beautiful and contemporary,” said Garvey of the light carpet and tile that contrast the striking dark cabinetry. “But people still have an opportunity to choose their own finishes or have upgrades if they prefer something different.”
The eight-foot windows provide beautiful views and allow for a lot of natural light, and the heating and cooling systems installed are extremely energy efficient. “Each room can be independently controlled,” said Sletager.
Scheduled for completion in late summer or early fall of 2018, Sandpoint Lofts also offer a covered parking space for one vehicle as well as overflow parking at the Power House for additional vehicles. And while many homeowners associations have high fees, Sandpoint Lofts’ fees are significantly lower than what one will find in comparable locations.
The condo association insurance policy will also cover through the standard finishes of the unit, something you will not find in many condominium associations.
The units range in size from 637 to 990 square feet, and there are also two commercial spots available. There is an elevator, and all units are FHA compliant. If you miss out on purchasing at this building, don’t worry. There are plans underway to construct a second complex at Sandpoint Marina in the near future.
With everything from a secured entry, covered parking, walking distance to the numerous downtown restaurants, shops and City Beach, Sandpoint Lofts at Sandpoint Marina are a perfect solution to the home away from home you’ve desired.
