We crave wild spaces in Alaska. The natural and raw beauty surrounding us compels us to drive, fly, or float miles and miles from civilization to let the magnitude and solitude fill our adventure cups. But in the small community of Girdwood, it’s easy to find balance between community and nature in a space that’s nestled against the Chugach Mountains and boasts world class skiing, hiking, biking, dining and scenery.

If you journey a few miles down Crow Creek Road, however, past the Winner Creek trailhead and mine, you’ll find an even more wild place, with towering peaks, glaciers and abundant wildlife viewing of bear, sheep and moose. Outdoor enthusiasts take full advantage of the area’s microclimate which offers more snow fall for snowmachining and skiing, immediate access to the Crow Pass Trailhead, endless hiking, berry picking and total seclusion. A lucky few people have built houses and made this dreamy backcountry escape their home, curating a lifestyle of balance, sustainability, and efficiency.

Real Alaska living off of Crow Creek Road

The opportunity to own a home in Crow Creek is rare—especially one completely ready to meet the demands of living off the grid. Built in 2002, the custom home currently for sale on Gold Claim Drive features diesel generators, wind and solar power, with redundant systems in place to meet mother nature’s plans with confidence. Beyond the ability to live sustainably, however, this home was designed by well-known Alaska architect Marco Zaccaro and threads the beauty from outside seamlessly into each room and space with natural lighting and custom finishes.

From the third floor balcony, your view is parallel across the mountain tops to the top of the Alyeska Resort tram. Check the weather yourself before hitting the slopes!
A roomy kitchen includes two energy efficient, Danish built Conserv refrigerator/freezer units,  a breakfast bar and plenty of counter space.
With hardwood flooring and an open concept floorplan, the main living space offers plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing with views out every window. 
From this Utility Room you can control most everything in this amazing house: the electric power, wind, solar, radiant floors, hot water and the new energy efficient oil boiler.
This home was designed with plenty of space for multiple hobbies and all your gear.
Let the wild Alaska soundscape lull you to sleep each night.
