About 8690 E Highlands Circle

This gorgeous home, newly renovated in 2016, sits on 5 secluded acres right outside of Palmer. Conveniently located off of Trunk and Palmer-Wasilla Highway, this home offers a great commuter location and easy access to Palmer and Wasilla, only 3 miles from MatSu Regional Hospital. This large home was built in 2001 and was fully remodeled in 2016 with all updated craftsman features. Nestled behindthe trees, the landscaped backyard ends just short of a hill leading towards useable acreage, for horses, goats or a mother in law apartment or rental space. In addition to the two car garage, there is space for RV parking, including a second driveway and the perfect building space for a detached garage. The custom kitchen and bathrooms feature matching concrete countertops with unique sinks and stylish roughed edges over clean white shaker cabinets. The walk out basement is mostly finished, ready for the flooring of your choice and offers a bedroom; bathroom with a shower and jetted tub; as well as a large entertainment room, storage space under the stairs and a utility room! The basement is plumbed and could easily convert to a rental or separate unit. In addition to the 4 good sized bedrooms, there are 3 large living spaces for entertainment including a play room above the garage with built-in storage/forts, a reading nook and a full chalkboard wall. Radiant (in floor) heat keeps the house warm in the cold winters, but there is also a cast iron gas stove fireplace in the living room for those extra cold Alaska nights! The on demand water heater provides endless hot showers and baths in the jetted tub in the basement and the custom waterfall shower in the master. A full back yard with thick new grass was added in the Summer of 2020, along with an Arctic Spa hot tub and wooden playground for the kids. This property boasts beautiful views of Pioneer Peak and two driveways for convenient turn-arounds for big vehicles, including a wired Ring camera security system. This home offers the views and privacy of rural Alaska while enjoying the conveniences of Palmer and Wasilla in an updated, large home offering endless possibilities.
