Call Advantage Real Estate, 307-745-1570, to see this truly unique home. If your most-fondest-wish-list includes a cozy custom log home with spectacular views in every direction and the finest in craftsmanship throughout, you'll instantly feel at ease in this spacious property built near Centennial, Wyoming in 1992 by Deerwood Log Homes. Massive logs have been lovingly shaped and joined to create a space that's both expansive and light-filled yet amazingly private and personal. The great room, dining area and gourmet kitchen join at the center of the main level while a main-floor master suite is located off the living area. Another bedroom and bath (which could also be an additional master suite) open from a private hallway nearby. As you look upward to the second level, you'll see a library loft lined with book shelves and an office area which overlooks the great room. Two more bedrooms and a full bath also share this level. But there's more! A large, light-filled space on the lower level provides areas for media, a game room, hobby or storage. And just outside, on the southern side of the home, is a large cabana, suitable for quiet meals or relaxed entertaining. Home is partially heated by an underground geothermal system and also has a propane furnace. The geothermal system, which provides heating and cooling to 3 of the 4 heating zones in the house is a Waterfurnace ground sourced heat pump system. This extracts heat from the ground using water circulated in pipes going down to a depth of 750 ft, boosts the temperature using a heat pump and supplies it to the forced air system in the house. (On an historical note, this lovely custom home was extensively remodeled by Annie Proulx, author of Postcards, The Shipping News and Brokeback Mountain when she owned it.)
