Location: Seward, Alaska
For a true off-grid escape, consider this Alaskan modern cabin, which you can only get to by air or water. The picturesque 910-square-foot dwelling sits high on five acres of forest with 560 feet of ocean frontage and access to an abundance of wildlife, including moose, goats, fish, plus the occasional whale sighting.
The house, originally built in 1985 and updated in 2013, is rather adorable itself, offering an open kitchen, wood-burning stove, lofted living area, and bedroom behind sliding doors. The property also includes electric and propane lighting, water and septic systems, and a 7.5 Lister diesel generator for easy remote living.
In 2016, the owner slashed the asking price from $370,000 to $269,000, then again recently to $249,000, and will consider a packaged deal with a 1998 24’ Osprey boat, Calkins trailer, and 2008 Ford F-250. Intrigued? The exact location of the property will be disclosed to serious buyers only.
