It’s the real estate equivalent of a pot of gold.

The Dover Bay Waterfront Community is offering special March pricing on the final five homes slated from the first phase of its Parkside Bungalows neighborhood.

The Parkside style is a contemporary twist on the “cabin in the woods,” set along a private inlet of Lake Pend Oreille. Residents enjoy a private beach and non-motorized boat access to the inlet.

“You can canoe or kayak, and there’s great fishing on the inlet,” said Marie Garvey, director of sales and marketing for Dover Bay.

Parkside Bungalows are only footsteps away from the community’s Marina Village, making it an ideal location as a primary residence, a second home or for the occasional family retreat. The homes also make excellent vacation rentals for those who wish to share the fun with visitors. Each home boasts an impressive kitchen, cozy gas fireplaces, large entertainment decks and modern amenities throughout.

Monthly HOA fees in the immaculately maintained neighborhood are $285/month which includes water, sewer, lawn care and snow plowing.

You can thank the Irish for March’s special pricing on the five remaining Phase One units. Buyers can save thousands on the available homes:

Two “Alberta” models, featuring one bedroom and one bathroom, are available for $179,000. Two “Deerborn” models, featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms, are being offered at $239,000. Finally, the “Greenside” design with a loft family room, three bedrooms and three bathrooms, is priced at $275,000.

Each model includes high-efficiency hot water tanks, gas forced air heating and A/C, a lighted carport and more. The pre-construction homes allow buyers to choose their own finishes as well.

The 274-slip Marina Village is located just outside the neighborhood, complete with fitness center, a heated outdoor swimming pool and spa open year-round, market, summer season restaurant and more. Now is the perfect time to reserve a seasonal slip at the marina, which is optional and open to both residents and non-residents of the Dover Bay Community.

The season’s steady flow of snowfall also means ski season will continue at Schweitzer Mountain Resort until mid-April. For those looking for a late winter/early spring vacation, Dover Bay offers luxurious rental packages with discounted lift tickets. Schweitzer Mountain Resort is just 12 miles from Dover Bay, and the nearby city of Sandpoint offers numerous activities, shopping and dining for visitors and residents.

The Dover Bay Waterfront Community is comprised of several neighborhoods in a variety of home styles and price points. There are more than 9 acres of beaches and gorgeous park areas, as well as 9 miles of walking and bicycle trails. In short, Dover Bay is a true representative of North Idaho paradise.
