Property Description

RARE Opportunity: Own the Alaska Guardhouse located in the prestigious Fort William H. Seward, a nationally registered historical landmark in Haines, Alaska! Fort Seward was the 1st permanent US army post built in Alaska. When the Fort was in operation the Guardhouse served as the jail with 4 cells and offices for the military police.

This house was completed in 1904, but has been completely renovated by the same family that has owned it for over 50 years. The renovation kept the flavor of the original historical architecture but upgraded it with modern conveniences. The glassed-in sun porch makes a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee, basking in the warm sun-filled room overlooking the main military square with historical buildings. The expansive living room with views of Lynn Canal and the mountains beyond is where you can play board games, enjoy the log fire, or just visit with friends, old and new. The sunny back deck is where you can enjoy an afternoon cocktail with fantastic views of the Chilkat Mountain Range, Lynn Canal, or the community of Haines. It is also a perfect spot to grill up your daily catch of salmon or enjoy an evening by the firepit telling stories. The main floor includes living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedroom suites and one bedroom. In the third floor, the skylights are the perfect spot to observe the Northern Lights from the master bedroom suite! It is the size of most apartments and includes a wetbar, soaking tub, office space, library and 2 walk-in closets. The basement includes a full apartment with a private bath plus the laundry room, furnace and storage room. This house has been meticulously maintained and is currently being operated as a vacation rental. This property is perfect for a large family or a multi-generational family living situation as it has retained the comfortable homey feeling. Local zoning would permit a commercial business which makes it a very versatile property. It is centrally located only 4 blocks from downtown Haines and 2 blocks from the waterfront. The location is perfect to walk to the Chilkat Center for the Arts, Bald Eagle Foundation, Port Chilkoot Distillery, gift shops, restaurants, the small boat harbor or Main Street. Fort Seward is a destination. Originally designed as a military base to protect Alaska, Fort Seward has transformed into an iconic and cherished landmark. The buildings overlook the Lynn Canal and are framed by the Chilkat Mountain Range creating order and symmetry in the Alaskan Wilderness. Due to its unique attributes, the Fort has evolved into a gathering place for events, activities, conferences, weddings and more. As diverse as these experiences may be, there is a common thread – the joy of making meaningful connections in a magnificent natural setting. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy into this Historic Landmark Property!
