Shea Villa

· Waterfront · For Rent

Shea Villa unites contemporary design on a magnificent, flat waterfront lot on Murphy Bay. This exceptional home is just 3 miles from Sandpoint and has 6 large bedrooms, private dock, boat lift, hot tub, fire pit, & gourmet kitchen.

[expand title=”More…” swaptitle=”Close”] Shea Villa is a stunning, one-of-a-kind, waterfront estate. This 6 bedroom, 5+ bath, 7,800 square foot villa is ideal for family reunions, luxury lake vacations, “milestone” birthdays or anniversary, and weekend getaways.

Located on pristine Murphy Bay, just 3 miles from Sandpoint, Shea Villa resides on 2 acres of native cedar and pine trees, carpeted by flat and expansive green grass to 156’ of private, Lake Pend Oreille waterfront.

Carve pro-like turns while waterskiing or wake boarding the glassy surface of Murphy Bay. Fish for rainbow trout off the dock or revel in the solace and creativity as you watch the children build sand castles, swim in the warm water and just embrace being outside all day long. Grill chef’s preparations on the elaborate barbeque – or take the night off and travel by boat to dinner. The charming town of Sandpoint is just minutes away. Return home to the wood-burning fire pit and devour s’mores as you search the night sky for shooting stars.

Schweitzer Mountain is just 12 miles away and is extraordinary for its large terrain and tree skiing. A wide variety of sports and activities are enjoyed here: cross country ski, snow shoe, hike, canoe, kayak, horseback riding and more! Afterwards soak, recount and relax in the huge hot tub which bestows spectacular views of Schweitzer and the lake itself.

Shea Villa will delight the passionate parishioners of modern architecture and interior design devotees. Imagine a tranquil, cedar tree lined driveway. A colonnade entrance beckons you — beginning an uncommon vacation experience that unites nature’s external beauty to avant-garde modernism. Upon entry you are greeted by a sweeping, spiral staircase that is awe-inspiring in its helical structure.

Designed by renowned architect Ron Tan, with professional interior design by John Rovtar, the open floor plan is capacious, elegant, and inviting. Mr. Tan’s influence of Chinese architecture creates interior rooms of balance and symmetry, while an extensive use of vertical glass connects you to the breathtaking views of the lake and mountains outside. Enjoy quiet conversations around the fireplace in the living room or watch your favorite sport or movie in the family area. Celebrate that special birthday or anniversary in the opulent dining room, with custom hutch and sparkling glassware sets.

Next to the family area, a large sunken bar replete with pony keg tap is perfect for evening cocktails and entertaining. A Brunswick billiards table leads to an 8 ball challenge and game night is made easy. (A wide variety of board games are provided).

Great homes have great kitchens and Shea Villa is no exception. This epicurean kitchen will delight and gratify the serious cook with its 4 foot long Viking range, double ovens, and warming drawers. Plentiful and gorgeous, granite counter tops provide ample work space for the sous chef and wannabes. Custom cherry cabinetry, slate floors, large stainless sink with Instant hot tap, professional appliances, bake ware and kitchen staples complete this incredible kitchen. An enormous “butler’s pantry”, behind the main kitchen, provides a separate area for the clean-up crew, as well as abundant areas for storage.

Follow the long quiet hallway to enter the master bedroom suite that truly encapsulates artful design with luxury. A large, elevated fireplace can be enjoyed in the immense King bed or elongated sitting area. Panoramic lake views come from the tall, custom windows and a private patio door allows for easy access outside. Pamper yourself in the master bathroom: sunken, jetted tub, large shower, double sinks, his and her closets, and bidet are just some of the amenities.

Even on vacation, work duties may beckon. Dual, private offices, with secured high-speed WiFi allow privacy and focus when needed. Each office faces the lake, providing beauty and serenity for clear thinking.

Originally designed as a family retreat, 5 Guest Suites are located upstairs. Climb the sweeping, wide, spiral staircase to reach private and complete sleeping and bath areas. The best family vacations provide enough room to celebrate time together, while allowing quiet and restorative time apart. 4 Guest bedroom suites are nearly identical with a Queen bed, vanity with sink, TV and custom ‘California’ closets. 2 stunning, full bathrooms service these bedrooms. The 5th Guest room or Family Suite provides 4 twin beds, in a large living space with table, couch and a full bathroom — perfect for kids, cousins or additional family and friends.

Summers in Sandpoint finds everyone outside. In addition to the large patio and outdoor kitchen, a variety of chaises, tables and chairs provide the ultimate in comfort and amenities for alfresco living. The large flat lawn is perfect for volleyball, badminton or croquet. A hidden tree house is a secret discovery for little ones.

Shea Villa is unique in size, design, privacy and amenities. However it is not an event venue, so please no wedding or large reception requests.
