We live in interesting times—Idaho is now a hot spot for mansions.
Just a month after we crowned a $27 million mansion as the state’s most expensive home, a pricier lakefront mansion has splashed down on the market.
Listed for $30 million, Idaho’s new most expensive home is a sprawling estate on Windy Bay Road in Worley, ID, that sits on Lake Coeur d’Alene. It’s located about 15 miles south of the previous title holder.
Known as Skypine, this megamillion-dollar mansion took the title from the mansion dubbed Copper Rock Estate. Copper Rock went up for sale a little over a month ago, with a list price of $27 million.
Skypine, built in 2011, sits on 27 manicured acres and offers 16,620 square feet of luxurious living space. A large manmade waterfall is a focal point, and there’s 870 feet of lake frontage, much of it sandy.
Most of the home’s rooms have lakefront views, and each of the four bedrooms has an en suite bathroom.
The master bedroom is in its own wing and has an open and airy feeling, with access to paved outdoor living space. That wing also features an office and exercise room.
The master bathroom is enormous and features two large vanities and a soaking tub with a lake view. The closet also offers an abundance of space.
The main living spaces feature high ceilings, lots of windows, and wooden beams. There are several fireplaces, media rooms, and stone corridors to wander through. A large game room provides plenty of indoor entertaining space.
Outdoors, a 2,400-square-foot boathouse is designed to protect all manner of water toys. Eight watercraft are part of the sale price, including several personal watercraft, a pontoon boat, and a 34-foot StanCraft.
StanCraft is an Idaho-based boat-making company that was established in 1933. The company builds custom wooden boats that cost several hundred thousand dollars.
The sale price also includes two aircraft hangars at the Coeur d’Alene Airport that include space for aircraft, an office, and lounging areas.
A helipad on the lakefront property offers no-fuss access from the airport to the estate.
Once past the security gates, the driveway to the house is a half-mile and is all finished with pavers. There’s a two-car attached garage.
Public records show that the owner is Ron Pratte, once a famous car collector. Throughout the house, you can see signs that the owner loves cars.
Pratte, who lives near Phoenix, made his fortune as the founder and CEO of Pratte Development Company, a wood framing and concrete foundation company. He eventually sold his company to Pulte Homes.
The wealthy collector had a car museum in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, AZ, to display his collection. In 2015, Pratte sold his entire collection of more than 100 cars and other items for over $40 million.
Published reports say Pratte now collects planes and other aircraft.
