SilverWing at Sandpoint allows our owners the option to build either a hangar or a hangar-plus-residence on their own lot. Owners can choose to utilize SilverWing-approved vendors for this construction or use their own contractors.
SilverWing at Sandpoint has a perpetual easement for access to the runway and also an approved residential through-the-fence (rTTF) agreement with the airport sponsor, Bonner County, in perpetuity. An rTTF agreement with an airport sponsor on a public airport is an extremely rare attribute to aviation-related residential development as the FAA Air Transportation Modernization & Safety Improvement Act of 2012 declared that no future rTTF agreements will be approved on publicly funded airports, but grandfathered existing agreements; leaving SilverWing as one of the only in the West and few in the entire United States with these valuable and perpetual rights.
Building your aviation home
On each exclusive lot, owners own the land and are allowed the flexibility to build a hangar plus residence, a traditional hangar, or just buy the land and decide later. We have no restrictions on holding the land; all we require is that once the construction has started that it be completed within 18 months.
Owners have the option of utilizing their own contractors to perform the construction or use SilverWing-approved vendors. If SilverWing-approved vendors are chosen, we will construct the hangar and residential shell under an open book pricing allowing owners to design and finish the interior to their own specifications. Alternatively, we can deliver a turnkey unit under the same open book pricing format completing all aspects of the building and furnishing. Traditional hangars can also be built under these parameters. If owners prefer to use their own contractors, building plans will need to be approved by the Architectural Committee prior to construction and then work can commence.
SilverWing is surrounded on three sides with an eight-foot custom manufactured metal fencing for security. A key-coded
entry gate with stone columns restricts access to residents only.
All required approvals and site work have been completed. The development has interior dedicated streets with all entryways, taxiways, tie-down areas, and parking areas completed and paved.
The development is fully engineered, surveyed, compacted, rocked, and ready for slab construction.
A sanitary sewer pump station has been installed at the southwest corner of the property and sanitation is connected to the city system.
Luxury model home
The SilverWing duplex is comprised of a fully-furnished model home adjacent to an unfinished shell unit. The two units both have a 55 x 56 hangar and over 3,000 square feet of residence located directly above.
The model home has four bedrooms, three baths, living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen, nook, laundry, and utility area. It features a stone fireplace, granite counters, wood flooring with radiant heating, oversized doorways, custom cabinetry, stone and tile finishes, and fire sprinkler and automated mechanical systems. Off the living room is a covered deck from which to watch the planes take off and land. Down the stairway of the main entry is a finished hangar like no other—with fire suppression system, sodium lighting, Schweiss bi-fold hangar doors, and half bathroom.
Adjacent is an identical two-story custom hangar home. This unit has not yet been finished on the interior and was designed to provide a similar floor plan, but can be fully cust omized to your liking—both upstairs residences could even be combined for over 6,000 square feet of living area.
