Most Idaho estates I've featured have a bit of a log cabin look so this contemporary home on the Spokane River in Post Falls, Idaho brought me up short. It's the kind of angular, marble-laden contemporary that you would usually find in Miami. This home is on around ten acres of property with 420 feet of river frontage. The modern creation is around 8,500 square feet and has a huge open two-story entrance that includes double staircases to the second level. The large open space on the main floor is dominated by lighting fixtures hanging down from the ceiling and a 15-foot glass waterfall fixture above the marble hearth of the gas fireplace. The second level offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main floor has the master suite plus another bedroom/office. The lower level "daylight" basement has another bedroom, rec. room and kitchen. Outside there is a infinity-edged pool and outdoor kitchen and a cabana with bed, bath and kitchen. In addition there are also two three-car garages and a three-bedroom guest house. This home is listed at $8.5 million.
