Adam Shankman lists his underused retreat in Idaho at $737,000

Adam Shankman, the affable judge from “So You Think You Can Dance,” has listed his family retreat for sale in Priest River, Idaho, at $737,000.

The mountain and water view property is near Sandpoint in the northern part of the state known as the Idaho Panhandle.

The gated hideaway encompasses 3.32 acres on the Pend Oreille River with a sandy swimming beach and a large dock with room for a ski boat and kayaks.

Wooden wrap-around decks encircle the rustic-style timber-frame house, which has a stone fireplace, balconies, three bedrooms, a den/office, three bathrooms and a separate hot tub deck. 

In addition to the two-story house, which was built in the 1990s and remodeled in 2006, there is a separate workshop/barn and a covered area for maintenance equipment such as a truck, a tractor and lawn mowers.

The grounds include mature aspen, pine and maple trees. Skiing, hiking and mountain biking trails are nearby.

Shankman, 49, also has appeared as a dancer in music videos for Paula Abdul and Janet Jackson, has worked as a choreographer and has produced films, including “Hairspray” (2007) and “Rock of Ages” (2012).

He bought the property in 2002 as a place to share with his family. They have spent birthdays, holidays and vacations there. He is now selling because the retreat sits unused much of the year due to his work schedule.

Tom Puckett of Century 21 Riverstone Real Estate in Sandpoint, Idaho, is the listing agent.
