This country estate and seaside oasis blend tastefully for gracious island living. Ponds, orchard, wildflower meadow and multiple gardens add sensual delight. As you pass through the gated entry, follow the curving drive to be delighted by two romantic cottages, barn and orchard and an English potting shed. The timeless and artful design of this home and guest suite has a calming and serene effect. This rare find on 220+/- ft of waterfront is prefect for use as a B&B, retreat or compound.
There are many structures and outdoor “rooms” on the property, each with their own unique personality and style. Here is a quick overview.
The Main House: This 4 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath waterfront home is sited perfectly to capture views through Saratoga Passage, Camano Island, Mt. Baker and beyond. Summer sunsets extend entertaining long into the evening. Bring the outdoors in on the expansive sun room for morning coffee. This open floor plan gives flexibility in living and dining. Featuring dual master bedrooms on the main floor and upper level both with generous master baths. The 2 additional bedrooms, one of which is a perfect bunk room, are on the upper level, as is a large office-library with lovely garden views.
The Guest Suite: Attached to the main house is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath waterfront suite that features a large open kitchen and dining area with endless water views, a comfortable living room with fireplace. Enjoy a second floor master bedroom with large view windows and skylights. Relax on the deck while watching migrating whales in spring.
The Lodge: This quintessential guest quarters features a loft bedroom, bath, large living room with river rock fireplace and a full kitchen. Enjoy star gazing from the private hot tub, or curl up and read a book in the window seat. One-of-a-kind custom accents add to the legacy and uniqueness of this heritage home.
The Studio: We saved the studio as a pleasant surprise. This lovely bungalow sits alongside the perennial garden and potting shed and is a sweet escape. Romantic, cozy and lovingly restored, this tastefully designed gem will steal your heart, nourish your soul and help you discover a quieter, more simple place.
The Potting Shed: Featured in Country Living magazine, this cute potting shed is surrounded by mature, well established, sun loving perennial gardens. The stylish design and practical layout will provide your inner gardener with the ideal spot to retreat, putter and relax.
The Barn: The 600 +/- square foot barn is located midway on the property and provides a convenient location for all of your equipment. The covered porch is a delightful place to take a break, enjoy the birdsong and contemplate the meaning of life. Well maybe that’s a bit much for a barn, but you get the idea. There is also a finished storage room.
Natural Habitat Ponds are part of the Backyard Wildlife Habitat and home to Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, resident Mallards and numerous bird species. Monet would have been delighted, and so will you.
The Wildflower Meadow is home to flowering perennials brought to life by butterflies and hummingbirds.
The Orchard includes many fruit trees to include Rainier cherry, apple, pear and plum.
