Friday Harbor house description

Lovely hand built log home nestled on 5 acres of rolling lawns and gardens, surrounded by pine forest.

Wildlife abounds with cranes, fox and deer. Watch the ducks swimming on the lake. Awaken to the sounds of song birds and bald eagles. Our home is protected from wind and weather by large stands of old growth fir and pine trees. You are assured complete privacy while you unwind and relax on the front porch in old oak rocking chairs or the old thrift store 1950's chair.

The living room is furnished tastefully with antiques dating back to the Alaska Gold Rush era. Overstuffed furniture awaits you and a good book. The kitchen is complete with everything you will need, including condiments, spices and the basic items found in every frig. There is an outdoor charcoal grill and cedar picnic table for your outdoor dining experience.

                          The property is located within minutes of South Beach, a long driftwood,sandy beach with a view of Cattle Point Light house and across the Straits to Victoria, B.C. and Port Angeles. Sunsets and whale watching are a 12 minute drive to the West Side. Town is easily accessible for a quick trip to San Juan Bakery for fresh island bread (Mullis Road near the airport).

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1983

                          About the owner: This is my personal family home, where I raised my 2 daughters. I then completely updated the whole house to give it a fresh new feeling. The logs that were used to build my home were cut on the property. I have created my gardens and pond over 30 years and continue to add more each year

                          Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
                          I moved my family to Friday Harbor to enjoy the island lifestyle. We love having the ocean close by and all the wonderful beaches, especially South Beach, and the West side for Orca watching.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The property is completely protected from the ocean winds and has total privacy in all the yard space. You cannot see another home from any of the windows in my home,only forest, flowers and pond. Each of my neighbors has 5 acres or more of property so it is a very quiet and peaceful setting.
