Property description

Panabode 3 bedroom/2 bath all cedar home with high ceilings, large wrap around deck sits on 4.5 acres of waterfront lawn, Cedars and Doug Firs in total privacy. There is also a deep dock and room for mooring. The heater is forced air. The house is cozy in minutes.
Plus there's a separate one bedroom/1 bath/kitchen/ living room cottage available on the property near the edge of the woods. Inquire if desired.
The sunsets from the West facing deck are utterly gorgeous and go on for hours in the summer months. The property is accessible by car, sail or power boat and seaplane and has a deep dock that accommodates a yacht or sailboat. There's power and water on the dock.
A marina is near by (but not too close:) with gas pump, restaurant and marine store --within walking distance. Every bedroom has a spectacular view. The stone fireplace services the living room on one side and goes through to the kitchen on the other. The house has wall to wall wool carpets, classy but comfortable furnishings, The house is 2 levels. And because its all cedar it smells wonderful. No smokers inside these walls. The cookware is all clad and new. All appliances one would expect are at the ready including a cappuccino maker and popcorn maker. Brand new stove top and convection oven + clay pot cooker, gas bar-b-que on the deck and propane provided, of course. There are games for kids and adults and a video library plus all star cable package from Starchoice. We've thought of a lot from excellent wireless broadband to croquet. But your suggestions are always welcome.
Special is an understatement. A Pacific Northwest Paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I was introduced to the island by close friends who live there and bought this pure cedar waterfront panabode house 22 years ago. It was built with loving care and superb taste by a lovely Dutch couple. I am the second owner. This is my soul place but because work takes me away from the island I rent it out sparingly. Everyone who has stayed has appreciated how special this place is.

Why the Owner Chose Galiano Island:
There's nothing like it in all my travels. The house is tongue and groove cedar. No interior walls, Cedar is 8 ' thick and glows. And it smells wonderful. Its like being outside and inside at the same time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house and the cottage sit on 4.5 acres of private, blissful waterfront. And the deck with loungers and dining faces to the west with hours of summer sunsets.
