The home has a open floor plan.

The second bathroom may be entered from the second bedrrom or from the kitchen area.

I work but I'm around to help you with questions as you need.
I live in basement apartment in the house. I can not see into any windows or onto your private patio so your privacy is assured.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I found Orcas Island,WA. in 1990. I had never been to Washington State, let alone the San Juan Islands. I knew I had found home with in 15 minutes of driving off the ferry. This place feeds my artistic spirit and creative side. I have worked toward my goal of buying property on Orcas Island and building my own place since then. I started building in 2003. I was my own General Manager of this project. The professionals put in the parts that are controlled by building requirements to met code, like power, water, framing the house, etc. After that is when the hands on part of the job was all mine. I put in all the slate flooring, wood trim, siding, painting, cupboards, sinks, tubs, slate shower hall, stone patio, etc. I could write a book with all that took place. The house turned out lovely, if I do say so myself, and you can't beat the views. I have not had one negative piece of feed-back about the house since I started renting it. I want you to enjoy this piece of paradise as much as I do. Thank you for your interest. Donna Delong Delongview

Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
This Island offered the clean air and lush green landscape that has always been important to my comfort in a place. I need tall trees, natural settings, wild animals and birds as part of my daily life. The ocean being near-by and viewable daily, around nearly every corner I turn or hill I drive over, is a blessing I don't take for-granted. The views of the awesome mountains were a plus, and now I can't think of life without them to gaze at. The fact that there are no traffic jambs or stop lights have to be listed as a plus too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and serenity you feel sitting on the patio with the sight of the Cascade Mountains and the Georgia Strait right there. Flowers blooming all around and birds to watch as their songs fill the air. The quiet of living on a 3 acre piece of paradise, on a private road, with no through traffic or city noises. Not another house in sight. If the weather is overcast or if it has snowed and all is covered, it still feels bright in the Great Room, due to the huge ski-lite over the peak of the roof. The heated slate floors with rich, bold colors feel warm to my bare feet in the winter, and cool when I take feet out of my hot shoes in the summer. So many things like this are what makes my home special to me, and to you too if you want.
