Eastsound house description

A quiet and roomy get away for two or more the Bird House is pet, family and couple friendly.

You are just a short walk to Cresent Beach to see the wild life or rent a kayak for a peaceful paddle. Fifteen minutes of walking and you're in 'down town' Eastsound. You can get to Orcas Center for top notch entertainment, the Farmer's Market, Seaview movie theater, the grocery store or a wonderful selection of restaurants or shops in no time. It's only a 5 minute walk to the convenience store and a short drive to Moran State Park. There's a new Land Bank walking trail just around the corner.

The large, fenced yard with seasonal flowers for cutting invites you out of doors to enjoy the view of East Sound, BBQ or play games on the lawn. Kids and dogs love to explore safely outside.

The roomy living/dining room area looks over the front garden and off to the waters of East Sound and is a great area to visit and play games.

The large kitchen opens to the family room with its cozy propane fireplace where you enjoy reading, listening to music or watching movies.

The king bed room looks out to the back yard and has its own large full bathroom. The queen room looks to the side yard and has an attached bath with step in shower.

The Bird House is a comfortable, centrally located place to NEST while exploring the many wonderful activities and areas on Orcas Island.

              Beach access to Crescent Beach with nearby kayak rental within easy walking distance. Orcas Island has Magic One, a great bi-plane ride opportunity at the nearby airport.

              Orcas has one of the best skateboard parks on the west coast and it's free. A new walking path has just been created just adjacent to the house for more walking options.

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Megan grew up on Orcas Island and met Josh here. We now have two beautiful boys we are raising on the island.

              Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
              Orcas Island is a beautiful, rehabilitating destination with options for an active or relaxing vacation. It's a charming community with great food, wonderful walking trails, swimming in lovely lakes, kayaking or sailing, entertainment at the Orcas Center and other venues and darling shops.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The Bird House is within walking distance to town and has a beautiful, flower filled yard in season. The home is roomy, yet cozy and has indoor and outdoor living. The large fence yard is wonderful for children and pets to explore in a safe environment.
