Property description

This comfortable residence is privately nestled near the water’s edge on approximately 150’ of medium-low bank frontage with easy access to the rocky beach, below.

The 2650 square foot home envelops you with charm and dignity, featuring warm woods, exceptional cabinetry, a gourmet kitchen, a stone fireplace, a new hot tub with sweeping views of San Juan and President Channels, and an exquisite master bedroom and bath. Picture windows frame expansive views of the Channels as well as Orcas, Spieden, Stuart, and Flattop Islands. Large patio decks welcome comfortable and private outdoor entertaining. The cozy living room, with a wood-burning fireplace, adjoins the cooking and eating areas, creating a pleasant and welcoming place for you to visit and share a relaxing respite in the islands.

This lovely property is also an ideal location for weddings and other events for its close proximity to Roche Harbor Resort; the house is located just a few miles up the road from the resort’s spa, pool, dining, theater and boating facilities.

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Owner Profile: My family and I have been enjoying the San Juan Islands for many years. The sailing is fabulous with many windy days year-round and so many little islands and coves to explore. The food and the local wines are a delight, with so many options and variations. We love to take our bikes and visit the different islands for the day, but it's always a treat to come home to the sound of the tide moving and lapping on the rocks on our beach and a soak in the hot-tub. We work and live in Seattle but I moved here from Philadelphia, intending to stay just a year before heading back. But now, 20 years later, I have made my home here in the Pacific Northwest and our children attend a Waldorf school in Seattle. But we come up to the islands as often as possible, especially in the summer, for rest and family-time together.

Why Roche Harbor:
San Juan Island is so close to many urban centers and yet it is a delightful, rural escape, and very easy get to. It is a peaceful contrast to the busy life in the city. And our house is a wonderful place to enjoy the nature and idyllic quiet of this gorgeous island. It is a lovely spot for family and friends to relax and rejuvenate. There are plenty of hikes and dramatic beaches to walk along; the kayaking and wildlife-watching is great and the sailing is world-famous.
