Property description

Ideal location to relax and enjoy the Pacific Northwest. Plan a vacation near the water and near the mountains. Close to Canadian border, Mt. Baker, and Bellingham.

House is on saltwater, 30 minutes from Sucia Island and San Juan Islands by boat. Trailer your boat in and put into Puget Sound in local marina 1/4 mile away - the entire Puget Sound coast becomes your playground.

Enjoy the comforts of home. A spacious master bedroom with bath includes large closets, TV, and all linens. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need to prepare meals. The family room is ideal for games, reading, and relaxing.

Outdoors, a gas grill and patio offer a place to enjoy a view of the channel and quiet neighborhood.


The Bellingham Mt. Baker region offers a full range of natural beauty and opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Mt. Baker itself is a short drive from Sandy Point and there you can enjoy skiing, snowmobiling, and hiking.

Several parks and picnic areas are within a short drive. You can walk along the beach at Sandy Point for miles or at any one of the Whatcom County parks and beaches, including Birch Bay State Park and Semiahmoo Parks.

Bike from you Sandy Point home. After a short steep hill out of the neighborhood, you can enjoy miles and miles of country roads and scenery along a relatively flat terrain. Or, stay in Sandy Point with approximately five miles of flat riding.

If night-life is something you are interested in, the City of Bellingham is minutes away. Bellingham is home to Western Washington University, and is a vibrant and active community. The Fairhaven Historic District is a popular tourist attractions, with a variety of antique shops, restaurants, and pubs to visit.

The Canadian border is a short twenty minutes away from Sandy Point and Vancouver, B.C. is about another hour drive's away. Vancouver is a world-class city and offers a bounty of attractions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
We bought this house with the hope of retiring here in a few years. There is still hope for that but in the meantime, we would like you to enjoy the house and surrounding area.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
House is relaxing, easy to care for. The saltwater dock outside the rear doors allows you access to the San Juan Islands and beyond.
