Holmes Harbor chateau / country house description
Enjoy this custom, craftsman home for your much needed vacation getaways all year round. This exquisite 5 year old,2200 sq.ft, 3 BR, loft, 2 bath Whidbey Island home is situated on a horse acre (with a horse) and placed on a gently sloping hillside overlooking beautiful Holmes Harbor and our private beach. Come for a reflective and soothing reunion with nature and revel in the peace and quiet of our exclusive area. Combine this property with our Lighthouse Cottage(listing 175962) 1/2 block away, for a large family gathering or event sleeping 12 to 14 people. Sip your coffee on our 40' deck watching the ocean and catch a glimpse of Eagles soaring to and from their nest just a few yards away.
With a touch of Cape Cod and the warmth of French country wood beams and paneling, enjoy the Extroidinair River Rock fireplace and the open floor plan. The bright cathedral ceiling reveals large windows all around showing the beautiful towering fir trees and a view to the olympics. The loft is a lindal sunroom with windows in the side and roof to gaze at the bright blue sky, garden and evergreens by day and the glorious moon and stars at night. The dining room french doors lead you out to the back deck and the lovely garden which gives way to the 50 acre tree farm situated behind this home. With lovely woods on each side of the house, the horse acre feels like a grand estate.
With just a short 3 min. walk through our completely quiet, beautifully landscaped neighborhood,(we are below E. Harbor road so no road noise at all) you will reach our private picturesque beach with views to Greenbank Farm, Oak Harbor and the San Juans. Stroll the beach or sit amongst the driftwood and feel the serenity. You may see a sailboat glide by or perhaps a seal pup looking for his Mom. We are a quiet restful community so you'll never see a rowdy crowd at our beach. Lovely homes, both vintage and new, grace the shoreline and wind up the gentle hills of the neighborhood. It is truly the nicest neighborhood at this end of the island.
Our gorgeous mature paint mare, Josie, graces the property with her grazing and quiet walking about to show us the pace we should have. Enjoy her presence (Owners and stable help care for her) and if you have children or adults that love horses, pony rides are definitely available as well as beginning saddlery lessons if you have the desire to learn more. She is a treasure to behold.
The Bedrooms and baths are well appointed with 2 king size beds that can be converted to 2 twins if desired in two of the bedrooms, 1 queen bed in third bedroom, twin bed in the loft all with lovely, comfortable linens and bath accessories. The kitchen lends itself to that gourmet holiday meal with a Jennair convection oven with gas burners and grill and all the utensils and tools to create that perfect family meal. Gather at our large dining table for your dinner or games and enjoy the entire family gathering, with plenty of room to cook and visit. This is the time and place to savor togetherness and enjoy the island and all its glory!

Great value overlooking Holmes Harbor
Great value overlooking Holmes Harbor
This country house is a real gem. Although it is a couple of streets back from the waterfront there are plenty of Holmes Harbor views and extremely easy beach access. Currently there are no other homes on either side and behind is a large tree farm. This is an extremely quiet property. The home has all of the amenities that you could possibly want and they are honestly detailed in the listing. One person can feel comfortable in this home; we had two couples with one baby and there was never a feeling of being crowded in the slightest. Super access to Freeland and good access to Langley. Huge value for the price. Very clean. Perfect for an Island getaway.

This is a beautiful house, in a lovely quiet area. However, we felt we were house-sitting for someone we didn't know - because of the family photos displayed, condiments in the refigerator & even clothes in the closets!

About the owner: This house is truly the dream house we always wanted. We have always been partial to dormers and porches and when we saw this house in the Lindal Craftsman offerings, we knew we had found the perfect design. It's very light and bright all year round and because we love the trees and the water, it was the perfect setting and neighborhood. The land was purchased many years ago, but we always hoped we could build on this site at some point. That dream came true and now it is available to share with all our guests. It is our pleasure to welcome our guests to this incredible property
