                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1988

                  Why the Owner Chose Eastsound:
                  Heartwood House has been a vacation destination since 1995. I was enchanted by the unique features when I first saw the house in 1988 and wanted a beautiful, safe community to raise my three children. It's a magical home that calls forth imagination and creativity for all who gather here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It's an easy walk into Eastsound, the main village on Orcas. You can play on the public beach and when the tide's right, walk out to Indian Island. Young and old get a chance to explore and discover Nature's grace in the tidepools, hiking in Moran State Park and playing at Cascade Lake.
