Friday Harbor house description

Architect's own 4000 sq. ft. custom home with all natural materials and top of the line appliances & fixtures- think 'Designer Showcase' house.

Eat outdoors on private deck facing West with sunsets over Mitchell Bay. Master Bedroom faces the water view with large bathroom, Kohler sok tub, and steam shower. Two other bedrooms share a large bath with double sinks, shower and tub. Separate mini-Master downstairs with King bed with water view, and large leather sofa sectional and private bath.

Great Room has gas fireplace with window bench to hang out on and enjoy the view with a book. Gourmet kitchen has Wolf range, Subzero ref. & frez., 2 Bosch dishwashers, and 2 sinks. Mitchell Bay waterfront is a quick walk down a path to the shoreline-about a 50' drop in elevation to the shore. Property shares 13 common acres for privacy and nature hikes.300 acres of open space and trails is down the street off Horse Trail Road to the Mitchell Hill National Park. Enjoy bald eagles and wildlife views. Walking distance to English Camp National Park. Roche Harbor and the Sculpture Park are a quick bike ride away.

Keywords: Custom showcase home overlooking Mitchell Bay, huge gourmet kitchen, great room, large private deck with outdoor fireplace, BBQ, HOT TUB, and perfect sunsets. Two mini masters both facing the water.

          Car: Necessary

          We are located at the backside of Mitchell Bay facing West for Beautiful sunsets on the private deck. A short walk down a path leads to the bank of Mitchell Bay- great for clamming or picnicking. Enjoy a nap in the hammock by the fire pit up by the house. Nature galore with bald eagles in the surrounding trees, deer wandering through on a daily basis and lots of bird life. We are close to English Camp, Mount Young, 350 acres of open space trails on Mitchell Hill. Roche Harbor is a 5 minute drive with a Spa, shops, artisan booths, 3 restaurants and a grocery store. The Roche Harbor Marina has kayak rentals, and bike/moped rentals with Suzie's Mopeds. An Alpaca farm and country store is also down the street. Friday Harbor is a 15 minute drive away. The closest Public Beaches with 'sand' are Jackson's Beach, and at American Camp (the biggest). Watch whales from the shore at the County Park- great for picnicking at sunset too! Most of our shoreline is rocky (we call our island the ROCK), so there are not many private sandy beaches. Enjoy the best of the Pacific Northwest here!
