Property description

This 14 acre secluded estate on the top of Scott Hill on Orcas Island is truly an oasis. It has over 180 degrees of magnificent marine and mountain views. Enjoy the 3,400 feet of living space on the main level plus the many luxury amenities like our 70-foot lap pool, complete exercise room, and hot tubs-- all with fantastic views. Explore our woods, pick fresh fruits, herbs, and greens in our organic garden, start a campfire and enjoy the westerly views, or just pick your favorite spot to relax. Listen to the birds sing while you relax in the hammock next to the ponds set in a peaceful opening in the Douglas fir forests. Then sit back, at the end of the day, with a drink and your friends and watch the sun set over the Gulf Islands.

As you enter our main house you will be immediately drawn to the expansive ocean views from the many windows of the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The main living area has a large screen TV; a large dining table; a family room; and spacious kitchen with all dishes and utensils needed to cook a gourmet meal. These areas, most bedrooms, the master bathroom, and the sitting area all have vaulted beamed ceilings, stone counters, elegant built-in cabinets, and custom dining tables. The 3 bedrooms (all with queen beds) are in the other end of the house with two bathrooms, a laundry room, and a sitting room with two stained glass windows and space for the convertible beds. The numerous decks add space to enjoy the peaceful views.

Our guest house also has beamed ceilings, stone counters, and elegant built-in cabinets. The design and accommodations are as nice as the main house - just smaller. Please contact Owner with any questions about guest house rental.

The lower spa level of the main house includes a large hot tub, 70-foot indoor lap pool, bathroom, pool table, and a fully-equipped exercise room.

Also available is a picnic area with a fire ring so you can enjoy a campfire with s'mores and beautiful sunsets.

Orcas Oasis also has a lovely meadow with wildflowers, space to run and explore, or play a game of horseshoes or croquet. There are two ponds where you can relax in the hammock and enjoy the sound of the birds splashing in the water.

Car: Recommended

1 mile from the Orcas Ferry landing. Google Maps (or your car's G.P.S.) should be accurate from ferry landing to Orcas Oasis. But don't count on GPS to find your way around Orcas as the maps often do not show Orcas local roads accurately.

We are 1 miles from a great grocery store, marina, restaurant, kayak tours, tour boats to see Orca whales, and coffee shop. We are 2 miles from Westsound village and about 7 miles from Eastsound.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Bob & Barb moved from Minnesota to be close to the ocean and to sail. We bought a great 40ft racing sailboat and spent much of the last 13 years in competitive racing in the Pacific NW. Before moving we went shopping for land on Orcas and purchased 16 acres on the top of Scott Hill in the Victorian Valley. We built a custom home and guest home designed by renowned local Architect Roy Lundgren.

Why the Owner Chose Orcas:
We built on the Scott Hill location due to its fantastic marine views to the SE, South, West ans NW. We also never tire of the year-round great sunsets. We built on Orcas Island because of its location -- on the water and close enough to the mountains for convenient skiing without living in the snow. We also love the weather. Orcas has short winters without much snow, cherry blossoms in February and March, sunny summers, and generally moderate temperatures.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Privacy with expansive marine and mountain views, bird songs in a peaceful setting, camp fires in the woods, relaxing in the hot tub, swimming in the indoor 70-foot lap pool, and exercise facilities so you don't feel too decadent enjoying all the other amenities.
