Friday Harbor house description

As you step into this exclusive west-side Mitchell Point home your eyes are immediately drawn to the stunning 180° ocean view encompassing Vancouver Island and the beautiful Haro Strait. This contemporary home sits on a high bank with views across the strait and down to the water’s edge, offering the best of two worlds - enjoy both nature and the man-made additions to Haro Strait. The warm and friendly environment allows you to watch Orcas, eagles, otter, seals, and a myriad of birds. Or watch international shipping traffic, whale watching boats, sailboats and kayakers from the living room or deck. Track the maritime traffic with your laptop or tablet from any room in the house with high-speed WiFi. Make good use of the telescope and binoculars! Enjoy refreshments on the deck and revel in the daily glory of awe-inspiring sunsets.

Steam a crab, grill oysters, or bake a blackberry pie in the fully equipped kitchen with new appliances. And there’s a coffee grinder – bring your beans.
The house is filled with light – windows surround the living and dining rooms, and skylights are present in every room upstairs. Drift off to sleep in luxurious new beds to the sight of stars overhead. Bedding and pillows are hypoallergenic.
We’re at the end of the road – there’s no traffic noise at all to interrupt the sounds of waves, birds, or breezes. If you’re after quiet, this is it – though the birds love to sing early in the morning.
A pair of bald eagles, Cosmo & Boris, like to roost for the night in the fir tree off the deck. If you’re on the deck around 9:45, you’re likely to see them arrive. They’ll be in ‘their’ tree until about 4:30 in the morning.
If you’re able to pull yourself away from the views, the media room includes a 42” LED TV with DirecTV and internet-enabled Blu-Ray player, configured for streaming Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or other media. High-speed WiFi internet access and free long-distance calls, too.
The west side of San Juan Island is the best location in all of the Pacific Northwest for viewing the resident Orca pods. These magnificent animals provide exuberant displays as they feed on salmon, traveling back and forth in the waters immediately in front of this home, sometimes several times each day. San Juan waters have been identified by Whale Museum biologists as a prime feeding area for the “J”, “K”, and “L” pods during the summer months.
Come see why the New York Times listed the San Juan Islands as #2 in their “Where to Go in 2011” guide – a list of 40 not-to-be-missed places around the world.
Ours is a special Northwest home. We hope you’ll relax and decompress in this unique and serene location, and enjoy the very special place that is San Juan Island.
