Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Shortly after our youngest graduated high school, we purchased Seashell Cottage and began renovating it. One cold night, we ventured out from our home just north of Seattle to Birch Bay to start work. That was one of the coldest nights we ever spent, sleeping on a mattress we hauled in our pick up truck! We found the cottage had no insulation and the heat was inadequate for that cold October night! We thought we'd be six weeks renovating, couldln't claim youth and ignorance; ever since that night, we learned the cottage would tell us what it needed next. I could not and should not go into all the details, suffice is to say, we've owned a few properties and know how to manage them.

Why the Owner Chose Birch Bay:
It is centrally located in Birch Bay to shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Particularly, of course, the beach is even easier! It is big enough for our growing family - grandkids. They are mysteriously drawn to that special shop called the 'C' Shop! It has such a village atmosphere, family oriented and that appealed to us, too, and no railroad tracks between us and the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We liked the charm of the home. It has the unique flavor of old Birch Bay, very calming with Alaska Yellow Cedar on the LR ceiling and Western Red Cedar on the LR walls.
