Sequim house description

Nestled on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, on the northwest corner of Discovery Bay in Diamond Point, on the Olympic Peninsula; Diamond Retreat is a fully furnished home, decorated with original art by Northwest artists. It has a huge front porch with comfortable furniture, a beautiful front garden, and a back yard that borders Miller State Park.

Situated in a quiet area, with easy access to Sequim, Port Townsend, Olympic National Park (many access points), Olympic Music festival, Quilcene, Dungeness Spit, and many more areas – this is a great place to spend many days. Located only 37 miles from the Edmonds-Kingston ferry.

House was built in late ‘90s and has a very efficient heating-cooling system, modern kitchen (lots of accessories); two large bedrooms; and comfortable, well lit living space with vaulted ceiling and wood stove.

Beautiful east facing covered porch with view to Strait of Juan de Fuca, overlooking the front garden, and undeveloped lot across, full of cedars and singing birds. Beyond the back fence is over 2000 acres of undeveloped land, trails, and beach access.

The focal viewpoint is Protection Island, a magnificent rocky outcrop that is a Federally protected National Wildlife Refuge. Protection Island is known for its breeding colony of Tufted Puffin, rhinoceros auklets, and gulls. It is on the flyway for many migrating birds. Seals, sea lions, orcas, and other cetaceans are often seen nearby. Beyond Protection Island, are views to the San Juan Islands, Mt. Baker, and Vancouver Island.

You can hop on your bike and explore the endless trails of the adjacent Miller Peninsula State Park, take a walk on the meandering quiet streets of the neighborhood. A ten-minute walk will bring you to a private beach that goes on for miles in either direction, at the bottom of the cliff.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Jay is an architect with his own practice and is also an artist; painting in encaustic (with beeswax), printmaking, and log carving. I am passionate about hiking, bicycling, skiing, camping and sea kayaking.

Why Sequim:
Over the years, I have rented cabins near Sequim several times and have grown very fond of this area because there is so much to explore along with quiet relaxation. The mountains are nearby, yet the distance between mountains and shore is vast and offers much opportunities for walks and hikes. Some of my favorite places are the Miller Peninsula state park, located adjacent to the property; the Discovery trail (35+ mile bike route); and many hikes in the Olympic National Park and Buckhorn Wilderness. Port Townsend is 25 minutes away, with weekend events all through the summer and fall. The Sequim area has a low amount of rainfall, located in a rain-shadow, with more sun than other places in the region, making this a great place for outdoor recreation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I remember stepping onto the huge porch when I first visited the property, experiencing the silence and a deep feeling of peace; viewing the garden, Strait of Juan de Fuca, and mountains and islands beyond. It is always a wonderful experience, full of so much to see and explore. The property is adjacent to over 2000 acres of undeveloped land, full of trails and mature trees. As well there are no neighbors to two other sides. Within a month, I became the owner and with every visit since then, that sense of calm and space has grown. It is always so wonderful to be on the front east-facing porch, or in the backyard paying attention to the birds' songs.
