Property description

Retreat to a 5 acre home site with 11 acres of adjacent forest of quiet, soaring eagles and deer visits. A walkabout nature trail through the woods circles the home site and pond. This modern style, original art-filled home completed in 2012 includes a separate rental one bedroom fully-equipped guest apartment. The main house has a very large master with king bed and luxury bath and the upstairs guest room has 2 double beds with bath. The living room sofa sleeps one and there is a first floor powder room. Plenty of driveway to park a boat trailer. Fully-equipped the way you'd want your second home to be ready for your own visit.
The original property address was 720 Prohaska, but the access is only from the 35 Sacred Moon Way driveway. One day the post office and Google will update their databases - sorry for any confusion.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I fell in love with this island in 1976 when I was there to teach a class, visited several times over the years and in 2006 two families found the 16-acre parcel of our dreams. Both families live in busy So CA and we wanted the peace and privacy that comes with the rural forest and lots of space. My love of the ocean, nature, art and sculpture fill the house and gardens.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor:
This custom property is a low VOC, low allergen, amenity-filled home situated so light fills the house and every piece of art has a story. Kids have room to explore, enjoy a rural environment, see stars at night while parents read, BBQ, take walks and enjoy porch and patio sitting time. It's nice to be away from the traffic and town. Enjoy the craftsmanship and love that the island artisans built into my home and the computer and internet connection available for guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The wetlands behind the house has frogs, dragon flies & tad poles. The small deer come to drink and then walk around the lawn perimeters. The walkabout is a perfect 1/4 mile walk thru the woods to start and end each day. The property is in the island center, so Lime Kiln State Park, American Beach, Friday Harbor town or Roche Harbor are only a 20 minute scenic drive away.
