Coupeville house description
This private beach house is located within the Ebey's Reserve National Reserve Park area and is situated on the west side of Whidbey Island on its own private beach. The home is in the middle of the Keystone Spit in a national park adjacent to Fort Casey State Park, yet the Beach House is just four miles from the historic town of Coupeville, a Red Apple grocery store and Whidbey General Hospital. The home is surrounded on three sides by public property and only has three neighbors to the west. This home is not stacked and packed into a large development of beach houses but instead is part of a small in-holding within and between State and National park areas. You will really enjoy the privacy.
You can relax in 2800 + square feet of comfort in this fully equipped home. The large private fenced backyard goes almost all the way to the high tide line of Puget Sound. Since several people have asked, our property is on the water and it is private waterfront. There is over 2 miles of State owned beach to the east of ours, but it is pretty quiet and rarely used. An adjustable forced air heating system will keep you warm in the winter and the AC will keep you cool in the summer.
Enjoy wonderful water, mountain, and shipping views from almost every room in the house. A huge deck with four foot tall, one-quarter inch thick safety glass walls is perfect for dinner and drinks. We are immediately adjacent to almost two miles of publicly owned 'Ebey's Reserve' beach so our location feels very private. Puget Sound is due south and the Lake Crockett bird refuge is due north across the street, so there is a lot of water views in almost all directions. There are so many different views of the site that you should request a link to more photos so you can get a better idea.
One of my favorite views is to the west right before sunset of the Colonel's house in old Fort Casey. I have some great pictures of this and will forward a link upon request.
The Beach House is only a five minute (flat) walk to the Keystone Ferry with service to Port Townsend! The ferry leaves from very close by and lands right in the heart of the waterfront of the beautiful town of Port Townsend, so no car is needed to enjoy the fine restaurants, shopping, and other amenities available there.
Outdoor activities abound here, with fantastic salmon fishing and crabbing, wonderful kayaking or world class diving from your backyard. The public boat launch is next to the ferry terminal and is less than one minute by car. The home is bounded by Fort Casey State Park on east, Puget Sound on the south, and Crockett Lake on the north. Whidbey Island is the home of Naval Air Station Oak Harbor. The aircraft, ships, subs, and parachutists can appear at anytime. The aircraft and parachutists have been seen flying in most areas, including overhead.
This smoke-free home is located in the middle of the main waterfowl flyway of Whidbey Island. For you runners, the distance around the lake is 5.6 miles. An excellent training area for both running and biking. A wise choice for the family that wishes to be close to the cities, but maintain their privacy.
This home is 90 minutes from Seattle (including Ferry) and 75 minutes from Bellingham by car. The local airport is 15 minutes away and air taxi can be arranged with Kenmore Air 866 435 9524. The 25 minute trip from Seattle is scheduled 4 times a week.
The Beach House is equipped for 8 persons in four separate and quiet bedrooms and is kid friendly. There is also one additional semi private sleeping area not including the great room with a King sized Murphy bed. One of the ground floor rooms with a king bed also has a large window seat that can also be utilized as a sleeping area.
The home has DSL internet and a wireless router for easy use by guests. Each bedroom has two cat5 ethernet jacks to connect to the network too. DirecTV service is provided on at least 2 TV's .
We recently added a gym quality LifeFitness 9500 Elliptical training machine.

Walk the beach to collect drift wood and what else shows up, building fort with the driftwood, walking to the Keystone Cafe for great ice cream, extraordinary bird and ship watching, exploring Fort Casey State Park and watching rabbits scamper about. Other nearby attractions include wine tasting/winery tours, bike rides, cute historic town of Coupeville (2nd oldest City in Washington State). The home is an easy walk to Fort Casey State Park and the Washington State Ferry at Coupeville (Keystone) to the historic 'Victorian' town of Pt. Townsend and further to the Olympic Mountains and Hurricane Ridge. The Lake Crockett Wildlife Refuge/Bird Sanctuary is located immediately across the street to the north of our house and is great for birdwatching of Eagles, Owls, Herons, Sandpipers and a lot more.
The house faces the entrance to Puget Sound from the Strait of Juan De Fuca & Pacific Ocean and ALL shipping traffic passes right in front of the house.
Great restaurants in Coupeville include 'The Oyster Catcher' open from Wednesday to Sunday and 'Christopher's' open 7 days per week. Please also try to drop in at 'Bayleaf' for great high end wine, cheeses, and specialty foodstuffs. The best espresso & coffee you will find is at the end of the Coupeville Wharf at 'Local Grown' opening by 6:30am. Ask William for a 'mexican latte' which are fantastic and hot!
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are busy professionals in Seattle (mom is a pediatrician at Ballard Pediatrics and dad is a mortgage banker at Westwood Mortgage) and we wanted to find a place out of the city for our family. Our boys love the beach (don't all kids) and Whidbey Island is beautiful with the peacefulness of the San Juan Islands but with nearby services like a Hospital right up the road. Since we are very busy and can't get up to this property as much as we desire, we have chosen to share this home with you. We hope you can create some great memories with yoru friends and family like we do.
Why the Owner Chose Coupeville:
This home is located in a small sliver of private property of 7 homes surrounded by park property, wildlife refuge, a Washington State Ferry Terminal (Coupeville to Pt. Townsend), an underwater dive park (Keystone Underwater Park) and both fresha nd salt water. So, how often can you buy a beach house inside of a Park? Central Whidbey and Ebey's Reserve is like the San Juan Islands without the 5+ hour journey and lack of services. Our relatively isolated home sits within the Ebey's Landing National Reserve Park and feels a lot further away than 1.5 hours from Seattle. There is great Salmon fishing right on our beach. Our house is on the east end of the seven homes and it is adjacent to over two miles of State of Washington owned beach and park area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wonderful walks on the beach collecting beach glass and various other things that wash ashore, piles of driftwood, sunrises and sunsets, happy islanders, and a generally relaxed feeling. We can't get enough. Our family and friends love to visit. This house is not scrunched up against a long row of homes, you can have some quiet privacy. Switch this Google map to satellite view and see how much open space you can enjoy when you are here. Watch ferries come and go all day long from the beach or the deck.
