Property description

Perched high upon a rocky hilltop, 355 Lone Cone is conveniently located within walking distance to town, shops, restaurants and marina. The custom home offers views of mountains and water from every room- even the shower! The master suite includes a queen sized bed, soaker tub, large shower, double sinks, separate w/c, walk in closet (with skylight), double -sided fireplace and small balcony. Plenty of room to sit and read or do your morning yoga. The other bedrooms has 2 queen sized beds and connected bathroom has a large walk in shower. There is also a den with HD Sat TV and comfy reclining chairs.
The main level is the heart of the home. The kitchen is equipped with stainless counters making clean up super easy. Three skylights add more than ample natural light. An added attraction of a built in 'al forno' oven completes the kitchen. Imagine cooking pizza while the alder fired oven warms the central chimney making the house warms for hours. The Oven is connected to the chimney housing the double-sided fireplace between the living room and dining room. The open concept is wonderful for entertaining and everyone gets a view through the wall of windows on the front of the house.
The laundry room is off the kitchen and has a front loading washer and dryer and keeps bright with a skylight. The large cedar deck captures sunshine from morning to evening all summer long. Perfect for morning coffee, afternoon relaxing, evening BBQ and cocktails.
This home is perfect for a romantic getaway or for two couples to share. You will want to stay longer once you experience this lovely location.
