About the owner: I've lived in the Bellingham area since 1969. I've been a nurse at the local hospital for over 30 years.
Why the Owner Chose Sudden Valley: I was looking for an investment property to rent out. I loved it so much that I never did rent it out and had to keep it for myself. Now that I won't be able to use it as much because of a job move, I can share it more.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: I would say the beauty of the area is the thing I love most about my condo. I love the quiet, but I also love the sounds that the birds, the frogs and the coyotes make. The local deer are like yard ornaments, they make themselves at home to be sure. I love walking to the 2 pretty little beaches down the street to watch the ducks and geese. It's a little bit of heaven 15 minutes from Bellingham (population 82,000), 1.5 hours from Seattle (to the south) and 2 hours to Vancouver, BC (to the north)
