Property description

Built in 1939 as a hunting lodge, much of the original craftsmanship remains. Situated on 2.5 acres with over 200 feet of no bank waterfront, this is the ideal location for a family gathering or for several adults to unwind, play, and truly relax. Nestled on the mouth of Penn Cove and short walk into the town of Coupeville, this magical home is packed with history. All the way from the mounted deer trophies to the original hardwoods and latch hardware on the doors. No knobs!

The kitchen runs almost the entire width of the house and is equipped for a group that likes to eat well. Modern appliances and all the gourmet gear you will need are at your fingertips to make cooking fun, not a chore. There is room to dine in the kitchen, the living/dining room and on the deck as well. After that, enjoy an after dinner beverage on the beach and then retire to one of the four very comfortable bedrooms. You will sleep later than you think!
So please come and enjoy what Whidbey island, Coupeville, and this special place have to offer. Oh yeah, and don't forget to eat some mussels.

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Mom bought this house 10 years ago as a vacation property and then moved into it for a short time. She now lives in downtown Seattle and is shown here with my Couper, named after Coupeville.

Why Coupeville:
The tremendous appeal of this property is twofold. The charm and the location. It is so comfortable and relaxing being right on the beach, but also close to all the amenities of Coupeville.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy due to a large 2.5 acre lot with lots of room for outdoor activities. Sun all day long in the summer and very little wind unlike the other side of the island. Good crabbing.
