                          Year Purchased: 1996

                          About: After several summers of looking for that 'right' spot on the water, we found this perfect setting on the north shore almost 17 years ago.

                          Why Eastsound:
                          From our living room or our yard, we can view abundant marine wildlife - otters, seals, porpoises - and the many varieties of birds. Eagles and deer frequently visit the yard. Grandchildren and grandparents alike can easily access the beach via the gradual bank steps. In the winter we can stay warm and dry by the wood stove, watching the sea crash against the shore. It's the perfect spot any time of year!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Close to east sound for convenience, yet a sense of privacy and adventure at this waterfront location.
