Property description

Charming traditional farmhouse near Bellingham

Enjoy curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book or playing outside with your family in this recently remodeled farmhouse in Ferndale.

Delightful in all four seasons and offering comfort and privacy on seven acres, with barns and large open fields, abutting a small, forested area on Deer Creek and Barrett Lake. Wildlife abounds, especially waterfowl, deer, and bald eagles, ideal for bird watching.

Recently remodeled with an eye toward convenience and comfort, it’s fully-furnished, with a large, well-equipped kitchen (no dishwasher)

Enjoy the outdoors on the spacious private deck, with a BBQ area and picnic table.

Close to shopping and outdoor activities of all kinds.

Conveniently located just 10 minutes from Bellingham and its waterfront parks and restaurants, 20 minutes to the Canadian border, and 50 miles from Vancouver, British Columbia. An hour to Mt. Baker where you can ski, snowboard or sled in the winter or hike in the summer and fall.
