Coupeville house description

Spend hours beach combing on the shores of Admiralty Bay or gazing out at the Olympic Mountains and Keystone ferry making it's run across the Sound. Fly kites and explore the big guns at nearby Fort Casey or hop a ferry to the historic town of Port Townsend for dining or shopping. Beach comb and bird watch, scuba dive and scour the horizon for submarines and cruise ships. Did we mention the spa day option in Coupeville? All this is possible from our beach home situated at water's edge and surrounded by a 1600+ acre wildlife preserve, the largest in the Pacific NorthWest. Our home is adjacent to a State owned preserve and feels very private. We are located on Whidbey's Scenic Isle Way 90 minutes from Seattle (including ferry from Mukilteo) and minutes from cute and historic Coupeville.

Our kid friendly, no smoking two-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath home (2359sqft) is perfectly suited for two couples or a family. The two large, bedroom suites each feature a queen-size bed. The recreation room includes a new 46 inch flat screen, DVD, satellite TV, high speed internet and wifi throughout the house. The living room/dining room, kitchen covers the full width of the house and is completely windowed for maximum view.There is a murphy bed located in the dining room (which closes off with pocket doors),overlooking the water. The kitchen features everything a gourmet cook could want plus there is an outdoor beach barbecue (firepit) area. The house is heated with two gas fireplaces that will take the chill off any of those on shore breezes you may encounter.

An 800-square-foot deck just steps from the water and two enclosed patio areas give you plenty of room to sun, nap, read, or just 'be.' A second, fully-enclosed, court yard located outside one of the bedrooms for star gazing, bird watching, or just solitude and relaxation. Recent new bathroom addition (2012) and new carpet throughout (2013).

Listen to the birds as they flit about - you are in the middle of one of the largest bird sanctuaries in Washington State. Or go for a walk - there are miles of trails at Fort Casey and nearby Ebey's Landing. You could go into one of the historic towns on Whidbey Island - Coupeville, Greenbank, or Langley. Deception Pass State Park is just a short drive away - a site visitors come from far away to see. On occasion during the summer, the jet Prowler squadron based at Whidbey Naval Air Station practice touch and go up at the airstrip about a mile away. You can park at the end of that airstrip and watch them roar overhead or you can admire them from our deck. You will never lack for things to do - or not to do if you so please. You might even be lucky enough to have our resident bald eagle sit on the flagpole for your viewing enjoyment!

                  • Crockett Lake Bird Sanctuary View on map

                    Thousands of shorebirds (more than 17 different species) rely on the lake as an important migration staging area. The area provides critical wintering and nesting habitat for more than 13 species of ducks. At least nine species of raptors are regular visitors, including Peregrine Falcons and Merlins. And, more than 238 species of birds have been recorded in the Crockett Lake area. The lake also has an interesting history. Anticipation of the Great Northern Railway passing through Whidbey Island on its way to Port Townsend sent speculators into a frenzy platting the towns of “Chicago” and “Brooklyn” on the Keystone Spit to take advantage of the new commerce promised by the impending railroad in the late 1880s.

                    Fort Casey is a 467 acre state park which was built in the 1890s as a strategic fortress to defend Pugest Sound. Explore the huge gun batteries and pillboxes or watch eagles and fly a kite on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Admiralty Inlet was considered so strategic to the defense of Puget Sound in the 1890s that three forts, Fort Casey on Whidbey Island, Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island, and Fort Worden at Port Townsend, were built at the entrance with huge guns creating a "Triangle of Fire." This military strategy was built on the theory that the three fortresses would thwart any invasion attempt by sea. The Admiralty Head Lighthouse is located in the state park.
