Bellingham house description

Three bedrooms with 3 queen size beds and 3 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove. Located in the peaceful Edgemoor neighborhood, within a mile of historic Fairhaven and blocks from Lairmont Manor Estate and Gardens. This beautiful home has a 180 degree view of Bellingham bay and spectacular sunsets from the spacious living area and master bedroom. We found this dream home for our retirement and since we are 3 years out from being able to move into it are willing it share this special home. It is extremely peaceful and away from city lights resulting in amazing stargazing after watching the sun set.

The location is close to historic Fairhaven, blocks from Lairmont Manor and close to Larrabee state park and Chuckanut drive. The large yard features a pickle ball court with basket ball hoops at either end. There is a game room with pool table and darts down stairs.

This is a new home for us and we are still in the process of completing the final touches of furnishings and did not want you to miss this opportunity as you perused VRBO's in the area for summer vacation opportunities.

We will be updating photo's as things progress. New fireplace inserts and other modifications are in the works. This is our second VRBO and we are really excited about it.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: My husband Paul and I currently live in Seattle, WA. We are planning on retiring in 3 years and look forward to moving to Bellingham 'The city of subdued excitement' at that time. In the meantime we are offering our newly acquired dream home for your enjoyment when we can't be there. This home was purchased the end of December 2013 and we have had fun adding a new upper deck, patio and side deck to open it up to the outdoors. Our Seattle home has a vacation rental located in the downstairs area. We know how to do it right to make your vacation the best it can be. Our Seattle listing is #311129 if you would like to look at the rave reviews we have received in the past.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
                  We have always thought about retiring in Bellingham which is such a cool place aside from being close to family and friends. When we came across this property it was love at first sight and we jumped on it. We were struck by the peacefulness of this property, the wonderful location and view plus the fact that Bellingham is rated as one of the top 10 small towns to retire to and vacation.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home is bright and airy, has a lovely view of the bay, is in a peaceful spot and totally relaxing. For exercise all you need to do is step onto the pickle ball court or shoot some hoops. There are many trails close by for hiking and beach access a short drive away. Historic Fairhaven with excellent restaurants, art galleries and shopping, is within walking distance only 1.1 miles. The property is located .3 miles from Lairmont Manor and Gardens, a great location if you are planning or attending an event at the manor.
