Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: I am an architect and dabble in garden design. Love to cook and entertain. Also a triathlete so cycling and running are big parts of fitness.

Why the Owner Chose Lynden:
Gorgeous five acre historic farmstead dating from the 1880's in northern Whatcom county. Very private and surrounded by raspberry fields and natural beauty. Lovely garden setting wonderful in winter and summer but best in the spring when the irises and peonies heirloom roses put on a show.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Cozy for two for a romantic getaway, but comfortable sleeps 6. Great kitchen. Location convenient for touring Whatcom county by car on the bike or running. Mt. Baker is 40 minutes away for winter skiing. Bellingham farmer's market a half hour away. Great farmstand in Everson. Wonderful peonie farm and several top notch nurseries nearby.
