                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: We have spent many wonderful times with family/friends at this oceanfront property the home is set up for outdoor entertaining with large patios at both the front and the back of the home-the front patio has a spectacular view of the San Juan and Gulf Islands;from this area it is a very short walk to the beach, the back patio is completely enclosed and is safe for young children and level so that children can play with their wagon or tricycle. There is an expansive set of floor to ceiling windows in the dining room, kitchen/living room, and master bedroom. The large stone fireplace is very inviting on a cool winter, spring or fall evening With a crackling fire, quiet music, and a good book , it is a very relaxing place to be.

                          Why the Owner Chose Point Roberts:
                          This vacation home is a great location, overlooking the Juan de Fuca Strait, with views of the San Juan Islands, as well as some of the Gulf Islands, in the Gulf of Georgia. There are many interesting sites of many species of birds flying by and landing on the trees down the bluff in front of this home-bald eagles, geese, blue herons etc.; cruise ships , both day and night, cruise by the home, giving a magical quality to the view; weekly sightings of sailboats from the nearby Marina, provide excitement as they race by in pursuit of winning the race. The short walk to the expansive beach, is advantageous when one wishes to walk for miles on the sandbars; one can have a swim on a hot summer's day in the very clean, clear ocean water; a person can enjoy kayaking with family or friends in our 2 ocean going kayaks. There are many different walks around Point Roberts to keep one in shape, not far from the house. A great getaway location with nature and beauty all around you, in a peaceful setting.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Natural beauty with the expansive ocean, San Juan and Gulf Islands in full view from living room, dining area, and master bedroom. On clear evenings the moon with its silver path over the waters, is truly spectacular-you are at one with nature!
