Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: HI, This property was my home for several years. When I bought the place it was uninhabitable. The house was in shambles. The grounds were over grown in places, or had otherwise never been used. Over the past 15 years, I with the help of 'friends' (most of whom still answer the phone when I call :) ) have made the property a unique slice on Holmes Harbor. Built originally in the 1940's - I have tried to maintain the unique character of the 'cabin' and have the grounds compliment it's size. I have combined native plant growth with fun areas for playing, relaxing and working - though I don't expect you to partake of the later. I strive to always have something blooming in the gardens - no matter the season.
Why the Owner Chose Freeland, WA, USA:
From the moment I drove in the driveway - after cutting back fist sized black berry to fit in the driveway....I knew the potential this property had. Great Eastern placement. Cooler, yet sunny in the mornings.... WHAT's more the afternoons and Evening SUNSETS will take your breath away....or give your heart a renewed sense of Peace. The house had a good layout, open and easy - she just needed some, well, a lot of TLC. With new everything from flooring, walls, insulation, appliances all the meaty stuff.... she's a gem. Added Benefits we're within 15 minutes to the ferry, and close to all that's 'happening' on Island.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great Location. QUIET Property. SUNSETS, Fun House whether you are 3, 30, 60, or 90 years old. Read my reviews. You'll find that some 3 NOW 4yr old's think the loft is the 'bomb' and the swing is fun. Most others are in the 30 - 60+ year range. AND my 90 year old guests like the ease of getting around, enjoying the deck. The house is well appointed. NOT your typical rental furnishings. Fun Art, added appointments. I try to keep things fresh, and make changes each year.
