About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Office, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Your escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life is only a ferry ride away.

The property is located on a high bank over San Juan Channel, near the Shark Reef Sanctuary and features gorgeous views of surrounding islands and the sound. Over 8 acres of kid friendly woods and field. The house's new porches and decks highlight the incredible water and island views and the beautiful sunsets.

This house was designed as place for family house parties... a place to hang out with family and friends.

Two bedrooms with King size beds offer privacy and comfort. The rest of the crew sleeps in full size double beds, with trundles in the open loft.

There are two large, elegant bathrooms and a powder room. One bath has a 6' Riverbath jetted tub and a shower. The other is the size of a nice reading room.

The chef's kitchen is well equipped including new appliances, granite counters, slate floors, sharp knives, plenty of pots and pans, dishes for any kind of meals, and a peninsula for casual dining.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Ex chef, restauranteur, acupuncturist, jack of many trades. I designed and built this house as a place to gather friends and family together.

Why the Owner Chose Lopez Island, WA, USA:
Getting off the ferry on Lopez Island, I get the feeling that the pace of life changes. Projects and issues that are pressing seem to drop into perspective. I bought this particular piece of property for the sunsets. I never tire of the view.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fabulous view of SanJuan Channel and San Juan Island. Some vier of The olympic mountains. Porch wraps around front and side of the house, for lounging, or dining. Trails through the woods for exploration some lead to the swimming pond. Flat lawn for croquet, bocci, volleyball badminton etc. Open floor plan and large kitchen eating counter, makes for plenty of dining options. This is not a place to come and hide from your friends and family, the open loft and floor plan encourage interacting and being together. Private hammock views of the water and wildlife. Pingpong and pool tables in the garage.
