Car: Necessary

We are located at the backside of Mitchell Bay facing West for Beautiful sunsets on the private deck. A short walk down a path leads to the bank of Mitchell Bay- great for clamming or picnicking. Enjoy a nap in the hammock by the fire pit up by the house. Nature galore with bald eagles in the surrounding trees, deer wandering through on a daily basis and lots of bird life. We are close to English Camp, Mount Young, 350 acres of open space trails on Mitchell Hill. Roche Harbor is a 5 minute drive with a Spa, shops, artisan booths, 3 restaurants and a grocery store. The Roche Harbor Marina has kayak rentals, and bike/moped rentals with Suzie's Mopeds. An Alpaca farm and country store is also down the street. Friday Harbor is a 15 minute drive away. The closest Public Beaches with 'sand' are Jackson's Beach, and at American Camp (the biggest). Watch whales from the shore at the County Park- great for picnicking at sunset too! Most of our shoreline is rocky (we call our island the ROCK), so there are not many private sandy beaches. Enjoy the best of the Pacific Northwest here!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Architect wife, Real Estate agent husband, built this dream home after re-locating from Mill Valley, CA. with their 2 children. We bought the property because of the great views and the spectacular sunsets won our hearts.

Why the Owner Chose Friday Harbor, WA, USA:
This house was designed as our private residence.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy, seclusion and spectacular sunsets. Very quiet location makes you feel you are away from it all. Roche Harbor is only ten minutes away for great waterfront activities and dining and grocery store. Enjoy wildlife viewing right out the window with bald eagles nesting in the trees out back and deer roaming daily. We would be happy to send you more photos of the interiors upon request.
