Beautiful east facing covered porch with view to Strait of Juan de Fuca, overlooking the front garden, and undeveloped lot across, full of cedars and singing birds. Beyond the back fence is over 2000 acres of undeveloped land, trails, and beach access.
The focal viewpoint is Protection Island in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, to the north. This is a magnificent rocky outcrop that is a Federally protected National Wildlife Refuge. Protection Island is known for its breeding colony of Tufted Puffin, rhinoceros auklets, and gulls. It is on the flyway for many migrating birds. Seals, sea lions, orcas, and other cetaceans are often seen nearby. Beyond Protection Island, are views to the San Juan Islands, Mt. Baker, and Vancouver Island.
You can hop on your bike and explore the endless trails of the adjacent Miller Peninsula State Park, take a walk on the meandering quiet streets of the neighborhood. A ten-minute walk will bring you to a private beach that goes on for miles in either direction, at the bottom of the cliff.
WALKING & HIKING: Many hiking trails within 30-60 min. including Dungeness Spit, upper Dungeness area, Deer Park, Hurricane Ridge, Quilcene, Dosewallips, etc.
BICYCLING: Close access to the Discovery Bike trail, a mostly separated and paved bicycle, walking route, starting at Sequim Bay on the east end and Port Angeles, on the west. Also other great road riding and mountain biking nearby.
I am not interested in long-term rentals; one-month max.
