Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: My name is Jan and I have two wonderful little girls, Hana (16) and Camille (13). We live in Seattle and travel to our home on Orcas Island as much as possible, all year long. It is a very special place to us. We love to hike, boat and swim on Orcas Island, we love our town, and we love to explore all that the islands have to offer. We have a dog named Max who loves the island too!
Why the Owner Chose Eastsound, WA, USA:
When I first came to visit the San Juan islands in the early 1990's, I was struck by the beauty of Orcas Island and just kept coming back. I knew that eventually I wanted to own a piece of this island and in 1999 that dream came true when our family purchased this wonderful home. We love the combination of recreational activities that we can do here - on the ocean as well as at the Moran State Park and we enjoy all that the picturesque town of Eastsound brings - all the amenities as well as well a strong sense of community. We also love exploring the other San Juan islands when we get the chance.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we saw this home in 1999 we instantly fell in love with it. The Pacific NW open design, custom architecture, and all the wood in the house felt very warm and unique. We loved the large deck and amazing westerly sunset views of Turtleback Mountain and the Islands. We loved the easy floor plan. We loved the private, quiet feeling of the neighborhood and that there would be a place for kids to play. We loved the location - both the proximity to the park and all the recreational activities that would bring for us, and the short drive to town.
