Property type apartment

About the property

1 BR/1 Bath, Sleeps 4, Children Welcome

Stone steps lead to this new lower level apartment, set in a perennial garden on Langley's waterfront bluff. It offers simplicity and comfort, serenity and warmth.

Enter through the cheerful kitchen, fully equipped with the essentials for cooking. The kitchen opens into a sunny large room that serves as both living and dining space. A wireless TV, books, puzzles, and games are there to entertain. The sofa/futon folds down easily to sleep another two people.

Enjoy peek-a-boo water view in the summer when the garden is bursting. The remainder of the year a full water view entertains.

Langley is a great place of departure for exploring other parts of Whidbey Island such as Coupeville, Deception Pass, Ebey's Prairie, the Greenbank Farm, and the beaches at Double Bluff and Maxwellton. Catch a whale watching tour, rent a kayak or moped, or make a day trip to the San Juan Islands. There is no shortage of things to do.

But you can also just spend your day unwinding, enjoying the village or sitting in the sun in your own private garden.

About Ursula Roosen-Runge

After treasuring our private spot on the water in the heart of Langley for twenty years, my architect-husband and I decided to 'downsize' in place. We've converted the lower level of our waterfront home to an apartment for people wanting to enjoy Langley and its surroundings as we do. My husband has retired to a life of writing and reflection and I continue to work as a consultant to non-profits and public agencies in the Northwest.

Ursula Roosen-Runge purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Ursula Roosen-Runge chose Whidbey Island

Twenty years ago we moved from Seattle to Whidbey to find a deeper sense of community. We found a village that welcomes all and pulls people in to its music, art, food, and just plain silliness whether they are here for the day or are 'old-timers.'
