Property description

Come and enjoy our custom built home in beautiful Birch Bay, WA.!! Nature-lovers will enjoy the wildlife, beautiful coastal shore, nearby Birch Bay State Park all within walking distance. The shallow warm water, sandy beach and wide tide flats make Birch Bay the most popular clamming beach in Washington state.

Sip your morning coffee on the rooftop patio as you watch the sunrise over Mt. Baker. Take a 5 minute walk to the beach where you can go for a peaceful stroll along the waterfront, go clamming/crabbing/salmon fishing (in season), swimming, kite-flying, or beach combing.

Kayak on the sparkling waters at sunset, cycle around the bay, swim in the warmest waters in the Salish Sea, or just relax with a good book as you watch the eagles soar above.

Come home and enjoy the amazing views of Birch Bay, the Gulf Islands, and the snow-capped Canadian mountain peaks as you prepare a delicious meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Then relax with a glass of wine as you watch the spectacular nightly display of color over the bay from the spacious third floor living room or from the rooftop patio.

Great dining within walking distance, as well as family run famous C Shop where you can walk for an ice cream cone or melt-in-your-mouth homemade chocolates!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: About us and our home: Andy, an American citizen, and Linda, a Canadian, have travelled extensively and chose Birch Bay to build their home because of its quiet spectacular beauty, as well as its proximity to Vancouver, Seattle, Bellingham, and Mt. Baker. It is close to many recreational activities and breathtaking outdoor activities. Our home was lovingly built to optimize the amazing view potential. As we are both nearing retirement and have plans to travel, we are happy to share our home with you while we are off exploring other parts of the world. We hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do!
