About the Property
5 Bedroom, 4 Bath Historic Farmhouse, Character, In-ground Pool and Mt. Views.
The home is located in the countryside near the quaint town of Cashmere (approximately 15 minutes to Leavenworth and 10 minutes to Wenatchee) on a former apple orchard. Today, the grounds hold apple, plum and cherry trees, a vegetable garden and an expansive manicured lawn. The property is fully-fenced and is an incredible place for children to play. Our care-taker lives in a separate home on the property and is available for any needs you may have.
A large, private, in-ground swimming pool (seasonal) makes this the perfect place to relax.
The home is located just a few minutes from the Wenatchee River, rock climbing in the Peshastin Pinnacles, as well as the legendary mountain bike trails of Mission Creek and Devil's Gulch. There is great jogging and cycling on quiet country roads out the front door. Beautiful public tennis courts are located less than a half mile away. Skiing is available at both Mission Ridge (35 minutes) and Steven's Pass (45 minutes).
The Bavarian village of Leavenworth is just a short drive away, as is the small city of Wenatchee. Cashmere is a quiet town, and a great place to relax. It is also the home of the world famous Aplets & Cotlets candy factory and the fascinating Pioneer Village Museum.
The house has hosted families and travelers in comfort for more than a century. The master bedroom is located on the main floor with French doors opening to the pool. The second floor holds four additional bedrooms, and three more bathrooms.
The kitchen was recently remodeled with stainless steel appliances and beautiful concrete counters.
The home is heated with both central heat and classic radiators. There is a wood-burning stove in the kitchen as well as a large brick fire place in the living room. There is also central air-conditioning and ceiling fans in every bedroom.
The porch room is equipped with comfortable sofas for lounging and a large flat screen television. Cable TV and DVD/VHS player are available. Wireless internet is also available throughout the house.
Clothes washer and dryer are available for use and located in the basement.
There is a large dining room table, which seats at least ten. The dining room also holds an upright piano.
In full disclosure, this home is not new. It is well over 100 years old and with those years come many marks of character. The home is exceeding comfortable, but not luxurious. It is clean and well-kept but not flawless. Above all else, it is our home, and we are happy to share it with you.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We (Ian & Wendy) purchased this property in 2000 when we moved to Cashmere from Seattle to practice law and raise a family. Ian is a third generation Cashmere resident and we have always felt like this is our 'place.' Our life has taken many twists since this original move, but one constant has been our home. We now have four children and are working as educators in South America. Ian is the head of school at a school in Bogota, Colombia, where Wendy is also a teacher. We try and return to our home as frequently as possibly, but when we are not able to we would like to share it with others.
Why the Owner Chose Cashmere, WA, USA:
The Wenatchee Valley is a special place to us for many reasons. Individually, Ian has roots in this area, but for our entire family, this has become our center. It is the place we go to relax, to recreate in the mountains and rivers, and to spend time with family and friends. We love this home in all four seasons, whether swimming in the pool on a hot summer day, playing in the snow in winter, harvesting apples on a cool autumn day, or enjoying the beauty of apple and cherry blossoms in spring.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Our home served as a B&B for many years and is well-equipped for long weekend or week of relaxing and recreation. The combination of unique character it possesses as one of the first homes in the valley, along with the benefits of the large lawns and swimming pool make every visitor feel at home.
