About the Property

This Apartment On The Upper Floor And Looks Out High Over The Bay

This was the quintessential bachelor pad, ( my husband lived here when we first met) It is a stunning place on the very top of our building that was built 1908. This area was originally used as a billiard room, there is a wonderful bedroom at the front of the house and a kitchen to the back. The landing is reminiscent of a ships landing and overlooks the canopy of some beautiful trees. The front yard was recently renovated and we hosted a wedding here and sat 50 people outside. We are close to a beach, boardwalk and the university area where there are lots of trails to walk.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: My husband purchased this property because he fell in love with it while he was on a walk in the neighborhood. I moved to Bellingham 2011 and we live in the main unit. I took one of the rental units ( the building was a single family home and had been converted to accommodate nuns that worked in a nearby hospital in the 1940's) and renovated it, which is what we use as our vacation rental. This past summer we renovated the upper apartment, the crows nest I like to call it. I love meeting people from all over the United States. It is always amazing to meet people and see how similar we are, and celebrate the culture, share ideas, and be the host to others who are new in the area. I moved here from Vancouver B.C. Canada, and am anxious to meet people from around the U. S. to get to know my new country better. I have been to many cities in the world and love the Pacific Northwest.

Why the Owner Chose South Hill, Bellingham, WA, USA:
This is a historical property on the bank over looking the bay. it was a single family home and was on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens in 1908. The article said it has all the modern convenience.... in the 40's is was divided in to suites for the nurses that were working in a hospital nearby. The building has all the charm and character of a building of its age. Radiator heating, this unit has an old gas stove, and beautiful leaded glass windows, as you can see in the photo. This is a very romantic place. I moved to Bellingham in 2011 and we decided to try a vacation rental in one suite. People love staying here, the view and the apartments are very unique. This past summer we started on vacation rental #2.
