This spacious two-story walk out waterfront home is situated on over 10 acres of private beach-front property with views of both the Cascade and the Olympic mountains. Extensive remodel in 2015 brings all the modern updates without losing the vintage details. There is no need to wait in long ferry lines with this house. It’s conveniently located on the north end of Whidbey Island accessible by ferry OR the Deception Pass Bridge. A huge plus if you don’t want to rely on the ferry system.
This 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home sleeps 12 comfortably. The master bedroom on the main floor has a king bed and its own full bathroom. The other main floor bedroom has a queen bed and a separate full bathroom. There are two bedrooms in the light-filled basement. One has a queen bed and the other has two bunk beds (sleeps 4 kids). A queen size sleeper sofa rounds out the beds in this spacious house. The large deck off the main floor offers plenty of space for outdoor dining and recreation. The basement opens right up to the large backyard which includes a picnic table, fire pit for campfires and smores, horseshoe pits, two person hammock, and a staircase right down to the private beach. A kayak room houses every size imaginable of beach walking boots and towels for your convenience. Two individual kayaks and one large canoe provide hours of fun on the water. If you have a boat, bring it! We have plenty of room for a trailer in the driveway and a public boat launch is located a mere half mile down the beach from us. There's lots of great fishing and crabbing just in front of the house.
The kitchen is equipped with everything to make the most delicious gourmet dinner and a large outdoor grill stands ready for your BBQ needs. (Don't forget you can dig for fresh clams on the beach in front of the house. Seasonal permits are available in town.) The town of Oak Harbor is 10 minutes away and offers shopping, dining, and a weekly farmer’s market. The quaint town of Coupeville is a 20 minute drive and Deception Pass Bridge, with its spectacular views and hiking trails, is also a 20 minute drive. If a day-trip to the San Juan’s is of interest, the Anacortes Ferry is approximately 40 minutes by car. Park for the day, walk on the ferry, and be in the islands in under an hour. The perfect day trip!
Our cozy home, with its original 1970’s retro fireplace, is a perfect place to enjoy every season. You can’t help but unwind while watching the whales, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagles, otters and seals from every room of this open and light filled spot. It’s ideal for your next vacation or holiday!
Modern conveniences including two flat screen TV’s with cable, high speed internet access, washer and dryer, and a large selection of games and books round out the offerings in this home.
