North Shore Reef-Looking for Orcas Island beachfront, spectacular views, 4+ bedrooms, 3+ baths, and within walking distance of town? Not many vacation homes offer all this, but North Shore Reef has these amenities and more. This spacious and attractive home is simply the PERFECT choice for family vacations and couples traveling together.
Just listed, the home is now being refurnished for your comfort. Additional photos will be available in early spring but don’t wait to make your reservation - homes like this book early! Just call our office for additional property details. (The photos provided are 'in process' -more to be provided after complete delivery & setup.)
The property is conveniently located just one mile north of Eastsound Village (just around the corner you can pick up a level path for an easy walk to shops and restaurants.) When you open the front door, you’ll be greeted with a startling vista of sky, sea, and mountains through the large picture windows on the waterside of the home. Straight ahead, you have a view of Sucia Island and in the distance, the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Cascade range rise above neighboring islands. When the tide is high, you may see passing whales and dolphins in the deep water channel; when the tide is low, the sandy offshore reef emerges from the sea to attract a variety of marine life, including birds, eagles, and otters.
The 3200 square foot residence is designed for casual and comfortable living. The entry, living room, and dining room are oriented toward the waterfront as is the terrace where you’ll lounge, BBQ , dine alfresco, and bask in glorious sunsets. A partially fenced lawn with firepit is on the western side of the property and a stairway leads down the bluff and onto the pebble beach where you can contemplate the splendor of nature from the shoreline.
Indoors, there’s plenty of space for the entire group to cook, dine, and enjoy their time together. Meal preparation takes place in a large, well-stocked, kitchen that features contemporary appliances, a work island, and a breakfast nook; the dining room offers seating around an expandable table. You’ll find a bedroom with a king bed just down the hall on the main level. Adjacent to this master bedroom is a bathroom with shower as well as an office/den equipped with a daybed suitable for a child or extra guest. For flexibility, there is a door that enables you to enclose these three rooms into a private suite. A laundry room with extra toilet and sink are also located just off the kitchen on the main level.
Upstairs, overlooking the living room, is a loft with a sectional sofa and TV for watching television or movies. The loft separates two upper bedroom wings. One wing contains a bathroom with tub/shower and bedroom that is large enough to contain both a queen sized bed and twin/trundle. Bedrooms 3 & 4 are on the opposite side of the loft and they share a third bathroom with tub/shower. The larger bedroom also contains both a queen sized bed plus a twin/trundle; the smaller offers a queen size bed.
North Shore Reef is destined to become one of the most popular vacation homes on Orcas Island and you can be one of the first to enjoy it during the Summer of 2014!
