This lovely year round home is just a few hours drive and a short ferry ride from Seattle. Located in the sunbelt of the Washington State Peninsula, on the Straits of Juan De Fuca on a long strip of sandy beach, natural beauty abounds. The views from the front and back side of the home are spectacular and include the Olympic Mountain Range, wetlands with many rare species of birds, the Straits of Juan De Fuca, Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse with Victoria B.C. in the distance, Mount Baker, the San Juan Islands and Whidbey Island.
There are many options for great walks and bike rides, as well as kayaking and hiking in the area.
The beach house is a year round pleasure as well. Summers speak for themselves, but imagine winter storms in the great room, waves crashing outside! A crackling fire in the fireplace. Winter walks on a windy day.The home offers several great places to curl up and read a book or play a game, and holidays are especially memorable in this setting!
Great Room Plus: Having both a family room and great room, with pocket doors that can be closed for privacy, allows the home to accommodate large parties. It also offers a feeling of intimacy for smaller parties. The family room and eating space have excellent views, and they connect well with the kitchen to for easy conversation between the spaces. The home was architecturally designed for flexibility, so it feels gracious and intimate at the same time.
Views and Beach: With 200 feet of sandy beach front, the views are amazing, and from almost every room. You can see four light houses and Victoria B.C. in the distance at night. Your day view is 360 degrees. It includes the Olympic Mountain Range as a back drop to the wetlands on one side, and the Straits of Juan De Fuca, the Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse, Mt. Baker, Whidbey Island, and miles of beach on the other. Bald Eagles 'hang out' in number (we've counted up to 17 together at one time) on the beach at low tide. The home includes two large decks. The front deck is a great place to sit and view the mountains and soak up the afternoon sun, and the back deck overlooks the beach.
The beach house is a family vacation get away owned by my sister, her family and myself and my family. We spend time there on a regular basis, which we believe makes the house feel more like a home vs a rental. We love the diversity of the Peninsula, the sandy walking beach steps away from the home, the views and the peaceful atmosphere.
It's a wonderful place to slow down and get away from it all!
Miles of beautiful beach right in front of the home, amazing 360 degree views, a wonderful floor plan and privacy designed into the property both inside and out.
