Stunning Whidbey Island waterfront home on private beach

Welcome to The Bleachers.

This stunning, brand new Whidbey Island home sits on the sand, and has sweeping water views of Saratoga Passage and surrounding islands. The home is part of a century old private beach community.

This beach home is magazine-cover worthy and ready to accommodate a large group, extended family, or just a couple for a romantic getaway.

Highlights:

- Waterfront on private sandy beach

- Western water and sunset views

- Sleeps up to 14

- Large gourmet kitchen opens to outdoors

- Large view decks and porches

- French doors throughout

- Outdoor Bar

- Guest house and bunk room

- Pool table, high speed Wi-fi Internet, Xbox, 4 TVs with cable, Blue Ray

- 3 gas fireplaces

- 4 sit-on Kayaks available

- Adjacent to sandlot play field, basketball court and swing

- Top-grade everything

- Near many parks, attractions and beach towns

This home opens onto a sandlot play-field at the center of the community, and a private beach. Walk up the short boardwalk to the expansive front porch with French doors that open wide to the fresh sea air.

Slide open the giant bi-folding window to connect the chef's kitchen to the outdoor bar where guests can watch the waves and gorgeous sunsets from their barstools. Crack crab at the outside countertop or gather inside around the massive butcher block in the middle of the large gourmet kitchen. Everything the chef or baker needs is right at your fingertips and ready to formally serve up to sixteen people.

Enjoy your meal at the central dining table, or slide up to the island on one of four bar stools (That's inside dining for 16 plus 6 more at the outside bar). Guests can comfortably enjoy world-renowned local seafood such as Penn Cove mussels and Dungeness crab while enjoying sunset views over the water.

Ready to enjoy the beach? It's right outside your door. Enjoy over a mile of sandy tidelands. Then, rinse your sandy feet in the home's warm outside shower.

Need to do a little shopping or enjoy a cafe? Drive, walk along the beach, or kayak to the quaint beach town of Langley. Langley is 1.5 miles by car.

Relax on one of the outside decks, or in the Adirondack chairs sitting in the sandy front yard. Enjoy watching for whales, Bald Eagles, and lots of bunnies around the house.

During the winter, you can watch a storm crash over the driftwood logs, or cozy-up to one of the fireplaces inside. Build a puzzle, play a game, or watch football on the 4K TV. Grab a book and drift away in one of the window seats, or make yourself at home in the oversized slipcover sofa for an afternoon nap.

The kids will enjoy the up-stairs family room, where they can watch TV, play games or just get away. This family room area is open to below, so they can still be part of the party. There's high-speed internet and large desk area with room for your own laptop.

Slide open the barn doors to to the attached guest house, bunk room, and pool table. Kids will love the bunk room with built-in extra long bunk beds, each with reading light and USB plug. The pool table adjusts from regulation height down to a kids table height. The pool table converts to a game table, so this is the ultimate teen (and parent) hangout.

The attached guest house is complete with living area and 4K TV, queen-size Murphy bed and kitchenette with beverage fridge. A 3/4 bath with large shower is tucked under the stairs. Enjoy the stone outdoor fireplace in the breezeway just outside the French doors.

The master suite has a King size bed, fireplace, TV, walk in closet and en suite bathroom with oversize shower and double sink. Open the French doors to enjoy the expansive view deck and take in the sunset.

The guest bedroom opens to the same large deck overlooking the beach and play-field. Take in the view from the comfort of the queen size bed, or climb the ladder to the bonus sleeping loft (a kid's favorite!). A full bath is just next door.

Need to sleep more guests? The sofa in the living room and loft each pull out to a very comfortable queen size bed.

Take a walk around Sandy Point, or look at the historic beach homes by bicycle, scooter or skateboard.

Visit the shops and restaurants in nearby Langley, or explore the rest of Whidbey, the longest island on the West Coast.

Check out historic forts, seaside towns, and spectacular parks.

Go over the breathtaking Deception Pass bridge or take a short ferry ride to explore everything the Seattle area has to offer.

This home is located just 1hr and 30 minutes from downtown Seattle, including a fifteen minute ferry ride (Ferries leave every 30 minutes from Mukilteo to Clinton, check Washington State ferry schedule. No reservations required).

This is a beautiful beach home in a magical location.

About Mark Jones

As professional designers, my wife and I spent years imagining the perfect beach home, and then our dream came true and we got the chance to build it. It came out better than we could have possibly imagined! My wife loves opening up the giant kitchen window and serving guests at the outside bar. I love just sitting on the large front porch with my morning cup of coffee and watching the people and sailboats go by. One recent morning a pod of orcas went by. Simply breathtaking!

Mark Jones purchased this house in 2015

Why Mark Jones chose Whidbey Island

This is a once in a lifetime property. We waited years for a property in this community to become available (they rarely leave the original owners' families). We consider this to be the best beach community in Washington State, and we were fortunate enough to build our home here. We can't be here all the time, so we are making our home available for others to enjoy!

What makes this house unique

This home sits at the center of the community, opening onto both the sandlot play field and sandy beach with stunning water and sunset views. The indoor/outdoor living is second to none. Kids and adults alike scooter or bicycle by on their way to the beach, paddle boards, kayaks or to jump off the pier. It's like your stepping into a bygone era. A dream come true.

Magical Whidbey Island House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home on Whidbey Island for a family reunion and birthday celebration for 14 people. This is the perfect place for large or small gatherings, and the ground floor guest space was perfect for my 85 year old father. My family loved it so much we called it our "Fantasy Island Weekend". The island offers something for everyone, from mountain biking to kayaking and paddle boarding, wine tasting and beach combing. The secluded private beach where the house is located is picture perfect as well. We loved the great room of the house and kitchen was fully equipped and fabulous for cooking together, plus the big dining table fit all of us for family meals. The details of this home are something from a magazine. It is form and function at its best. I cannot recommend this lovely home enough!
