Exceptional location with 180-degree sweeping view of the Salish Sea, Canadian and U.S. islands, and mountains. Spacious property on a dead-end private road near Eastsound. Sunlight permeates the home the entire day, culminating in a tremendous glistening effect at sunset due to its unique closeness to the sea. Kids will enjoy playing among the grassy hillside fruit trees and adorable playhouse. Lavender gardens draw butterflies and hummingbirds that add to the magical setting.
From your doorstep, explore exciting beachcombing and soothing walks in the majestic Orcas forest. From the home and shoreline, you will enjoy the prolific wildlife for which the San Juans are famous. Eagles dive to the water from their resting places in the majestic trees that frame the house. Sea otters try to claim our unique and picturesque beach stairway. Comb the beach with fascinating tide pools, kayak to a tiny island 300 yards offshore, or bring your own boat and tie to our mooring buoy and explore our rugged bay by boat. Our fascinating bay is one of the richest marine spawning and fishing grounds - truly a crabbing, fishing, and kayaking destination. When the Orca whales occasionally pay a visit, the birds and entire marine family, with porpoises, puffins, and seals, create an unforgettable splash!
Picturesque Eastsound village, just one and a half miles away, offers restaurants, high-quality shopping, a farmers market, and a music festival. Fishing and whale watching tours, as well as kayak and bicycle rentals, are found here. Camp Orkila, golf, and farm visits are nearby. Beyond Eastsound, Rosario Resort offers a charming spa, and Moran State Park, with its hiking, swimming lakes, and lookout at Mt. Constitution (with views of Orcas Island and the entire San Juan Islands chain) cannot be missed!
