Enjoy magnificent views of the San Juan Islands and the Cascade Mountain range, from this private half acre oceanfront estate on the shores of Cordova Bay.

Originally built in 1966, and redesigned by lauded local designer Jim Greaves in 1998, the two/three bedroom main house has unsurpassed views of the water, from the luxurious living room, spacious kitchen, formal dining room, upstairs library with balcony, and walk out master bedroom featuring his and hers bathrooms. Throughout, exposed beam vaulted ceilings, cork, slate, and solid wood floors, and four fireplaces, are complemented by large double-pane windows, providing spectacular views of the Haro Strait.

The south east facing wrap around deck provides a breathtaking setting to enjoy the west coast life style, with bald eagles, otters, seals, and herons almost daily visitors.

Steps from the main house, an irreplaceable guest house, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright pupil, Hank Schubert, is perched over the ocean, on the south east corner of the property. Here, an exposed rock and concrete entry leads to an open concept living area, featuring kitchen, dining area, and living room with extensive built in storage cabinetry. The lofted bedroom provides stunning water views, and the entire space is warmed by a gas fireplace, with natural light provided by wrap around windows overlooking the beach.

A fifth bedroom/office is offered in the ensuite gatehouse.

The grounds are accompanied by a summerhouse, overlooking the Haro Strait, and wooden steps down to the beach. An easy maintenance garden, with abundant native plants, provides a stunning West Coast setting.

A most convenient location, with easy access to the ferries, airport, and downtown, only minutes away from Broadmead shopping, completes a rare opportunity.
