Charming 4 br Gated Waterfront Estate on Acreage With Private Beach and Buoy
Adults-only vacation home with outdoor tennis court and spa tub
Private beach , hot tub, view of Mount Baker and Griffin Bay, across the street from Golf and Tennis, and even a mooring buoy! Before San Juan Island was discovered as a travel destination, Friday Harbor was a cluster of modest homes on a few central streets. When the commercial area began to expand, two historic homes were moved south of town onto this beautiful stretch of Griffin Bay waterfront. Creatively connected by a new central living space, these historic structures now form the opposing wings of a delightful island residence. The property is located behind a gated entry, so it"s extremely private, however the golf club and tennis courts (open to the public and you can use our rackets) are just across the road, and town amenities are just 3 miles away. The landscape surrounding the home is simply gorgeous, offering 8 sunny acres of garden, grassy clearings with a badminton and croquet set you can use, ponds to explore, and a hot tub under a starlit sky. Then there is the beach! Just wander down the pathway at the shoreline to find your own sheltered pebbled cove, complete with driftwood logs. tide pools, and a dead ahead view of Mount Baker. This is where you will likely spend many hours in quiet contemplation and enjoying picnics.This beautiful waterfront is also a great spot for launching kayaks and there is even a buoy for your use. With a boat launch a few miles away, its easy to either bring your boat or rent one from town for exploring or crabbing. Those seeking to relive carefree childhood summers will love this vacation home. The older sections of the residence create a sensation of remembrance. One wing rambles through a small office into a master bedroom with a king size bed, en-suite bathroom, and large walk-in closet. Above the office is a semi-open loft with two twin beds where children and teens can snuggle up. NOTE THERE ARE LOW CEILINGS AND NON-CONFORMING STAIRS AND RAILINGS IN THIS AREA. The kitchen with breakfast nook, sitting area, 1/2 bath and laundry room are on the main level of the second wing. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed plus futon, and the second one with a double bed and one twin bed. A second bathroom with tub/shower is also on the upper level. The two older wings are separated by the living and formal dining room. The waterside windows frame incredible views of the bay, islands, gorgeous sunrises, and Mount Baker. Stretching across the entire front and side of the home is an inviting deck containing lounge and dining furniture, and a propane barbecue. The home is comfortable, attractive, and unpretentious. The atmosphere is a small step back in time, a place that children of all ages will cherish as they run barefoot in the yard, wade at the shore,play games and laugh.
