About

This home inspires contemplation and creation. Enjoy 4 private acres surrounded by cedars and hemlocks with a peak-a-boo view of the Sound and Cascade mountains in a new (2018), fully furnished, 3 bedroom home. You will be ~ 2 miles from the walk-on / drive-on Clinton/Mukilteo Ferry, which will whisk you on a quick journey across the sound, surrounded by the Cascades, the Olympics and our resident orca whales. The main land offers access to the Sounder train or to the freeway for your adventures in Seattle or Everett and beyond. At home, you will enjoy all the riches of Island Life in this peaceful space amid meadows and forests. The house has an open kitchen, dining room, living room floor plan, perfect for letting the sun and trees in and peaks of wild life outside. There is one large office with two desks, 2 full bathrooms with two shower heads, and a soaking tub in the master, two bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet and a king size bed. Enjoy the second sitting room or convert it to a bedroom with two twin pull-out couches, also with a walk-in closet. There is a large laundry room, large pantry, a carport, a 1 car garage, a back patio with grill and pizza oven, and a fence-enclosed garden. Expect frequent sightings of deer, heron, and owls, a symphony of frogs among the stars, and goldfish in the aquafer pond. Adventures await on the island and off!
