Farm & Ranch
A recent print and digital edition of The Washington Post asks, “have you ever wondered what it would be like to wake up to such a breathtaking landscape every day?” To answer the question, Kathy Orton of The Post looks at 12 homes for sale near national parks around the U.S. and turns to Leslie Bergman, owner of Spring Lakes Farm, whose residence is currently listed with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty broker Sue Eller.
This storybook ranch setting sits on approximately 33 acres of fertile level land with an abundant fruit tree orchard and pastures for horse and cattle. The primary residence is a renovated 5,500 plus square foot, 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom house with a heated swimming pool, built in BBQ, gym, conference room and fenced playgrounds.
This property is a complete lifestyle: home and horses, peace and quiet, orchards and berries. This home basks in privacy although a six-minute drive takes you into the heart of Sequim. The beveled-glass, double front doors with sidelights open to oak floors with walnut trim, but frankly, you will hardly notice them. As soon as you step into the entry, the dominate feature is the amazing and unexpected view across the living room through three huge windows. The view is astonishing as you find yourself flung instantly to the far shores of Canada! A lovely fireplace creates a focal point for the living room which also features custom built-in shelves and cabinets of alder wood used throughout the home. Wainscoting skirts the coffered-ceiling library which has a wall of custom shelves and cabinetry. The floor here is hickory.
