Perfectly perched upon nearly a half-acre, life at Whidbey Island Waterfront inspires, as 90 feet of beachfront meets a chic, coastal residence. Step into open concept living, where bright hardwood floors give way to walls of windows and a contemporary atmosphere that lives as much for the comfort of day-to-day life as it does for grand holiday entertaining. A large living space is anchored by a fireplace for chilly autumn evenings and thoughtful appointments in the kitchen ignite culinary creations, from quartz countertops and custom cabinetry to stainless steel appliances. A modern fixture in the dining area complements the kitchen’s aesthetic with unforgettable ocean views. An elevated wraparound deck is the perfect space for a morning meditation with a cup of coffee or melting the day’s stress away. A spacious main level master suite exudes peace with muted tones, a sitting area, and an ensuite complete with dual sinks and stylish subway tile.
The lower level offers two additional bedrooms and a media room for watching the big game complete with a fireplace, wet bar, and doors that open to the recreation that outdoor living at the water’s edge affords. Invite guests out onto a covered patio for a cocktail party, start a game of croquet across the ample backyard or step down to the oceanfront firepit and warm up with gooey s’mores. Meander along the beach amidst driftwood and seashells or launch a kayak for a day of adventuring atop the waves in a unique Whidbey Island lifestyle. Situated just 30 miles north of Seattle, Whidbey Island is the fourth largest island in the state and was once home to many Native American tribes, from the Lower Skagit and Swinomish to the Suquamish and Snohomish.
First explored in the late 18th century by Captain George Vancouver, Whidbey Island was named after Joseph Whidbey, a Royal Navy officer who was first to circumnavigate the island. The northern end of Whidbey Island is heavily influenced by the presence of the Naval Air Station, whereas the southern is largely rooted in tourism, local businesses and the arts. Many writers, performers and visual artists call Whidbey Island home for its thriving arts scene and cultural offerings. Residents and visitors alike participate in annual festivals including the Whidbey Island Kite Festival, Penn Cove Mussel Festival, and the Fourth of July Parade, among others. Though it feels remote, many of the island’s residents commute to nearby Everett or Seattle using the ferry system between Clinton and Mukilteo.
