Stunning sunsets over the waters of Puget Sound, the San Juan’s and dramatic views of the Olympics highlight this masterfully designed property. Situated on a 1/3+ acre of prime hillside land, this grand residence is a sanctuary with towering trees, rocky outcroppings and adjoins the Anacortes Land Trust Conservation area - it feels like living on acreage! A rare find with water and sunset views from nearly every room!
This home was over a decade in the making! Owners purchased the land in 2003, when marine heights was in it's infancy and got to choose the prime homesite. Top of the hill, unobstructable view, level and private - all the hallmarks buyers are looking for in the location for the "forever" home. You just won't find another home where so much time a effort went into the impeccable and thoughtful design.
Main floor features walls of glass surrounding the great room framing the view of Puget Sound from every angle. Boasting the largest gourmet kitchen imaginable, the island itself is an entire slab of granite nearly 10' x 6', in a 4 slab kitchen! Main floor features a spacious guest room with closet and adjoins a ¾ bath. This could allow you the option of living entirely on the main floor! Office has glass doors opening up to the expansive view through the dining area. Lower level features a media room, and a dedicated wine cellar with custom coved ceiling inspired by the giant wine barrels of european vintners. Also, a boulder millions of years old, sitting in this location since the ice age has been retained to help naturally moderate the wine room temperature. The only circular driveway in the neighborhood welcomes visitors and leads to the large three car garage – complete with separate shop area with storage.
The bedroom level features 3 oversized bedrooms, including two guest suites each with walk-in baths and walk-in closets. The master suite features a sweeping view of the San Juan Islands, the bay, the Olympic Mountains and glorious Northwest sunsets! Master bedroom is roomy with sitting area complete with fireplace. Master Bath features heated tile floors with wood plank grain, jetted tub, locker room shower and even a heated towel rack.
Outside areas are as special as the inside with a grand covered living room with a fire pit with flames emanating from the stone on site, perfectly private from all. Backyard features a naturally stunning bouldering wall for the explorers in the family as well as a trail from your property that connects to over 600 acres of adjoining Conservation Land. A seasonal creek gurgles alongside the outside patio, making for an enjoyable respite for wildlife and owners alike. A large flagstone patio flanks the south side of the home providing a sunny retreat from which to enjoy the long summer sunsets as well as the endless views of Puget Sound and distant islands. This grand residence is the complete package and is here ready for you to call it home.
