Welcome to this Small Private Whidbey Island Home!
This one is set near the Cottage that is also listed with this web site.
It is set among the trees on 3 acres on beautiful Whidbey Island, 2 miles from the town of Freeland (Antique stores, grocery store, post office, etc., etc.). About 5 miles from my favorite beach"Double Bluff" that holds stunning views of the Cascade Mountains, Mt. Rainier, and the Olympic Mountains with miles of walking.
The Small House is a cozy light filled and airy space with its many windows and skylights. It is meant to be an adult getaway.
The bedroom has opening windows and a skylight over the bed for a more spacious feel and to look at the stars; it has the feeling like you are sleeping in a tree (website hidden) has a comfy queen size bed and a writing desk and chair. There is plenty of closet space in case you decide to stay longer.
The regular sized kitchen is equipped with a large fridge, a gas range, a toaster oven, a coffee maker, a toaster, an electric tea kettle, all the dishes and basic condiments (salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, sugar, tea, coffee). It has a granite and a butcher top counter.
There are colorful Italian tile in the shower, and dark green with gold flecks “Ubatuba” granite on the bathroom floor.
In the living room, you may lounge on the inviting 16 foot window bench seat to take in the open forest view through the 13' window, or enjoy the WiFi to write those long due letters on your computer.
Have your morning breakfast in the sun room or on the spacious deck and listen to the birds.
Either way, this super quiet romantic place for two will leave you nurtured and nourished by its splendid green views and quiet nature surrounds.
I love how quiet it is here, and how dark it gets at night because we are far away from city lights. Each neighbor has 3 to 5 acres of property, and from mine I can see a little bit of the home of one of them.
I like that it is only about 2 miles to Freeland where I can find the grocery store and post office as well as some stores for treasure hunting or a cafe to sip coffee in on a rainy day.
In August of 1996 I found this lovely property, that before me was owned by Jim, a literal hermit.
Jim hand dug the 300' drive way, he build the Sears kit home, he knew the deer by generation, and he never cut a tree; he burned presto logs. Jim lived there since 1963 until his death in 1995.
Since then, I brought in power and telephone, added the bedroom and sun room as well as the decks, and totally re-did the inside of this home, and created several gardens.
I shall always be grateful to Jim, for having set up this property in such a wonderful way.
