Dock, Pool, Private Beach and 1200 ‘of Exquisite San Juan Island Waterfront!
Nestled between a sapphire sea and ten acres of emerald green forest, Topaz sparkles like a jewel.
This secluded property is simply exceptional. At the shoreline, a 180 degree vista captures Shaw and Orcas Islands, deep blue waters, and the snow-capped peak of Mt. Baker, directly ahead. The incomparable outlook also includes a private beach, passing sailboats and yachts, ferries headed to Victoria, sea lions, seals, and even the occasional whale. The spectacular views will beckon guests to BBQ, dine, and lounge outdoors on generous wrap-around decking. You’ll also want to spend time exploring the shoreline where there are picnic spots on a pebbled beach rimmed with drift logs and rocky ledges.
The glistening lap pool will be appreciated on warm days (there will be an additional $300 charge if you wish it heated during your stay.) Guests may also utilize the dock to tie up kayaks, canoes, dinghies, and smaller boats, however, the channel can be rough so boats exceeding 25’ are not advised at the dock.
Families of all ages will find Topaz a fabulous vacation destination, but as the home offers 4 bedrooms with 4 private baths, it’s also perfect for couples traveling together. The ambience is casual and relaxed inside, and the wood-paneled interiors are filled with light and volume. Whimsical objects and paintings line the walls, many collected from local artists, and there's an abundant supply of books and games to enjoy while in residence. The dining table seats ten and there is also a game table for four in the living room alcove. The kitchen is expansive, well equipped for meal preparation, and features a large work island, counter seating, and a sun-filled breakfast nook. (The window seat in the nook can also provide a sleeping space for an overflow guest.)
Three bedrooms are on the main level. The master bedroom opens onto a private deck and offers a king size bed and ensuite bathroom with dual vanities, jetted tub, and walk in shower. A second bedroom offers a queen size bed, private bath with shower, and wood burning fireplace. The spacious third bedroom features a wall of shelving and desk that can double as an office. In this room, a queen size murphy bed pulls easily from the wall and there’s also an over-size window-seat that can provide another comfortable sleeping space. The second, smaller window seat might also be used as a bed for a small child. A bath with shower and the laundry are privately located in the hallway leading to this room. The fourth bedroom, located upstairs, offers two twin beds and a private bath with shower.
The custom home is capped by a steeple salvaged from a racetrack and the entry doors were transported from a country church in France (or so the rumor goes.)
Topaz is conveniently located less than five miles of the Town of Friday Harbor at the end of an unpaved, private, road. Those wishing to vacation in a classic San Juan Island setting will find Topaz a true gem.TripAdvisor property ID 1889334...Read more
