What to do if you like Seattle and Vancouver, but don't want to live downtown in either? Live in a 4 bedroom, 3.25 bath log home that is so well designed that it won a "Home of the Year" award from Timber Home Living. There's a lot of logs that went into this $2,995,000 house, which was originally listed at $3,500,000 a few months ago. The excellent woodwork is massive and matched by the stone work. If it isn't some uncommonly clear trunk of a tree angling across the ceiling to tie into another uncommonly clear trunk of a tree, then the thing that caught your eye might be the river rock chimneys and support pillars. The roof is a series of three ever-increasing pitches that create incredible cathedral ceilings inside; including in the master bedroom - a space not normally designed with enough volume to accommodate basketball hoops and mini-drone flights. The property is about two acres, with 300 feet of oceanfront; so, the views and the tranquility are definitely fitting into the nature of a resort. That's a good thing too, because the property is part of the Semiahmoo Resort, with all of its amenities, just in case you wanted to do something like leave the house.
