Find Serenity in This $2.2M San Juan Solarium and Sanctuary


If moving to the San Juans doesn't provide enough solitude and serenity, spend $2,200,000 and get 36 acres to wrap around your house. The 4 bedrooms and 4.25 baths are enough for a family, or someone who gets lots of guests. That may also explain the double-sized laundry with doubled washers and dryers. The guests are probably a given because the house is meant to be seen and shown considering the simply classical lines inside and out - and the great expanses of marble and glass that must catch the sun in the banana belt that is the islands. One room in particular maximizes the light by being a cross between a greenhouse and solarium, windows for walls and ceiling, abutted to the house and the garage. With the acreage outside and 4,557 square feet inside, you may be buying a sanctuary on the island, but it will be one with more than enough room to roam and entertain. If you get outside, Roche Harbor is nearby for your yacht or float plane. The whales swim by in Haro Strait and might encourage you to get to the shore to see some mammals that figured out millennia ago that a sanctuary is something to cherish.
