Sit beside Manzanita Bay, either back within your gated 6.23 acres, or down by your deep water dock. With that much land and 213 feet of low-bank shoreline you don’t have to worry about bumping elbows with neighbors. It is a Street of Dreams property from 1991, and has been in the family for generations (which suggests something else was on the land prior to 1991 or they were short generations.) It is now listed at $3,200,000, the price of privacy, luxury, and moorage.
The design is Northwest Contemporary, unassuming yet well executed. The house spreads out rather than reaches up, though there are at least two stories. Inside, it is a three bedroom, three bathroom, 3,644 square foot house with a mix of formal without being fussy, a mix of modern and comfortable. Windows define many of the spaces, because why obscure such a view. Their layout and the way the ceilings step around them distinguishes the design from just another wall of windows. A subtle and pervasive style.
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and possibly butcher block counters, a choice that is uncommon, yet practical. The master suite has a jetted tub for luxuriating while enjoying yet another great view, and a glass block shower for something quicker.
The landscaping is Northwest traditional, tall trees over rhododendrons, all marching down to the water and a bulkhead that clearly marks the boundary. Sailors will appreciate a deep water dock in a protected harbor. Whether you intend to cruise in your sailboat or skip the ferry and power your way over to Seattle, being able to walk to your boat is a valuable convenience.
