Scandinavian-inspired Camano Island home asks $474K

It’s all about the views

A 1989 two story on Camano Island’s waterfront has listed at $474,000. Evidently, it was inspired by Scandinavian designs and remodeled in 2016. The two bedroom, one and three-quarter bathroom house has been updated with stainless steel appliances, a herringbone back splash, and white maple cabinets.

They list uses for the loft, by you might redefine it as the master bedroom after you look out the windows. With a west view of Saratoga Passage and the Olympics you might want to wake up to it every day, rather than use either of the two “official” bedrooms. Okay, so there’s no closet or bathroom up there - but there is that view.

The basics remain of the 1,381 square foot house. Floor to ceiling windows, an atrium over the living and dining rooms, and a wood mantel that reaches higher than the windows were probably part of the original expression. Hardwood floors and a wood slat ceiling provide visual warmth, a contrast with the clinically clean kitchen. All of it is oriented towards the view.

With nearly a quarter of an acre that includes a bluff, you get to enjoy nature’s show without worrying about waves and tides. Much of the lot is divided into a small lawn, a driveway to a carport, and a mass of pebbles and rounded rocks that look like a beach beside the deck. At least you don’t have to mow pebbles, though you may have to weed them.
