A solarium is a greenhouse for people, and this $3,995,000 waterfront home on San Juan Island has a luxurious one. That's not a surprise considering the other luxuries that are part of the 3 bedroom, 4.5 bath house. It sits on Friday Harbor's waterfront, which makes a deep water dock an obvious entry for yachties who want to visit without taking the ferry. The property is around the corner from the main harbor, not that there's much noise to avoid in the islands. With such a prime location it makes sense that there are lots of windows; and because there are three floors, the 5,802 square feet are divided up enough that few rooms are far from a view. Decks and patios cascade down to the steep bank that goes with having deep moorage. Inside, the light walls and ceilings keep the spaces bright, even during the drizzly days that probably inspired the solarium. The hearths are large and ornate. The master bath is bright marble and tile. And, there's enough room available for a gym with mirrored walls; and a hot tub gazebo, which is one of the few places where darker, richer woods and flooring dominate. People move to the islands to get away. With a house this big with so much to offer, you can get away and forget to go much farther than a walk into town for more food and wine.
