Waterfront, beachfront, 170 feet of Puget Sound for one side of your property, and for less than a million, $699,000. It happens on Camano Island.
Some properties are more about the land than the house. When checking out places with beaches you can be forgiven for walking right past the house and heading straight to the water. For this 0.39 acre lot, that means no-bank or low-bank down to a sandy beach. Check with the neighbors for clamming, crabbing, and fishing opportunities. Wave at the whales that use Saratoga Passage as a feeding ground and quiet commuting route. Back from the beach is a white fence that lines the lawn, some gardens, fruit trees, and an impressive madrone tree.
The lawn wraps around to the land side of the house where there’s a long drive past mature trees on the flat lot. Somewhere around there is a dog run, too.
Decks and patios are obvious additions. Why be at the beach if you can’t sit outside and enjoy it? A well-established wisteria will provide blooms and shade, as the seasons allow.
Inside, find two bedrooms, one bathroom in a 930 square foot one story that was built in 1950. That’s also the listed remodel date (at least according to Zillow), but some updates undoubtedly happened. Your lifestyle will decide whether white, simple, and functional is fine or whether you demand stainless steel and quartz in your kitchen.
As for commuting, well, if there’s no traffic Everett is only 45 minutes away. A trip to Bellingham takes an hour. Of course if your job is something that only requires the internet, maybe your commute will be enviable and short.
