Lounge in a LaConner Victorian with a pool

A heated indoor pool on a winter day, ah

When you shop makes a difference. Hearing about an indoor pool in August may seem like retreating too far from nature. In January, well...

The house is beautiful, but the pool’s the thing. Swimming pools in the Northwest are better when they’re heated. Put one indoors and it becomes a decadent luxury in January. Wrap it in a pool building that is a fine example of tasteful yet functional architecture and it becomes an accomplishment in style. Put a sunroom beside it and have a bit of summer throughout the year. And if that’s not hot enough for you, there’s a hot tub, too.

About the house, it is a modest though well-made two story Victorian. Because it was built in 1991 a few things may be different. It still has the classic color scheme of a bold color for the siding with white trim. A wrap-around porch serves the front door and along one side of the house. A chance to lounge out of the traffic flow. The peaked roof isn’t as towering as some that reached for height to get a better view from a widow’s walk, but it captures the character.

Inside, there are two master suites plus two more bedrooms. The suites shift the mix of bathrooms to two full baths, a three-quarter bath, and two half baths. Are you keeping track of all of that porcelain?

With 4,574 square feet of space, expect some larger rooms through the rest of the house, unless a lot of that is counting for the pool house. Also expect a mix of modern and traditional. Rooms with fixtures and appliances are more modern. Bedrooms and other living spaces are more traditional with wood trim, exposed beams, and a few colorful accents.

Being in La Conner means being close to restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, a marina, and a relaxed tourist culture. Maybe that extra master suite and the spa-like pool are draws for a vacation rental. The price for the property with many options is $700,000. Compared to Seattle’s prices, that sound relaxing to someone who doesn’t have to commute.
