Ever wanted to live on a Christmas tree farm? Well, here’s your chance. Set amid the tranquil beaches and idyllic county parks of Camano Island, just an hour north of Seattle, this historical barn with an upstairs living space sits on 3.4 acres of fenced-in land, filled with towering Christmas trees.
The 2,232-square-foot gray barn is not the traditional livestock and hay-filled space you may be envisioning. Built in 1940, it is at once both rustic and modern. The ground floor is a large workshop area with sliding doors.
But the entire second floor is made up of a contemporary one-bedroom living space, equipped with its very own elevator lift. The spacious, 1,275-square-foot upper level, with its open-floor design, has vaulted ceilings beneath a brand-new metal roof, and a small deck with a nice view of the property. The space also has a washer and dryer, oven, dishwasher, two heat pumps, and, unlike the majority of its neighbors in Seattle, air conditioning.
The home sits on the north end of Camano Island. It’s near Whidbey Island, and close to the 532 state highway, which connects to the mainland.
Of course, the main perk that comes with this home is the fact that no matter what time of year, you’ll be stepping outside each day to your very own Christmas tree farm straight out of a Hallmark movie.
