It’s the season for dreaming of a home on the water, with the summer now fully upon us. It’s also the season for touring some homes on the water, with Windermere’s annual waterfront home tour this weekend, June 24 and 25.
The homes are located throughout Western Washington, from the San Juans to Fox Island—so while you could try visiting them all in two days, it might be hard without a teleporter. But for planning purposes, most of the homes that are having open houses are doing so from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday, or both. Some are still by appointment though—especially those extra-luxurious or harder-to-reach getaways.
Our picks range from the tour’s cheapest, $299,000 for a tiny cabin on Cypress Island, to $4.8 million for a 1922 home on 225 feet of Bainbridge Island waterfront. They also range from right in the city to, again, a tiny, remote cabin on Cypress Island.
(The most expensive home on the tour go up to a whopping 20 million for a nearly hundred-acre estate with a runway in the San Juans—formerly owned by an Amazon executive.)
