Smuggler’s Cove is a special place on Washington’s Whidbey Island offering a peaceful view overlooking the lagoon, the Sound and the Olympics beyond. This special place at one point served as a transit point for Chinese immigrants heading for Seattle, but wanting to avoid the immigration station at Pt. Townsend.
Later the land was logged by a company called Pope & Talbot in the late 1920s or early ’30s.
The three-bedroom home was built to maximize views and blend quietly with the land and so a traditional Craftsman style was selected. The palette and materials, cedar, fir and stone, where chosen so that the home would be in harmony with its surroundings.
The home has welcomed both large and small gatherings, dazzling with its views which allow an intimate relationship with the wildlife outside. The location is ideal for spotting whales and the abundant bird life nearby.
The waterfront home has a lovely conservatory and a tasteful master suite. A guest house and studio are nestled in the landscape, and there is also an oversized garage with office.
This property is listed for $6.25 million with Windemere Real Estate and showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
