953 LOPEZ ROAD  |  OFFERED AT $1,495,000

Spectacular western views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains from this dreamy 5 acres on Lopez Island in the San Juan Archipelago.  With approximately 250 feet of waterfront, this peaceful retreat - a former “Met Home of the Month” - offers privacy, beautiful woods, sunny gardens, grassy fields, a sophisticated log home and separate studio with lofted guest quarters.  The main home features an open floor plan with five pairs of French doors leading to expansive decks for summer entertaining and enjoyment.  The central fireplace highlights the living room and provides a cozy haven for winter evenings.  The cook’s kitchen includes stainless appliances and counters, a gas four-burner stove and seating for casual dining.  A larger formal dining table is located near three pairs of French doors – opening to the deck and view beyond.  The upper level is flexible space and includes the master bedroom and a second bedroom/den area – both with beautiful decks, plus another alcove - filled with light, currently used as an artist’s workspace.  

The separate studio, with soaring ceilings and abundant skylights offers a wonderful extended living space, workspace or private guest quarters.  A lofted sleeping area overlooks the main room with double-height ceilings – airy and spacious.  French doors open to the view and a picturesque balcony.  A three-quarter bath, wood stove and bookshelves - which serve as a room-divider, complete this living space. The ground floor of this building offers a two-car garage, utility room, storage area and room for projects.

Other features include extensive fencing that protects established gardens and beach access via a stair path.  This property is located a short walk from Lopez Village conveniences and 10 minutes from the ferry landing.  A very special offering!

An additional parcel to the north, #2515120080, is also available for sale.  With approximately 220 feet of waterfront and 5.02 acres, this additional lot could provide future build-out potential for a larger compound.  Please inquire for more information.
