Only 7 years old this  home offers views from every window.  Vintage sinks, butcher block counter tops and bead board cabinets with glass knobs give this home a classic farm house feel with all the modern amenities. Additional features include handicap size doors and hallway, LED lights and entry through the mud/laundry room . Home has a 5 star energy efficiency rate and is already certified with the state.

100% off the grid, this property runs on 3 solar panels with an Outback solar system and a back up Honda generator. Kitchen range is propane and there are 8, 10 gallon propane tanks for easy rotation and refill. Heat is provided by a Kuma stove that doesn’t require any electricity. There are 3 above ground fuel tanks (1 for gas for the generator and 2 for oil for the Kuma stove). Cell phone and internet access are best with Verizon but also available through T Mobile and GCI. There is limited coverage with Sprint.

Water is collected from the roof/gutters into a 2500 gallon tank which is in an enclosed storage room attached to the house.

New in 2012 with the replacement of the original structure.

An abundance of Eagles frequent the cove, as well as heron and deer. Whales, sea lions, sea otters and mink have all been see from the living room window! Halibut and salmon fishing are just a quick boat ride away.

The possibilities are endless with this lovely retreat. Enjoy the quiet solitude of life on an island. Live the adventure of off the grid living.
