Happy Tuesday! A cozy off-the-grid!! home set in thirty acres of Pacific Northwest paradise on Sinclair Island – only accessible by boat or private plane. Would you live here??
This article in the Seattle Times illustrates the beauty and the isolation of this area:
A romantic waterfront retreat, beautiful sunsets over Orcas Island, actual orcas frolicking in the blue-green water just beyond their private beach — and not a tourist in sight: It’s a charmed life.
There are no resorts, no stores, no restaurants, no power lines, no public boat dock, no parks, no campgrounds and no paved roads on Sinclair, one of the so-called “non-ferry” islands lining the labyrinth of marine passages in the San Juans. …
Those who do choose to live year-round on the non-ferry islands — and that’s just a few on this one — are a determinedly self-reliant bunch with a fierce passion for solitude.
From the listing on Redfin:
Opportunity to own a custom home on a private island with 450′ of waterfront on 30+ acres of land. Enjoy amazing views of Mount Baker and other islands with the quietness of off grid living. This 2 bed 1 bath home features hardwood flooring, wood fireplace, covered patio, large vinyl windows and upper loft with private balcony. Take the stairs down to the water with miles of walkable beach. Property is located within 20 minutes to Anacortes on the foot ferry.
