Lake and bay views. Bright, open space. Tranquil garden oasis with ‘beach’, chicken coop, sun loungers, tree swing, homegrown fruit and vegetables. 45 mins from Mount Baker, 20 mins to Canadian border, 1 hr to Vancouver, 1.5 hrs to Seattle.

The space

Our 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1828 sq ft home is bright, airy, minimalist and cozy. We are designers and landscapers and our home is our labor of love! Floor to ceiling windows showcase Lake Whatcom from the front and Bellingham bay from the back! Our backyard is a relaxing oasis with sun loungers, a large dining table, tree swing and mini beach/ sandbox area that keeps our kids entertained for hours. In the summer we grow all sorts of fruits and veggies. (This year we have a 6 types of berry’s, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, eggplant, salad greens, carrots, watermelon, cantaloupe, onions, garlic, asparagus and also several fruit trees still in their early stages). Our intention was to create a tranquil, outdoor space that both kids and grown ups love to hang out. Our neighborhood is quiet so you can hear the birds sing or meditate. We have a two decks and a bar area just outside the kitchen. Plenty of chill out spots ensure that everyone can have their own space! We have a chicken coop with 11 chickens that lay fresh eggs daily. The chickens are enclosed in a spacious chicken run.

Neighbourhood

Bellingham is 'the city of subdued excitement'! Our neighborhood, (Silver Beach) is tranquil and peaceful. We see deer all the time! Lake Whatcom (which has a sandy beach and kids playground) is a 5 minute walk. Bellingham is full of wonderful trails and we are a 5 minute walk from Whatcom falls park trail which has an amazing waterfall and a lovely lake that kids can fish in without a fishing liscence. The North shore trails of Lake Whatcom are a 10 minute drive and are seriously beautiful! Downtown Bellingham is a 5 minute drive and has many coffee shops, brew pubs and a bustling farmers market. Bellingham is situated in between Seattle (1.5 hour drive) and Vancouver, Canada (1 hour drive) so it is a great place to visit if you'd like to visit Canada also. (We are only 20 minutes from the border.) If you like to ski or snowboard, Mount Baker is amazing and only 45 minutes drive. We love to go sledding at Mount Baker in the summer. Bellingham is a good fit for you if you love the outdoors, beautiful scenery, lakes and mountains, water and winter sports, friendly people and a laid back vibe! We have found it to be a great place to raise kids.

Getting around

Our neighborhood is easy to walk around. Downtown Bellingham is a 5 minute drive and has plenty of cafes, brew pubs and a wonderful farmers market. 5 minutes drive to Whatcom falls park (#1 park in Bellingham) and 10 minutes from the beautiful North shore trails. Mount Baker is 45 minutes away and is incredible. Even if you are not a skier/snowboarder, you will love it! Lots of whale watching tours! Canadian border is just 20 minutes away. Seattle is 1.5 hours south and Vancouver, Canada is 1 hour north. Bellingham is a college town and is full of cool breweries, parks and trails. If you love the outdoors and beautiful scenery then this is the place for you!
