The couple that owns this spectacular Anacortes home built it with the intention of filling it with people—namely their large, extended family. Vertical, raised skylights give the home dimension and light, as does the whimsical door glass that welcomes visitors with cheery color. The low-maintenance, standing seam metal roof and one-story design means easier living as the owners, who are retired, enter their golden years in the company of close relatives and stunning sunsets.

A spacious and open floor plan, from entry to dining room to kitchen, gives the home an airy feel. A large piece of stone on the kitchen island is backlit, providing a striking centerpiece to the room.

Tall windows accentuate the sprawling home’s panoramic water view, encompassing Cypress Island and the Anacortes ferry landing. The windows bring the outside in and help the grand room live up to its name.

The master bath has all the amenities of a luxury spa: open shower, whirlpool bath, and a sauna, along with a killer view while you soak.
