This Craftsman is an upgrade from the old cabin that stood on this property for years, when the owners would spend summers playing here in Skagit County’s Gibraltar community near Anacortes. Now their kids are grown, and the new house is a year-round home. Sitting pretty on the shores of Similk Bay on Fidalgo Island, the place has a view of Deception Pass State Park just across the water. With more family, the summers are even sweeter now.
Vaulted ceilings, numerous windows, and light-colored trim draw lots of light. The balcony above the living room houses a kid-friendly loft, accessible by ladder.
Nearly every room in this three-bedroom, four-bath house has a view of Similk Bay, where crabbing right out front is popular (and productive) in summer.
The eat-in kitchen is great for casual dining or for keeping the cook company during meal prep.
Windows in the master bed and bathroom give a spectacular view. The deck outside provides a quiet, private vantage point for the beach below. A larger deck has plenty of space for a sunsplashed lunch or evening grill.
