Why we have a crush on this property

This one-of-a-kind home for sale on Washington’s Whidbey Island has it all: beach frontage, sweeping views, mid-century modern flair, and an easy, breezy, atmosphere.

The two-bedroom home was built in 1961, and its flat, sloping roof practically shouts it. The place is perched right on the edge of the world, with the Salish Sea separating the town of Oak Harbor from Victoria, Canada.

Inside, the home maximizes its open-concept floor plan. A living area is warmed by a wood stove, while the airy kitchen offers bright-white cabinets, plus a skylight window and track lighting above. Wood floors underfoot and wooden beams overhead make it all feel extra cozy. Beyond the main living space, the bedrooms boast generously sized closets, and there’s a designated laundry area, to boot.

The focal point of the home, though, is the row of huge windows facing the sea, offering views of the water and out to the hills of Victoria. Those views are topped only by the fresh-aired panorama you see when you step onto the porch. “Imagine enjoying your morning coffee on the back patio as the waves gently break on the beach or watching the sunset with a loved one,” coos the listing

To top it off, the property comes with a two-car garage, ample space for parking, as well as a small front courtyard. This retro coastal dream is listed by Kelli Lang with RE/MAX Gateway for $799,000.
