Commanding a sweeping panorama across the Strait of Georgia and an array of tree-clad islands, this remarkable Birch Point estate is the very essence of private luxury. Created for a lifestyle of comfort and impressive entertaining, the residence is magnificently designed and exquisitely detailed with Old World elegance and the very finest of contemporary amenities.
Sited on a rare coastal landscape of over 15 park-like acres with more than 400 feet of beach frontage, the gated property is exceedingly private and yet easily accessible to the Canadian border, Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club and Marina, the village of Birch Bay and the Bellingham International Airport. Listing agent Bethnie Morrison describes it as “a picturesque sanctuary on uncommon acreage.”
With nearly 12,000 square feet of space, the interior offers picture-perfect sightlines to the manicured grounds and sparkling bay. Flawless details include soaring ceilings, carved moldings, gorgeous chandeliers, large windows with leaded glass, lustrous floors and all custom cabinetry. The main level invites gatherings both intimate and grand, with gracious flow among living and dining rooms, French doors to the stunning terrace, and a kitchen worthy of the most demanding professional chef. Just outside is a full outdoor kitchen plus a charming gazebo and additional space for memorable al fresco dining.
Added features include a private executive office complete with boardroom, a flex room, and a main-floor bedroom. With all three levels served by an elevator, the upper floor is home to luxurious en-suite bedrooms with private balconies and walk-in closets. The primary suite is a romantic sanctuary complete with fireplace, sensational spa-style bath and a spacious walk-in closet with a washer and dryer. The lower level features a plush theater, expansive wine cellar, pub and game room, fully appointed gym, wellness area, cedar-lined dry sauna and a three-quarter bath.
In addition to a one-bedroom caretaker suite, the grounds feature a 60-zone irrigation system, spectacular expanses of lawn for recreation and entertaining and a lighted staircase to the beach. A legacy estate of legendary grandeur.
