This week’s featured property is a custom-built two-story log home with the rustic atmosphere of a mountain lodge throughout its 2,658 square-feet of living space. It is sited on 4.81 acres of solitude and privacy that includes panoramic views of Port Susan Bay, the Cascade Mountains and sunrises on Camano Island.
Built by Kevin Lundrigan, the three-bedroom, three-bath home is accompanied by a 30- by 24-feet detached two-car garage enclosed by Carriage House style doors.
It includes a knotty alder solid wood vanity and sink, granite slab countertop, forced air heat and a mechanical room.
A second outbuilding provides two covered carports, an RV septic dump and double utility sink. Also, a versatile shop space with an unfinished upstairs that could be utilized as a studio, workshop or possible mother-in-law apartment.
The floor plan is designed to make the home functional as a rambler, with a kitchen, formal living and dining rooms, bedroom suite, additional bedroom, bathroom and mud room on the first floor. Only a study/library and second bedroom suite are located upstairs.
Main floor highlights include log interior walls, radiant heat marble floors, knotty alder doors and trim, leaded glass double pane entry doors, and tongue-and-groove knotty pine vaulted ceilings.
Technology upgrades include security cameras, wiring for high-definition plasma television hookups, heated and programmable towel bars in all bathrooms, and boxed night lighting on the stairway.
Kitchen appointments include granite slab countertops and backsplash, commercial-grade stainless steel appliances, knotty alder paneled cabinets with crown molding, a two-tiered center island with extended breakfast bar on one side and gas cooktop on the other, and a vented hood.
Other details worthy of note include cedar-lined walk-in closets in all bedrooms, multiple stone countertops and surrounds in the bathrooms, black opal stair landing, wood stair treads with iron wood plugs, multi-stone floor-to-ceiling woodburning insert fireplace with rough-hewn wood mantel, glass block shower wall, rain showerhead, above-counter glass vessel basins, and polished slate floors.
Even the mud room is extravagant: travertine marble floor, granite slab countertops, knotty alder cabinets, a beverage/wine center, built-in corner Lazy Susan, front-load washer and dryer with storage pedestals.
