Modern Backyard Boasts Private Swimming Pool, Pergola
Tall palm trees and stone walls make this backyard feel even more private, like it's the owners hidden oasis. A modern pergola offers some shade from the hot afternoon sun, while two bright yellow lounge chairs allow for reading and sipping drinks right by the water.
This private, waterfront retreat is just 90 minutes from Seattle on picturesque Camano Island, Washington. The property rests on nearly eight acres, with a main house, guest house, post-and-beam barn, chicken coop, apartment and original owner's house. It features views of Mt. Baker, the Cascades and, occasionally, gray whales leaping in the water that borders the property.
Just off the pool area, a set of stairs leads up to the pool house. Underneath the pool house is a sitting area with modern furniture that gives the homeowners a great space to entertain with the perfect view of the pool.
Windows Allow Natural Light In and Give Home a Pool View
The windows scattered across the home's rear elevation allow plenty of natural light to come into the home's interior spaces, while allowing the view of the home's backyard to take center stage-even from the inside of the house.
