Memory Hill House on Orcas Island is an exquisite reflection of the heart and creative passion of its owners. Their love of detail and the authenticity of construction will impress you from the moment you step onto the front porch.
The home snuggles into a hillside overlooking Judd Cove and East Sound, surrounded by six wooded acres dotted with sculptural Madrona trees and tall firs. It's filled with custom, locally-milled woodwork, gleaming wide plank wood floors and rubbed plaster walls.
A remembrance of simpler times is triggered by an artful selection of English antiques, comfortable furnishings, and perfectly placed accesories. But there are contemporary features to appreciate as well, especially the beautiful gourmet kitchen with concrete counters and stainless steel appliances.
The elegance of crystal chandeliers, woven eastern rugs, and a gorgeous stone fireplace set the stage for wonderful dining, conversation, and reflection. (Note - Memory Hill House is also beautifully decorated for the holidays. The atmosphere of warmth and seasonal delight offers you a perfect setting in which to make your own keepsake memories!)
Upstairs, the bedrooms feature beautiful silk linens, perfect period pieces, and romantic whimsy. You can snuggle into a Cal king bed enclosed by walls and a drape and drift away feeling like you are spending the night on the Orient Express.
If you prefer a more conventional slumber, let the kids enclose themselves in this private cocoon to watch DVD's on the wall mounted screen. (Meanwhile, you get to enjoy the gorgeous full size king bed in the master bedroom and the jaccuzi tub.)
A covered deck wraps around the home so that you can enjoy a sheltered version of outdoors on a drizzly day. But in the warmth of summer, you're more likely to explore the property, find a strategically placed picnic table in a beautful clearing, and dine outdoors in the glow of a long summer evening. This beautiful custom home is a delightful destination at any time of year.
Memory Hill House is conveniently located near the Village of Eastsound where you'll enjoy the proximity of shopping and dining amenities, as well as a waterfront park.
