When I checked out Pickett Street’s latest listing–a custom-built home located in Arlington–I actually gasped out loud. I beckoned my partner over to take a look. This is it, I thought. This is the country dream home.
The property sits on a lush, canopied ten acres. I love the home’s rustic beauty, with those wooden beams and the enormous stone fireplace that speak of cozy mountain lodges and quiet country homes. I also love that the architecture pairs this rustic beauty with modern sleekness–luxurious bathrooms, immaculate appliances, and other shiny details.
Below is more information about this listing, as well as the surrounding area. To take a look at the property, or for other real estate information, get in touch with Pickett Street at firstname.lastname@example.org or (425) 502-5397.
1. The listing:
This home has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms–each bedroom has an en-suite bath. The master bathroom has two sinks and a gorgeous jetted tub.
The first floor has hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows. My favorite detail is the large gas fireplace framed by windows looking out onto the lawn. I’m imagining a snowy winter evening spent cooking and reading curled up around this fireplace. With two ovens, a cooktop island, clean wooden cabinetry, and a breakfast bar, the kitchen is also dream.
However, the property’s most special quality is its exterior. The house is surrounded by five hog and hot-wired pastures perfect for horses and other farm animals. There are also two sheds, multiple ponds, an organic garden, and a hanging porch swing.
2. Neighborhood vibe:
This property is located in the country, on the Stillaguamish River and nestled in the foothills of the gorgeous Cascade Range and Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. It’s about 20 minutes from the Arlington Municipal Airport. It’s also close to Arlington’s Country Charm Park, a major recreation area with trails, beach access and swimming, off-leash dog parks, sports fields, and campgrounds.
Around 19,000 people live in Arlington. Some residents work in the area, while many others commute to Seattle, which is only an hour to an hour and a half drive, or Everett, which is about a 25 to 30 minute drive.
3. What to eat in the area:
With ten acres of pastures and ponds and other comforts, would you actually ever need to leave this property?
I’m kidding. There is plenty to do if you need a break from country life from time to time. There are several gems of restaurants and bars in the Arlington’s quaint downtown, which is about a 10 to fifteen minute drive from this property. The highly rated Bistro San Martin serves world-inspired regional cuisine that features fresh, local Northwest ingredients. Suda Thai serves well-rated Thai food, and the homey and warm Stilly Diner serves classic American dishes. Marysville’s awesome Hidden Vine Bistro and Wine Bar is also only a 20 minute drive.
4. What to do in the area:
Because Arlington is so close to national forests and the Cascades, there are plenty of outdoor activities in the area. Trails around Arlington include the 10-mile Centennial trail and the 27-mile Whitehorse trail; many of these trails offer excellent hiking, jogging, biking, and horseback riding.
This incredibly special property won’t stick around on the market for long.
