Welcome to the new Nelson Basecamp... "Coming Soon" in March, 2018. Custom Home on 20 Acres near Bellingham, WA.
The home was built in 2007 and features 2256 square feet, radiant floor heat, views that go forever... and a style we LOVE!
These cedar logs were harvested from the lot, hand-peeled, dried, and placed artistically in the living room area. The ladder on the right of the photo is made from maple, also taken from the land.
The ground-floor bedroom will be Hayden and Jazzy's room.
The half-bath on the upper level... another example of the artistic craftsmanship throughout the home.
A Tub with a View! The master bath has a view facing northwest. In the distance are Birch Bay, Boundary Bay, and downtown Vancouver, BC.
The upper level, known affectionately as "The Cupola", has 360-degree views. Our plan is to make this into the library.
A panoramic view of the main level.
The north deck.
The wood-fired pizza oven has as commanding of views as the house itself.
This view looking east is currently grown over. Our dream is open it back up.
Below... the treehouse! Wired, heated, and with stunning views! The ultimate guest quarters! The chairlift swing is from Chair 1 at Mt. Baker Ski Area.
Inside the treehouse.
Below, the shop and the RV Storage Barn.
Below, the "play room" which is upstairs in the shop. Downstairs is the work area, storage room, plus a full kitchen and dining area and 3/4 bath.
The RV Storage Barn will have a kayak rack, bike rack, and most likely some climbing walls and challenge courses!
The Garden, just below the house.
The yard, directly below the house. We dream of an infinity pool here someday.
The lot is 1 of 4 lots totaling 80 acres, collectively known as "The Reserve at Squalicum Mountain." Throughout the 80 acres are over 2 miles of professionally built hiking/mountain biking trails. Here, "Ironman" guards the upper trail.
A bridge near Ghost Ridge, over a seasonal creek.
