Set within a 70-acre forested wetland, this property is truly unique! Large overhanging trees on both sides of the gravel entry road hint at the peace to be found within this sanctuary. Escaped cockatiels have found their forever home in a large aviary at the center, surrounded by a fenced production garden. A mix of veggies, flowers, and orchard trees is illustrated with collections of found items like watering cans and iron animals. For 47 years, the previous owners of the beloved Island Recycling business decorated their homestead with a whimsical collection of the island’s castoffs. Hundreds of tea kettles and other metal objects will catch your eye as you roam – such as an old school bus retrofitted as a bunk house near an orchard that is home to chickens, turkeys, and four-legged friends … watch your step! The main house is flanked by a protected rose garden and large catenary, while the guest house greets you with a covered outdoor dining room that has housed many fine meals for large gatherings of friends over the years. Walking trails looping from the central meadow through the woods might be of interest to tour goers for a true Whidbey Island homestead experience.
