THE H-HOUSE WATERFRONT

This beautiful waterfront home has a unique “H-shaped” plan! Hence the name “H-House.” This was a custom designed and built house by its original owners in 1959, making it a true Mid-Century custom home. You will find charming and artful details, such as classic wood paneled walls in the kitchen and sitting porch (which acts as a dining area).

The first thing you will notice when you walk in are the impossibly large windows in both the Primary Bedroom and the Living Room, embracing the view from floor to ceiling!

The two private bedrooms are generously large and isolated to their own ‘wing’ of the house. The owners built in beautiful flagstone floors in the entry hall and sitting porch, and the present owners installed cork flooring in the main living room area!

Other features include:

1). Some of the original appliances remain in the kitchen, including a counter-mounted stovetop (notice the
copper-colored backsplash tiles) & two charming wall-mounted ovens.
2). The kitchen is punctuated by a luxury modern refrigerator that every homeowner would love!
3). You’ll enjoy having the original “Dutch Door” which leads from the sitting room to the side-yard of the house.
4). A modern washer/dryer setup is in the utility room, and there is a relatively new water heater as well.

The overall size is 55-feet across and 40-feet from water side to entry side, so please plan on this house being moved to a waterfront lot or very close to a barge site.

The garage does not come along with the house due to width issues.

Call the office today for more information or to arrange a viewing! This is a “must-see” house!!

YARROW BAY MID-CENTURY

This classic mid-century home has been well cared for and appropriately updated since it was first built in 1953. There is one bedroom on the main floor along with a living room, formal dining room, kitchen, and sitting room (plus one main floor bathroom). Upstairs you will find an office space at the top of the stairs, along with a primary bedroom ensuite with an attached bathroom and walk-in closet. There is also a top floor deck attached to the primary bedroom. There is one additional bedroom on the second floor.

You will be getting the main floor (1,230 sq/ft) and upstairs floor (780 sq/ft) with this house move for a total of 2,010 sq/ft of living space. If you were to add a daylight basement under the house at your new property your total square footage would be approximately 3,200 sq/ft.

Due to the height of this home, it is best suited for waterfront or very near to barge access. Thankfully there are very few wires and obstructions to get it to water on the origin side, so it can be barged to most places around the Puget Sound within the US and beyond. And yes, this house can also be delivered by barge to Canada!

HISTORIC BUCK HOUSES

These two post-Victorian historic homes are being offered for a local house move (within the immediate Monroe, WA area) as a matched pair. Truly original and chocked full of beautiful architectural details, these houses would make for amazing historical rentals or vacation homes, or as urban architectural gems within the City of Monroe itself. We have priced the homes at $150,000 if moved at the same time ($75,000 each). As they are significant as a pair, we hope they can be kept together. Please inquire for price if only moving one.

The Buck Family in 1900 included Siralpha A. Buck and his wife Adeline. Beginning in 1894, he employed many men at Buck’s Shingle Mill on Woods Creek and provided utilities for the city through his Monroe Water and Light Company. Buck Island, in Al Borlin Park, is named after him.

The two Buck homes where the family lived are still standing at 143 and 135 Ann Street. They are exact twins of each other and were crafted in a simple farmhouse style. They have wrap-around porches supported by columns, bay windows downstairs and narrow windows upstairs. The historical society is launching an effort to move the homes before they are torn down for multi-family housing.

Please call your local office today for more information and to arrange to view these historical beauties!

NOTE: If width is a factor along your destination route it is possible to cut off the side porch (saving columns and architectural details and reinstalling them later). This would reduce the width to approximately 28 feet wide (from 34 feet).
