$1 Million Homes for Sale in Washington, California and Vermont

This house is in the Eagledale neighborhood, with filtered views of Eagle Harbor and its marina. The ferry terminal (along with restaurants, a winery, a museum and a waterfront park) is a 10-minute car ride around the harbor, and the ferry ride to Seattle is 35 minutes. The property has 180 feet of frontage on a tidal inlet called Whiskey Creek, so named because it was rumored to have been used for stashing and transporting liquor from Canada during Prohibition.

Size: 1,810 square feet

Price per square foot: $622

Indoors: The combined efforts of the current and previous owners have yielded a new concrete foundation and basement; a new septic system, drain field and plumbing; a refinished front door and solid white-oak floors; a redone kitchen and master bathroom; fresh paint; and new landscaping.

The front door, which has been stripped of paint and retains its original skeleton key, opens to a living and dining room with original leaded-glass windows and window seats and an updated tile fireplace with a Jotul wood-stove insert. A partial wall separates the dining area from the kitchen. There, you’ll find new cabinets with polished-concrete countertops, subway tile and bead-board wall surfaces, a farmhouse sink, a Viking stove and a Big Chill retro-style refrigerator.

The main-floor master bedroom is part of an addition built several decades ago. It has a skylight and French doors that connect it to a sitting room. Louvered doors open to two walk-in closets. The new en suite master bathroom has a walk-in subway-tiled shower and double sinks with brass hardware. There is also a separate bathtub with bead-board siding, and a heated towel rack.

Upstairs, an open family room or office is connected to a second bedroom. Both rooms have wood accents, carpeted floors and vaulted ceilings with skylights. The second-floor bathroom includes a skylight, a pedestal sink and a walk-in shower.

The house also has a renovated first-floor mudroom with built-in storage and a washer and dryer.

Outdoor space: A gate with a pergola trailing vines introduces the front yard, which is planted with rhododendrons, hydrangeas, maples and azaleas. The fenced backyard has raised garden beds, a lawn, a pergola, the statuesque remains of a brick chimney, planted borders and flowering trees. A one-car garage contains space for a workbench. Wooden steps lead downhill to a waterfront dock, where Whiskey Creek meets Eagle Harbor.

Taxes: $4,360 (2019, based on a tax assessment of $452,220)
