Among the many Sequim homes for sale, this extraordinary home just sold. When you hear about the features in this home and how much it sold for, you may find yourself a bit envious of the buyers. You should. This home was one in a thousand. Rarely will a home and a stunning property like this come up for sale in the Sequim valley, and rarely will it be available for such an unbelievable price. I know all about this home, because I represented the buyers. Let me give you a guided tour.
Such high construction quality and attention to detail are rare among Sequim homes for sale in any market, but the builder and owner of this home (an engineer with a fastidious eye to every detail) built this home to the highest standards and then some. Some homes have good floor plans, others have great floor plans, but this home was planned by a master with efficient design, a comfort that defies description throughout the home (and which cannot be explained in photos), with surprises in the functionality of every room. And yet this home is not ostentatious from the outside. But we aren’t through. As the infomercials said, “Wait, there’s more.”
This home also has solar panels (28 of them at $1,000 each) that provide this home with 70% of all its electricity needs throughout the year, and also creates a credit with the local utility company that pays the owners $2,000 a year. In other words, this home never has an electricity bill. Talk about green and cost efficient. It doesn’t get any better than this.
A vineyard is already growing in the rich Sequim soil. (Sequim has several commercial vineyards.) Special fencing is in place to prevent the wild deer from feasting on vines or organic vegetables. And speaking of organic vegetables, the kitchen is a chef’s delight since it does not have the all-too-common electric stove top, but a propane stove when you want better control or when you need an open flame. Of course, there is a deck for the barbeque in a private back yard.
Did I mention this is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in 1,900 square feet (not counting the two garages, the additional workout room or office adjacent to the shop, and not counting the guest unit)? Is this exactly what retirees are looking for with the main living all on one floor? Absolutely! I see a lot of Sequim homes for sale, but every once in a while I see one I call a “pleasant surprise.” This home is a very pleasant surprise.
One more thing. This home is within walking distance of the Dungeness Recreation Area and the beaches. As the kids would say in a text message, “OMG!” By the way, this incredible property sold for . . . $325,000. I know. Unbelievable. [This was a full price offer, and there was also a second offer that came in just behind this one.]
I feel privileged to have represented a wonderful couple from New Mexico as their buyer’s agent. When you’re looking for your retirement home among all the Sequim homes for sale, I hope you are so lucky as to find a home like this.

This home is extraordinary! Along with the 1.26 acres, you can’t go wrong.
I’ve been planning to retire in Sequim for three years now, and your Sequim real estate blog has become my most precious resource. I thought it was time I pause to thank you.
Looks like a great home. The idea of cutting costs on your electric bill by installing solar panels is a great idea.
I really enjoyed this post… This house in incredible!
