This unique Cordova Bay landmark home holds a special place in the history of the area and follows the design of the builder's ancestral home in Provence. The home was built by the De Blois family in 1947 with self-insulating pumice blocks and recently rebuilt brick chimneys with a low-pitched roof for easy maintenance. Windows are in the French style, including a large cathedral window in the 14 foot ceilinged great room and French doors opening onto an upper balcony. The five level split design allows plenty of room for family to spread out and have their own space or accommodate a home office. The present owners have tastefully renovated and upgraded the interior using custom woodwork, echoing the design of luxury updated country homes in France. The farmhouse kitchen has an Aga stove and opens onto a large deck taking advantage of the expansive views of the ocean, San Juan Islands and Mt. Baker. The beautifully designed mature gardens create a peaceful private retreat including a Mediterranean patio. The garden also has a unique "Pottery Studio" with its own hydro meter and running water providing potential for an office or additional accommodation with off-street parking facing Agate Lane. Beautiful Agate Beach is just steps away from the back gate down a pretty lane. A South of France retreat in the heart of Cordova Bay. MLS 378950
