Malo, Washington home and acreage for sale – $239,000

June 4, 2010

Buy my sister’s house please. So she can move to Florida, and I can go visit her there and get some sunshine for pete’s sake. (Rain in Seattle ALL June, is that what’s in store?)

Hand-crafted home on 4.29 wooded acres near Malo in Ferry County, Washington. A wrap-around veranda for watching the sun set and the Milky Way rise. Wild deer, turkeys, Goldfinch, red-winged blackbirds, eagles, and a well-established perennial garden. Property includes a healthy stand of pine, fir, and tamarack.

For no extra charge, you’ll get the scoop on the best local fishing holes and morel mushroom hunting spots. (If you play your cards right, they’ll disclose the secret huckleberry picking places.)

Interesting details throughout the home. And I’m not just speaking in real estate buzz here. Peeled logs, and pine and cedar plank construction. An enormous kitchen with carrera marble counter tops and custom-built cabinets. Custom frosted glass door on bath, which holds a walk-in double shower and heavy slate wainscoting and floors. Master bath has a two-person jetted tub and opens to the outdoors. Ornamental iron porch railing.

Windows throughout are low E and only six months old.

My sister and her husband are TALL. Their children are seven foot tall. The ceilings throughout their home are taller than tall.

Four bedrooms. Two baths. Dining room. Laundry room. Carport AND garage/workshop. (The real estate listing says three bedrooms. I don’t know why. Probably something to do with no closet in one room or some stupid thing like that.)

School district is Curlew. Local airstrip is fewer than ten miles away. And yes, there is high-speed Internet service available.

Fifteen miles from the Canadian border. Which I mention not for the proximity to a foreign country and the smuggling ideas that flit through your head. I mention it because you can buy the best damn tomatoes and berries there. Or maybe you work for Homeland Security and you’ve been posted at the Danville crossing in which case this Malo home would be a sweet addition to your life.

Retired? Retiring? Also a good spot. See fishing hole promise above-mentioned. Earn blue ribbons at the Ferry county fair−quilting, jam making, bread baking. Sound romantic? It’s an actual way of life.

I hope Pam’s house sells soon, Leila. Have they had it on the market long? It sounds like a wonderful life.
How are you? I miss seeing you on Facebook. :-)
