Luxury in the Islands of Washington State?


Reef in Washington waters

Ever visited the San Juan Islands? They are a little archipelago off of Washington State where orcas play and kayaking is unbeaten. Who would have thought this humble place to be considered "the hottest luxury-home market in the country", as mentioned today in the Wall Street Journal?

Waterfront homes are everywhere. Trees abound, creating oxygen that flows freely through the numerous waterways pristine with bald eagles flying overhead. Artists flock to the islands to use their sanctuary as inspiration.

With 15.9% of the San Juans' employment in the construction industry, we are bound to see further development and growth. Arts and entertainment, recreation, accommodation and food services rank second, employing 14.7% of the population. Educational, health and social services rank third (12.7%).*

Celebrities who choose the San Juans for their getaway include Steve Miller, of the Steve Miller Band, who owns on San Juan Island. Bill Gates owns on Shaw Island. Actor Chris Pratt, from the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation owns on one of the islands and names his beach "Jacks Beach" for his son. Record producer David Tickle, known for producing Rod Stewart, the Police, U2, Genesis, Jackson Browne and the Clash, has been living in Friday Harbor since 1994.
