Property Description

This is a very unique opportunity to live on Lake Whatcom and park your boat inside a boathouse that has 8-12 feet of water below with no bank at the 50' (+) shoreline. The home is a fixer but the "bones" seem to be in good condition and it is a 2-story home with a concrete walk-out basement. Each floor has a bathroom, so it would be easy to remodel, or leave the basement and raise the home and build a new one like they have done next door. There is an existing 2 car garage at the street, as well. The floors are all oak with fir on the stairs. The doors and hardware are mostly all original. The views of the lake are outstanding, and the boathouse is in very good condition...other than the roof. There is a winch in the boathouse and a sling.
