BLAINE -- Marin's first phase of condominiums on Semiahmoo Bay is nearly sold out, and the sales staff is gearing up to sell the next selection of units.
Although each residence at Marin includes more than $1 million in builder costs, the homes are being sold at prices starting at $499,900. Buyers who purchase a home during Marin's sales event on Feb. 16 will also receive a free boat slip at Semiahmoo Marina.
The two-bedroom, 2.5-bath homes range in size from 1,200 to 2,200 square feet. Interiors include hot-water radiant-heated floors, custom-milled wood trim, oversize EuroLine windows that offer unobstructed beachfront views, and gas fireplaces with concrete surrounds.
The kitchens at Marin feature custom-crafted cabinets with glass inserts; slab granite countertops; Kohler sink fixtures in a polished-chrome finish; Wolf ovens, gas ranges, ventilation hoods and microwaves; and Sub-Zero stainless steel refrigerators and freezers.
The concrete-and-steel building's exterior features cedar and natural stone. Also included are patios, walkways and decks, as well as 500 feet of private beach frontage.
Marin is located on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. It is less than an hour from Vancouver, B.C., and about 90 minutes from Seattle. The peninsula offers residents 8.7 miles of coastline to explore, as well as miles of nature, hiking and cycling trails.
Next to Marin is the Semiahmoo Marina, which includes nearly 300 boat slips. The marina provides members with easy access to Drayton Harbor, which is considered the gateway to the San Juan and Gulf islands. Marina amenities include a fuel dock, an electric supply, guest slips, a bathroom with free showers, and a gift shop.
Semiahmoo Golf & Country Club and Loomis Trail Golf Club, two of the state's top courses, are minutes from Marin.
For local shopping options, Blaine includes several unique stores and boutiques. Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham is 20 minutes from Marin and features a range of shopping, dining and entertainment options. Seattle Premium Outlets in Tulalip is a one-hour drive away.
For live entertainment, the Mount Baker Theatre in downtown Bellingham's arts district is the largest performing-arts facility of its kind north of Seattle. The restored 1927 building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is dedicated to presenting performing artists on both the professional and community levels.
