What you will love about this home
Our home is located in a beautiful, rustic and unique, 5 square mile peninsula of land that is part of Washington State, USA but not attached to the US mainland. Rather, it is located right on the Canada/USA border immediately south of Vancouver, BC, Canada and is only 20 minutes away from Vancouver International Airport and about 35 minutes from downtown Vancouver. It is surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean and its only land access is via Canada. It is said to be "the safest gated community in the US" as the only way in is through a US Border Patrol station!
Our home sits high on a bluff and has magnificent views of Boundary Bay and the Canadian and US Coastal Mountain Range, including Mount Baker.
What you will love about this neighborhood
Our street is a quiet cul-de-sac of lovely homes and great neighbors. Point Roberts is quaint and quiet with several distinct beaches, each with their own character. We have a market and several eating establishments, along with a local library, shops, 18 hole golf course and marina. There is also a landing strip with small commercial aircraft availability. Everyone who comes to Point Roberts feels like they are living on an island.
Immediately across the border is the magnificent city of Vancouver and the best of the West Coast lifestyle. One can be in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world with a 30 to 45 minute drive. Whistler is 2 to 2.5 hours away. And the Tsawwassen ferry terminal, opening up access to Victoria and many of the Gulf Islands, is a 10 minute drive from the Point Roberts border crossing.
