Island living at it's finest

3 BD | 2 BA | 2,046 SF | 5,754 SF Lot | Large Basement

Tucked away down a private road facing the lagoon is where you’ll find 862 Walnut Street. Originally a boathouse from the late 1800’s, rumored to be where Jack London stored his boat, the vintage charm and character of this home makes it one-of-a-kind. The living room with the white rock fireplace and white planked wood walls creates the feeling of a vacation home on the water. The views from almost every window of either the lagoon or the beautiful Zen-like backyard bring a sense of calm and relaxation.

The main floor houses the Master Suite, with views of the water, the expansive living room with French doors leading out to a deck over the lagoon, as well as the kitchen, dining room and family room. The custom French doors in the family room open out to the private backyard which is perfectly set up for outdoor eating and enjoyment. This home is made for entertaining and relaxing with beautiful spaces, views and cozy nooks at every turn.
