773 Fort Ebey Road, Coupeville
From the spacious, light-filled entrance to the expansive sunset views over the Salish Sea, this solid construction and timeless design custom high-bluff waterfront home invites you to slow down and breathe!
Lovingly designed and built by the owner’s late husband, architect Dennis DePape, 773 Fort Ebey Rd creates a lasting impression on all who view it, but especially those who reside within it’s walls. Planned and built in two phases, the western half of the home was completed in 2013 using strawbale infill and sturdy epoxy-filled stucco construction over a high-quality concrete floor. Phase 2, the eastern half of the home, was completed in 2015 with traditional wood and insulation materials wrapped with the same high-quality stucco. The roof is commercial grade TPO, smartly designed to drain from one downspout on the north side which carries water to the gulley at the street. Since its construction, neighbors have dubbed this “the eagle house” for its likeness to an eagle with two soaring wings and eagle eye tower as viewed from the south on Fort Ebey Rd.
Timeless Design Inside
Inside, you’ll be wowed by the tower entry and foyer, with beautiful lighting and display shelves. The open floor plan of the main living room, dining room, and kitchen keep the view central to whatever you are doing. If accessibility is a concern, buyers will appreciate the zero-step access points from the front and the side patio, completely level floorplan, and a no step bathtub/shower in the primary bathroom. The carpet in the home was installed over a finish-quality concrete floor with stryofoam insulation underneath for warm feet! High quality Canyon Creek Cabinets, granite countertops and stainless appliances will delight the chef, as will the propane range.
Solid Construction Designed for Awestruck View
The upward slope of the ceiling toward the west invites attention to the immense views. Large concrete patio on south side provides view not only of the Salish Sea and sunsets, but also the waves crashing on the shore 140 feet below to the south. Speaking of the bluff, one can view rebar stakes that were placed near the edge of the bluff when the home began construction in 2012 and they are still standing. A bluff study was done at the time of construction and is available to give buyers confidence.
