The unnamed owner of this house, built by Gary Gladwish Architecture, vowed to eventually settle down on Washington’s Orcas Island. Forty years later, she purchased a bit of land by the woods – surrounding herself with the idyllic San Juan Islands views that she always dreamed about. Eventually, her freshly-designed Eagle Ridge residence was ready to welcome her home.

Obviously, a house that values its surrounding natural landscapes is going to be generous with its sliding doors. Once these are opened up completely, we become fully immersed in a stylish living area.
