John Wachter has lived in Westsound for many years, and the property was originally purchased by John's grandfather, a Bellingham jeweler, more than 80 years ago. Over time many fruit trees and shrubs were planted on this fertile, sunny land, and today the estate has apples, plums, peaches, apricots, seabuckthorn, figs, currants, blueberries and raspberries, as well as medicinal herb garden designed exclusively by Chris S. Most recently John and his amazing friend Chris have worked hard to create two lovely guest areas and a fantastic pool deck with outdoor kitchen so guests can enjoy this gorgeous setting and feel the same magic they feel everyday living in paradise. John also enjoy antiques and collecting, and guests can see many vintage items throughout the property.
