The Cottages at Seabright Farm

An oceanfront vacation community on the coast of Point Roberts, Seabright Farm Cottages offer a memorable indoor and outdoor living experience

Anders Kruus and Wayne Knowles agree – “This is Gulf Island living, without the ferry!” Kruus and Knowles are active partners in The Cottages at Seabright Farm—a 62-cottage oceanfront development on the south-eastern shore of Point Roberts, U.S.A.

With a well-serviced marina and various beaches, every type of oceanfront activity is available in Point Roberts: gather oysters or crabs, watch orcas and eagles, take out the boat, or go kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding. There is also salmon fishing, beach combing, a renowned golf course, bicycling and even local horseback riding.

The Cottages at Seabright Farm reflects this lifestyle. Unlike typical subdivisions that are built en-masse and to a rigid “master plan”, Seabright Farm is designed to develop organically and in harmony with its environment and the peaceful seaside village of Point Roberts. As the lots are sold and each family’s unique cottage is built, the neighbourhood and community will grow. Services and amenities include a regenerated farm where residents can get fresh produce, flowers and fruits; copious green spaces and a large wetland complex; a barn-themed community hall for potlucks and barn dances; a heated pool and hot tubs; stairs for easy access to the beach; a lookout, and a heritage cottage for small gatherings to indulge in yoga, wine tastings or just catching up.

Buyers have a choice of six charming custom cottage plans that originate from the farm, beach and waterfront themes of the location. The plans promote a casual flow between indoor and outdoor living spaces, pulling in the amazing Gulf of Georgia ocean light and sea breezes, while emphasizing family gathering areas like great rooms, decks and fireplaces. A multitude of add-on buildings and features allow each family to further customize their cottage to their specific needs and dreams. Lot and cottage combinations range from US$400,000 to US$800,000+.

Although it is only an hour’s drive from Vancouver, Point Roberts benefits from a unique microclimate that has less rainfall and more sunlight than Vancouver. More importantly, the international border and isolation from the U.S. mainland has sheltered this quiet little American village from urban development, preserving its’ laid-back, peaceful island air.

With a fast and easy ferry-less commute to this rural retreat, The Cottages at Seabright Farm will become your quick cure for urban stress.
