Seabrook, WA – Buy or Not To Buy?

(Marian is a friend of mine who has been following the Seabrook development on the coast of Washington. Based on many interesting conversations that we’ve had about this development, I thought it would be fun let him write updates about the process of buying into this development. -Dustin)

Buy or Not To Buy?

That’s a question to all of you Seattle beachcombers who like ocean sunsets, salty air, sand dollars and beach fires. If you’ve been taking your family down to Newport, Cannon Beach or Seaside in Oregon, now you have a comparably beautiful alternative on Central Washington coast. We are not talking Long Beach or Ocean Shores. We are talking about Seabrook.

I fell in love with this part of the Washington coast several years ago, before anyone announced plans to develop properties in this area, when our family visited the Griffiths-Priday state park. It reminded us of Oregon Coast with its sand cliffs, dunes and beaches. Seabrook is being built just north of the park, on adjacent 88 acres of land on a bluff overlooking the beach and the ocean.

Seabrook is a runaway hit! Just 15 months ago, new 3 bedroom/2 bath “cottages
