Blaine Real Estate
Located just south of the Canadian border, and home to the Peace Arch international monument, sits a quiet northwest Washington town with a loud and illustrious past. The town of Blaine was settled in the mid 1800s and used as a port for the logging and fishing industries in the area. Blaine also served as a gateway for prospectors looking to make their fortune in the goldfields of British Columbia. The town's proximity to the border also meant a booming trade for rum-runners and bootleggers during the years of Prohibition.
Although the urban amenities of Bellingham are a mere twenty miles away, nowadays, Blaine is known as a peaceful town with nature at its doorstep. With easy access to the Cascade Mountains, the San Juan Islands, and the spectacular Puget Sound/Georgia Straight coastline, Blaine is a haven for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Birdwatchers, too, have flocked to Blaine in recent years to admire the many species of migratory birds that traverse the area. Homes and properties in Blaine take full advantage of the spectacular Pacific Northwest scenery, with ocean views, mountain vistas, and beautifully wooded lots.
The variety of properties in Blaine includes many architectural styles, from charming European-style stone cottages to classic west-coast A-frames, and from gorgeous custom-designed log homes to spectacular waterfront properties. Against the backdrop of snow-capped mountains and evergreen forests, these beautiful homes almost defy description.
