View Homes for Sale on Water in Clark County, WA

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

We recently sold another ViewHome™ along the Washougal River, and Debb checked in to see how they spent their first Christmas.  They are so grateful to live in their version of paradise -surrounded by nature, with the sounds of the river rushing past their home. They even had a few kayakers paddle by one sunny morning - each waving and acknowledging what a gift it is to be on the water.

Water has a natural, meditative effect on us -- the sight and sound of moving water helps put us in a relaxed, reflective mode that seems to ameliorate any disruptions around us. This is one of the many reasons waterfront properties are at a premium - there is a built-in asset that many homes don't have.  Some buyers want easy access to boating and active watersports. Others want a peaceful place for quiet reflection. Either way, we are drawn to water.

We are fortunate to live in an area where there are many diverse bodies of water - lakes, streams, rivers that are still in their natural state.  But, due to regulations designed to protection our waterways, development of any designated shoreline properties comes with tight regulations, setbacks, and mitigation requirements. Even creeks are regulated in certain protected watersheds. This can cause frustration for anyone trying to build or expand a house along a natural waterway (previous structures are grandfathered in, but there are still limitations on what you can do to the property.)

These restrictions also create a specialized market, where water becomes a highly-prized feature of the home.  With these restrictions, and limited inventory, you should always work with someone who has experience with waterfront properties and knows how to find that perfect opportunity for you.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.
