Skyline – Anacortes, WA

Skyline - Anacortes, WA

 

Skyline is a beautiful developed area of Fidalgo Island that includes homes with a wide variety of architectural styles and most of the homes have views of Skyline Marina.  Many of the homes have views of Burroughs Bay; Allen, Burroughs and Whidbey Islands; the Olympic Mountains; and of course Skyline Marina.
 
Skyline is generally considered to include the area between the southwestern tip of the Anacortes Airport, across Anaco Beach Road and over to Washington Park. Starting in the 1960’s, some of the most expensive homes of Anacortes began to be built in the Skyline area. Then in the 1970’s both single and multilevel homes with southwesterly and westerly facing views were built and the community which occupied the northwestern tip of Fidalgo Island became known as Skyline.
 
Today, Skyline homes vary in year built, style and amenities. From seventy’s ramblers to the newer Craftsman homes, Skyline boasts a variety of architectural styles, although most of the older homes have been updated over the years.  Many of the homes have incredible panoramic views so investing in home upgrades continues to pay off for Skyline homeowners.

Skyline is a walk-able community built around the Skyline Marina, Tug Boat Park, and the Skyline Beaches Skyline homeowners enjoy jogging in the neighborhood as well as walking the trails and road in nearby Washington Park.
 
The Skyline Marina facility offers both open and covered moorage with a variety of boat slip sizes. This large marina built in 1965, is able to accommodate smaller mega yachts with advance notice. The facility is a dockominium, (each slip is privately owned) so access is based on availability. The large boatyard can help you with most repairs and maintenance needs plus there is a boat lift for convenience. Skyline Marina is open year round from 8 am to 5 pm. 
 
Skyline home owners enjoy the use of a private beach, Community Center, RV parking, tennis courts, parks, beach cabana, and easy access to Washington Park  There is a quaint convenience store and fuel station called Old Salts where you will often see Skyline residents enjoying a cup of coffee and the newspaper, or sharing boating or fish stories.
