The Castle in Skagit County

Welcome to The Castle in Skagit County!

28523 Bacus Road in Sedro-Woolley

This stunning modern day castle is nestled within 20± tranquil acres of beautiful treed property and is surrounded by lush forest, abundant wildlife, and a year round creek leading to a spectacular waterfall that swirls into a natural swimming pool (if you don’t mind sharing with salmon) for your own private get away!  This inviting and authentic 2,972±sf castle boasts beautiful stone work, lots of windows, & stunning architecture. Wonderful great room for entertaining, decks, and a wood heated outdoor hot tub/sauna.

A second gate leads to a bridge which crosses a “moat” created by Wiseman Creek which lies 150-190’ below your private bridge. The creek runs through the property and cascades down a waterfall to a natural rock swimming hole. The environment is so pristine that native salmon still spawn in the creek!

After enjoying the magnificent views of the creek and waterfalls, you will enter your authentic castle equipped with today’s technology and amenities.  The stone structure took 5 years for the former owner to construct. The current owner expanded and finished  the interior using Monahan Bros. and carbon construction.  The property currently has a rare permit  from the State of Washington to build its’ own hydro-electric system.  Also, it has been recently updated with modern electric heating and air conditioning which could run “off the grid” once the system is completed. (Also has propane system).

Enjoy a hike, take your ATVs through the trails of the 20± acres or just sit and relax by the outdoor fire pit and take in the stunning natural surroundings and plentiful wildlife! Welcome to your private piece of paradise in Skagit County!
