Read more below on the “Home of the Week” winner, listed by Brian Hopper and Candace Taylor.
Island waterfront estate perfectly positioned on 3.18 acres and 235 feet of Puget Sound waterfront. The home, just 5 minutes from the ferry, has a commanding view of Mount Rainier and the city lights of Seattle. Grandeur at its finest, the open floorplan is spacious with ample natural light through the home’s many walls of windows. A chef’s kitchen features a brand-new Sub-Zero refrigerator and luxury appointments throughout. Summertime outdoor living is a breeze on the expansive view decks on all 3 levels of the home. The main floor is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace and is the ideal gathering spot for hosting while taking in the 180-degree water views.
The owner’s suite alike is positioned to take in the water views from every part of the suite, including the oversized private deck. Expert craftsmanship is evident throughout the home, but the suite’s Cedar ceiling is a work of art. Each angle carefully cut and positioned. Step into the spa-like bath at the end of a day of play and retreat in the soaking tub taking in the view of the water. The lower level of the home serves as the media room/game room with an expansive outdoor living space as well. Host the next football game or lower the lights for movie night, this is the space.
The home is equipped with many systems and features and backed up by a 15KW generator. In-floor heating heats the home efficiently and effectively. The grounds encompass the home and truly are like a park featuring many outdoor living spaces and places to play. Water features, a pond, a beachfront stone BBQ, a private sauna room, and 235 feet of beachfront to top it off, including the bulkhead. Come crabbing or shrimping season, launch your boat at high tide easily from the small vessel crane, backing your trailer right up to it. The property has a detached 2-car garage with a workspace area and a generator room. The garage has an additional finished room, currently being used as a meatpacking room. Off the garage is a carport as well. The motor court is durable stamped concrete. The property also contains another (two-bedroom) home that needs repairs but could make a fantastic caretaker’s home or second dwelling unit. Hard to believe all this privacy and serenity is just a 5-minute ferry ride to Seattle. Time to reimagine what home looks like and live the island life at the water’s edge on Vashon Island.
