New On Market: Timeless Charm Meets Modern Luxury

By RSIR Staff |

Nestled on the serene shores of Puget Sound’s Rich Passage, this exquisite property is a true gem, offering a captivating mini compound featuring three distinctive dwelling structures. The story of this unique haven unfolds as you enter the enchanting world of the “Main House,” “El Faro,” and “La Casita,” set against a backdrop of meticulously landscaped grounds, cobblestone pathways, and breathtaking 220-degree views of the Sound.

As you approach, it becomes evident that this is not just a place; it’s a masterpiece. A local landmark, the landscape is nothing short of a work of art, spanning 109 feet of pristine waterfront, meandering pathways, a waterside view deck, hot tub, and southwest exposure to maximize views.

Unparalleled privacy blankets every corner of the property, particularly on the waterfront side. Descend to your own bulkheaded beachfront via concrete stairs, where you can enjoy the tranquil sound of waves. Just a stone’s throw away, the beloved Crystal Springs Drive invites you for leisurely enjoyment, while Pleasant Beach Village and the island’s best parks and beaches are mere miles away, including the coveted Fort Ward Park.

With roots dating back to 1933, the Main House, “El Faro,” is a Scandinavian farmhouse-style structure that stands proudly on Point White Drive, marking nearly a century of welcoming seafarers to the island’s southwest shoreline. Lovingly maintained and thoughtfully remodeled, this distinguished home showcases the finest of living. Two sets of French doors beckon you outside onto an expansive deck with an outdoor fireplace—an ideal perch for a quiet morning cup of coffee or lively evening spent among good company. Inside, the kitchen and great room serve as the heart of the home, with walls of windows to bathe the space in natural light. The main-level primary suite exudes comfort and elegance, complete with a sitting area, a spa-like ensuite bath, and a walk-in closet. Upstairs, two bedrooms, a bathroom, and ample storage await.

A shy 600-square-foot detached guest studio, “La Casita,” beckons with a three-quarter bathroom, a full kitchen, and all the comforts for a short or extended stay. Remodeled in 2008 and freshly painted, this space exudes charm with its tile floors, mini-split ductless HVAC system, skylights, and views of both the marine and lush garden.

“El Faro,” features an authentic lighthouse tower and adjoining office space with built-in lateral files. Below the office, you’ll find a fully finished street entry garage, and beneath that, a temperature-controlled basement perfect for storing your cherished wine collection. The design, a blend of Norwegian lighthouse and the Norwegian Church in Ostreim, creates an ambiance that captures the heart of seafaring heritage.

A 12-foot cedar-planked sailing dinghy suspended from the ceiling, originally designed by renowned naval architect Ed Monk, Sr., is a tribute to Bainbridge Island’s maritime legacy. From this vantage point, watch the sun dip below the skyline, eagles soaring overhead, and the ever-constant ballet of maritime activities in the Sound. It’s a living experience embraced by the sea.

A true rarity on Bainbridge Island, the boat launch/marine railway is a testament to the property’s uniqueness. Flawlessly rebuilt, revel in direct access to the azure waters of Puget Sound. This exclusive privilege provides endless opportunities for memorable outings, including swift visits to the popular Boat Shed Restaurant in Manette, just a 15-minute boat ride away.

Experience the joy of cruising the Sound, circumnavigating the island, and exploring the countless possibilities for enjoying the sun, sea, and adventure—all from the comfort of your own waterfront sanctuary.

Your very own slice of paradise—a property with a storied history, enchanting architecture, and magnificent views that define the essence of coastal living on Bainbridge Island. It’s more than a home; it’s a story waiting for you to write the next chapter.
