Vashon Island house description

This 1,125 SF west-side waterfront cottage is the quintessential rustic beach retreat! It is located just 2 miles from the north-end ferry terminal in beautiful Fern Cove, the jewel of Vashon Island. The setting is truly breathtaking, with tall cedar trees and unobstructed, panoramic views of Puget Sound. The house contains a main-level master bedroom with a queen bed and large bay window with amazing water views. The upstairs sleeping loft has two full beds. The vintage bathroom contains a pedestal sink and claw-foot tub & shower. There is a beautiful, updated kitchen which is a chef's delight. The main living room hosts an enormous river-rock fireplace, as well as a wall of French doors that open to an expansive waterfront deck. In addition, there is a cozy, detached guest cabin next to the house with another queen bed and more stunning views. The home is accessed via a short, yet steep, well maintained trail and stairway off of the main road. Come watch the eagles soar!


ACCESS TO HOME: The home is accessed via a well-maintained gravel trail and stairway off of the parking area next to the main road. Parts of the access are steep. There is one gently sloping switchback at the top, then a steep 70 step stairway, and then two short gently sloping switchbacks at the bottom of the trail. Total elevation drop from the top of the trail to the home is approx. 100-200 ft. Descending the trail takes approx. 5 minutes and is mildly taxing. Walking up may require substantial effort depending upon one's physical fitness, and is not for the faint of heart. However, the natural beauty and secluded waterfront setting make the home's unique access well worth the effort.
