Vashon Island house description

Leave all your cares behind and come enjoy a beautiful waterfront experience on enchanting Vashon Island. Our home is a charming cottage complete with wood burning fireplace, full kitchen, and cozy spaces with wide open views of Inner Quartermaster Harbor and the Olympic Mountains beyond! This home sits on 1.5 acres of waterfront property, affording a completely private estate feel. In the backyard sit multiple mature producing fruit trees free for the picking in season! Set up a badminton net and build family memories, with views of the bay beyond. Have a bonfire at the water's edge at this low bank waterfront home. Explore the calm, safe waters of Inner Quartermaster Harbor.

The home itself has 3 private bedrooms with a roomy master suite and adjoining bathroom. The King size bed has been upgraded with a comfy pillow topper! The second upstairs bedroom is part of the original 1925 cabin and is completely paneled with knotty pine for a maritime feel. We now have placed a comfortable new Full size bed in the room. Immediately adjacent to this bedroom is the second bathroom with charming claw foot tub and vintage pedestal sink. The downstairs bedroom, is now sporting a nice new bunk bed and futon couch. The space doubles as a inviting recreation room, complete with foosball table and mini pool table as well as the TV/Stereo/DVD player. There is complimentary broadband Wi-Fi. Max, our bounding 8 year old dog loves this home and your doggy will too! Our pet fee is 15/day per dog. (2 Dog maximum. Sorry, no cats due to severe allergy).

An expansive deck overlooking the harbor comes complete with a gas BBQ and table/chairs for your outdoor dining pleasure. Or, if you choose, hop in the car and drive 10 minutes to one of several fine dining restaurants in Vashon town followed by a movie at Vashon Theater. Live music abounds at multiple venues on the island.

The home is on the Burton peninsula. Burton is the most coveted part of Vashon Island, within walking distance of stores, restaurants, and trails. Walk to Jenson Beach where a full service Kayak Rental Center awaits. Bring your own ski boat or fishing boat and use the public boat ramp at Jenson Point. This is truly island living at its best.

                      Sue grew up here and when the opportunity to acquire this waterfront property presented itself we jumped at the opportunity.
