Vashon Island house description
Discover island lifestyle in this artistically renovated, contemporary farmhouse property. Convenient mid-isle location, and only 3 miles from Vashon town center. A five minute walk reaches a rare wetland tidal salt marsh that opens onto to KVI beach, one of Vashon's best sandy beaches (about 1 mile in length). Birders will enjoy the wide variety of both migrating and 'local island' fowl who live in this water system. From the home, expect sunrise views and soaring bald eagles and red-tailed hawks over the expansive views of Puget Sound from any of the 3 east-facing decks. Take advantage of the large covered front porch in case of rain. The half-acre gardens have been enthusiastically landscaped to reflect a variety of outdoor 'rooms.'
Two en-suite bedrooms occupy the second floor -- the large master suite offers a vaulted ceiling with ceiling fan, king sized bed, large 4 piece bath with shower and soaker tub. Both rooms in the master suite offer views of Puget Sound. The second west-facing bedroom offers queen bed, private bath with shower. Main floor features an open entertaining area: kitchen, dining and family room. A large deck opens off the dining room. Smaller deck with propane BBQ opens off the lounge. Contemporary kitchen is updated with high end appliances and gas cook top. First floor also offers a separate library/media room which includes a large window seat and wood fireplace. Powder room and laundry room are also conveniently located on the first floor. A separate studio/guest room with private entrance includes a double-sized window seat/bed. The space can accommodate a personal practice for yoga, pilates or dance, or just a quiet 'away' space for reading or meditating. Includes powder room with toilet and sink. Most of the artistic architectural features of the house are from the hands of local Vashon artists. This special home offers both a quiet retreat and a central place to explore Vashon Island and Puget Sound.

About the owner: We have lived on and off Vashon Island for over 20 years. Each time we've relocated, we are always drawn back. We currently split our time between Vashon and Vancouver, BC.
Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island:
We purchased this particular property for the view and the location: mid isle and close to the beach. It had just the right 'bones' from which we could express our own renovation and gardening ideas.
