Property description

Why drive for hours for some peace and quiet in the woods, when you can be there in 30 minutes from Seattle? Relax on the deck with a drink and your loved one while listening to the creek below nad birds in the trees all around you. Visit our lovely house on a wooded five acres on Vashon Island, just a quick charming ferry ride from Seattle, Washington. The ferry dock is an easy 30 minute drive from Seattle's Sea Tac Airport and the ferry departs every 40 minutes or less.

Our property is set well back from a littl-traveled road, leaving you in a sunny opening in the midst of a beautiful collection of soaring pines and firs. Neighbors cannot be seen, nor heard. The house overlooks Judd Creek and from our large deck, salmon can be seen spawning in the creek in the fall. The house is modern, but homey and warm with a very large skylight over the open plan living area, which includes the living room, dining room, and kitchen.

The house has three bedrooms, one with a king bed looking out through glass doors to the deck and the woods beyond. The second has a queen bed and a view of the front garden. The third is smaller, but also has a queen bed with a view of the woods.

The kitchen is new and features top of the line appliances, concrete countertops and cabinets by Henrybuilt. The living room features a raised hearth fireplace and new furniture. Both the living room and kitchen have walls of glass that look out on the deck and the woods beyond. We have a full glass tiled slate bathroom and a large soaking tub, which offers a beautiful view of the woods. The shower is also glass, offering a "bathing outdoors" experience.

There is a fire pit area with table and chairs, horseshoe pits in the middle of the lawn, a flower-covered gazebo for coffee in the am, and extensive lawns and garden surrounding the house. Pets are welcome and usually happy to roam the woods endlessly. A gentle path leads you down the bank to the creek, where a dip on a hot summer day can be fun. The deck is large, with a beautiful view overlooking the hillside and the creek and our birdwatching is unbeatable.

A famous island guide is availalbe for private trips on foot or by kayak around the island.

Our small island is bursting with activities and enthusiasm. Fine dining, fun shopping in artists' studios, artisanal products, local produce and farmer's markets are avaiable yera round. Vashon's many beaches, parks, trails and historic landmarks are close by and easy to find.

On the other hand, curling up in front of the fire for a good read while it rains is often our favorite activity.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

Why the Owner Chose Vashon Island, WA, USA:
I was looking for a property outside of Seattle that was easy to get to from the mainland yet unique and secluded. I fell in love with Vashon Island and it's low key island feel. The property is wild and completely secluded but only 45 minutes from downtown Seattle.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is completely isolated, no other lights or homes are visible from the house. Yet it is 10 minutes from downtown Vashon. The ferry ride to Vashon is calming and gorgeous and people are very friendly. There are plenty of outdoor adventures to be had and you are sure to leave feeling refreshed and recharged.
