Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description) 3.5 Baths-Sleeps 6 adults & 2 child

Wonderful low-bank, west facing waterfront home.

This stately 3 Bedroom/3.5 Bath home is surrounded by expansive lawns on three sides and sits upon a private 1 acre+ lot with 150’ of low-bank waterfront. A lighted sport court and serene reflection pond enhance this property, with a 2- person kayak and mooring buoy available for great shoreline activities and exploring.

Why do people who know Bainbridge Island seek out the west side? In one word-sun! When it’s cold and getting dark in most other locations, enjoy the full afternoon sun and late sunsets afforded by staying on the west side. This means more time on the beach or kayaking up and down the shoreline.

Five viewing decks give you many choices for indoor/outdoor living. A spacious covered deck off of the living room is perfect for outdoor dining, game playing, reading or watching the eagles, heron and abundant waterfowl around you.

Gourmet kitchen, specialty slab granite, 6 burner Viking range, prep space with an unbeatable garden and water view. Mahogany island and walk-in pantry. Dishes and flat wear for 12, blender, toaster, microwave and coffee maker.

The beds are outfitted with new mattresses and fine linens. Upper level bathrooms boast marble showers, tub surrounds and floors with in-floor heat.

Just over the hill discover the most dynamic new area of the island-Lynwood Center! Pleasant Beach Village brings elegant shops and dining at the Manor House, with the historic Lynwood Theatre, a small French bakery and yoghurt shop. Also, the Treehouse Café is the best island spot for family dining and offers live music.

You will be surrounded by serene beauty and peacefulness in our home. Fall asleep listening to the gentle lapping of the water beneath your room. Nearby you may enjoy a hike to Gazzam Lake or walks through the Grand Forest or Fort Ward State Park , and just 10 minutes from the main town! A short 35 minute ferry ride delivers you to Seattle and all it offers: Pike Place market, the Seattle Center with Space Needle and Chihuly Exhibit ,the Aquarium and Zoo and much more. It's all here waiting for you!

Please note: Check-in is 4 pm and check-out 10 am. Thank you!

About Joe and Ana Richards

We are both full time Real Estate Brokers with the best company on the Island - Windermere!

Once Bainbridge has captured you, we will be honored to help you find your home to begin living the island lifestyle!

Joe and Ana Richards purchased this house in 2005

Why Joe and Ana Richards chose Puget Sound North

The property has over 150' of private waterfront, over an acre of land and the most beautiful setting to watch the sunsets turn into a sky that Maxfield Parrish dreamt of!

What makes this house unique

This property has a magical feel, which we felt when we first visited. The home is sited south by southwest and sits out on a slight promontory allowing views up and down the shoreline. The lovely side yard is accented by a reflection pond and graceful weeping willow tree overlooking the beach.

The 'Starlight Lounge' sits as the upper-most deck - watch the sky move through beautiful shades of blue through twilight into the deep star-studded night.

This is a perfect location offering beauty, nature and privacy.

A beautiful home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home from July 18 to July 24. It is very private and you can't get closer to the water then this home. The house is very comfortable and has views from every room. My 10 year old son and I also enjoyed the basketball court! Despite the very private feeling we still found getting to the local sites to be relatively easy. The house was a great launching pad to head west to Olympic National Park. We took the ferry across to Seattle and upto Edmonds on four occassions and were amazed at the ease of using the ferry system from the island. Highly recommend this location.

Beautiful home and amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years and this was by far one of the best! Beautiful home in excellent condition and located in the best part of Bainbridge Island. Home was very well stocked with all the necessities and then some. Our kids loved the lighted basketball, kayaking and badminton! The grounds were very well maintained and we had a view from every window. Loved the privacy and quiet setting yet close to shopping and easy to get around. We can't wait to come back. Thank you for having such pride of ownership and keeping this home in such great condition! It's a gem.

Beautiful home, gorgeous setting, lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home, in a lovely setting with water views. We had 5 seal "friends" greet us on the nearby floating dock most mornings. The two upstairs master suites and third downstairs suite offer lots of privacy.

A welcome basket with some essentials was a lovely thought, and the kitchen was nicely stocked with basic equipment and supplies. Bainbridge is beautiful, with lovely parks and trails (go to the Grand Forest) and easy day-trip access to Poulsbo, Seattle, Fort Townsend and more. The hosts are extremely helpful. We would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for a family get together. The owners are awesome, and the house is beautiful and clean. Right on the beach, so great for beach combing and the view is outstanding. Highly recommend.
