Bainbridge Island: Woods to Live By

And I do mean woods–some of which were apparently harvested from the family farm to construct this unusual custom timber framed home. I’ve never noticed it nestled between the four story retirement home, condos and little cottages that surround it. It’s one of those in-the-wrong-location houses that belongs on a rolling hill.

Its biggest quirks? One: Refrigerator drawers. Four of them. And two: the second bedroom is big enough to accommodate a small corporation. But the extensive use of ash hardwood flooring, burnished copper concrete, and slate will probably appeal to the right buyer. Well-built no doubt, this place looks split-able into a duplex since you can only access the downstairs by going outside. The harbor view location itself is going to be worth a bundle because it’s down in what they are now calling “the marina district”. A big plus: the two coolest venues on the island are at the bottom of your driveway: Pegasus Coffee House where you can get your coffees and your teas and your sandwiches, and even catch a local music open mike hosted by the island’s favorite handy man/guitarist, Rick Barrenger, and the Harbor Pub–only the best food on the island complete with heated outdoor deck and and the funnest atmosphere going. (Snaps for the pub!). Interesting potential for a creative buyer as long as the area keeps appreciating. (Knock on wood.)
