Enjoy the Vashon lifestyle in this extraordinary, renovated farmhouse property. This sunny, view home on four acres of park-like grounds is a treat for the eyes and the senses. Entirely remodeled over the last five years, it features over-sized windows to take in the views of the Olympic mountains and the great afternoon sun, two full baths with showers and a claw foot tub, day rooms open to one another and to the view, a fully remodeled chef’s kitchen with induction cooktop and high end appliances as well as hundreds of details sure to appeal to the discerning guest.
In addition to a spectacular interior with high ceilings, luxurious baths, two good-sized bedrooms and total bedding for up to six, the house has a gorgeous ipe wood deck off the living room, facing the Olympic mountains. The deck is the perfect sunny spot to enjoy cocktails or dinner al fresco. The bones of the house may be vintage turn-of-the-century farmhouse but the soul of the home is very much the Vashon that people dream about.
This vacation home is nearly in the center of a four acre property gently sloping to the west towards Puget Sound. There is a two acre meadow below the home’s western face as well as manicured lawns with mature fruit trees in all other directions. It’s a perfect spot to enjoy the quiet of the island. Though private from its neighbors, the home is located just three miles from the Vashon village and ten minutes to the Seattle passenger and car ferries, making it not just relaxing but practical if you want to combine this piece of heaven with sightseeing to Seattle and beyond. It’s also an ideal spot should a guest wish to commute a bit. But once here, why would you?
Whether your passion is hiking, biking, kayaking or just walking the island this very special home makes a perfect base of operations. Even if you’ve just come back to the island to reconnect with family and friends, this place will immediately put you in the mood. You’ll likely wonder why you ever left.
We had been looking for acreage, sun, and views close to Seattle, but with the feel of a remote retreat. When we first saw this incredible property on Vashon Island, we fell in love with the westward sloping meadows and the 100-year-old Norwegian-built farmhouse, and we knew that we could transform it into the perfect getaway! Now with the house completely updated, a beautiful new deck and park-like surroundings, it's the ideal place to kick back and enjoy island life.
