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

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 Bainbridge Island

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.

Magnificent views combined with incredibly private and peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! You’ll never want to leave. It is by far the best vacation rental we have stayed in. My wife and I loved the home and all it had to offer. The views, the privacy and the amenities the home are equipped with were all we needed to enjoy a wonderful time on Bainbridge Island. We spent a lot of our time just sitting on the deck reading, relaxing, enjoying our meals and just enjoying the beauty of the view that was set before us. It is so quiet and peaceful, there were times we felt we were the only people for miles. The hiking on the island was beautiful and the small towns were very friendly. Joe and Ana were wonderful and went way above what was expected. We will definitely be back.

Elegant, yet casual - hey it's the northwest!

  • 5 of 5

Three senior siblings and spouses spent 6 days having a wonderful time. This home has a perfect set-up with 3 master "suites", plus a powder room and a day-bed-room. We spent most the time on the deck playing cards, watching boats and wildlife, talking and eating. The BBQ produced fantastic steaks, and the kitchen is capable of producing anything...all the gear, dishes and glasses you need. We hiked in nearby forested areas, went wine-tasting, strolled through Bainbridge, and splashed in the ocean. The hosts are most generous in their supplies, and allowing us to enjoy this wonderful home and setting.

This is a lovely, peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation we had at Ana and Joe's home on Bainbridge Island. The house has amazing views and is very comfortable and well appointed. We loved eating dinner out on the deck, watching the sunset and the stars come out. It is close enough to the ferry and Seattle to take day trips, but we only went once, not wanting to leave the peaceful island. My only suggestions are that some BBQ tools and better kitchen knives would be a nice addition. Thank you for sharing your home.

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.
