Pacific Northwest Contemporary Home in Private, Retreat-like, Bainbridge Island Setting
Enjoy the peace and privacy of island living while enjoying all the finest interior finishes of a sophisticated home. With main level living for a couple and spacious guest quarters or childrenâ€™s bedrooms below, this is an ideal layout that will live well through all stages of life. The home invites in-door and outdoor entertaining, yet the rooms are a comfortable nurturing scale. Every interior design detail is well thought out and carefully chosen. From the Italian drawer pulls, imported light fixtures, and top-of-line appliances to the Cifial bath fixtures, there is a sensuous opulence that is never ostentatious, but focuses on self indulgence with lasting quality. Built in 2008 with green building practices, it offers the best in energy conservation.
The home is located on the southwestern side of Bainbridge Island in a totally private 1.22 acre setting. Walking trails lead from the property to join up with the extensive Gazzam lake trail system (insert link), so one can literally from their own backyard, walk or mountain bike 10+ miles on forested trails around Gazzam Lake and to the Port Orchard Narrows without crossing a road.
Better yet, access to Winslow shopping, Seattle ferry and the Agate Pass Bridge from the home is extremely quick and convenient. A short drive or bike ride and youâ€™re in Lynwood Center with itâ€™s classic â€˜50â€™s movie theatre that features foreign films, Walts grocery, and Treehouse Bar and CafÃ©. Crystal Springs pier, Fort Ward Park, and Eagle Harbor marina are also just a short jaunt away.
The owner has been a fan of architecture and design since she was a small child, dreaming, sketching, and pouring through the volumes of architectural books in her hometown library. An educator by profession, she admits that some may accuse her of being a frustrated designer – but au contraire; she has built, remodeled and lived in over 24 homes in her lifetime. In every home, she continues to discover what she likes and each home keeps getting better. Her current residence 7631 NE Opal Dr, Bainbridge Island, Washington is a proud case in point.
