This thoughtful and welcoming home blends form and function to offer understated elegance, craftsmanship, and comfort. Situated on 14+ acres on three utterly private parcels, this estate whispers of its treasures: Sunny western exposure. 275 feet of low-bank waterfront. Abundant recreation, from boating to bocci. Two lovely guest houses, one adjacent to the main house and one secluded. Art Studio. Media room. Refined and thoughtful lighting, indoors and out. Superb appliances (Viking, Subzero, Miele). Exceptional earthquake engineering. Multiple outdoor eating spaces, including on covered porches with clear cedar decking. Great equestrian potential, with trails and pastures. Extensive security, audio, communications, and home-automation infrastructure. The estate is green, with low-cost geothermal heating and cooling and drought-tolerant gardens. The home exudes an intimacy formed from features such as cozy sleeping and reading nooks that supplement a total of five bedrooms in the three houses. Nearby you'll find golf, swimming, tennis, moorage, equestrian facilities, wineries, parks, hikes, a dozen restaurants, and schools so strong that many students commute in from Seattle. Vashon Island has the rural charm and laid-back atmosphere of the San Juan Islands, but it's in King County and only a 15-minute ferry ride from Seattle. There are car ferries to Seattle, Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula, and a passenger boat to the heart of downtown Seattle. This Vashon retreat is just 45 minutes door-to-door from Sea-Tac Airport, and yet it's a world apart.
