What are the best things about this house?

Location, orientation, and design. This house is located close to town, but miles away from the city. The house faces south, and light pours in all year long, giving the living room a very homey and relaxing feel. The house is designed for families, you can view the living room from the kitchen, and the floor plan works with the way you want to live.

There’s a beautiful green space across the street from the house, perfect for those times when you need the kids to get out of the house and go burn off some energy.

Why is this location special?

It’s quiet, surrounded by parks, and convenient to town. You’ll live in an established community that cares for green space and the character of the island. This location is truly special, serenity and convenience together.

Take the one-hour test: Go East for an hour and be in Seattle at the Symphony or a Hawks game. Go West for an hour and be in a pristine rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula. Not many places can boast that type of accessibility.

Although located in town, the house is bordered by roads not used by city traffic. This is a huge advantage in town.

What’s good about Bainbridge?

Green spaces, amazing schools, easy access to Seattle. The best part about Bainbridge is the people. The people are highly educated, warm, and friendly. Bainbridge is filled with artists, engineers, doctors, artisans, musicians, hippies, and many more. Close to your house you will find a luthier (someone who works on stringed instruments), expert knitters and quilters, chefs, lawyers, sailors, and just plain good folk. Talking to friends on Bainbridge is like drinking a fine wine.

How are the schools?

So many amazing schools on Bainbridge you almost cannot go wrong. Walk to the high school, walk to Montessori, and many daycare options.

If this house and Bainbridge is so great, why are you selling it?

Life circumstances guide our family in a new direction. I know we’re leaving Bainbridge in good hands.
