Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Bainbridge Island - Bainbridge Beach House
5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10 (additional accommodations on property)
Secluded 1.4 acre luxury waterfront estate on the eastern shore of Bainbridge with stunning sunrises. Watch eagles fish for their daily meals, deer canter through the woods and along the beach, sea otters sunbathe on shore and other marine and wildlife enjoy the serenity of the setting.
The property begins with a tree-lined driveway of mature evergreens that continue until the beachfront begins. A stream runs through the south end of the property, emptying into the sound, helping to create the second largest estuary in the United States (Puget Sound is not quite as large as the Chesapeake Bay).
Designed as a private retreat, this spacious 2006 Nantucket style home takes full advantage of its no bank waterfront setting and panoramic views of Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier and directly across the sound, Seattle's Ballard and Sunset Hills neighborhoods. With 279 feet of private beach to enjoy all of the time, the stretch of coastline to run, walk and explore literally expands for miles when the tide is out.
On the main level multiple sets of French doors open from the great room onto a limestone patio and the beach/waterfront beyond. The elegant, yet casual decor of white walls, ceilings and woodwork are contrasted by dark hardwood floors, enhancing the view and sense of being right on the water. The wood burning fireplace in the sitting area adds warmth to the entire great room and the formal dining area takes in the spectacular sound and mountain views.
The gourmet kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to prepare meals for large gatherings or just prepare a single and very special cup of coffee - French drip or Cappuccino! Custom cabinetry, limestone countertops, Waterworks farm style sink/faucet, Viking appliances, including a gas range top and electric ovens invite guest chefs to create memorable meals.
Just off the entryway, there is a formal TV/lounge with flat screen TV (expanded cable, HBO and Starz) and next to it a powder room and then a large coat closet.
For those who like to comb the beach, row, fish, swim and scuba dive, there is a three-quarter bathroom with large walk-in shower on the main level - enter through a side door on south side of the house next to kitchen. Across from the three-quarter bathroom is a large laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer, iron and ironing board.
The second level has a large master bedroom suite with views of the sound and mountains. It has a king-sized bed, gas fireplace, large flat screen TV with basic cable (99 stations). The master bathroom also overlooking the sound, has a picture perfect view of Mt. Rainier to enjoy from the large soaking tub with Carrara marble surround. This bathroom also has two pedestal sinks, toilet in private enclosure and walk-in shower with glass door, lined with Carerra marble, provides another breathtaking view of Mt Rainier!
There are three more guest bedrooms on the second level, all with queen-sized beds and one bedroom has a gas fireplace. There is another full bathroom on this level, which opens to a double vanity sink with Carrara marble countertop and a door that closes off the tub/shower and toilet area for privacy.
The third level is divided into a second TV room with basic cable and DVD player. There are French doors opening to a small balcony overlooking the sound and Mt. Rainier. The fifth bedroom is on the other side of the TV room and has a 3/4 bed that sleeps two and two twin beds and has a lovely water and treetop view.
Radiant heat throughout the entire home keeps the temperature constant and comfortable.
The patio off the main level has outdoor furniture, including table and chairs, lounge chairs and a new gas barbecue grill. There is a fire pit on the beach for nightly bonfires and the owner provides the firewood!
