Dreaming of a waterfront getaway or year-round island living? This 1905 charmer is the perfect retreat and has been lovingly restored with original fir floors and trim repurposed from the fir ceiling in the upper story, claw foot tub and French Doors opening to rocking chair front porch Harbor views. Comforts are not spared here with updates throughout... stainless kitchen, gas cooking, fireplaces and skylights that open to the blue sky in the upper sleeping suite. Perfectly situated near town, the inner Harbor and Tramp Harbor are ideal for paddle boarding or kayaking and always a still body of water in one or the other harbor. Named "Audubon View", the home is located at the isthmus between Vashon and Maury island. This unique south facing geographic location enjoys abundant bird life and activity. Eagle, Osprey, Blue Heron, King Fisher and a variety of duck and geese reside and frequent this area. Quartermaster Harbor is home to the Vashon Rowing Club and rowers can be seen training almost every morning and afternoon from the exceptional view of your living room or covered outdoor porch. And on July 4th, you have a front row seat for one of the largest fireworks shows in the Pacific Northwest. A large barge is brought into Quartermaster Harbor and when the sun sets, an amazing and elaborate firework display of pyrotechnics is presented to you, family and friends. Bring your hobbies! The property features small craft storage, office space and deluxe storage shed with loft. Pear, plum, grape, raspberry and blueberry are among the fruit trees growing on the property. Raised bed planters and amended soil has been brought in for healthy vegetable gardens. A cedar lined wood fired sauna is set at the rear of the property and has a glass fire compartment on the outside and heat base inside. This provides an outside view of the fire while taking breaks from the steamy sauna. This home meets Energy Star Air Changes per Hour Ratings and has been fitted with lumen equivalent energy efficient LED lighting throughout plus energy efficient double pane windows. Used as a vacation rental for the last 4 years, seasonal spring and summer rental makes this a great investment opportunity with bookings to capacity. The setting has privacy fencing, a variety of accessory buildings and an outdoor living space separate from the main house. This allows for many options of use. A dry, clean low walk-in basement is updated with pressure treated post and beam and black plastic covering the floor. Great for extra storage.
