Your neighbors may care more about the view of your house; but you may care more about the view from inside it. On the west side of Bainbridge, looking at the sun setting behind the Olympics, you get a view that few places can match. The price for the view is $1,239,000, but that comes with a 3 bedroom, 3 bath house on the saltwater shoreline. The lot may be long and skinny, as many waterfront lots are; but you also get to play on the beach at low tide, watch the sea hawks and eagles go by while only being a drive and a ferry ride away from downtown Seattle. You get plenty of room in the wood-paneled 4,712 square feet home. If you want something cozier, there's a small, two story retreat. If you want something more luxurious, there's a hot tub and a sauna. What you might want more than anything is the story behind why it hasn't sold in over a year. You might have to visit to find out. Meet the neighbors. Maybe they know.
