Wash Ashore at This Vashon Waterfront Mansion For $2.1M


A waterfront lot can be as long and skinny as an alley through the trees. Not this one. About three acres of waterfront that stretch along 279 feet of low-bank shoreline, which means your walk to the water doesn't involve a cliff, and then your walk along the beach actually takes some time, at low tide. There's a house or two, too. Out on Vashon there's a $2,100,000 1971 house with 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 5,580 square feet, a guest house, views of Seattle, and a lot more. Ah, the 70s, when contemporary houses had high-peaked roofs covered in cedar shake shingles, with floor to ceiling windows that let in the light. It was also the era of cheap energy, old growth timber, and no worries about sea levels rising. But modern technology has made houses more efficient, like the heat pump for heat and the double paned windows for the view. Beside the style that may induce flashbacks for some, there are amenities like a real sauna, a serious and appealing pool, a place for a grand piano, and a hot tub. There's even a shop for you to make...whatever it is you make.
