Go back 99 years and see how a country estate was supposed to look; rustic on the outside, refined on the inside. This 1916 Dutch Colonial house on Vashon is asking $1,900,000 - and has been for over 850 days. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, plus 5,310 square feet in the living quarters. Then there are more buildings placed about the 1.69 acre Sound-front property. Why hasn't it sold? Something about the Dutch? Something about Colonials? Something about having to commute from Vashon? Whatever the reason, a 99-year-old house has demonstrated patience and can demonstrate more. The sellers, however, would probably prefer not to wait.
