Some houses are snapped up in days. Others take years. The sellers should be commended for their patience.
Here's a house on a peninsula, in a cove, on an island, in the Sound. The location description is some cartographer's dream. Maybe that's who this house is waiting for. For over a year this 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 3,962 square foot house has been for sale. It is a protected waterfront by Hidden Cove Road. There's even an island in the neighborhood. The lot is 0.31 acres, so there's enough land for gardening; and Bloedel Reserve is close enough if you just want to enjoy what the professionals can produce. The lot has 165 feet of waterfront, which is plenty of room to relax and enjoy. Inside, the kitchen and main bath have the expected and appreciated marble, wood, tile, and glass. Up the winding stairs is an another floor, a continuation of a sweeping bay window that looks out on a bay, or at least a cove. The bonus room is bigger than some houses, 1,253 square feet, and has a separate entrance. As long as zoning approves, that's a good space for a small business. So, why hasn't anyone spent $998,000 (or originally, $1,048,000)? Maybe the competition is tough. Maybe people wanted deeper moorage. Maybe people want to be just a bit closer to downtown. Maybe it is just waiting for the right person.
