Buy an icon. The home of Dig Nursery on Vashon is up for sale at $1,250,000. If you love plants but not your job, here's an opportunity to grow. (You may have to negotiate the business side separately.)
Dig Nursery has been around for about twenty years, more than enough time to become established. The owners built an institution and are now demonstrating the wisdom that goes along with knowing when to harvest. They decided it's time to chase other dreams and leave the door open for another dreamer. Buy the property that was home to a well-known business that had an established clientele, and a chance to get creative without having to spend all day staring at a computer screen.
The property covers 1.89 acres, which is impressively compact considering the impact they've had on the community. Of course it's going to include a greenhouse, several out buildings, and lots of opportunities to water things. As gardeners they got to grow an incredible variety of plants, and then have an excuse to buy and grow more because the other ones sold. It's like a chef finally getting to cook for more than the family because they bought a restaurant.
The main thing for sale is the house, because the property is zoned as Community Business; so, you could operate it as a business, again. At least your commute would be short. Your business will drive itself to you. Meanwhile, you get to live in a renovated 1900 two-story house that has 4 bedrooms, 2.25 bathrooms, and 2,270 square feet. The country kitchen isn't just for show. Stainless steel was used because it made sense, not because it was trendy. The decor is simple. No need for getting fussy after a day of fussing over plants and customers.
Just think, with the greenhouse available for events, and a parking lot big enough for weekend crowds, you'll finally have a big enough space for some epic parties. Centerpieces and fresh veggies can't get much more convenient.
