In the middle of Vashon Island just off Vashon Highway Southwest, this boxy, white farmhouse has been remodeled with a modern sensibility—and accommodations for many. The four-bedroom residence is both a cozy home and a thriving vacation rental business, and the currently plant-filled interior hints at the other business housed on the grounds: a nursery.
The home offers plenty of spaces to sit in the sun, with two levels of balconies and a window-lined sunrooms.
Inside, most of the basic bones have been preserved, but given a clean, minimalist look that lends itself well to leafy roommates.
It means that newer additions, like modern bathroom tile and paper light fixtures, blend well with the more historic elements.
On the grounds, xeric—or drought-resistant—landscaping surrounds multiple outdoor gathering spaces and patios, possibly a future event space.
Having a working nursery onsite means a large greenhouse and outbuildings—which could stay a nursery or serve another purpose.
The whole property—home, grounds, and all—is listed for $995,000.
