Bainbridge cabins designed by Smith Tower architects listed for $1.1M

Two little houses in a lot full of forest

Tucked away in the woods in Bainbridge Island’s Rolling Bay area, two cabins, one main house and an adorable little guesthouse, sit on six acres. Constructed as a summer home in 1916 by Gaggin & Gaggin, the duo behind Seattle’s Smith Tower, the property is still a kind of relic from 100 years ago on the outside—and just has a few upgrades on the inside.

There’s plenty of space to lounge outside—from the meadow that surrounds the structures to the large front porch surrounds the main house, surrounded by a railing that doubles as a shelf or bench. The porch is also kind of a large welcome mat, leading up to two sets of wood-trimmed, glass French doors to the interior.

The larger of the pair leads into a cozy living room with wood-slat, exposed-beam ceilings, and a big centerpiece: an original brick fireplace. The other leads to a dining room with enough space to seat some extended family gatherings.

The wraparound porch also leads to the little guest house—which has its own sizable front porch—for wetter days when you don’t feel like walking through the grass.

Four families have owned this property over the past 100 years—the most recent one since the 1960s. Someone can take it through this century for $1.1 million.
