Back in the day you’d find rustic cottages, now, Day Island’s community is filled with remarkable waterfront and view properties. This one-of-a-kind home is where 1940’s charm connects to an impressive, custom designed home; built in 2007. You are getting a two-for-one deal here.
Breathtaking water views of the Puget Sound, a spacious open floor plan, plus a grand, oversized garage and shop attached to the main home are just a few of the incredible features of this Day Island home. The current owners expanded the square footage by building a 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths that connects to the original home.
Use the original home as a delightful mother-in-law (MIL) suite or have someone else pay your mortgage by making a vacation rental! The original home has 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen and a 4-car attached tandem garage. Large windows filter the natural light and show off the Puget Sound. The airy living room in the original home has a cozy fireplace, connected to the dining space. From the dining space, walk into the fully equipped galley kitchen. On the rear side of the original home are the two bedrooms, which have doors opening to the terraced backyard. Both bedrooms are wrapped in knotty pine, giving off warm cabin vibes.
The much larger and newly built home (2007) was inspired by the west facing views of the Puget Sound and desire to be a gathering spot within the community. The vaulted ceilings, large open kitchen, spacious floor plan and flow from inside to out, was designed for ease and enjoyment! French doors from the kitchen, open to the main-level covered balcony. Plenty of room to sit and take in the views of The Puget Sound and Fox Island.
The kitchen features tiled granite, large walk-in-pantry, plenty of counter and cabinet space plus a gas stove. Also on the main-level is the large living room with a gas fireplace, 1 full bathroom, and a flex space for an enlarging living area or second dining. Second set of french doors show the way to the backyard and patio; the lush grounds are tiered with established landscaping and fruit trees. The current owners will miss the great blue heron that lives in the big tree in the backyard.
Upstairs, there is an expansive Primary Suite, featuring a luxurious, 5-piece bath and a private balcony to watch the waves of the winter storms or soak up the summer sunsets. Overlooking the backyard are two guest bedrooms with oversized closets.
Arguable one of the most impressive things about this home is the garage and shop, connected the main home – a rarely to find within city limits! The oversized garage is that perfect place to store your boat, RV/ Camper or big toys. The combined square footage of both garage spaces is 2,619. Additionally, it’s plumbed for a bathroom and has the space to accommodate all of the projects you’re working on!
Minutes from Chambers Bay Golf Course, the Narrows Bridge, Highway 16, and Titlow (with beach access) plus many restaurants and neighboring eateries. A local favorite of the current owner’s is the nearby Narrows Brewing for fish and chips or dinner at Steamer’s Seafood Café.
This is your chance to own a wonderful home in the coveted Day Island community. Spectacular views, over 4,000 square feet plus a charming neighborhood.
