Wing Point Residence

Some properties are so special because of where they are and the effect they have on you that you just want to stay forever. This is one of those properties. If you have ever taken the Bainbridge ferry, then you have probably seen this home and the flagpole that marks the waterfront. Unassuming and peaceful, this house sits back and is protected by aging Madrona trees and a seawall.  Built in 1922 for the Fisher family, this house is a craftsman beauty. Wood beams and paneling are original to the house and at some point in time, had been “pickeled” which turned the wood gray. The owners had it meticulously restored to the original dark wood. It is a spacious 5 bedroom home that has a lot of built in features. It originally had two exterior front porches that faced the water and one of those porches has been enclosed and is now a sunroom. A second fireplace in a library area is a cozy room to curl up on a couch and enjoy. A large dining room as well. This house is a lovely example of a well built and large sized craftsman home. The land it sits on is extraordinary. Ferries go by and you almost feel as if they are going to hit the shore of this property. Just on the other side of the point is the amazing view of downtown Seattle. This property is very special. It has been in the same family since 1979 with no plans of ever selling or tearing down.
