The original home on this 6.2 acre heirloom quality property was constructed in 1916 by the world renowned Gaggin and Gaggin Brothers as a Summer home. The Gaggin Brothers designed the L.C. Smith Building, otherwise known as The Smith Tower, in Seattle. Bainbridge Island was a destination summer paradise for many of the titans of Seattle industry in the early 1900’s and the Rolling Bay area was one of the most popular locales. The current owners of this pristine 6.26 acre parcel are only the 4th owners of the property in over 100 years… they purchased the property in 1969, and, the land has been undisturbed in its current, natural state for generations!
The possibilities for this heirloom quality parcel are literally endless and the next owner can create his/her vision for the property. There are no critical areas, streams, creeks and/or wetlands on the property; it is high and dry. The parcel slopes gently from the NW corner (top) to the SE corner (bottom) and is rectangular in shape.
The City of Bainbridge Island planning department has confirmed that this property meets city zoning criteria for accommodation of up to 6 single family residences each on its own 1 acre lot per the long platting process. OR, the parcel can be short platted for up to 4 single family residences with designated open space. Public water is on the property as is a two bedroom septic system serving the residence. Each single family residence can also have its own full Guest House/ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit)!
The final and perhaps most desirable and interesting use of the property would be a legacy, heirloom type, family compound. Imagine your own home and private park in the middle of historic and forever loved Rolling Bay! This is an extremely rare and once in a generation opportunity to leave a footprint that will last for many lifetimes on one of the few remaining pristine and untouched large parcels of land on Bainbridge Island.
