If you are into nostalgia & history this is your thing, look no further. Located on the isthmus that connects Vashon & Maury Islands, the Old Portage Store was the site of the first ferry landing on the island & the first rural post office. The 1.69 acre parcel has just under 400 feet of no bank waterfront on Puget Sound. The adjacent property to the west, which is also for sale, fronts Quartermaster Harbor, making the proximity to water on both sides unparalleled. The Neighborhood Business zoning allows a variety of opportunities on this unique property. In addition to the store, there is also a 3 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor & an adjacent 3 bd cottage, with a combined total of approx. 4500 sf. There is also a detached 3 car garage.
First time on the market - privacy and a spectacular 5.56-acre compound near the town center! Deer-fenced gardens with an Asian flair and a natural water feature, surround this 1740 sq. ft. home. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and gracious spaces throughout. A two-car garage and shop with a studio above, provide additional storage and work space, as do two smaller outbuildings. A private sanctuary of rolling fields, duck ponds, gardens and forest - a personal paradise!
