Sellers Story: 8346 Grand Ave - Where Eagles Soar

King 5, a local TV Station, recently did an exposé on Bainbridge Island called: “Bainbridge, The Nantucket Of The Northwest”

It is exactly this kind of property that evokes those feelings of Nantucket. A gorgeous, shingled Cape Cod-style home perched high upon a bluff. You have sweeping views of Mt. Baker to the North and snow-capped Cascade mountains over the Eastern skyline before you even catch a glimpse of the main attractions. The Puget Sound stretches before you with sailboats, cruise ships, and ferry boats. As the sun sets, Seattle’s lights start to twinkle across the water, all seen from the deck where you and friends enjoy a beautiful summer evening.

The salty air, sounds of laughter, and moments that memories are made of abound. Then, it happens, just at sunset, the eagles begin to soar and dive for their dinner. Right in front of you, the show is beginning. The mother eagle is teaching her fledgling to hunt and fly,...

Much is the story of Mike and Gabrielle Arends, as their two fledglings are flying the coop. Mark is off to Western Washington University, and Madeline is off to Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland. Alas, the nest is larger than mom and dad need.

They will miss the five minute walk to the Wing Point Golf Course.

Every islander knows how coveted the three minute drive or fifteen minute walk to the ferry is!

This is a place where the guest suite above the garage will never be empty - if you invite friends and family, they will come! Whether you decide to rent it as an Airbnb, or save it for those you know and love, this is one of those magical Bainbridge properties that will have the next owners exclaiming, “We are so glad we moved to Bainbridge!”
