Become part of an established and beautiful cohousing community on magical Vashon Island. My house has four bedrooms, two up and two down, and two full baths (one with a Jacuzzi tub). One of the downstairs bedrooms has its own entry off a newly built deck. The living room ceiling is vaulted and a graceful fir-trimmed staircase goes up the back wall to the landing and mezzanine area above. The floors are wood and the location is secluded. The house is very beautiful and livable. The price is $387,000. Please call my real estate agent, Jean Bosch, for more information. Her cell number is 206-919-5223. Vashon Cohousing is made up of 18 charming homes, each on its own lot. The 12 acre property has been laid out to bring neighbors together and foster community. Our large and beautiful common house looks over a lawn and the community gardens, with farms beyond. Our community is blessed with wonderful fruit trees, and is nestled in a forested property within easy walk of Vashon town. Your guests will have comfortable accommodations in one of our three guest rooms in the common house. There are laundry facilities in the building, as well as two rooms for kids and games, a big kitchen, dining room that can seat a big party, and a comfy living room with a river rock fireplace. Each homeowner also shares ownership of the common house and all of the land. The members here range in age from 1 to 70, with a nice cohort of kids that make the place lively. We have several young families, some empty nesters, hard working professionals, and retirees. We do most of the property maintenance and improvements ourselves at regular work parties, and meet as a group twice a month. There are several active committees and occasional community meals. Vashon is a progressive and civic-minded place. There is an active community council, a farmer’s market, good schools, alternative health care professionals, a wonderful movie theater and thriving arts of every kind. We have beautiful waterfront parks and lots of playfields, a skate park and a well-loved library. It is a convivial and welcoming place to call home. It truly has the feel of rural country living, combined with the best elements of city life. Vashon Island is connected by car ferry to both Seattle and Tacoma, and the ride is just 15 minutes. A foot passenger-only ferry goes direct to downtown Seattle. Many Islanders commute to work in Seattle or Tacoma.
