On the shore of Puget Sound is a one-of-a-kind creekside retreat that allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and give way to nature and peace. Welcome to Fauntleroy Creek Retreat on the Sound.
Lush woodlands set the scene and a flagstone path leads to the entry. The serene feeling is undeniable from the moment you step foot on this magical property.
Light and bright spaces offer unique views from every room. Thoughtful attention to design detail and sustainable elements are strewn throughout the entire home and grounds.
The current owners of this incredible property have paid meticulous attention to salvaging, reusing, recycling, and repurposing at every opportunity. While all the windows in the home are new, the window that was once in this space was repurposed as the garden shed window. This is a lifestyle home built for a lifetime.
The downstairs of this home has been completely renovated and appropriately named "The Mermaid Suite." Custom mosaic tiles in the bathroom, with a boutique hotel-like feel. The couch is a built-in pull out bed that has been custom made. Also completely plumbed, wired, and permitted for a mother-in-law apartment. Private entrance from the garden.
The Fauntleroy Creek was in need of full restoration. The community pulled together with large help from the homeowners to bring this creek back to life, creating a haven for wildlife to seek refuge. Coho salmon find their way back to the creek every November, and otter regularly visit, creating slides into the creek. The sound of running water echoes along the path and through the property. It's magical and serene, and unique in every way.
Vashon Island, the Olympic Mountains, eagles, otter, and orcas keep this vibrant beach exciting. At low-tide, explore the sea floor and see urchins and starfish clinging to the pier pilings. The salt in the air lingers and passers by take in the beauty of the surroundings. Where the creek meets the water's edge, an estuary is created for birds to seek refuge and calm water. This property is more than a home on the water, it's an experience one must have in person to fully appreciate.
