Discover the Romance and Splendor of Vashon Island
This magnificent Vashon Island property overlooks Colvos Passage with views of the Kitsap Peninsula and Olympic Mountains in the background! The heavily treed landscape slopes gently downward from Wax Orchard Road westerly towards Colvos Passage with some areas having Commanding Water & Mountain Views! Consisting of 5 contiguous tax parcels, the over 88 acres is located on the southwest side of Vashon Island directly across from Frog Holler Forest (a county-owned park with walking/horseback riding trails).
Potentially build a fabulous residential estate or develop into a possible subdivision. The property is zoned mostly RA-5, residential (which typically allows for 1 house/5 acres in King County). The gated entrance to the property along Wax Orchard Road leads to a former logging road which extends towards the middle of the acreage. A large portion of the property is generally level to gently sloping. There is over 100 feet of water frontage (bulk head/beach at low tide) along Paradise Beach Cove (accessible from Bates Walk Road). Bates Creek runs along the northern side of the property with some steep slopes and ravines leading down towards Bates Creek.
