Living on Bainbridge
Bainbridge has three types of residential settings. There are homes on larger parcels spread around the island, homes on smaller parcels that are fit more closely together in neighborhoods near town, and multiple residence communities generally found right in town. Part of what will allow rural Bainbridge to stay as it is, will be to welcome smaller, multi-family residences that are in town or nearby.
We’d Like to Be Your Neighbor
By offering this last group as a choice on Bainbridge, a number of good things happen. People can live in more affordable homes, commutes to Seattle are easier, stores and services are closer, biking and walking are sensible options, car expenses are reduced, maintenance and yard work are pretty much unnecessary, and more time to work, play or relax are achieved. Plus, Bainbridge can grow slowly in a way that lets the rest of the island keep doing things the way it has.
It’s a Possibility
If our ideas about the unused land between Ferncliff and Cave find agreement with our surrounding neighbors and the community overall, then we’re ready to create a new place for islanders to live that can offer them the lifestyle improvements mentioned above. To do this, a multi-family residential project on the Ferncliff Cave property makes sense to us, as the best use of the property for the people of Bainbridge and for the needs of the community.
We know islanders are always interested in keeping Bainbridge a place where the esthetic and practical values found here continue to be something well planned and expertly built. Those include that residences be tasteful in design, and of good quality in their construction. That’s why we’ve chosen to work with Bainbridge architect Charles Wenzlau and his talented team at Wenzlau Architects. As with all Olympic Property Group projects, our designers, engineers and craftsmen have earned the trust of the communities we serve, as professionals of great accomplishment who create projects of which we can all be proud.
