Situated on more than 40 acres of pristine land with a half-mile of natural, untamed shoreline upon East Sound on Orcas Island in Washington state, Madroneagle is a special place that is a testament to craftsmanship, history and nature as illustrated by its organic integration with native surroundings.
The main house’s upper level is devoted to casual relaxation and recreation. It has a massive game room and a full bonus suite, along with numerous storage areas and a naturally lit landing that affords dramatic views over the great room and architectural structure.
The game room is a nearly one thousand square foot expanse of open-plan living space. Its open ceiling structure invites collections of hanging artifacts. On the opposite side of the house, a bonus suite with a wall of repurposed vintage Japanese lockers, large storage area and full bath can be used as long-term guest space, an apartment for live-in staff or as an autonomous studio or study.
The lower level of the home includes home office space and a central section dedicated to storing and enjoying wine, with a large, temperature-controlled cellar accessed by an archway that is sculpted from a natural Madrona trunk harvested from the property. A tasting area sits just outside, with easy access to the back patio for enjoyment alfresco.
The gardens that surround the main house and connect it to the other structures on the property offer meandering pathways, streams and a pond with water wheel.
The expansive property include 1,000′ of waterfront with trails, pond, tea house, shop, gym, and more. This secluded estate is listed for $9.45 million with Windemere Real Estate and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
