On June 23, Misty Isle Farms was featured on Evening Magazine‘s “Unreal Estate.” As Vancour told King 5’s Eric A Riddle, “to be this close to Seattle and have a 500 acre property, this is pretty rare.” The segment covered a couple of in-home highlights, the 80 square foot shower area and the state-of-the-art climatized wine cellar, before discussing the true value of the property: the land. As Vancour described, Misty Isle Farms boasts unparalleled landscaping with 3,000 varieties of trees and rose types, numerous man-made water features (one of which is 3 acres), 8 miles of bike and horse trails, two PGA standard golf greens and a driving range, a private runway, and plenty of space for horses or cattle.
As the segment ended, Vancour told Evening Magazine, “you’ve got it all here. You’ve got your own sanctuary,” apropos given the sheer grandeur of Misty Isle Farms.
Misty Isle Farms has also received other attention from the media, as it previously was voted “Home of the Week” on the Puget Sound Business Journal and was also featured in Sotheby’s International Realty’s Perspectives.
Listed at $43,000,000, this 525-acre land portfolio is comprised of 47 tax parcels, a private lake, driving range with a pitching and putting green to PGA standards, equestrian barns, miles of trails and a 2,200-foot private landing strip with helipad.
The largest island in south Puget Sound, Vashon Island is slightly larger than Manhattan and accessible either by ferry and private boat or aircraft into Seattle. The island retreat has more than 3,000 specimen trees planted within and around the perimeter of the ranch comprising some 200 varietals. The grounds are maintained by a full-time, registered arborist. In addition to the three-acre man-made lake, there are numerous water features that flow beneath six artisan bridges connecting expansive brick laid pathways throughout the private arboretum.
The 6,500 square foot main residence is just one of eight single-family homes on the estate and boasts a stocked cellar with a vintage wine collection. Originally crafted as an Arabian Horse Ranch, the equestrian estate features fenced grass pastures, world-class stables and even a 12,000 square foot indoor arena.
