Garden #6

This park-like property is designed for many uses, including as a community gathering and retreat space. Large scale sculptural pieces, pools of water, and vast Puget Sound views make this property near Point Robinson on the east end of Maury Island a true island treasure.

More than 40 years ago, sculptor Gar LaSalle teamed up with his former landscape design teacher, Richard Haag, to bring the vision of an Italianesque estate to life. Haag’s award-winning credits include Gas Works Park in Seattle and the Bloedel Reserve. LaSalle and Haag’s artistic partnership has brought an evolving serene public park sensibility to a serene private setting at this Vashon property.

The gardens are a work in progress, featuring three large ponds and a waterfall. Lawns studded with chestnut trees roll into an adjacent vineyard. The grounds also contain major sculptures by LaSalle. New columns by Russian sculptor Grigory Reva have been commissioned to surround the flower and vegetable beds.

A spacious stone patio off the modernist home designed by Northwest architect Wendell Lovett offers an unobstructed 180-degree view.

This property offers a touch of Italian landscape melded with the unique vistas of the Northwest.
